I Rise

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge Madonna fan and have been since my teens. Her new album, Madame X is being released on June 14th this year and she’s already released 2 singles from it. One of the singles is Medellin which I really like and she performed it last night […]

This Year So Far

This year, 2019, has been interesting for me. I have always been highly attuned to my own personal energy and that of those around me. The slightest shift in one’s energy, imperceptible to others, I often pick up on without trying. The energy of my own life started to shift towards the end of last […]

Mid-Term Reckoning

MID-TERM RECKONING I, Donovan Lord, always vote.  It doesn't matter what the purpose of the election is, if I'm eligible to vote, I will. I vote in my local and municipal elections, statewide elections, and national elections.  I do this because first of all, it's a right so many have fought for throughout American history, [...]

Kindness

Recently I've experienced some major emotional minefields in my life.  These past few weeks have been filled with a sense of unfairness and a lack of understanding from others. It’s a sad statement on the state of the world today when kindness is an oddity and not the norm.   These days people are revered for their [...]

Bring It On

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fd1MDnzJ9U by Donovan Lord   Lately I, Donovan Lord, have felt out of sorts, like I'm restrained yet like I'm about to burst free at the same time. I feel like something big is about to happen in my life - for better or for worse.  I'm not sure what it is, I just have [...]

Kacey Musgraves

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUl_QQAj_oA&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ8xqyoZXCc&feature=player_embedded I first discovered Kacey Musgraves in 2013 with the release of her album Same Trailer Different Park which is an incredibly introspective and beautiful album.  My faves are Dandelion, Merry Go Round and of course, Follow Your Arrow.  She really came out as a powerhouse in "new country" but she's not even like the [...]

Macarons

I was watching a new show a friend recommended called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. In it, Jane Lynch plays a guest role in which she mentions macarons.  I suddenly remembered how much I loved these delicate yet intense (much like myself) treats! So I broke out my French Pastry cookbook and got to work. It [...]

Writing Milestone

I thought I would post this to show a tangible, physical illustration of my many years of hard work on my memoir. It's easy to talk about it and it doesn't seem real to others or even to oneself until it's in physical form, but here is my work (and my agony). I finally completed [...]
