…her hand slowly reached out and she turned the door knob..not sure of what she would find or if anyone would be there.  It was so long since she had been to this place.  She missed her friends but life as a way sometimes of just putting you into isolation.  You focus on what you need to do to survive and move on. No time time for chit chat or carrying on.

The room was dark and dusty…it was quiet….where were her finds..so was sure they must still be here somewhere. She hopped they would still be here. She thought of them often, Paula, Pink, Jenny, Paula Renee.  She walked cautiously around hoping to find her friends still there.

Hello everyone life does have a way of taking over sometimes. I have missed all of my wordpress family and I certainly hope you are all still out there. I have been in school at the local college studying yoga, music, and taking photoshop courses.

I have also spent the past year learning to do Reiki. I will be doing a workshop and I will do a separate post about that.

I have also been working on my book, The Disillusionist,. It is quite a different beast to write a book than to do a blog. To all those writers out there that have managed to do both I applaud you. It is quite a daunting task.

Missy has had 2 cancer surgeries, first one they removed 4 lumps ( 3 cancerous 1 fatty) second surgery they removed 3.

I said no to chemo and have her on all kinds of herbal and homeopathic products. She seems to be doing okay–so far have not seen any other lumps on her.

I finally have found some good young people to work as performers–fingers crossed they all work out.

School starts again at the end of august. I will be taking a graphic design class, photography, hata yoga, and commercial music theory.

I am working towards what I want in life vs trying to walk away from something I don’t want. It’s a more positive spin on things.

That’s it for now–hopefully will have more revelant posts soon.

Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is the dream of Renee-King Sonnen.

Renee is a singer and songwriter from the Houston/Brazoria County area who met her future husband, Tommy Sonnen, while singing at a nightclub.

Renee and Tommy

She went suburban living to ranch living 6 years ago when they got married. She lives on a 96 acre cattle ranch right on hwy 35, 50 miles southwest of Houston and 30 miles from Bay City/Matagord.

Her husband has been a cattle rancher for 15 years. . It’s beyond my ability to describe! My husband’s great-grandfather supplied almost all of Houston with meat in the early 1900’s – his great-grandfather had a slaughter-house.

When she married him 6 years ago, she had no idea that she would become vegan as a result of the horrors of the sale barn episodes with the calves.

Like Howard Lyman, the cattle rancher turned vegan she had an epiphany that opened…

Introducing Wunderbar Vegan soaps and the owner/creator Anka Schwartz


Anka has been an on and off again vegetarian for a long time. She has wanted to be a vegetarian since she was 12 but it was hard because her family didn’t really support it

“When I moved out I started to get into being vegetarian but then I’d get into a relationship and the person I was with wasn’t vegetarian so that made it hard and then I sadly always gave up.

As of now I’ve been vegetarian for almost 2 years. My best friend recently transitioned from being vegetarian to vegan and she has been making a lot of posts and sharing experiences that have inspired me so right now I’m still learning and hoping to gain strength to be fully vegan.

After a life time of buying and using inferior products that just didn’t do what…

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

This is a little gem of a restaurant that I found quite by accident in Palmdale. It was a long day of running errands and I saw the restaurant and I thought to myself that they must have something vegan.

I was nicely surprised. Not only do they have vegan options but I was told by Spring one of the owners that any entrée can be veganized.

They have vegan chicken, vegan beef and vegan shrimp.


I ordered fried tofu with vegetables in a brown sauce. The brown sauce normally has oyster juice in it but they made it without the oyster juice for me. Wow, a restaurant that is willing to accommodate vegans. I was impressed.

Vegan Pizza?!

Vegan Pizza sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Pizza one of those comfort foods that vegans miss quite a bit. Sure you can order pizza without cheese but is it really pizza? Who are we kidding? No, it’s not pizza unless there is cheese on it.

I discovered Cruzer Pizza with my VegOut phone app.

I couldn’t believe it. A vegan pizzeria but lo and behold it was true. Cruzer Pizza is in an out of the way location on a small side street. You kind of have to know it’s there to be able to find out. It’s a mom and pop small business except that it is run by two brothers.DSC03886

I was helped by Sam Sammy one of the owners. He told me that they had been open for four years. At first only some of…
