The Sacred Drum

In January 2020 I began having deep, uncomfortable feelings in my chest / heart region. This started shortly after a family member’s emergency hospital visit so I wrote it off as stress. As February rolled around the discomfort was more consistent and really agitating my sleep. Thankfully, a wise and insightful friend, who also happensContinue reading “The Sacred Drum”

At the ❤️ of the Matter

A single candlelight illuminates even the darkest room, yet the brightest light casts the darkest shadows. The shadow cannot exist without the light.

People often speak to me of theirContinue reading “One Foot In This World, One Foot In the Next”

Dance, Cry, Laugh, Hug, Howl at the Moon, Tell Stories, and (most importantly) Stay Human!

It’s not that I relish performing live before an audience. To be honest I’m very reclusive, as most artists probably are.
