The florescent lighted fear.

I feel afraid of this world.  If I’m being completely truthful here, nowhere feels safe to me these days and I don’t know that I want to be anywhere anymore.  I’ve lived my whole life thinking that the national headlines were for the news “out there” - “in here” we are saddened by the tragedies...

Two years today.

Two years ago today I set my alarm for 6AM, waking up earlier than anyone in the house. I quietly crept downstairs to my "office", sat in my cheetah print reading chair in the corner, journal in lap. I knew I had 30 minutes, at most, to take a moment for myself to start my... Continue Reading →

Window seat. (Day Five)

I'm sitting by myself in the library, my small table isolated from all humans but surrounded by books. I'm on the top floor, right alongside a large window wall overlooking the lake and all the fall colors from neighboring trees. It's so quiet that I swear I can hear the leaves rustling in the slightest... Continue Reading →

Words of love. (Day Two)

Believe it or not, I've always had a hard time communicating on a vulnerable level. I have no problem expressing myself in my songwriting or while up on stage. I easily vent about my frustrations or gossip about the latest happenings when sitting down with a friend. Lord knows I can literally talk the paint... Continue Reading →

Day One.

It's a Monday and it's November 1st. For whatever reason, kicking off a new month at the top of the week has always held significance for me. It's kind of like New Year's or a birthday - a reset, if you will. A chance to pay attention and not get stuck saying (once again), "Man,... Continue Reading →

The strong one + the sad one.

Confessions from a literal “bleeding heart”.  It’s been hard to share pretty posts when life doesn’t feel pretty right now.  So consequently, I’ve been relatively quiet on all fronts for a couple weeks now.  Which is less than ideal when one has just released their first new music in a year - with more releases...

Expand.

Woman. The word itself stands alone.  It is powerful.  It is big and bold, encompassing every ounce of the spectrum.  We feel.  We know.  And our days never lack in navigating when’s an appropriate time to 'feel' and when it's time to 'know'. During this pandemic, there were weeks I felt I was floating in... Continue Reading →

To begin.

Daily meditations, yoga stretches, long walks, a good book - I do these things to quiet my thoughts and center. But now, I'm being asked to hold a magnifying glass over my thoughts and memories every morning, and then re-center myself from where ever the chapter/exercise took me? And I'm doing this voluntarily? Correct.

I can do hard things.

Sat down to write a few days ago. But much like so many things in my life currently, I'm getting to it days after the fact... It is Saturday morning. The sun is shining brightly and I immediately feel drawn from my bed to be outdoors. I waste no time putting on yesterday's yoga pants,... Continue Reading →
