Hi, I'm Jennifer
I don’t just listen to music, I devour it. I
let the experience touch my soul. I listen
to a song repeatedly to hear something
new each time such as a background voice, a riff from the bass, a unique
beat or an unidentifiable sound. I listen for where the singer took a breath,
where I got goosebumps and why. It doesn’t matter what genre, if it is
genuine, it touches the same place in me. When I am listening to music it is
a whole-body experience. In my head, I imagine where a note might be placed. My hands float with the melody involuntarily and my eyes close for the heart-wrenching inflections. My soul is free, and my mind is open. While in traffic, I once rear-ended a VW bug hitting a high note with my eyes closed (no one was hurt).
I am a classically trained vocalist. I’ve been known to pull
over on the highway just to write down a thought or record
something on my phone. I stopped singing for many years
because one person told me I couldn't sing. I didn’t believe
in myself. I didn’t understand the gift and what it meant to
my soul! We all have a gift. I encourage you to find yours. It
is in your soul. Believe in it, trust and nurture it. When you
start to own it, no one can take it from you.
I am a proud Colorado native. My book is printed in Colorado
and most people involved in these projects are Colorado
people. I love animals, there is so much we can learn from
them if we would humble ourselves. Oh, and I love coffee.
Thank you for your purchase and support.
