This hunger This hunger, it is unlike any other In my stomach I feel the rumble storming in, like a rolling thunder Through the trees like an icy breeze crashing down, like a tsunami You hear the drumming, and you hear the trumpets The dreams are calling like a summons With a hunger matching starvation… Continue reading Poem: A Thunderous Hunger
It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything. So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well.… Continue reading I think I just moved back to TN
How do you make your dreams come true? Is there some secret formula that's been written and hidden in a safe in Mr. Krabs' office? I certainly hope there isn't. I'd be pretty pissed. Since I was a teenager, I've been pursuing my dreams, and for the last six years, I've been pursuing them in… Continue reading I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Dreamer
At some point in our lives, we've all had someone tell us "Change is good." Some poor souls have had to suffer as those hounding words were repeatedly hammered into them (ahem, teenage me, ahem). It took my angsty self awhile to understand and accept those words. And they were hammered with necessity--I was a… Continue reading Changes
As a few of you know, for the past 10 days I’ve been on a trip in California. It’s definitely been one of the most adventurous trips I’ve been on—driving from Laguna to San Francisco to Eureka, then hiking all over northern Cali and staying in a camper... it has been a very loving, happy,… Continue reading Saying Goodbye and Signing Off
As my eyelids part I pay recognition to the slow rhythm of my beating heart Lub dub... Lub dub... I awake only to witness the sun pave way to another day As the sky is lit by the touch of a flame a subtle peachy haze the nightlife slowly... fades... away When the birds sing… Continue reading Poem: The Dawn of a New Day

I’m going to break my own mold in this post and do something different..dare I say positive even!
The lovely and incredibly talented Mr. Hush Hush (Hush) blew me away earlier when he featured me on his latest post, giving my blog recognition. His extremely kind words inspired me to do a post on just how much this blog, and each and every one of you, mean to me.
I started this blog two days after someone I cared deeply about broke my heart and used each and every one of my insecurities against me. I didn’t know what else to do. I wasn’t inspired to do any of the normal creative things I’ve done in the past, so I decided to try blogging as a means to tell my side of the story. Aside from writing songs, I had never really written. I didn’t know what to expect, but…

"We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." Chuck Palahniuk I know, I know; you don't even need to say anything. For a while there, I was spitting out posts every other day. Now look at me. It's been four days since my last post and… Continue reading Why I Blog
There isn't much that feels better than moving forward. When I set out to do something and then do it, there's just a feeling I get that's incredibly intoxicating. Productivity is something like an addiction to me, and I'm a fiend. That's why I'm so obsessed with lists--even if it's a list of small things,… Continue reading Progress
Home is where the heart is. My home--my family--is my everything. Really, it's funny I say that, because anytime I decide to move, I purposely make the decision to stay living halfway across the US from where my family is. Honestly, I just think there's more I need to learn on my own, and that's… Continue reading Someone Take Me Home
