Hey there! Thanks for visiting Roe Knows Best, curated by Yours Truly.

I’m a songwriter, music lover, self-ascribed Star Trek Punk, enthused intellectual, and curious soul. For the past six years, RKB has served as a place to put down my words, thoughts, and music from time to time. Right now, it seems to be serving as primary hub to house my myriad of writing exercises (cultivating accountability), as I continue to hone my lyric writing and storytelling abilities. I hope you enjoy whatever you stumble upon here.

Be sure say hello, drop me a line either in the comments or in the Contact section.

Thanks for reading.

  1. 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.

    1. 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!
