On Purpose (and Reinventing the Delusion)

I haven’t written in a while. Once again life does what it does best!

The last two weeks were full of desire to stay optimistic and to find relief from the strife of adulting. This means I let thoughts or impressions percolate for far too long. I need little interludes to process and unpack…

In Progress on a Busy Day

Percussion & Repetition x 11. The formula to something ritualistic and guttural? I don’t know for sure, but I’ve had these phrases stuck in my head for a while.

My short podcast reaching its final form!

Hello Creatives, My schedule is still busy but I’m starting to find my groove. I started recording this version of my short podcast a few weeks ago but I figured it’s time I get it on the blog!

91718: to the time I held the guitar for three days when you departed.
