CONTENTS OF TABLE

A) GREETING

Greetings, all!

Very glad to be greeting you again!

First of all, my apologies for waiting until the last minute to write to you. I couldn't even read the previous email, it seemed so manic. Of course, I'm just being self-conscious (says Manic Depressive Girl!) But really, it was too much. Even pour Moi!

La raison d'aitre? Well, you may have notified yourself of the time it was sent. 10:29pm? That was approximatement thirty minutes before I was due to run out of my "office". And I was tired.

Now, I'm trying to also get out of here within 20 minutes. But I'm not tired.

Anyway, so much to say, but got lots to do. Moving tomorrow. Will still be in Philadelphia for my responsibilities and also dreamy public assistance, which I don't know if I told you, includes a free membership to the YMCA or a gym? How cool is that? Do you know I have a friend who just turned down a job because the health insurance was so crappy, and worse than being jobless because at least then you can have Medicaid (which I have)? Yeah. They chose to be temporarily unemployed.

Anyway, so what can I tell ya?



  1. NEXT CONCERT

I will be performing an opening set for Tret Fure again, this time on Saturday, March 8, 2014. Same place, The Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County
Media, PA. This was one of the best shows I've ever had the pleasure of doing. The sound was great, venue very nice, people friendly, great, organized volunteers, of course Tret was the consummate performer, and my Tom was there and was glowing with pride as he always was when he came to see me sing. The only thing I wish was that I'd remembered to bring my video camera, because the whole evening was stellar. I'm really looking forward to it. If you'd like to see the promo info from last time, here it is (
http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/153187). I'm fairly certain and confident you'll be seeing some more concert dates soon, hopefully house concerts, but for now, that's what I have for you good people :-)



2) SOMEONE COVERED ONE OF MY SONGS!

Someone covered one of my songs, yo!!!! Such a pleasant surprise!! I was on YouTube uploading new videos when I noticed on the side there was a video called "I'm Back Now" Cover by KASHTV. My first feeling was excitement. Someone covered my song, whoo-hoo!! Then I thought, wait a minute, "I'm Back Now" isn't exactly an original phrase. Mayhap it's a different song by a famous-er persun. Some hip new tune I haven't even heard of by an artist I'm too old to know. Then I thought – well, let's see. I played it. The first few seconds, I thought, well – uh, it's starting to sound like – hey, it's my song!! This is my song!! I shrieked and was happy my co-Bindlestaffer wasn't within earshot on accounta he likes to wear his earplugs at the "Deaf Teen" level.

Wow. This was a huge moment. Super huge. This was like the time I got the notice I'd won the $15,000 Leeway grant. Like the time I got the call I'd be doing an opening set for Lucie Blue Tremblay, whose music I grew up on (as a baby dyke). This was like the moment I saw I had a full page cover in the Philadelphia Daily News. What happens in these moments is you expand your capacity for joy. I really had to pause and take it in, in steps. I couldn't take it all in at once. I had to take deep breaths. And then I realized I'd let the excitement die down a little too quickly. I needed to raise my energy up a little more – let the universe know how much I appreciated this good, good thing. So I stayed happy, and laughed, and smiled, and did some more hip-hip-hoorah-ing, and waving my arms. Then, noting I want to set my life to have many more people to share such good news with, I called my good close friends and family members, especially the ones who are musicians and writers and understand the meaning of someone else doing your work in a public setting.

More here: SOMEONE COVERED A CX SONG ON YOUTUBE!! Kasheera of KashTV did a beautiful a capella cover of my song "I'm Back Now" Her version: http://youtu.be/QLLBBlXoDcw My original: http://youtu.be/GkrkyxYELf4 I also just saw a comment Kasheera made on my YouTube page of that song: "wow this is absolutely wonderful, your voice is so rich and soulful!" to which I replied, "Thank you, Kasheera! I just discovered your a capella cover of this song, and you did it beautifully. Thank you for the honor :-)"

I also want to share the importance of wishing others well. It's easy as an indie artist and/or entrepreneur to sometimes (or even often) feel jealous and envious of others. I've shared before in my article Jealousy & Envy: 7 Ways to Heal and Grow (http://wisdom-magazine.com/Article.aspx/1894) the importance of wishing others well, particularly when you're feeling jealous of them.

When I discovered this cover of my song on YouTube, I couldn't help but recall that only a few days ago, I'd noticed someone on YouTube had done a cover of one of the songs of my musical acquaintance Wilson Gil. I posted on his Facebook timeline "You're doing something right when others cover your songs :-)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPgN1RrUrik" to which he replied, "Yup that really makes me happy..The best compliment you could ever give me!"

I do covers of songs by people whose music I really like, or there's just one song by them I really like. But as I was explaining to my father, who's a musician and for some reason didn't really understand the whole "cover song" thing, I said, "Well, you know how I recorded "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", etc... Well, it's like someone else thought of me as Roberta Flack and covered my song! (Ewan McColl wrote that song, by the way, for Peggy Seeger. Credit where credit's due :-)

Anyway, so I'm someone's Kris Kristofferson, Bruce Springsteen, S.O.S. Band, B.B. King, Sheryl Crow, and everyone else I've ever covered. What a compliment!

Let's see, what else...



  1. AMRITA WATERFALLS BLOG TWEAKERY

    As you may know by now, I am very glad, happy and super duper thrilled to be posting on my Amrita Waterfalls blog (http://amritawaterfalls.blogspot.com). The last time I posted there was a couple of days ago. The time before that was in 2012. So, I'm glad to be back. But I've noticed it's really difficult to read what's there. It's not very reader/user friendly. So, I'm going to be working on that sometime in the near future. (Hopefully it won't be another year!) Just letting you know I'm aware of the problem, and have officially put it on the things to do list. I also must say I'm a little disappointed that I posted a video of my actual breastal reggiones and there have been only 16 views. 16 views, my dearlettes. Is that to mean thou aren't interested? This is making me wonder if a) You prefer not to see my boobs (and really, I don't expect everyone to want to see my boobs! 2) I just made it too much darn work in this age of instant gratificaccione and excessive internet stimuli, or 3) A combination of the two. Anyway, all's I know is (why do people say that - "all's I know"??) I better see some higher numbers otherwise these babies are getting' put away, for, oh, who am I kiddin', they'll be out and flappin' around as always! Oh, wait a minute, mayhap that's why you don't want to see 'em? Because they're described by Yorz Trooli (Moi) in such sexy descriptions as to be "flappin'"? Ha!! Soanyhoo (town in South Africa): I'll be working on that user-friendliness. So help me Goddess!



4) FIVE NEW VIDEOS!

Oh, yeah, I've got some new videos fer ya - Five to be exactical (aka "exactory").

These videos are as follows:

1) Cassendre Xavier's Raw Angel Blog - July 28, 2013 http://youtu.be/atVjL8ai16g

  1. Christianity and Suicide http://youtu.be/djR9lnc8dvc

  2. 3 Benefits of Fat http://youtu.be/3gdxCfbdvzc (Bonus related link "How to Wear a Crystal" http://tinyurl.com/CXCrystal)

  3. Never Hold Back A Compliment! http://youtu.be/lTFlUfxZHiE

  4. Soulmate Attraction - Make Space In Your Home http://youtu.be/FPveGD6WYTw (Bonus related links: Cassendre's Wisdom Magazine articles Soulmate Attraction for the Rest of Us http://wisdom-magazine.com/Article.aspx/2225 and Soulmate Attraction for the Rest of Us, Part II: You Are Healthy Enough for Love http://wisdom-magazine.com/Article.aspx/3060.

    PLUS!! Bonus Gratitude Video for My Donors http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cassendrexavier/message/356 This is a video I was not able to upload to YouTube because unless you use fancy editing techniques YouTube only allows 10 minute long videos, and this baby is 4 minutes longer than that. So I emailed it to my most devoted email-listians and thusly am forwarding the Yahoo Group message link elsewhere. Such as here (for example)!



5) DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME

I am very happy to have an outlet to share my thoughts and feelings with you all. Please do not trouble yourself by Video 2. I'm 44 years young and have had these feelings since the age of 8. I have tools for staying alive, and although things have been very tough lately, it's mostly due to the death of my sweetheart and closest I've ever had to a spouse, Tom, on whom I also significantly relied financially. So his death effed up my life, but it also gave me many gifts, such as opening my eyes to the fact that I really need to address some issues in my life.

Do not worry or fear. I don't. Well, at least not right now this second, and so what if I do sometimes? Don't we all? I read a wonderful quote which I couldn't find right now that says something like, "Whenever you see someone, be kind, because everyone is dealing with a great challenge." Or something like that by a Greek from The Olden Days.

So, yeah. I'm pretty sure that quite a few of you out there could make a similar video about how you're barely holding it together. I don't know, maybe you'd call it, "Barely Holding It Together" :-)

Thank you all for being here. I've got things to do. Objects to pack, and foods to eat :-)

Thanks for being here, as always, and supporting my art/work, and therefore, life.

I'll write soon, but most likely post a video sooner, heh-heh!

Cover song by Kasheera!!!

Cassendre



Z) FAREWELL BLESSING

May you trust yourself.

May you stay relaxed and positive no matter what.

May you know the power of your imagination to create what is.

May you master the skills of living.

May you trust the truth of your heart, no matter what.

May you use the ever-presence of fear to your advantage.

May you allow others to learn from and love you.

May you hug yourself often every day.

May you receive all the fondest dreams of your heart.

This, or something better, and may it be for the good of all.

Dearest bright and shiny frienderlings,
How art thou-est?
I am soooooo blessedly grateful and productivo.
Thanks to all of you who continue to send your light, love, and various kinds of support as I prepare to move my thing into storage this week, and my self, guitar, and Important Plant, into my dear relative's family's home.
Thanks to T for the wealth of information, J for the offer of rides and sharing your own similar journey, M for planning to meet me at a cafe to hang out and buy a CD, W and L for giving me a laptop today (!!), C for the 50 tokens I was able to buy with the public transportation vouchers you gave me, J for taking me out to lunch networking with and potentially hiring me again for take two of one of the best gigs I've had so far K and T for the advice on crowdsourcing sites, S for the donation of a car for me to sell which turned out to work better if you kept it but it's the thought that counted :-), E for your advice on applying for SSI, and G for asking if you could send a check instead of doing it online. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but you're still in my heart and will probably be mentioned next time!
Just a coupla things right now, eh?
I have 5 new YouTube vids fer ya:
Three of them involve my boobies NOT showing :-) (I've never been good at that mysterious, keep 'em guessing thing, sorry :-)
1) 1) Welcome - GoFundMe Campaign Update Tom's Passing (Part 1 of 2) http://youtu.be/Rpyr-iiVkrc
2. Welcome - GoFundMe Campaign Update Tom's Passing (Part 2 of 2) http://youtu.be/oFkz0YX6Pxs
3. Raw Angel Transformation Update July 26, 2013 http://youtu.be/Y9vhmPpNF6k
Two of 'em are, well, let's just say they're not publicly viewable on The YouTube. Nope, you have to show me you want it, by going to my sexy site
http://amritawaterfalls.blogspot.com. That's the general page. Then the specific page that has what I uploaded today like is this right here: http://amritawaterfalls.blogspot.com/2013/07/missing-david-warming-yvonne-erotic.html
That second link there will talk about my new erotic poem in two parts, which is two videos. It's called Missing David, Warming Yvonne. So it's a poem, that's, like, written down someplace, that I then speak into the video camera in the first video. Then there's a second video wherein some other stuff happens and I don't wanna ruin it for you, so why doncha just go have a look for yourself? It'll be fun!
It is interactive. It is erotic, and it is explicit. I do ask you to do stuff. Like read. No big whoop (as my people say).
Have fun and don't feel guilty or ashamed about it, for cryin' in a bucket!
So, yeah, the only place to get the links to those two videos is on that blog. You can't get it by keywording it on YouTube. Maybe at some point I will, but for now, I prefer to leave it here. The time, it will tell.
And, last thing, not everyone likes to use The Internets for financial transactions. So, iff'n ya want to spread your good stuff around to Moi (money-wise), and you don't want to use this link here: http://www.gofundme.com/3ik8b8, here's how ya do it:
Mail a personal/business check or *U.S. Postal Money Order (*preferred) to:

4530 Baltimore Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19143-3705
USA
Well, I do believe I've covered all the bases that are there to be covered within the timeframe in my heretonow possessione.
I wish you all the joy in mine heartal reggione, and that you run free and fearless and that I may continue to make you smile just a wee bit.
Here's a quote I found in my book today, of, you know, quotes. By me. And other people. This 'un's by Yorz Trooli (me):
I believe that it's never too late to succeed, miracles are as common as milk, and now is the only time we have.
That said, enjoy your now :-)

Gratefully and joyously (and just a little bit tiredly),

Hi,

New Video Update from Cassendre...
PEACE IN MY HEART - THANK YOU!
Dearest Friends,
Thank you so much for your concern and care!
I wanted to let you know thanks in large part to your positive visualizations, well-wishes for me, and donations of various kinds, I am much more relaxed and peaceful about my state of affairs in the next week or so.
I have just a little over $1,000 in my bank account now (GoFundMe fees in all come out to about 10% which I don't mind at all).
This, plus the marvelous benefits I have which provide for my food and medicines, mean I will be able to easily pay a crew to move my things into, and rent a storage unit on or before August 1st. Thank you!!!
Even more good news is that a dear relative of mine and his wife have offered, and I've accepted, to go live with them for a while while I heal and establish my new work and income life, and/or figure out the next step, whatever that looks like.
I am so grateful! I will be living, as I visualized from the beginning, in a clean, safe, well-lit room, in a loving home that I can easily afford to live in.
I will contribute however I can, by providing raw vegan smoothies and raw meals, some cleaning, and use some of the donations you provided to pay for consulting to buy a laptop I can afford and get my many musical and literary products uploaded to downloadable and easily saleable format.
I am very happy to let you know you don't have to worry about me anymore about August 1st. I'm covered!
The next year or so will see my attempting employment with my various diagnoses, living with an eating disorder, and continuing my path as a self-employed multi-media artist. The GoFundMe campaign continues at http://www.gofundme.com/3ik8b8
Thank you so much again for your continued support of my art/work, and therefore, life. I truly appreciate YOU!

Thank you so much again for your continued support of my art/work, and therefore, life. I truly appreciate YOU!

Make yourself a beautiful day,

When You Want To Write

Whenever you want to write something, and aren't sure what, try this:

What touches your pain? Write about that.

What is it your soul wants and needs to hear right now? Write that.

What is the medicine you need so much at this moment? Create that.

What is the love letter you need to read? Send that to yourself and to every member of your audience.

Write about that. Write that. Create that. Send that.

I Can See Up (new poem)

I Can See Up, new poem by Cassendre Xavier

I know everything's going to be alright

because no matter what's going in on my life

right now, in this moment, I feel relaxed

I feel prosperous

blessed

and abundant with creativity

intelligence

and resources that, eventually,

or sometime very soon

will translate into

significantly increased

monetary income

I might be down

I might be depressed

and I might even be homeless

and addicted

but

I can see up

I can get out of bed

I can take my medicines of various kinds

including love, friendship, healthy food and exercise

I can walk

I can dance

I can sing

have pleasure

and hope

I can think

dream

and take action

I am here in all my fullness

participating in this wonderful life

I chose

Here, in all my fullness

I am.

Your Organizer, Your Life

Dearest Friendal Type Units:

The kind of organizer you have can completely alter the course of your life. I used to be a We'Moon gyal http://www.wemoon.ws, then they went spiral only, which didn't work for me, because I was mainly using their beautiful datebooks because, spine out on my bookshelves, they documented the happenings de mi vida.
 Then, I tried the Slingshot organizer http://slingshot.tao.ca/organizer.html, which is absolutely adorable but has actually increased the recent chaos of my life, with its teeny tiny, no ass space to write any damn real thing.
 So now I see I really need a big-ass flat floppity lightweight jawn with an entire page of lines for each day. An EXECUTIVE organizer such as this for example: http://www.staples.com/Ampad-Gold-Fibre-Executive-Series-Project-Planner-Project-Ruled-Green-9-1/product_397233.
 This girl is growin' up. Time to visit one of my favoritest, most sexy, nerdiest-except-for-bookstores-or-libraries hang-out joint, STAPLES. Whoo-hoooo!!!!
 Actually, if somewhere along the way I find a nice big floppity flat lightweight organizer that's artsy and lunar-y or chyk-ly, then I'll take that, instead. But I do need that space. It is, after all, the final frontier :-)

Cassendre has posted a new update (2 New Photos)...

Hi,
Cassendre has posted a new update message to "Cassendre's Aug 1 Move +6 Months Help! "

New Photo Update from Cassendre...
$1,095 raised by 27 people in 7 days.Thank you so much! $5,505 to new goal of $6,600!) Original goal was $7,100. Then I received public assistance and non-cash gifts from friends which allowed me to reduce the goal to $5,820. Then, I realized I needed to create income while I apply for, and even when I receive disability benefits, so I added $380 for an annual membership to www.ConcertsInYourHome.com (includes their audition fee), $250 for corset and heels costumes to wear at said concerts, and $150 for a much needed bicycle for healthy recreation. Hence, the new goal. But you know what, everything that comes in helps perfectly with the most urgent needs of the moment, and I appreciate all of your efforts, including your prayers and well-wishes. Thank you again, I'll write again soon! -Cassendre
