Slept for the first time at the new place tonight. Ended up making French press and talking to this girl on the phone as if we were still in the same kitchen. OPRAH ONCE SAID, “If I had one wish for the world, everyone would have a friend like Gayle.” I know what she means. Thanks for being the best friend and interim roommate and soul sister anyone could ask for @malmichaelis.

Don’t let your cowboys grow up to be... (I do not know what this was for. And I don’t know why my name is hyphenated. I’m pretty sure I wore a cowboy hat because of Alan Jackson though. And yes I did yodel. Anyway cleaning out your mom’s garage is a worthy pass time.)

I wrote none of these songs but... these women, among others, are writing and releasing music that should be celebrated for more than just their [obvious] talent. They’ve fearlessly and boldly chosen to write songs that point to realities so much bigger than themselves. They are signposts. Lights. Uplifters. Truth tellers. And they should serve as encouragement for anyone wanting to do the same. People do speak, and people do listen, and there are many songbirds out there waiting to graciously and beautifully cut through the noise.

I was writing, in part: “We built a tower trying to climb to it in Babel. We shoot the illusion of it into our veins trying to fly to it on street corners. We work, toil, sing, serve, kiss and eat ice cream trying to construct it around us. If only we’d known all along that all we had to do was sit on a cliff face in Iceland to feel so near to Heaven. Here, the rain does nothing to dampen a single thing besides my ink.” Not exactly helpful or profound but @steviereesmusic‘s photo IS and I’ve never had a picture taken while writing anything before so that’s neat
