Thank you!!!! to everyone who came out saturday night and to @wildhorsesaloon, thank you!! st. patrick’s day was nothing less than what i would’ve wanted it to be!! we had a great time and can’t wait for the next!☘️
Have you ever felt like you were letting someone down?
i guess this line is like that idea “you can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself first.” i know i’ve had situations where i wanted to be a friend to somebody when i was having a lot of my own issues, and it was hard to relate to anyone through that fog of insecurity and self doubt. so i wrote a song about it instead. the link for youtube/soundcloud is in my bio.
I think last night was my favorite show in ny thus far. you were great last night everybody! thank you to the bitter end for having me again, see you next month. 🙌🏼🎙

Ask for nothing in return - the power of asking 4/5
what if i told you that the most powerful way to get what you want is to not only give, but to also to ask for nothing in return?
sounds crazy, right?
this is exactly what i have discovered to be true; to give and to ask for nothing in return is how to get everything you want. +++ for the past week, i have been on vacation visiting family in florida. the other day, one of the kids took something back that they had given away and then one of the adults said, “don’t be an indian giver!” “i haven’t heard that expression in a long time,” i remarked.
my wife, being british and of indian descent, looked at me perturbed. “what does that mean?” she asked. “well, first of all, it refers to ‘native american’, not actual indian,” i said. “but it’s something we said when we were kids. it was a playground insult that meant you took something back after giving it away.” by the mid 90’s, the phrase ‘indian giver’ had faded from my vocabulary, so i was curious to reflect on it through the lens of what i’d learned since then.
obviously the phrase embodies the european explorers’ mistaken thinking that they were in india, but i had a sense something deeper about it didn’t fit for me either. [continue reading in comments...]
Getting back into my music a lot more lately, something that i am very happy about.
want people to prepare for a change as i want music to become a bigger part of my life and i am going to be posting more stuff soon. keep posted.
There is a concept that one of my favorite scholars uses. she often refers to the “house” that she lives in. this “house” is not literal but rather, represents everything she is as a person. her beliefs, passions, and emotions, are all this “house”. i enjoy this illustration for two reasons. the first, is that it conveys a message that she is unafraid to be herself. she embraces herself, so completely, that she is proud to call who she is, home.
the second, is the inference that there are other possible, “houses” that differ from our own. she posits that people navigate life differently. additionally , she recognizes that we are not obligated to accept each others home as our own, because, well, we are all different, and that is okay.
this notion that we are allowed to be ourselves , to be different, and to be happy is so freeing. too often, we forfeit the right to be ourselves, because we are dependent on the opinions of others. we are afraid to be uncool, afraid to stand out, to be different. the truth is that there will always be opinions and suggestions on how you “should” be but these opinions do not have to define you. ask yourself, who am i meant to be? then consider, will i allow myself to live in my own “home”? or will i permit others to build this home for me?
