Galveston Beach Camping 

Or what to do when the campsite's full

Do not freak out, I gotcha covered

We had planned this trip. Or so I thought. I had taken every little consideration accept for reserving our spot. We never really know where we will end up when chasing gigs. I found that you cannot reserve some camp spots same day over the phone with the gov'ment (not a typo) and things can fill up reallllllllllllllll fast. 

Now I am not going to steer you wrong, but this may be illegal. 

A ranger told us to go and camp on the beach overnight, just go do it. Well, I have a fear of this for when we were in Corpus Christi a few years ago camping at a site, a couple on the beach were ran over in their little tent by drunk assholes driving around on the beach. Plus I do not like sand fleas in my hair. So what is a girl to do? May I introduce the newest innovation in camping science..

No lie.  I slept on the top of the car at the beach. We strapped an air mattress to the roof and I awoke to shooting stars and a full moon on the water. Beautiful.......

If that is not your thing, I suggest calling the site first to reserve a spot. Most sites want a 24-hour notice so be sure to plan ahead. 

I really enjoyed this spot. 


We also ran into a snag when all the parking was taken. So we parked our car at a spot that had free parking and rode down to the beach on our bikes.

Just be felxible and able to plan ahead.

What I learned from Ella Fitzgerald

Criticism and Growth I feel Ella is one of the classiest, talented women in the world. Her voice is sheer perfection. It just is. Clear, eloquent and playful when desired and soulful when desired. By throwing myself into her body of work, I got to read and hear about her journey. She was a street kid. She danced and sang on the street corner. When she auditioned for Chick Webb, they said no, she was fat and she stank...she was to black and to ugly (they were looking for a pretty rival for Billie Holiday). She could hear them. She auditioned anyway with her head held high. Her diction, tone, pitch....PERFECT. 

She did not allow criticism to keep her from growing, she used it as a vehicle for growth. They dressed her, got her hair done. Let her sleep at the club and shower. She did not leave butthurt and empty-handed. She left being the FIRST LADY OF SWING (she got to pick her music from the standards coming out before anyone else including Billie Holiday). The black community made fun …


At night, when my wings are laid to rest And my love and I prepare for the little death, (The one that has hope of morning light on soft brown skin), I chatter like a child and place my head upon his chest
And there is joy and expectation, for one day We will be planted in the earth like seeds Our bodies laid side by side he and I In the land his ancestors plowed Proudly put an X on the deed (Pride of ownership far outweighing the shame of illiteracy),
My love and I will wait, we, Will wake to true light Every tear, every tear Ever shed, consoled Truth and light Maranatha
