THINKING OUT LOUD…..
I’m Back in Chicago! I haven’t been this much on the road in a couple years. It feels good…….this is asked for right? Being busy as a female musician can have its challenges and sacrifices. Most folks I run into who don’t live the artists lifestyle are very surprised when I tell them my age and that I don’t have kids. They always ask, “what r U waiting for?” For me, it comes down to a matter of support….and love of course goes without saying. Support being money for child care services or maybe family helping out… Female entertainers who have a budget R able to take their kids on the road. Some are able to leave the kids with their parents (grandma & grandpa). Males seems to have it a little easier. Some have some other means to help. But, it would be hard for me. I remember reading that A famous female vocalist and her daughter didn’t get along because the daughter was upset that her mom was gone all the time. I would hate that. My mom is no longer with me and my dad isn’t the kid watching type of grandfather. I’m not the type to leave my kids with strangers. There are female musicians with children but I don’t know many who have reached the height of success that I’m reaching for. I don’t know if ill ever get there with or with out kids. But, I have to keep reaching regardless because I absolutely love what I do……either way, I definitely won’t have any unless I find that guy :) No need to reply or comment, I’m just thinking out loud.
