Reece-   Women in business.  Always a friendly fight. We built what became of Ample Records; the househeld name and phenomenon.  The boys emerged with Ample Sound, but we don't change the records and so, I'm the owner in management, Radiance is the owner of the brand, and Kaylin walked away the owner of all her publishing rights and with the most fame.  It's a card I rarely play, but he's here and it may come up.  I recently got wind of Death to Forty and the legacy continues.  I'm slouched in my seat when they come through the door one after each other like Dunbars do.  I know it's just the way the clock struck them, and that there's no other reason she's here but to be sure none of our plans for Ample Sound conflicts with Ample Records'.  I'm stunned by her resolve, but we…

Monica Shepherd-  What is it with guys and art galleries this millennia: a general period of righteousness and happiness?  It's the new wave of hoppers.  I used to stand at the corner of the gallery and watch loads of women come through looking for their life's subject in the canvases on the walls.  Now it's unknown males just staring with whatever the search hidden deep within.  I haven't been able to pin point the caravan in their hearts or the subjects lingering in their messenger bags.  I'm captured by his gaze.  Standing from behind it's still a deep gaze.  I'm studying his selections; where his feet are led to stop, and he appears to have a solid question.  I mean.. the three artists, the stories, and the gifts.  I study them all as they come and go.  I know the types they draw, and I know he's coming my way.  It was the recognition he attempted to disregard upon entry, and …

Radiance-  I'm a bit of a sandal.  Funny I'm not into beaches though.  He is, and he was however.  I've always taken a liking to sitting poolside instead.  I think it's an image I've seen enough to want to recreate and it gets rid of all the sand.  Sand!  That's it!  Sand and Stars.  It's what I've been waiting for.. for the name of the album to fall out of the clutter in my mind.  First perhaps the name and then the songs; all for a cute and organized closet in the mind.  That's always the way I hope it to be, but four months, four sightings, and one hell of an interruption later.. It's all chaos.  
I tried to size up his voice on the line, but he's to professional to call it.  I even tried to wiggle my way out of sand and surf after a night like last night, but I don't even think it registered to him.  Older men.  They're not so pushy, but maybe just a little …

Radiance- Off years are fun; breakfast, brunch, dinner, a dog park with a friend for a walk, an over-zealous meeting with no real mind to get going.  I've got sticky notes for days, stacked atop each other.. with horizontal sidelines and vertical bylines.  It all just sits there until there comes a fire under your pants.  I received a wedding dress eight years ago from him and it naturally ruined my tour.  Finding that landing for the eyes, keeping the mind in one lane, pretending that maybe that night is the night that he comes to the edge of the stage and say "I told you so".  Whether the fans felt the detachment or not, is unknown to me.  I might have heard a rumor or two but I followed the real critics, and what felt like embarrassment to me was labeled endearing and empathetic.  Way to throw off the truth.He's been with me in five different countries and has surprised me with many Rose cal…

Kaylin- I write for almost everyone in the business, but not her.  Mountains do reach high and all valleys don't need to run so low.  We've been friends and we've been friendly.  I don't sing and I've never seen him again.  Kayla is Kayla, and I'm Kaylin.  She gambles at times and I never gamble.  He's near and He's nearer.  I know now and she knows too.  It's hard to be a threat when you don't see the threat.  She begged me once to step up into what she said she could see was a rich, delicate voice hiding in the shadows of a list of hit songs, but it's just never felt like a pair of shoes I needed to walk in.  I'm back in the country and my pick up is off the runway in a armored truck.  I go mainly unseen in and out of the country these days.  Usually it's a short ride not full of clutter or money bags. Except this one time there was a huge dress bag hanging b…
