Thanks for checking my page out! I wanted to explain in my own words exactly what my intentions were with this project because its very complex and gets the wrong impression a lot. When most people see the Boom Boom Room they usually see a really cool over the top home bar or "miniature night club" as my friend Jill called it. It most definitely is a miniature nightclub and my favorite room in the house. There is also a story embedded in the walls of the Boom Boom Room. There's a lot of symbolism and things that are camouflaged to most people. Other than myself, there is probably only one other person that could "decode" the room. Day in and day out I released my pain into that room. He called it my "suicide room" once. I've been asked why I would want something so large in my home to remind me of a difficult time. The Boom Boom Room reminds me everyday I have strength to conquer anything I set my mind too. It reminds me to never let negative things have so much impact and to focus on the positive things when they do. Most importantly, it gave me a story to share with someone that may need a little inspiration to get through another day, a platform to reach out to others and resources if professional help is needed. A good friend once told me...
I won't let you down.
I dedicate this to six very important people. My cousin, Trinity Sledge who lost her life in a Murder Suicide. My good friend Mary Weddington... In Memory of her daughter Lexi Weddington (Suicide Victim), My Grandmother now Guardian Angel, Birdie Richardson who guided me through the hardest period in my life safely, Jill Perry, my friend of 28 years who lost her battle with cancer; the kindest soul I've ever met. Last but not least my favorite sidekick, Aysia Von Dixie. She's been my emotional support, my ride or die, my best friend and I don't know what I would do without her. Special thanks to my VIPS also for checking on the strong one when he wasn't strong at all.
