Harry's Little Girl
Written and performed by Rochelle Spooner
During this time of quarantine, I have nothing better to do but reflect upon my past. Harry‘s little girl is one of those stories and you guessed it I am a little girl so you can hear my adventures I had growing up. I was isolated as a child and now isolated by a pandemic all the feelings of loneliness and anger return in my writing. However, so does my humor. I hope to improve my attitude of compassion and become wiser and I hope you feel my energy that will help you identify with yours, with an understanding heart.
