Hey there! Thanks for visiting Roe Knows Best, curated by yours truly.

I’m a songwriter, budding intellectual, curious soul, and lifelong NJ native. For about over two years, RKB has served as a place to put down my words, thoughts, and music.

I usually tend to write about my own personal sentiments and life experiences, but also enjoy discussing dreams, music, and books. I love feedback and discussion (so don’t be shy!).

I am currently pursuing a second B.A. in TV Production at Montclair State University and as a mid twenty-something, I’m proudly embarking on a new journey in becoming an independent individual and young professional by finding my place in the world. I’m always aiming to make sense of myself and the world around me to find somewhere I truly belong. Peace and love, y’all!

    I knew you as a baby, Rosanna. I saw you every once in a while but never enough. I think the last time was in 2001 at my daughter, Michele’s, 16th birthday party. You’re not that much younger than my son, Thomas.

    Relatively recently, I’ve been listening to your words…your sound…your music…and your growth over the years. I enjoyed it all.

    Right now, your at an I’m-between stage of life. It’s a pause. A reset. You’ve accomplished a lot and now it’s time just to exhale until the next step appears…baby or other-wise. What a great time for you to consider all that you can visualize for yourself and what it will take for you to ultimately get there.

    It took me a long time to be who I today; my basic values being all that remains unchanged, I believe. Personally…professionally…spiritually…emotionally…I am I recognizable from who I was when your age. It’s been an interesting ride so far and there are more lessons to come.

    Remain true to your core passion for it will be what you always return to even when life detours you on a short journey for some needed lesson. Always pay attention to the red flags because your Soul knows best. Follow the lead you know to be true fully realizing the loving arms that helped you become who you are today will always be there, if only for a touch of reassurance.

    I wish you joy…the warmth of the sun on your face…a freedom of spirit in your song…continued growth each and every day…and most of all, to continue to be surrounded in love.

    – JoAnn

      I hate auto-correct.

      Just for the record.

      Thank you so much for your kind words and sincerity!! And believe it or not I DO remember that birthday party During my in-between phase/rebirth period, I have been doing my absolutely best at reading, writing, listening, discovering, etc. I am a strong believer in fate and how Schopenhauer says when we look back on our life it will appear as though it were written by a novelist! (http://www.edgeofgrace.net/2010/12/09/joseph-campbell-schopenhauer-on-fate/). Chance occurrences later make sense and weave together a bigger picture that is beyond our comprehension at present, but makes perfect sense later on. Thank you for encouragement!
