Thank you so much to those who visit the site, download the music, and keep in touch. Love is the conversation. There's never a dull moment, when you're loved and in love. I can feel my life changing, in ways that are bigger than I can describe, and my thoughts are to stay grateful, humble, and devoted to positive change. Thoughts are easily redirected if we choose to redirect them towards positive thoughts and this is what I've been practicing my whole life. Mastering the craft of positive thinking can be done.
My focus is you. How are you? How can I help you? Talk to me. I understand it is me doing my best when I promote you, spread your talents, and your great vibes.
Big shout outs go to the most talented people I know...
Sylvana Joyce, Jennifer Sullivan, Dar Pamilacan, JR Garcia, Evan Nachimson, Megan Talay, Miranda Inzunza, Josh Logan, Rachel Lynn, Rachel Ann Weiss, Billy Conahan, on and on and on. These are just a few of the most talented individuals I met in my (what went by fast) 2 years in New York. Ben Raetz, Tracy Thorne, Lord Lorax, Nick Danger, Mary Jennings, Matt Pless these people are always in my thoughts. Talented, kind, friendly, and incredible funny individuals. Love is now. Love is here. And love is the focus as I write this blog. Caity Brown and Nikolous Dimoulas are just a few talented people I met here in Maine recently. Love goes to them. Kosi. Anyone that i have not listed, I love you!
I am realizing that there is so much that can be accomplished when your focused and healthy.
Moving to Maine has been a whirlwind and having just begun relationships with all the great folks that I've met in New York, I understand it is some time away that is going to strengthen this love and build it up for my big return. Work has turned into 40 hour work weeks, stocking shelves, and bringing in product in the Auto Zone. It's never a dull moment, when I jump with excitement to realize that I am getting closer and closer to paying off those dreaded college loans. lol.
My thoughts are love and I am ready for this. I can feel this change coming.
I am sincerely thankful for every conversation I hold with the coolest people around. We're all in this together and music is what pulls us through.
Surrounding myself with family has created this undeniable energy that has me believing all is possible. If I did not have my family to fall back on after all the time spent in New York I do not know what I would do. It's funny, how I believe that when you meet someone... the right person.... just knowing that person and connecting with that person can create such feelings that love powers the engine and music steers.
Quotes are cool, new riffs have been created, and health is the main focus. So many "Mainers" smoke and treat there health terribly... It is with great determination and lots of vitamins, that I believe I can overcome the "smoking is cool" myth. Anyway. I wanted to write a blog just to mention some shout outs to my friends that keep me going.
Every phone call, every text message, every blog comment, they mean so much to me. I have found myself in heaven and understand this time is a time for me to collect myself, work hard, and put music on the back burner. Given how LOVED music is, I know it will return as the main focus before long, however I am no doubt taking some time off. There are exciting things coming, and new recordings are being recorded this season. But it is not myself that I want to talk about.
It is really my friends in New York, Jennifer Sullivan, my former roommate Dar Pamilacan, Dusty Weideman... these people have shown such devotion to keeping in touch and with each and every conversation, I find a strengthening of trust, connections, and above all love. Every time I find myself grateful enough to be in a conversation I find the most incredible person is shining through you, with loved energy and great vibes. Your addicting personalities have me missing you so dearly, and thinking of you every day.
Every one, Susan Johnson whose down in Key West! There is not a day that goes by that I am not thinking of you. Sarah and the girls down in the Carolinas. Splitting has been rough, and I know our love will bring us together.
May this blog post be filled with love for all who I have mentioned. I am impressed with your strength as you continue holding on and doing the best that you can do. You are all incredible people and your work is admired by I.
I am in no way frustrated or negative. Any past frustration has subsided as success has never so close to being something that I have worked hard at achieving and finally have achieved. Money. Money comes money goes. Money has never mattered as much as your love. It's funny. Money can always be present if we wish for it to be... but it is lending it, and sharing it that makes me happiest. To make someones day, is my focus.
Did you guys see Miley Cyrus rep the homeless once she was granted a VMA? That just about gave me goosebumps.... it's small things like that make me love Miley and appreciate who she is as a role model and icon for the next generation, and generation to follow. Miley's focusing on the homeless was great. It nearly froze me with awe, as I bowed down to her beauty and intelligence as a kind and loved girl. I would give anything to let Miley know how much I love her.
It's funny, cuz once you love someone, and you truly entirely and cant express how much you love them, love them. You can suddenly find yourself right in true love. There's people like Miley that I've met that I never thought I would ever be able to actually say, I know this person, and I love this person so much that it hurts, and I have been inspired by this persons act of kindness etc.
I'm thankful to be sitting back, inspired every day, and simply in awe by you.
I bought Evan Nachimsons Who Am I on I-Tunes this evening. It was honestly a real blast to stream the album for what feels like the first time. Evan's Billy Joel style, and loving attitude is going to take him places. FAST! lol. When my whole body ignites with goosebumps, I know that great things are right around the corner for Evan. I hope my purchase of $4.95 all goes to Evan, and that he is able to release more music to I-Tunes as it is one of the coolest things about life in general.
I-Tunes and all of its magic is another great conversation. After all, how fascinated are you when you purchase a track from I-Tunes and you have it forever. You can download the sounds of someone you love and replay there voice whenever you want. And if it gives you chills, even cooler, because to me, goosebumps are SICK!
Goosebumps slow down time. Goosebumps create a feeling that is mutual. Goosebumps create this magnetic pull on ones mind causing energy to flood serotonin through the brain and cause an affections love vibration to warmth, massage, and properly address a great feeling. And its alright, if your a musician and your not giving me goosebumps that is cool too. Cuz a lot of times its lyrics that will get the love muscles moving too. haha. I dunno... Even if music isn't what you specialize in, there are still so many things I love about you.
I conclude my blog by mentioning thanks to Caity and Nikolous for entering my life. Caity's voice is one that needs to be heard if you have not heard it yet! Her performances at the local open mic have blown me away! Caity has studied music and helped musicians get recording contracts and signed to a label! I mentioned to her this afternoon that I could not wait to blog about her. It's true. Theres so much about Caity that makes me love her and miss her everyday. I also get extremely excited to see her. I mean how many people do you know that work with bands in other countries, help put on folk festivals, while continuing a music career at the same time. Caity has gone to school in Chicago as well as locally and has been in and out of New York City, always doing something for the music industry. I am thankful for Caity and I can not wait to continue coming up with great ideas to help further her business. We will be doing a duet soon at the Open Mic of a great song that she turned me onto. It is by a groovy group named Forgive Durden and the track is called The Missing Piece. Caity also introduced a great track by The Decemberists titled The Mariners Revenge Song. That track is great, and Caitys cover of it was better than the original! Thank you Caity for all in which you do.
Alright fam, I love you. I am going to wrap up this blog post by letting you know true that statement is and hang in tight as great things are coming! Life will only be getting better from here and you are my heart and sole. Shout of to my brother, Matthew for working hard and being my best friend, and shout out to my cousins Heather and Amanda for being recently present in my life. Bumping into my cousin Heather in Dunkin Donuts today was so groovy! It's great how much she looks like Katy Perry to me! LOVE!!!!!!!!!
Stay in love everyone! Love is you.
The words burning like scriptures inside my brain
