N Y C and Nashville, United States
Hippie, Gypzy, Biker Chixie. Yep, that's me. www.bikerlady.com and www.chromecowgirl.com - my websites and I welcome your comments in this blog called Down the Road a Peace. Because, after all "do you wanna a peace of me?" : ) I'd love to hear your thoughts, so share them here. Personalize the topic and make it your own by sharing your own experience relative to the topic at hand, or let's create a new topic. U R Loved by Me.


The humble home studio that packs a punch.

That's my beloved dude, Pat Lassiter, bass player, writer, arranger, producer and all around amazing person. Our humble home studio packs a punch. . . Pat is super passionate about music and works on it day and night, either performing or composing, or helping to produce an up and coming artist with little bits of funds. He inspires and instills hope in other artists. All his years playing around the country, slingin bass guitar in ol honky tonks and down on lower Broadway in Nashville has prepared him for the wonderful opportunities in his life, and he's sharing the blessings with others. His main gig is bass player in country music star Tracy Lawrence's band. You'll hear his stellar bass playing on Tracy's forth coming album entitled The Rock, a country inspirational collection of music that truly rocks, about THE ROCK...Christ o' mighty!

He is working super hard on our music project. These are our passion works. Lyrics written from the heart, music composed from very deep compassion and life experiences...from humor and from good times and tough times. These aren't so conceptual as to start with a topic and then gather all the words related to the topic and assemble a song like puzzle....no these are hard and fast words bubbling from experience and living life hard, and our novelty outlook on things.

Stay tuned my friends, we are slowly but surely getting this project completed! Thank you, my luvs, for hanging in there and sticking by my side as this striving artist had persevered to get this project complete with all the odds stacked against her. That's the way of the rebel biker chick isn't it?

FElion JazZ

The beautiful face of my FElion, Jazz. He's one of my two kitties. They are my soul protectors. At night he'll stretch his little body across my heart and reach his paws over my head and bury his face in mine and purr. He'll stay like that for a little while. Then he'll lick my cheek and go curl up at the foot of the bed. He's so much fun and filled with love and wisdom.

Felioness GypZ

My beautiful FElioness. The other protector of my soul. She loves to chat and will clean my hands and face and nuzzle me. GypZ JingleZ runs on her tippy-toes with her little tail floating. So perfect. So lovely. She is truth in all her feline prowess.


In Poverty and Passion.

I just heard these words used in a sentence with a bunch of other words and it struck my heart. So, here we go.

True art is performed in poverty and passion. And that means so many different things. I mean, life is lived in poverty and passion.

My work right now is being composed, performed and delivered to the world in poverty and passion. The backer is passion. Everything I do is backed by passion...not money, not who I know and all this yarn.... No, it's the gritty passion with all it's salt and earth. Sweaty passion. Tearful passion. Super nova love passion. And the poverty is the sweet lack of finances to purchase a lofty opportunity or a channel of definition position to poise the art into a successful place.

Nope...this is aim, fire. Put it out there because you have to in order to breathe and have your heart pump the blood of purpose through your being.

That's how you know something is truthful. Because you do it anyway because you have to or else you will suffer in your spirit. Your mind will spin and your emotions will flail in all different directions. You have to express in all your poverty, with a vehicle of passion -- because therein lay the riches. The true wealth called courage.

Yes, as you birth your art and your heart's desires into some form of reality, cry those tears of liquid courage. Roar your visions to life. Just BE in all your poverty and passion.

Bikerlady & Chrome Cowgirl Newsletter Spring 2009

Hello beautiful windbrothers and windsisters. Riding season is here for everyone. The snowbirds can rock that throttle now!

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2009. I decided to send it for St. Patrick's Day because it's such a big party day. Very cheerful and fun. Riding a motorcycle or tooling around in a hot rod is always cause for celebration too....

Yes, there's been so many changes in the world of this writer and artist. Most of you know that I have relocated from NYC to Nashville, TN. Though, I still go home to NYC so I might as well have two homes! Who Said A City Girl Can't B Country? eh?

The time has come upon us all to unite even tighter than ever and to be as innovative and resourceful as possible. This is a time for us to reach deep into our creative being and experiment, become like children and tap into the wonder of not having all the answers, so that we can be led to discover our inner strength and power in the face of adversity. We all have it in ourselves to rise up, to be true and spirited, to be there for one another, and to make lemon out of lemonade, open a stand and create a profit from our talents.

My website is still maintained by little ol' me and I'm looking forward to having it done professionally so that it looks cleaner and sleeker. There's an investor who has been considering my merch line and this is really good news after so many false starts. I've collected lots of design ideas for my line. Got a keepin on keepin on no matter what!

I would love to hear your stories about how your motorcycle is your motorvator during the most challenging moments of your lives. How does your motorcycle inspire you to live your dreams? Share with me the stories and if you allow me to do so, I'm going to post some of them in my newsletters and blogs because we all need to feel inspired. Email your stories to chromecowgirl@gmail.com

click to read more.

The publisher is creating a comprehensive blog and social site to support the book and when the design team has completed their finishing touches, I will send you the link to it. There are lots of Chrome Cowgirls out there and we need to connect and unite as one big posse of girl power riders!

Available in bookstores everywhere and at all online retailers. Cool.

Sasha & Motoroadeo MMC - "Ridelicious" album single debuts - Road Diva Music

Sasha & Motoroadeo MMC is a music project that has been in the works for several years. I'm happy to announce that the first single, "Ridelicious," from the forth coming album, is available at your favorite online retailer (I-Tunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster, and more).

The live act is in the planning stages and will feature several awesome Nashville musicians who live to ride and love the motorcycle lifestyle, the hot rod culture, and just about anything to do with wheels and the road. You'll also see my budding DJ skills during the live Motoroadeo show and my VJ mixing skills too.

The single Ridelicious features producer, bass player and arranger, Pat Lassiter who is also the bass player for Tracy Lawrence; Shawn Hughes who is now the drummer for Jasmine Cain; Jeff Caughron also from Jasmine Cain on guitar. I'm on lead and backing vocals and did some of the loop programming and co-produced, too. The track was mixed by Rich Travali and mastered by an NYC legend.

The full album containing 14 tracks will be released this year. More about the full release will be available soon.

In the meantime, feel free to go to my music myspace where you can hear some of my other songs (demos) which are now in the process of becoming fully produced tracks. I'll keep you updated on the progress of my music project

She Rides a Motorcycle - a documentary film project.

Since writing Bikerlady: Living & Riding Free! I've been keen on creating a unique film about the history of women in motorcycles presented from a very artistic and grass roots perspective. I'm pleased to announce that this project is officially underway. We are collecting information now about legendary riders from around the world, pioneers in the industry, motorsports legends, celebrities and regular gals who ride to live. More about the co-producers and this project will be formally announced within the next month. The forthcoming website will detail all information. To get the ball rolling now, submit information for consideration in the form of a brief letter explaining your participation in the motorcycle culture, or perhaps someone you know. Then we'll coordinate from there, once we receive your letter.

Yes, my windfamily, this is a passion project that celebrates our love for two wheels and the wonderfully diverse culture within this lifestyle.

You can e-mail your letter of introduction directly to me at: chromecowgirl@gmail.com
Celebrate another year around the sun and shine!

My dear windones, reach out to me on Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter by going to bikerlady which will link you to everything else. I would love to hear from you and stay connected!

Keep on s'milin my friends.

I've been reflecting about the things I have to change in life and stumbled upon the NIV Holy Books excerpt. I was looking for something else...inspired by my friend Rev. Bobby Lewis...and ended up here. My comments are in another color.

Matthew 7

Judging Others
1"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

3"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
6"Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

Mum is the word...still the mind. Why does anybody have to judge anyone? Ewww. That person rides a Honda not a Harley mean uncool. Mean thing to say. Not that I say that, it's what I've heard. Honda's are cool bikes, too. I'm itchin' for a vintage Honda CB750.

I need to take the logs out of my eyes. Too many. I could build a log cabin...what's going on here? Get your love in line, girl, I'm tellin myself....we're all one bottom line even the sucky mean people who...I can't judge and say they're sucky, right? Jeez. And it's important to stop decorating pigs with my pearls...you know what I'm sayin'.

Ask, Seek, Knock
7"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

9"Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

I'd so love to be given as soon as I ask...without so much as pounding on the door to opportunity. Bang Bang BANG! May I have this opportunity that I'm seeking? Then I need to follow that, or maybe preceed it with , Hello, God, it's me, Sasha. Um. Can I have [it] according to YOUR WILL? Instead of Hello God. Gimmme. 'Cause I want [it].

Yes, there are those that'll smile with a gift-wrapped stone and say, bon appetite! And there are those that'll give you a snake with a side of lox and a bagel and say, dig in! I love to give good gifts to friends and family. But the gifts come in small packages, like... hey man, I'll drive you to the airport. or simply, I'll watch your kitties while you go on tour. Maybe it's, hey, let me cook for you, relax. Or any little thing that means alot. But I say that I need to give more...give it all away with nothin in return. Yes, I like to Be good for nothin'.

The Narrow and Wide Gates
13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Wide open, perfectly smooth pavement, 70 miles an hour. Nah. I'd rather have the tiny, random backroad that gives me that rich deep experience of REAL, TRUE, HONEST...stop and smell the roses and look deep into the soul of another. Let's go.

A Tree and Its Fruit
15"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

21"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

Oh my. Can somebody say NAIVE? Hello, my name is Sasha Naive. Pretty name ain't it? Pretty little sheep how come you're barking instead of saying baaaaah. Do you have a cough? Pretty little sheep come closer. Sit in my lap. Let me snuggle with you... OW! Why did you bite my head off? Hey! I need that heart. What the heck?! How come my pretty tree is bearing rotten fruit? Oh crap. There are worms in my fruit? How can that be I tended and tilled? Oh, it's a bad tree? And it won't grow good fruit? Is that the same as decorating a pig with my pearls?

Doin' the WILL of the Father. Yeah. Lord Lord....I was running through life doing everything IIIIIIII wanted to do... yeah yeah you mentioned something about wanting me to do something for you but IIIIIII thought if IIIIIIIIII did what IIIIIIIIII wanted, it would satisfy your I AM.

Nope in that Hope.

The Wise and Foolish Builders
24"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."

28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

Rock. Rock. Rock. Rock. Remember always to ROCK the throttle of life and lean deep into the palm of the ONE. It's okay to admit you did wrong and you made the wrong thought decision, and you were angry and it's all okay.

Just remember... you're in the midst of a journey. Course correct.
