Yeah, so that moment when you’re sitting at your computer being idle because your mind just refuses to think up anything interesting for you to write, and you end up on a web page with a bunch of pictures of designer bags. You see a picture of a Chanel ice cube bag, and your programmed mind tries to tell you that it’s cute, but you’re just not having any of your programmed mind’s BS because you know deep down it’s just a stupid bag. And it’s really not all that cute at all, and you only want to think it’s cute because you feel like you’re supposed to think it’s cute. Because it’s a Chanel bag, and you’re supposed to act like anything with the name Chanel attached to it is the most fabulous thing ever. But you really don’t give a crap about Chanel anything. And you know it’s insane and ridiculous the way that some women carry on over what amounts to just a stupid bag. So you click away from the damn page because, what they hell are you even doing with your life?

Happy Saturday Janine and Sandra!

I am looking forward to the upcoming week because I should get everything lined up this week to release a second single from my album. And I should get started on production of the final two songs. These two are among my favorite songs that I’ve written and I can’t wait to record the vocals, get the songs completed and start on the course towards releasing my first album.

This has been an experience of great joy and great pain. Fortunately the joy and the other positives are great enough that they have overridden the pain and the other negatives so far. I can’t speak for what’s to come, but I am ready to face it, whatever it will be.

Don’t let yourself be tricked into valuing the wrong things in life. I won’t pretend like I’m not going to ever look at a designer bag again and think it’s the cutest thing in the world. I’m sure I will. I’m human; but I hope you guys will remind me that it’s just a stupid bag and things cannot put real and lasting joy into the human heart and soul.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog which I started in 2012 (including what I'm writing now). It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment on very basic topics. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. In my defense, I'm human. There is much I do not know about anything and sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to learn and grow. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing, modeling, and doing things that make me happy and keep me actively engaged in living and being . I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (with the exception of content submitted by third party contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs on everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional credentials and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by experts on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person. I am a work in progress and committed to striving to live consciously in a spirit of light and love. It does not mean I will not sometimes act and write in contradiction of that goal.
