Meet R&R and Me – Artistic Journey and Love Story

Hi there, how’s everything going? I hope life’s treating you well.

My name is Indasa.

Feel free to call me “Das.”

I am a lover of:

  • The written word
  • The spoken word
  • Dance
  • Music
  • Visual Art
  • Number and bullet lists
  • Getting to know individuals

About eight years ago, I started a blog for single and solo parent homeschoolers. My primary goal was self-education because of the scarcity of homeschoolers in that area. When the world shut down, and a lot of single and solo parents had more than a few questions about home education, I took pride in being there to assist them.

During that time, I could also work more on all the things that I love. I’ve never been able to separate them. And I wouldn’t choose to do so. I love them all for different reasons—the same as with my children. I use many of the things I love as vessels to center myself and find emotional balance.

My love for performing brings me joy. I started singing before I could form words, started acting in Headstart (that’s the level before kindergarten), and started dancing when I learned how to control my arm flailing.

My first real taste of amateur voice-acting was when my elementary teacher asked me to read to the class for story-time. It had never happened before. This was something she normally did herself each day. I was shocked and grateful.

I have training and experience in different fields and have used that training not only to center myself but to keep the lights on at various times in life. Some of my former, current, and recurring forms of livelihood are:

  • award-winning vocalist,
  • a ghostwriter,
  • a voiceover artist,
  • an occasional choreographer,
  • vocal arranger,
  • composer,
  • vocal coach,
  • an actress,
  • a playwright,
  • a teacher,
  • and an expressive arts consultant.

Admittedly, it seems like I have a lot of irons in the fire. I have to exercise self-control and resist the temptation of pressing that shiny red button. Which is why I focus on those things that give me feelz. Stuff that improves us.

Believe it or not, even though I love performing, I’m an introvert who enjoys getting to know people and showing them genuine displays of love. Because of this, I exhibit extroverted behavior from time to time.

However, genuine expression isn’t only about being grand or showy. As an individual, I embrace my unique way of expressing myself, even if it may appear subtle or understated to others. I find beauty in the small details that express my thoughts and emotions. Whether it’s through my words, my actions, or my art, I strive to convey my authentic self in a genuine and meaningful manner. I discover my authentic voice in these subtle expressions, enabling me to forge deeper connections with others. I may not always be loud, but my expression speaks for itself.

My unique thinking and creative skills are what I’m known for. I love helping ideas come to life. Turning concepts into tangible creations brings me joy. I take pride in collaborating, problem-solving, and offering help. I feel accomplished and content when I see my ideas become reality. It feels good to help ideas come to life and make a positive difference.

I’m thrilled to share one of my greatest creations with you, Retreats and Resets!

I created Retreats and Resets as my way of helping others discover and love their best selves.
