This is a runway event hosted, created, and ran by my real life sister Lisa along with the support of many people who love her as well as those who have just met her.
It is a spectacular, fun, laughter filled runway show that gets beautiful people together who have been given a positive cancer diagnosis to walk the catwalk as models and amazing inspirational role models.
These exceptional women are literally flooded with love and gifts as their friends and family show their support by attending and cheering them on. Also, the community gets involved by supporting these amazing people.
As a little sister would — I like to follow my sister either in person or in this case online. My real life sister has been up to her amazing self again by having just completed a successful runway fashion show in order to increase breast cancer awareness.
Today, I’m sharing a letter that my sister Lisa received from one of the participants.
Have you added your mascara to your bag! Don’t forget it is important.
I’m offering you my thoughts. Today. ♡ Today, when you are feeling a bit lost, and you don’t know what is right and what is wrong, remember, I’m here for you. Remember, I love you. Remember, I will take care of you today and always. God.
I can make a living doing what I love and enjoy.
for me? ♫
Good things are going to happen and #geauxpink @jbuliesblog
A couple of things on my mind
that I’d like to share today that have to do with reading, writing, creativity and comments.
I am thankful for the positive comments and encouragement I get from people who read my blog.
When I started off blogging, the idea was to share. I have written since I can remember. In fact, I remember a time in my life where I would fill my days writing.
Everyone is a Critic
When I made the decision to share my words with the world it wasn’t based on a self satisfying idea to help one person out there. It was more about an idea that I wanted to learn how to blog. I thought that instead of writing in my journal, I’d do it online.
It’s actually a bit of a risk, if you ask me, putting yourself out on the line to be judged by your peers.
I like the idea of learning by doing. It’s one thing to think about doing something and a whole other ball game to put yourself out there and actually do something.
What inspired this post was seeing the amazing things that are going on in your lives. I feel each one of you reading this is successful in your own way.
I’ve seen my friends overcome numerous obstacles to achieve their goals. I’ll give you some examples. One friend overcame the death of her parents at a young age to go and have a beautiful big family of her own.
She figured it out. Others have dreamt of becoming writers, business people, parents, teachers, artists, musicians, you name it. They haven’t given up and they are doing it — pursuing their dreams.
Doing it. Loving it.
I have a friend who is scared of making a change in her life. Her entire family is relocating to a new city with completely new people, streets, smells, schools, every little thing in her life will be new.
But she did it. She said yes to life with the insecurity that comes from the future and not knowing what it would hold. Good for her.
Another fantastic woman is traveling the world on her own. Such courage. Other friends are dealing with heartbreak, love, life, raising families and work. They are figuring it out. The more people who read my blog, of course, there always seems to be someone who doesn’t like it.
That leaves the question to me of how to deal with it. I either forgive, forget, overlook, pretend they aren’t there or accept it.
Between saying and doing is an ocean of difference.
While I was on vacation for a week and didn’t have internet access I found myself missing my online community. I have made friends with unbelievable people I wouldn’t have otherwise met. We share videos, stories, pictures of our lives, you name it. For me being so far from my family I find it a great way of knowing what they are up to. I have also met people from all over the world. I love that. Our world truly is getting smaller.
So on a spiritual path to enlightenment, I believe we are all interconnected. All of our actions effect each other. I’m working through these questions with the help of my friends and I am so thankful for them. How do you deal with the critics? Is it better just to not share? You are welcome to leave your comments. Thank you for visiting. As always
I caught up with Georgia on day six of her forty day tour that takes her and her band, Georgia English and the Juke Box Kids to North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, West Virginia and Pennsylvania to see how she is holding up.
Nashville, Tennessee: The 5 Spot
Nashville, TN: Springwater with My Politic and Daphne and the Mystery Machines
Franklin, Tennessee: Kimbro’s
Here is our interview:
Georgia English Thank you so much for sharing my album on your twitter! I really appreciate it. My mom has told me wonderful things about you! Great to meet you on and thank you for your support.
Julie Angelos Well, young lady, you are most welcome. It’s a pleasure for me to tweet and write about you because we truly like your songs. We’ve been listening to them all day.
Georgia, tell me about your name.
Georgia English My mom really loves Willie Nelson’s version of Georgia On My Mind so I think that had something to do with it. My dad was really into Greek stuff and I guess Georgia translates to Daughter of the Earth.
Then I just lucked out with my last name!
Julie When did you start singing?
Georgia I started singing like four years after I started playing guitar.
It just started feeling like the natural thing to do when you are strumming. I was really shy about it at first. The first time I sang in front of a crowd, I was around 12 and sang Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd and Sweet Home Alabama by Lynard Skynard.
I was in a rock band in middle school and we started playing around San Francisco with the help of my guitar teacher.
Julie I see you live in Nashville and you are from San Francisco. Can you tell me a little bit about that transition?
Georgia I went to school in Boston for college and met all the musicians in my band there.
We really wanted to be in a vibrant musical scene where everyone was playing all the time. I absolutely love Nashville. I think something really special is happening there now.
There is a lot of pop country and industry stuff that I am less interested in. But there is also a lot of musical integrity and respect for older styles and Roots music. Sometimes it actually feels a bit like San Francisco in the way that people interact.
Julie I absolutely loved your latest single, Chasing After You. It’s so catchy. Can you tell me what inspired you to write that song?
Georgia Ha! When someone treats you bad I think the best revenge is to just have some fun.
Julie I see you work with a couple of real talented individuals. Can you tell me about them?
Georgia I am very lucky to have an amazing band full of great people. We are actually on the road now and I am feeling very lucky and happy to be with them.
It is a blessing to have good friends and to play with great musicians. It’s pretty incredible when they are both. We all love the same music which is very important.
They are hard workers, funny, and can put up with me on these long drives!
Julie What are your next steps?
Georgia Really we just want to play as much as possible! We are currently on a Pennsatucky tour. We will be back to Nashville mid-February and will be playing mostly locally this spring. We are hoping to come out west soon to San Francisco, Mendocino and all that!
At the end of the summer we will be at the Ink N Iron Festival in Nashville.
I am super excited about that one because my celebrity crush Merle Haggard will also be playing there. It is a big honor. In the meantime we are just working hard and welcoming adventure.

One of the benefits of being a blogger is that you get to think of new blog topics as you go about your day.
I didn’t know that when I published my first blog post that I was opening a box as far as creativity goes.
There you go.
I pray a lot that God gives me the right words to convey my thoughts to the people who read my blog,
God bless you who ever you are and where ever you are.
The message gets transmitted over the internet webs through the magic of electricity, wifi, engineering, programming, computers, technology, all sliced up into little tiny bits and then it magically re appears in your inbox and on your screens on the other side of the world.
The pretty picture that someone took at in the remote parts of the world are here for us to enjoy. Of course, people are going to be criticized for walking and bumping into poles with their phones, there is just too much to consume.
At the same time, writing is fun.
My overly creative imagination listens to masters who remind me that I have the ability to do this.
One tells the story of when he and his twin were adopted by an aunt at a young age and she promised to never separate them. He tells the story of when he was looking for his first job and he asked the man if he needed some help and was sent away.
He tells the story better than I do so please let him tell his story and I shall tell mine.
My story started in a small town.
My friends and I would hang out after school. When I was younger I found enormous satisfaction in taking the full sink of dishes and making the sink shine. Maybe that is how a carpenter works when they build furniture.
Yesterday, during my reading I came across a list of the 100 bloggers to watch this year. I had read and heard about three of them. The writer had put in some time to make the list but I couldn’t get through the entire reading in one sitting because it just seemed too big and too much information to me — though it is a good reference!
I would have liked it to have been shorter. Everyone seems to be a marketer who gets synthesized into labels and as most creatives agree, they like to stay away from labels.
These interweb folk insist you need things like a funnel, a niche, a label, to be expert. Some writers are down to earth and those are the ones I adore. You can tell because they will live stream in their pajamas with their hair wet.
I think about blogging goals and selling goals.. I am a writer. I did make my course, and people who have taken it love it and appreciate it but I don’t like to sell. I am not sure if artists like being salespeople. The fun part of art is in the making, at least for me.
although I do love when someone buys one of my paintings!
It is the selling of the book or the painting or the song that the marketing folk step in and take over.
I like to think that all people are writers, singers, artists and so on.
What happens is that as a life long dedicated learner, the journalist in me takes over and remembers her lessons on price, product, place and positioning from her ad days.
I think that one of goals of any marketer are to increase reach. That is why, when I started blogging, I got caught up in the numbers of how many people I was reaching.
That is where overwhelm steps in and you will read about the effect of too much information.
Here is my second attempt to break it down for you. lol.
If you are going to talk to people, then just do that. Just talk to them. If you want to get your message out to more people then use what you have available.
If you want to get fancy, then study and model how experts do it and then try your best to do how they have written and sold without stealing.
I’ll give you an example. Once my friend saw a painting of mine and asked me to paint one for him. I took out a painting I absolutely loved and inspired me and looked at it and tried to copy a master. Of course, the painting didn’t look anything like the original because my hand is very different, every color was different, the subject was different, the brush strokes were heavier but in the end I loved the painting. I feel the original was my teacher for that painting.
I am not reinventing the wheel.
Does it feel like I am just talking about nothing, and blathering on?
The cat is making snoring sounds while I sleep. Not snoring more like erm ha chica mm sounds deep in her sleep. A new day has dawned full of hope, wonder, joy and anticipation of good things to come and for that I am truly thankful.
I appreciate it that you chose to follow my blog and read my missives. I wish you well today and every day.
I’m thinking about my friends clicking in here from all over the world. How awesome is the world wide web? Shout out to the www.
Hello World Wide Web.
Today I’m talking about twitter and how hard it is to understand as least for someone like me.
I’ve had some great great comments on my facebook page. Facebook rules by the way. Twitter, well, it’s new all new to me.
Go facebook, go!
I got comments about how to use twitter since it’s such an enigma for me. David Letterman figured it out by getting a laptop and one of his techies to turn on his twitter page so he can update it during the show.
People who read this — God bless you — know that I had to overcome a lot of fears to set up this blog. Would you like to know why?
Because writing for the public is similar to public speaking. You talk to people and they can smile, judge, laugh, agree or disagree. Sometimes they throw tomatoes right at the computer screen. I don’t suggest it.
I like to emphasize the learning by doing aspect. For example, if any of you have ever travelled, I bet that what you saw first hand is different than what you read in books.
It’s like a thousand reflections in a mirror. Until you go and experience something first hand, they are all just stories on a page.
Writing a blog is an ongoing learning experience. Please don’t think I know what I’m doing. I’m rather new to this @$#% blgng bznss.
It was the exact same feeling when I first showed my art work. Sure, some people have no problems writing and talking and showing off their work.
I do. That is exactly why I feel like this blog is growing steadily. It’s because I’m so darn afraid of failing, I’m putting every ounce of myself into making it succeed, doing the best I can do with the knowledge and awareness I have.
I am willing to take a risk and show you my work. Put down that tomato. If you want to succeed in today’s market, I believe you must be willing to talk about your work.
It is not the critic who counts — not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and bloody.
I don’t see what is wrong with blogging. Like I told my blogger friend, it’s fat free, unless, of course, you are eating a lot of food while writing.
I also love reading and studying and learning from other people. That’s why I spend a lot of time on other people’s blogs to see how they approach the same question as mine.
How do you, as a blogger or website owner, reach an audience, connect with them, share information, and grow as an individual?
Hello friends of the interwebs, how are you today?
I am writing from the table of my living room. Where are you? Are you looking at your phone, your computer, or by chance your real life?
Has the internet become part of our life completely now? Information overload! There are so many opinions floating about the space. Everyone has an opionion and this one is mine.
I started writing when I was about seven. It was when I got a crayon in my hand. I would start by writing my name. In retrospect I think I was dislexic because I would switch the j to have the bottom part go to the right and not the left. I did that actually for quite a while.
The first true letter I wrote was when my neighbor and best friend left to spend the summer with her dad. We had stamps and we had addresses so we could write each other. I think I was about nine.
I took out some stationery that I had received for a birthday present and started writing. Funny thing about that letter is that the paper was made in a way that in folded many times, like eight times into a small postal size envelope. I didn’t have enough words to fill in all of the paper so I just signed my name really big along the last five pages.
Then I remember something I wanted to write so I wrote it super small at the bottom. I think I wrote something like come home soon.
My writing improved during my year abroad. I had a friend of mine who had joined the peace corps and was sent on a mission somewhere. She and I had addresses and new lives, on two new continents, so we filled eachother in on the differences.
She lived where it was super hot so I especially loved seeing the sweat marks running down her pen strokes. Those were the days, my friend! We thought they’d never end. We’d sing and dance for ever and a day. We had a life to live, we’d fight and never lose, those were the days, oh, yes, those were the days.
In those days, we didn’t have the internet. I lived without a phone too for a year when I was 22. If we needed to make a phone call, we walked downtown, found the central post office, waiting in line and made our phone call. I would call my mom and talk for about five minutes and it would cost about $20. I would leave that phone booth both exhillerated and empty with longing to talk more.
How spoiled we are now! How lucky we are to be able to call and see our loved ones. What is even better is to see them in real life!
6 Simple Rules to live by: Be happy, be nice, be a leader, be organized, be a lifelong learner and be healthy.
I started out the new day with gusto thankful that I have been able to laugh.
It’s a nice thing.
I like to making changes slowly, one step and a time, then implementing them into my life—much like getting into a swimming pool. I’ve always liked to take my time.
For some reason, I feel full of hope, full of possibility. Life is good.
I thinking writing down goals in specific terms is important. I know that when I have a list in front of me I tend to get it done. That does not exclude the fact that I at time goes for long periods of time without lists and still life goes on, doesn’t it?
For the sake of adventure, I’m going to attempt to make sense out of my goals and write them down. Here they are in specific terms.
My goals are to
1. Obtain a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit.
2. Continue with my walks. Do yoga, stretching and bike rides on a regular basis. I love how walking clears my head. The most difficult part is just getting out the door, but I’ve noticed how simple life is on a bike. There are no keys and no cell. You just get the bike and ride.
3. Spirit. I belive in the power of prayer. I’ve also been doing some really nice healing meditaitons I found online. I love the way it calms me. I usually google Guided Healing Meditations.
4. Mind. The only way I know how to keep my mind healthy is to focus. I focus by pushing my limits. I love a clean house and that keeps me busy going room to room.
I’m also working hard on my house. I’ve made a list of things I need to accomplish around here, being a strong animated restructured house and all, and I’m just tackling it. We’ve been here now for quite some time so most of the hard work is out of the way.
Still, I enjoy keeping it in order and that takes time and dedication.
Well, as always I thank you for visiting. I pray this post finds you lovely, lucky and in love.
