Flashback to this little ray of sunshine, just because. Hard to believe 8 years old you’ll be this Spring, standing almost to my shoulders already. Oh, and I’m finally letting go of those rad 70s velvet carpet ride pants. Available now over @the.roots.collective. #reminiscing

#fbf to these little hands @noman_22 πŸ˜πŸ‘β€ This was our going away + Spring birthdays celebration almost two years back in Nashville. So much has changed since then it almost feels like another life, but many hearts remain. So happy we will be sharing reunion with these dear friends this year.

These storms will not tear my sails. They will feel my inner peace and blow on to more fearful shores. πŸ’œπŸ’« #peacebeginswithin #bethecalmwithinthestorm #destructionandcreationgohandinhand #letgo #letlove #peacefulactivism

🌊 New Chapters 🌊
Yesterday, for the first time in 8 years, I started a part-time job with my dear friends @armadilloconsignment_modern. β€’
I was scared as all get out to put myself out there again. That somehow a job might take my Soul. Ha! πŸ˜‚ β€’
What I realized though, was that once I made space to receive abundance, however it need come, it did, fast and with ease. And I am doing something I truly care about; helping people I love. And you know playing in a mid-century wonderland makes this vintage loving Mama happy. πŸ˜‰
Big gratitude to everyone for the love and support as I embark upon new trails. I am truly grateful for your presence. Now off to make some pb&j’s and enjoy some time with the boys before I head off to play again. 😘 #perspective β€’
See you tomorrow for Music is Medicine Monday, loves. Happy Sunday. πŸŽΆπŸ’«πŸ’œ

Dreaming of Spring and the promise it brings. Open and hopeful. The flower never lets uncertainty prevent its blooming. It believes in the warmth of the sun, the cleansing tears of the sky and the foundation of its roots. β€’
What seeds are you planting for the year ahead, loves? Let’s dream together, shall we?
A few seeds I’m planting…
🌰Record and release new music with quality sound. (Tools already on their way.)
🌰Thrive in my musical gifts.
🌰Sieze opportunities to co-create and play. 🌰Open to give and receive abundantly.

We will always rise. 🌟 β€’

#Anarchy gets a bad rep by those who seek power and control, but I believe we are smarter than that. Overcoming inequality begins as soon as we educate, collaborate, empower ourselves and stop feeding the initiatives of the wealthy few who seek to divide us. β€’
What if I told you The Women’s March, Black Lives Matter and more were not grassroots at all, but instead, created and funded by white, sickeningly wealthy elites who meddle in the majority of nations and desire a one world government to control all of humanity? Look up George Soros, and begin there. How better to control than by starting seperatist initiatives that keep us at odds? β€’
#unite the peacemakers, artists, truth seekers and lovers of all kinds. There will be no one race or gender that faces this movement, because it includes us all. It is time to come together as one and #rise. Will you follow, or will you fly? β€’

πŸŽΆπŸ’œ A MUSICIAN’S CALL πŸ’« ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE πŸ’« #fbf, to a post from last October that I felt like reviving. πŸ’«
My kind Mother-in-law is gifting me a microphone, so that I may have the opportunity to create better quality music to share with the world. I would love your input and recommendations. I would also be happy to trade vocal work for home studio setup equipment you may have to spare.
Do you know???
β€’ Best USB vocal mic solution for $50?
β€’ Open Source recording software for PC (Windows or Ubuntu)?
β€’ Anyone willing to trade vocal work (spoken word or lyrical) for home studio equipment?
β€’ Advise on setting up said home studio?
I am open and ready to learn and share. Please, help me grow my passion and gifts in the world. Help me live my dream. πŸ’ž

Found this tea at discount grocery, and it is so yummy! That’s my Mamo’s vintage strawberry mug. I pulled it out today for a bit of extra comfort. Truth is, incubating and nurturing our own business while also supporting me as a stay at home Mom, now living in one of the most expensive cities in the world, has begun to wear on us. For several years now, we’ve trucked along on a shoe string, incubating our passions, our gifts in the world, and now at what feels like the millionth final hour, we are tired, our hearts hurt, and our Spirits feel weary. I write because I need to let it out. I write because sometimes, it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows when you decide to take the leap of faith and blaze your own trail. Sometimes our cups feel so empty we want to disappear. I’m going to spare the “how I’m rising above” speech for now, because I want to believe it. I do. But for now, I need to feel this. I need to honor this pain as my teacher.

Some days I wake up on the wrong side of the bed with a momentary lapse in memory that I’m an infinite manifestation of Creation in flesh for a while. That in my world, all the magic begins and ends with me, and how I choose to bear witness to and create within it. I notice, when life’s little struggles get me down, my focus has become too narrow. For when I connect through the eyes of the cosmos, the perspective of my existence here comes flowing back with hope in it’s wake. πŸ”­πŸŒŒπŸŒŽπŸŒŠπŸŒΈ #OMniversal #perspective

πŸ˜‚πŸ’” The struggle is real. Sometimes I’ll just leave my phone at home or in the car, so I’m not tempted. How do you balance #socialmedia with loved ones?
