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 →

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...

The first.

I've sat down to write this more than a handful of times over the last week or so, trying to share some recent and sensitive news with everyone.  Every time, I carve out an hour and I just start to type.  And every time, my free-flow of emotions settle differently, my "message" varying with each...

365 long short days later…

The ‘hood’ that raised us

I'll start this post off with a simple "Thank you" to whoever is reading this. Whether it's been a random call or text to say Hi, a congratulations on my engagement, leaving a comment on a video I posted, or coming up to me after a show... I'm thankful (and still socially awkward with compliments)... Continue Reading →

the hometown bubble.

I haven't been very good about writing lately.  (I sound like a broken record.)  Aside from some journaling here and there and starting a few song ideas, I've allowed my mind to be distracted by other things... travelling, packing/unpacking, being outside as much as humanly possible, Harry Potter books (I've decided to read the entire...
