Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

It’s Thursday. That means I’m in work-mode. Getting ready for work, for me, is more like the way that Jennifer Lopez might prepare versus how Jane Doe blue collar might do so. I dress like I’m going to the Saturday dance and when I’m there, I am there to put on a show (especially on slow nights…which are, thankfully, rare).

Because I am a small town girl who never had the connections to make it to the big time and because I became a mother at a young age, singing karaoke and putting on a show and encouraging others to join me, is the next best thing to the superstardom that I always dreamed of, as a kid. I would rather lose all my limbs and lose my sight and so long as I could sing, I would still find joy in my life.

Last night, I sat down and watched the movie, “El Cantante”. I am a sucker for biographical movies, particularly movies based on the lives of musicians. “El Cantante” is a movie based on the life of one of the Godfather’s of “Salsa” music, Hector Lavoe (aka El Cantante/The Singer). This man had the greatest luck, the greatest love, and he was loved by many for his soulful voice, but he still felt lonely. IV drug use, and later AIDS, took his life, too soon (even after he jumped from a 9th floor balcony AND survived).

Sometimes, I feel glad that I “never made it big”. Who knows how tragic my own story might have been if I had made it to the big time. My life now is pretty good, despite being broke as a joke. And, I get to sing and entertain people for a living. Not many people actually get to walk around in their life and say that they are actually living a dream (or that they found a way to pursue it, at all). I will never be a superstar, but, hey, I’ll settle for being a local celebrity (people don’t ask for my autograph, but strangers approach me all the time and tell me how much they enjoy my show…creepy, sure. Inspiring, certainly)!

I searched all over youtube to find the video that I wanted to tag this post with and I found this: El Dia De Mi Suerte “Hector Lavoe” (The Day of My Luck) (It’s a song about a guy who has bad luck and can’t seem to catch a break…but he’s hopeful)

Peace.
