Our Latest Blog Entry

March 1, 2023

The month of March reminds me that spring is near and after a  dusting of snow that covers Main Street in this little mountain town, the sound of the birds singing is a good sign that spring is on its way.

There will be some “singing” tonight starting @7pm at The Lariat’s Open Mic.

Join The Whiskey Sweets @ 8pm.

The Best is Yet to Come!

February 22, 2023

8 years ago this week, on a wing and a prayer,

I opened the doors to a little 150 sq. ft. hair studio in a little mountain town in the Arkansas River Valley.  

The studio is alittle bigger now and 

It is quite fascinating to watch a small mountain town grow into

a bigger, busier tourist town. 

There are many moving parts & I am learning that everyone has a part.

The word "community" is new to me and I am intrigued to watch this community unfold. 

In my quest to keep learning, 

a recent "101" in business reminded me that I can do hard things & do them well & that someday people will remember we are all on the same side.

Everyone has a part in the moving parts.

Happy Valentines Day!

Is today for Cupids shooting little arrows thru red hearts or as the

Daily Lama reminded me today,

maybe it can be a path to unconditional love. 

Daily Lama

While football games, ufo's & rumors of war cover the news narrative,

I try to grasp the daily task of finding unconditional love.

I've learned over the weeks & months that I can only find it in the moments. 

I send unconditional love today to my home state of Ohio.

From the crossroads of a small town off of Highway 42, where

the heaviness of grief lingers with every blink and to eastern Ohio where lives are being uprooted as unknown chemicals fill the sky, water  and ground.

I hope peace covers these communities.

The peace is there but only in the moments.

I shared this song a few blogs ago and it's a good day to share it again.

There is A Peace

As days turn into weeks & weeks turn into months,

the moments are becoming more & more precious.

What is the  meaning of a "moment"?

*A brief, indefinite interval of time.

*A specific point in time, especially the present time.

*A point in time that is gratifying or noteworthy.

Some moments in music that are noteworthy coming up this week..

It is the time in winter where the weather determines whether or not you go outside.

Whether it’s a cross country ski with my daughter, Sydney, and Ivy too 🐕 or a wind blown walk along the rivers edge, the cold weather does make you tougher. 

Learning Music Scales  also makes me tougher. 🎶 

The winter months bring with it more time for indoor music.

Join Aubrea & I of The Whiskey Sweets as we scale it up this January at Open Mic at the Lariat on

Happy New Year!


The season between autumn & spring has settled into the high country. 

The wind blown, snow covered peaks of 14,000 ft. mountains rise above

the valley showing off their sovereignty that often leaves me in awe!

Mother Earth, Father Sky!

I am completely surrendered to this Divinity.

A new year once again shows how fast "time" goes.

However, I find time is now an illusion created to keep humans 


This is the "time" to rise up! 

Make the most of each moment and watch the universe WOW your soul.

The Best is yet to Come!

There is a peace that the holiday season brings out in

most parts of humanity.

Possibly it is a glimmer of hope that there is a goodness yet

in this world that has not been stolen from our hearts.

I do have hope! 

Sometimes it is a small flicker and other times it is a giant light.

I do believe we all have a choice.

The battle between good and evil is real!

And we all have to choose a side!

Good wins!!

There is a Peace

"What are you thankful for"?

As the calendar date quickly glides across the month of

November, the holiday season draws a little closer everyday.

As a young child in 3rd grade, we were told the story of 

Pilgrims sharing their first meal with the Native Americans.

We learned to churn butter and prepared our own meal with 

the help of the teacher, Miss Thomas.

That's is a memory I am thankful for today!

It is a memory that makes me crave truth!

The truth, when I find it,

is something I am thankful for!



This past October 2, I had the incredible honor

of hosting my 3rd music jam along side of my friends and music family from Coletrain Music Academy. Coleman & Robin!

We went from a  barn yard to a ballroom in 3 years and it was a gift to be apart of this event.

Through your support, we were able to raise over $6,000 to put towards improvements to this amazing Academy.

A special thank you to the Selby family & the Surf Hotel for donating the incredible Ivy Ballroom for this event.

Enjoy this amazing moment with the Fruition Trio & my friend and music teacher, Coleman Smith.

November 2, 2022

As my fingertips gently sit on the keyboard of my

computer, there are times when I lack the words to write 

on this blog.

I am learning that there will always be seasons of "change".

The definition & meaning of CHANGE:

a: to make different in some particular : ALTER

b: to make radically different : TRANSFORM

c: to give a different position, course, or direction to

I crave seasons and I crave change.

It reminds me of  a day in music class when my teacher said,

"do you want to strive for mediocre or strive for excellence"?

When seasons of change bang on the door of our 

comfort level, I believe the universe is gently guiding us.

Follow your intuition! 

Follow your gut!

Follow your heart!

Change can be loose coins in our pockets, or change can

be striving for better things!

I know one thing for sure:

The Best Is Yet to Come!

Happy November!

October 1, 2022

12 miles west of Clear Creek Reservoir in the Arkansas River Valley,

There are two ghost towns that you pass on a 

rutted  out dirt road saturated in the middle

 of Aspen groves:

Vicksburg and Winfield.

A 2 mile, 4x4 road takes you to a few trailheads that part ways and the trail I take heads west to Lake Ann.

A 8.7 mile round trip hike takes you to the 

stunning views of the Three Apostles and the beautiful teal waters of Lake Ann.

(Photos attached)

It is in these moments where the tree line, 

the towering mountain peaks and the sky join in 

perfect harmony..

“ Harmony- an orderly or pleasing combination of elements in a whole.”

This weekend there will be plenty of harmonies in 

The Meadows outside of Buena Vista.

Stop by the Coletrain Music Academy’s 

Kids  Music Camp Tent and say hello and join us for alittle tune and pick up an instrument and learn with us.

It will be a weekend to harmonize at the

Renewel Festival with Billy Strings.

September 7, 2022

One thing I have learned is 

that music will play anywhere.

Music plays in the car, or on a street corner.

Music plays in a small local bar, 

or an outside venue and in giant stadiums. 

Music  plays in a small church or a big cathedral.

Music plays in the wilderness, along a creek or river.

It sings thru the trees and whistles with the wind.

It plays in my town, your city and all the in-betweens.

This past Labor Day weekend the music did play!

It played in a giant field in Villa Grove, Colorado.

I had the amazing honor to participate in this years

Seven Peaks Music Festival in Villa Grove

as the Music Director for 

Coletrain Music Academy’s Kids Camp.

(Photos attached)

Learning from masters in the industry is truly an honor

that I will forever be grateful for.

Thank you Dierks Bentley,  Coletrain Music Academy

and  Rapidgrass for crushing it at

1,2,3,4,5,6,7 Peaks Villa Grove! 

The music will play!


The Whiskey Sweets will play again 

At the Lariat's Open Mic on September 21. TBD

After an amazing weekend of music I took some time 

to remember the moments.  

Listening to the rhythm and healing sounds of nature's

own music is a good way to start a new season!

Happy September!

August 11, 2022

Growing up in the farm lands of central Ohio,

August was always considered the 

"dog days of summer"

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac,

the dog days last for 40 days 

and end on August 11. 

A fun book I've been reading this summer is called;

Running With Sherman

by: Christopher McDougall

It's about a Rescued Donkey from the Amish country

of Pennsylvania , that ran in the Burro races in the 

Colorado Rocky Mountains. 

This weekend is the triple crown of the 

3 week historic, burro races.

Gold Rush Days

August 4, 2022 


August sails into summer quietly but brings

with it the reminder that autumn is not far behind.

The continuing monsoon season in the high country,

brings with it a vibrancy of color that is healing to the eyes and to the soul.  

A break from the noise and the busy of summer

is also healing to the soul.

To the west of Crested Butte, 

a dirt road can take you above the noise.

A favorite lake  and a day to hike my favorite ridge, 

Scarp Ridge

draped  me in just what I needed.

Mountains, waterfalls and lots of wild flowers.

Enjoy the moments!

July 22, 2022

As I drove 30 miles north on Thursday morning to a 

Favorite trailhead, this question kept 

coming over me.

“Where do the wild flowers grow?”

I see them along the highway, 

I see them in peoples yards;

As I climb a mountain dirt road,

As I cross the stream along a narrow path,

There they are!

As I pass tree tops and rise above the valley.

As I pass a giant boulder and walk along cathedral cliffs that tower against a perfect blue sky.

That’s where the answer lies.

That’s where the wild flowers grow.

I am learning that life begins and ends at tree line.

The place of transition.

The place of change.

The place you forget who you thought you were and become who your suppose to be.

(Photos attached)

Happy Birthday to my daughter, Sydney.

You make the fish smile 😊 🐠 and the world a better place!

Because Nature wins!

Summer in the Colorado Rockies happens very quickly.

In a few short weeks, the magical scenery changes in a

blink of an eye.

Savoring the smells of a mountain breeze or 

a field of fresh wild flowers, sage, and pine makes any moment

a bit brighter. 

Another thing that makes a moment brighter;

Live music.

Join The Lawn @ The Surf this Wednesday for 

some fine mountain music.

July may be one of the most colorful months in Colorado.

Seasonal Monsoon rains in the valley are helping prep for a stunning wildflower season. 

 It truly is magical!

As I find moments of what would be considered a

 "normal day", I reflect on the things that keep me moving forward. 

One of those things is music! 

Congratulations to my song writing instructor,

 David Lawrence and music teacher, Coleman Smith 

of Coletrain Music Academy on the debut of

As a young girl I watched my mother Mary create her dream of becoming a 


She became an RN and worked in the ICU  for 28 years of a small county hospital.

Mary continued in her career until 2013 as a Hospice Nurse and helped set up and be a founding member of the Loving Care Hospice out of London, Ohio. Today, Loving Care is called Ohio Hospice and reaches across central Ohio.

In the last week, with the help of Hospice, my daughter, Sydney and I, 

along with family and friends were able to provide hospice care in my parents home for this amazing woman.

On Thursday, June 23 @ 10:03am, Mary went on into her eternal glory.

Here is a short story of Mary

Mary Louise Miller

I am reminded at all times that life comes down to the seconds and the moments.

Thank you for taking a moment to read my blog.

June 13, 2022

As the month of June blazes by, I am grateful for the moments to reflect, recharge and keep moving forward.


June of 2022 brings along with it gas prices that

make my stomach turn.

In 2 years time, small businesses were considered non-essential and  inflation and taxes are soaring. 

What was $1.97 for gas quickly turned to $4.99.

What happens when $4.99 seems cheap for gas?

I will always ask questions and 

I will always seek truth.


A late spring, over night get-a-way with my daughter,

Sydney (and Ivy roo),

made for incredible memories, some good laughs and some deep thoughts.

We figure that eventually we will figure it out.

But one thing is for sure, Nature wins!

Here’s to a summer of truth!

The Best is Yet to Come!

June 1, 2022

As a kid growing up in rural,

 central Ohio,

I would head out the front door of 

an old White House, 

shuffle along a jagged sidewalk ,

 cross a small,  tar graveled

 road and walk thru the front doors of the  childhood church I grew up in.

Back then, 

the doors were always unlocked in this small brick church.

I would reach up to open the fuse box

and hit the one fuse that fired up the  one microphone at the pulpit.

Singing into a microphone as loud as I could as a young kid was always  

healing and so much fun.

Music is healing! 🎶 


I believe this is the summer for healing!!


Just recently my music instructor said to me,

“Go and Sing  the “F?}[\K” out of that song!!

So with a microphone in hand I did just what my teacher said,

I sang the F?{]|K out of our song!

Just like that young girl singing at the pulpit,

Music is so healing and so much fun!

Thank you to my friends,


for sharing your amazing gifts with the

Arkansas Valley this past weekend.

It is an honor to hold a microphone next to you. 🎤  

It’s a summer of mountain music!!

Happy Memorial Weekend!

Here’s a little history:

Memorial Day, originally called 

“Decoration Day”,

 began after the Civil War in 1868 to honor the fallen men and woman 

in the US military and to decorate their graves.

In 1971, it became a federal holiday.

Thank you to all our Military Branches for protecting our “Freedom”. 

As the skies in the valley have cleared 

and the snow has melted away, 

 summer has officially arrived. 

Join the Surf Hotel for a weekend of live music.

Also, Bluegrass on the Arkansas is this weekend in Salida.

 I am quit drawn to the Arkansas River 

and the paths that lead me there.

I often like building a “cairn” to remind me of which way I should go, or I anxiously look for them when needing guidance on a path.


A man-made pile (stack) raised for a purpose,

Usually as a marker;

To mark a summit or a trail marker.

As the Arkansas River Valley watches 

over 2 feet of snow melting, it feels like a cleansing.

Everything looks and feels brighter.

Almost like the path ahead of me has a purpose and if I follow the “cairns” of life, I will safely reach my destination. 

The best is yet to come!



I have no words! 

In the last 8 days, I have often said,

"I have no words"

I have heard, seen & felt the absolute lows of sorrow & grief


I have heard, seen & felt the absolute highs of gratitude & light.

If I have a purpose in this life, I now know it can only be

for the greater good.

I have shared seconds & moments in the last week

that will forever keep me moving forward.

Thank you to my music instructor & friends;

Coleman, Charlie, Mark and Matthew for making 

the moments of this day magical. I will forever be

thankful for your gifts, time and talent.


Coletrain Music Academy

As we round into the summer season-

as a parent of a First Responder;

Please keep First Responders,

Search & Rescue,

 State, County & local Police Officers,

Fire Fighters & Medics 

 in your hearts. ❤️

Thank you for who you are and what you do!


Every Step!

Every Second!

It's all in the seconds!

The best is yet  to come!!



MAY Days!!

I was recently reminded that life comes 

down to the seconds.

A couple definitions for “seconds”:

* A unit in time equal to one sixtieth of a minute.

* A brief interval of time; A Moment.

I even learned that “Seconds” are also an adjective 


* Having a lower pitch.

*Singing or playing a part having a lower range.

I will be forever in awe of the seconds 

inside the moments.

I spent my Mothers Day weekend saturated in 

family, music, nature and wind.

I had the honor to listen to my amazing daughter Sydney’s adventures in Nepal, and we had some time to sit by the Arkansas River and reflect about the seconds we are given.

Dhanyavaad, is THANK YOU in the Nepali language.

I recently told my

music instructor,  that I have no English word in my vocabulary for a word larger than "thank you". 

Dhanyavaad to Coletrain Music Academy and everything you do 

and for who you are to this community. SO GRATEFUL!!

I have to sit in the seconds and remember every moment is a gift and I have the choice to use it for the greater good.

That is my only option:

Enjoy the seconds and make it for the greater good!

Happy Earth Day!

It is said that the first Earth day was celebrated

April 22, 1970.

To help celebrate clean air, land & water.

I would like to make it earth day everyday! 

How can we help? 

Celebrate Earth Month

22 years ago I had the incredible  opportunity 

to attend my first John Paul Mitchell Systems 

National Educator training program.

Within these years I have been given the gift 

to study, train , learn & work along side 

many incredible Artists in the industry.

In the past few weeks my studying skills 

have been stretched.

I have learned that I can settle for mediocre 

Or I can keep growing and strive for excellence.

It’s a daily choice I have been given.

I recently told my music instructor, 

Coleman and his wife Robin that the gift I’ve been given as a student at Coletrain Music Academy;

Is that not only does my teacher believe in me,

but my teacher helps me  believe in myself.

“When the student is ready,

The teacher arrives.”

That is GOOD stuff!

More good stuff!

Congrats to my instructor & friends

Coleman, Alex, Charlie & Mark with  Rapidgrass

As I write  this morning, a snow squall is coming thru

the  section of the Arkansas River Valley that I live.

Dark grey skies with high winds and blowing snow.

The storms in life can move in quick.

As a student of music  (& life), 

I realize that things can move quick.

A week ago, I called a metronome a metrodome.

As I learn to measure time in music,

I can often be found counting.. 1,2,3,4,2,2,3,4,3,2,3,4,,,




~A device used to mark time by means of regularly recurring ticks or flashes at adjustable intervals.

~A mechanical contrivance for marking time, especially as an aid in musical study or performance.

Enjoy the moments in time! 

Even if you feel like your just counting!!

Every count counts~~~

The Best is yet to come! 


The last weekend of March 2022 was a reminder that spring is here. 

From sunshine to snow- all in a day;

there can be a few weather options to embrace.

Sharing  time with my family  along the 

Arkansas River can make any spring day complete.

Watching some early season kayakers,

Long horn sheep, fly fishing and just being still along the waters edge.

That’s a good start to spring. (Photos in gallery)

The best is yet to come!


Recently I took a morning stroll along the Arkansas River.

As I sat by the river against a majestic Ponderosa Pine tree, I was listening to a podcast of Hopi Elders

sharing their stories and prophecy.

The Hopi are considered  the oldest of the native people and are also descended from the Anasazi. 

(more about  the Anasazi in the

October blog)

During this moment, I was gifted the amazing opportunity to see a bald eagle.

It is a rare opportunity, but one that when given sends shivers thru every cell.

(photo in gallery)

I call it Eagle Medicine:


-connection to Sprit

-messenger from Spirit

-higher perspective of a situation

-strength and courage 


Nature wins!

The start of this week brings with 

it more light. 

I do love springing forward while 

saturating  myself with inspiring and creative folks.

This past weekend was filled with 

a lot of sunshine & 

a lot of mountain music.

Being a full time student of music is an amazing gift that I have been given at this time &  I require a lot of band width to keep learning.

A few days ago I couldn’t spell cello.

Nor did I know exactly what instrument it was.

Cello: A bass, bowed stringed instrument of the violin family. It’s 4 strings are usually tuned in perfect fifths.

This week I have the honor to sing, play & record with the amazing 

 Cellist, Thea Brown from 

Fort Worth,TX.

(Photo bottom left in gallery)

Looking forward to a season of beautiful mountain music.

Stay tune for more details in the blog for summer music.

When the world all around feels a bit unstable,

I like some good humor.

Sometimes life is funny!

Sometimes it isn’t!

I choose good.

The first few days of March brings with it

A lot of blue skies & sunshine, 

a lot more snow &

the amazing sound of more birds chirping in the morning sunrise.

It also brings uncertainty and the feeling of;

“What is really going on in this world”?

My new favorite word is:

Cognitive dissonance.

One meaning is;

‘A state of discomfort felt when two or more modes of thought contradict each other;

The clashing cognitions may include ideas & beliefs & can cause unease & tension.’

Some of the words that cause my 

cognitive dissonance are:



* Tom Hanks

*Red pill


*human trafficking 



*dumbs (deep underground military bases)


2 years ago this month, My small business,

that was considered non- essential 

 closed its doors to help “flatten the curve”,

for a virus that was suppose to last 2 weeks.

Here I am 2 years later with an understanding of how different the world is today but how 

the same it still is.

I am grateful for this journey and what it has taught me.

I know now it is OK to ask why?

I know it’s OK to seek truth!

I know it’s OK!

It has to be OK.

Good will always win.

Today is 2’s day!

On this Twosday, 

I embrace the present moment of a

powder packed snow storm coming into the valley and sharpen the edge of my skis in preparation.

I also am in absolute awe that

Lemm1030 Studio is celebrating its 7th anniversary this week 

in beautiful 

Buena Vista, Colorado.

I am so grateful for the  amazing support from studio guests, the surrounding community and 

the John Paul Mitchell Systems family that continues to educate and inspire the industry.

A little astronomy lesson;

On 2/22/22 the planet Pluto will complete a full revolution for the first time since July 4, 1776,

Signaling the rebirth of Nations and returning power to the people.

Take back your power & 

remember who you are on this 

2’s day.

Good wins!

I often question why bad things happen to good people.

Since I seek answers I did some research and I found one answer that makes sense.

‘Good people suffer because they are good- as they say they must help people suffering. By doing this they absorb the pain themselves. 

Too much empathy becomes a problem and leads to 


Reading and re-reading this quote helps, but I sure was reminded 

during a recent cross country drive in 22 hours that we never know what goes on behind closed doors. Nor can I ever question the journey people are on and that I will never understand unless I am walking in those shoes.

With that reminder,

I sit in the moments where I find 

the peace, love and happiness and I choose to spread that to the tops of these amazing peaks that surround this valley and beyond.

It ripples down the 

Arkansas River Valley and I hope we will all remember that the 

best is yet to come. 

Good wins!!

Tree line is defined as a division above which trees should tend not to grow on the mountain;

The edge of habitat at which trees are capable of growing.

I am drawn to the tree line.

The edge at which I find many 

divine places of growth.

Every season brings a new opportunity to explore the tree line.

From high alpine mountain lakes & wild flowers of summer to the clear blue bird days of winter .

(photos bottom left)

Trees are free to hold the line.

To be free is to be relieved of what  restrains, confines, restricts and binds.

And We Know

As a child, I remember driving with my dad, Andy,

in a Peterbilt semi while he worked for a local fertilizer and trucking company outside of Plain City, Ohio.

I would ride shotgun or hang out in the sleeping cab or pretend I was talking CB talk on the CB radio.

I recall BJ & the Bear, Smokey & the Bandit and other mother trucker movies that showed the American spirit.

When’s the last time we’ve seen a convoy?

Check out what’s happening in Canada and do some research as censorship is real.

January brings some colder, windier days and 

it seems ol’man winter is taking its time this winter season.

Yet, I came to Colorado for the winters, but I stayed for the summers.

Whether it’s sharing a blue bird cross country ski with my daughter, Sydney (and Ivy too), 😁

Or standing at the top of the Continental Divide,

getting ready to drop into some 

(unexpected) moguls.

Seasons bring with them change.

I seek change as much as I seek truth.

What is true?

Time will tell,until then

I am very intrigued by history. 

On my quest to keep learning, I have traveled several times this year to study the Anasazi ( Navajo Native Indian meaning, “the ancient ones”).

At Mesa Verde, I placed my fingers  in the fingerprints of the ancient ones from over 1,000 + years ago.

Or climbing to the top of Chimney Rock to see the vast lands that the Anasazi walked.

This week, I crawled thru door ways and windows of the sacred walls of

Chaco Canyon’s, Pueblo Bonito . (850a.d-1150a.d )

It is life changing to be apart of moments as these and to try and comprehend how very short, yet magical our time here is.

Goes along with the words to a new song my friend & music instructor

Coleman and I  have been working on in class.

the storm upon us

An early autumn hike with my daughter, Sydney 

this past Tuesday led us up 

to Scarp Ridge west of Crested Butte.

 (photos to bottom left)

Scarp Ridge

The hike started in sunshine and soon followed with light snow.

At the ridge, we took in the tremendous views and were quickly humbled by the storm that came upon us.

Thunder, lightening and heavy, wet snow. Also known as graupel. 

All the prep we take for hiking, quickly unraveled as we made our way quickly and swiftly to safety.

Our story is just a story now, but we all have a story to tell about the storms that come upon us.

I experienced many lessons and gifts that day.

I will never take Mother Earth for granted 

Or  the incredible power and strength we are each given

If we choose to believe and remember we are here for a purpose. 

Have a great October.

The photo of my daughter Sydney & I, ( and ivy too) 

was taken on Labor Day, 2021. (below left)

It is in an area we like to call, “holy ground”.

It's just north of town along the Arkansas River.

The remnants of history go back to the gold miners, 

the historic railroad line(s), the Native American Ute tribes & beyond.

There is so much history!

Does history repeat itself?

There should be so many questions!

I have many and I seek truth!

Have a great week & remember, " the best is yet to come"!

God wins!

​Due to censorship, 

I have taken down my social media platforms. 

So, a blog it is!


As many stylists in the industry take 

CE hours for our state issued Board License, I often was curious as to why in Ohio we had to take  CE hours for Human Trafficking Awareness.  On July 30, 2021, it was worldwide National Human Trafficking Awareness day.  As I promoted this on Instagram, my 2 accounts were disabled. I enco​urage everyone to do your own research. If you are unaware of what is happening in our country and on  our borders, you may want to take a peak. 

Censorship is real!

If it happened to me, who else is being censored?

It's a deep rabbit hole!
