DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.
For a decade and a half, Norstrom experienced a mass of tainted relationships . . . becoming incarcerated by the chains of toxicity. In the artistic world, her literary creations demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered, from darkness to survival.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of the drama life brings. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle!”
OMG, watching TV One (Unsung Marathon) really took me back. It took me to ‘em days while on the scene with those wonderful icons and vocalists “The Emotions.”
Talk about #trailblazers! Glad to know they are still at it. They’re coming back . . . with nieces and nephews. Truly, they’re a great musical family.
Back then wasn’t anything #toxic about those days. If only we could turn back the hands of times . . .
Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
Backstage when we hung out with the Emotions (Jeanette, Wanda, and Sheila—or was it Pamela?). I'm sure you recall this group. Their hit singles were “So I Can Love You,” “The Best of a Love Affair,” “Heart Association,” “I’ve Fallen In Love,” “Show Me How,” “I Wanna Come Back,” “What Do the Lonely Do at Christmas,” and many other great tunes. . . . .a bang-up time watching those performers. And it was obvious . . . .
