 Who knows what day this will be published! The full moon has been fucking with the focus and I wanted to share my thoughts on these two amazing books by incredibly talented individuals, from different facets of the creative arts. It was unintentional to choose two creatives with literally the same last name except one difference, Jim's has two R's. When you notice the coincidence, it probably was not one at all because there are no coincidences in life, those are synchronicities sent from the divine universe. Always trust your gut! That is what this one of a kind, cut from a different cloth gifted intuitive femme did, these reviews were undeniable.

Although I began listening to the books on Audible simultaneously, while "work" floating or beaching, I finished Jim Carrey's first. Yet, decided to start things off with the one and only Queen of Music Mariah Carey. She has been a huge source of inspiration in my life since I was a kid! Listening and singing to her music has helped me through, not only the rain but life's tsunamis too. In addition to this fabulous memoir filled with tea, she also dropped "The Rarities", a collection of rare unreleased demos and remixes of her hits. There are many incredible female vocalists out there, Whitney was huge in my world, as was Celine but the instant I heard Mariah Carey's voice, this curly haired kid that loved to sing was blown away! From that day forward, the bar was set for vocalists in my books and none have come close. Although, I must say Christina Aguilera and Ariana Grande are the closest! Even when performing or recording my own tunes, I know if I can't hit the "Mariah whistle Note", vox is not warmed up enough for usage. So many things I learned from and took comfort in when listening to her music, especially to sleep when we had no food to eat. Aside from being the most incredible singer in the universe, her book "The Meaning of Mariah Carey" showcases that she is so much more than just a voice.

I do prefer to be read to or I pass out, its so hard to focus on reading for long periods, this was never an issue but after my accidents, I can't read without nodding off. This was discovered during school back in January, when I began my double majors. Even writing makes me nappy ha ha and yes non stop school! As much as I dislike this type of conventional schooling, it needs to be done, just as this dual review jibber needs to be wrapped up after this 900th edited rewrite!
