Book of The Month. The Four Agreements.

I have the full edition and pocket sized of “The Four Agreements.”
In The Four Agreements, bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love. – A New York Times bestseller for over a decade.

I’m going to recommend a few books over the coming months to add to your reading list. Starting it off is “The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. It’s a life changing book on perspective. Initially given to me as a gift, after reading it and being so enlightened and inspired – I’ve given it as a gift many times and always recommend it.

Father’s Day Reflections. Celebrating My Father.

Though it’s been decades – not a single days goes by when I don’t think of or miss my Dad -Rev.John Watley Jr.

I’m glad I was able to know him, many kids don’t have relationships with their Dads unfortunately. My father the first one to claim my destiny as a music star. He was always bragging about me his “Princess” his “Superstar.” He didn’t live to see all of it but his prophecy for me came true. My Dad instilled in me many pearls of wisdom and character that continue to inspire and keep me strong ..my Dad was also charismatic in and out of the pulpit, a showman, first stylish male figure I saw, never wore jeans, always read the newspaper paper, made sure I read the encyclopedia, and so many strict rules that I grew to appreciate once I grew up. He had a great smile (I have his smile and forehead, and cheekbones) was a visionary in the COGIC a fact that also got him excommunicated because he openly accepted gay people and spoke on it. This is a subject I learned about later growing up through my Mom. He had love for all; embraced and created the concept “Christmas In August” (don’t wait to be charitable or giving, and don’t wait to use your nice things or to celebrate life). Seeing how the church people did him made me not religious or one of organized religion – but more of a spiritual person. I cover this in my in progress memoir.

I’m an Aquarian like him – his birthday is the day before mine. He was outside the box – I got that from him. My Dad loved fresh salads and spicy foods-I do too!


His sudden passing in 1982 changed how I live my life – cherish each day and those you love-never take either for granted. I can always hear him saying “It’s not what other people think of you -it’s what you think of yourself “ “.. only the strong survive” “always have your own money..” endless gems.

Continue to Rest In Peace Dad.
Happy Father’s Day.

Note: I have no pictures of my father and I together- at one one our family lost everything in storage when we went through a tough time. I have only a couple of him. He would have loved seeing Tiger Woods success I’m sure.

I love this one of him as a young man-making history in golf, he endured racism coming up of course and wanting to be a pro golfer at the time.

My Dad would give up his passion for the sport to follow his own fathers path into the ministry.

Tune in on June 17, 2020 12 PM PST  Youtube BMI At Home Jam Sessions  

I continue to shelter in place, as the many are ignoring the fact we are still in a pandemic-always thankful for music no matter what’s going on. As a songwriter, I’ve been with BMI since 1987. (BMI) is one of four United States performing rights organizations, along with the ASCAP, SESAC, Pro Music Rights, and Global Music Rights. It collects license fees on behalf of songwriters, composers, and music publishers and distributes them as royalties to those members whose works have been performed.
