My name is Arianna. I like tofu, short walks on the beach and being the first to laugh at my own jokes. Hell, sometimes the only one to laugh.

My life lies somewhere between debilitating grief and immaculate joy. Always striving for the joy end of the spectrum, often failing to reach it.

I am a secretary by day and a singer-songwriter by night. I prefer my night job. It's the only one that feeds my soul.

Sometimes at my desk during work hours this overwhelming emotion washes over me. A feeling that hurts deep inside my chest. No, not heart attack symptoms. My heart is fine. Physically fine, anyway.

But hearts are funny things. The only way I know how to exist is by following mine, yet it hasn't always led me in the right direction. Even the misadventures have been interesting, though. Let me tell you all about it. The good and the bad. And everything between the lines.

About the Author

Arianna Vivian Khamsaly is an American Singer-Songwriter, Nashville Recording Artist, and Author. Also a Head-in-the-Clouds-Dreamer, Devoted Mother, Lucky Wife, and Unapologetic Feminist. A strong Believer in Human Rights and Racial Justice, she was born in a log cabin on the outskirts of a tiny town in far Northern California. Raised skinny dipping in the rivers, running barefoot on her childhood property, and learning to think outside the box, she was home-schooled most of her upbringing, and had to get creative in ways to entertain herself. She turned to writing, singing, songwriting, and visual arts as a means of self expression and as an escape from often crushing loneliness in the midst of life in such a remote location. Music and art run in her family. Her father is a renowned music teacher, singer and musician, her brother is a professional fiddle player who spent twenty years playing for stars out of Nashville, and her mother is a UC Berkeley Art Major. Arianna resides with her husband, Lefty, and their kids in Redding, California, while traveling to Nashville periodically to enjoy being immersed in the soul of Music City. Her most recent music release is an EP called "Anywhere But Here." It consists of four original tracks that speak of love, loss, individuality and the confines of conventionality in America today.
