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...

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...

My silver-lining.

*LONG, TEARFUL POST ALERT*  It’s wild how stillness has the power to change so much…our world as a whole, but also the world inside the head and home you’ve been isolated within.   Truthfully, I thought I’d get by this quarantine relatively unscathed.  I’d just made it through cancer with my sanity still intact, so...

Truce.

It's 8:15AM on a Wednesday. I'm sitting at the kitchen table, right beside our big front window with an iced coffee, our little boring street serving as the perfect morning backdrop for some writing.  Straight ahead of me, our three dogs are sleeping on the couch.  I keep a watchful eye on them, one in...

365 long short days later…

Dear Uncle Mike, I don't know how to start this letter.  If I'm being truthful, just the thought of writing it had my stomach hurting all morning.  It's one thing to think these thoughts internally, pray my prayers in the morning...but I can physically feel the weight on my chest as I write it out....

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 →
