Break Out West; Day 4

Posted on

Sleeping did not happen, yet again, for any decent length of time. However, I did wake up far less tired than yesterday. Fingers crossed for tonight. I went to 3 panels today, the first of which covered the ins and outs of making the trip across the border for tours and festivals. Having gone through […]

Break Out West; Day 3

Posted on

Because I was so excited last night, I did not experience this day with enough sleep under my belt. Nevertheless, I had a great time. I also had a great pulled pork slider around 5 O’clock. One of the panels I attended was an “Online Assets Review”, where each artist in attendance took turns having […]

Break Out West ; Day 2

Posted on

Let me start by saying … I forgot my pajamas. Also, the shifty internet at my hotel last night wouldn’t let me make this important edit to the previous post: ¬†In the airport waiting gate full of approximately 30 people, everyone was quietly sitting. Everyone except the lady who was having a conversation on speaker […]

Internalized homophobia… is not what I’m dealing with. But I think of that concept on a daily basis because it’s the same thing I have, only not about homosexuality. It’s about having “depression” and “anxiety”. Notice how I put those words in quotes? That’s because I have stigmatized myself. I don’t want those words to […]

Chapter 4: Sad to Be So Sad

Posted on

I really worked with my head to convince myself I could surpass any lasting emotional damage by using the age old spiritual suggestions of “pray for her”, etc. I can recall a moment after feeling such joy, I thought of her and borrowed my strength from that moment to call good wishes upon her, and […]

Chapter 3; Punch in the Face

Posted on

When I met Ciro, I was at a point in my life where freedom, happiness, and exuberance were peaking on a daily basis. I had been flying solo for a solid 7 months, and in that time had accomplished a major dream of touring. After travelling for a month in the states, which was magical […]

Chapter 2: In the Meantime

Posted on

Life carried on. I focused on other things. I relaxed. With my head turned away from the pain of possibly losing sight of the only vision for my career I had ever known, I was free to enjoy all the other wonderful parts of my life. There were twists and turns of other aspects of […]

    It’s been nearly a year since I last blogged. It’s been about 2 years since I last wrote a song…all by myself. “Why?” you may wonder(I have many theories). Every time I sit down to write explanations of my absence: I get lost,I freeze up,I ramble on, I lose my focus. The blog […]
