DEDICATION:

It's a long story but I would not be flying now if wasnt for the hope In Randy Rhoads short time in the limelight.  He gave me at 15 years young a validation in myself and in classical music. A conformation that those interests can't be denied.Unfortunaely I wasn't able to see him perform . It was a bad time in my upbringing to ask questions , such as going to a concert to see your inspiration play live .expecialy when your parents were divorcing. I alreay knew the answer , so I didnt ask. I never imagined only less than 1000 days later he would be gone in this world,  but his memory and  message through guitar, still is a force I that has made me  hopeful. I've been motivated like always to pick up my guitar . And ,again now
I 'm excitied to learn from where I left off. Soloing, playing lead . What a challenge at 48 years old. Im better than I thought I would be.  . I have learned more about my guitar hero from the internet and by the online media in which through those that knew him well, such as Ron Sobol and groups of fans in social media have shared a common ideal of what he means to each one of us. I always wanted to express my feelings of gratitude twords Delores Rhoads as I wished I had that kind of support growing up, being in special education each year not knowing why I struggled alot in school although I excelled always in the science and art subjects. They termed me Twice Exceptional, but what good did that do when I couldnt cope with an ever increasing probability of never graduating. Dee was like the connection of my inner child wanting to just meet her and say thanks and an older woman now in my late forties just wanting to ask her questions on how she did it raising three children , and How much I think she is an inspiration herself. So to the one that cared so much for her baby and helped him and made a hero , a legend I dedicate this as an extention of Randy to heras well. I would love to meet you Delores .
 
That, along with my Aunts last dying wish in July 2014 pushing me with questioning "there must be a way ", she would outcry; for  me to get my art out there, with her words " JUST DO IT ! "keeps me going .Her passing and a rebirth of my reintroduction of Randy through the internet came a full circle of greif and hope , joyful tears ,and a meaning for me to act on a possible lifelong dream through arts and finding a career . Im too old to be a rock star but my art could do some things if I stuck my neck out , so I did. With the help of a supportive mother in Dee and two great souls that are asleep now in death. One young and one old , one 25 and one 89 carried the message of hope ,even if they didnt  realized it . They made a huge impact on my goals in a most encouraging way.
So I carry them with me, together, my Aunt Carmella and Randy Rhoads and with me in hopes to create more art .Perhaps in time l will see what the outcome may be as I do an artist and as the always learning student , Born with this gift making it fly. One day sharing the memory and telling them both where they have  helped me land and how they both made me fly.
