Kina Cosper- "Girl From the Gutter" Few people can put into words the feelings I have like Kina. I bought her album in 2000, and ended up listenting to NOTHING but this CD for almost 6 MONTHS STRAIGHT. I dreamed of one day meeting her, and still do. 2000-2001 was a pivotal time in my life and I will always have her music playing as the soundtrack. Even today, when I feel down, or need encouragement, all I have to do, is pick her name in my playlist, hit play and Im ready start again.
"Am I less of a lady if I don’t where panty hose My momma said a lady ain’t what she wears but what she knows…Sometimes I shave my legs and sometimes I don’t Sometimes I comb my hair and sometimes I won’t Depend on how the wind blows I might even paint my toes It really just depends on whatever feels good in my soul" - India Arie
▶ My Thing Is My Own (18th Century English folk song) performed by Ann & Nancy Wilson of Heart --Lyrics: A sweet-scented courtier did give me a kiss And promised me mountains if I would be his But I'll not believe him, for it is too true Courtiers promise much more than they do My thing is my own, and I'll keep it so still Other young lasses can do as they will
