well ... I don't know what has gotten into me tonight.. I am usually not much of a writer on here.. I guess I find it easier to speak through music or pictures, may be that is because I don't know who I am writing to.. so this, this is to me.
This week has been a serious struggle for me. I am doing way to many things at once right now, being pulled in way to many directions. It is hard for me to find peace. So today, I was driving around in my jeep, wind rushing past my face, silence filled my head, everything became a blur... And then... t was like i remembered how to breathe. I gasped for air, readjusted my eyes and everything around me found its way back to being beautiful again. There was so much I wanted to feel so much I wanted to share " my legs were tickling" as my sister and I use to say. I was reminded of who I am. I think sometimes I am afraid to voice it or to explain to people what I want to do or what I want to share. I don't want to seem overly confident in who I am, nor selfish or any of that. But what I have inside me is something that I cannot keep to myself. It is not meant for just myself. What I have inside me is meant to be shared, with everyone. And I will not deny it. I will not push it aside, give up, stop working, look another way until I have done all I can do. I am constantly reacquainting myself with well.. myself. Meeting new parts of me that have been hiding or have been waiting to be discovered. I have two heartbeats, two minds, and two forces because.. she lives in me, through me and around me. And so forgive me for talking in a state of we, but we wanted it, we still do and we won't stop till we do it.
to the moon and back

Fly, official music video
This song is dedicated to my dear sister Sophie Rose Barton.
Charcoalalley and I were on the island of Kauai last year and everything we touched turned into magic. This video was created off of pure instinct. There is no question that Sophie was leading our every move.
We know she always is always with us.
we love you

F eeling the fear and doing it anyway
E rasing the thought that it isn't possible
A ccepting who I am and knowing that it IS good enough
R ealizing anything is possible
Lately I have been in a big battle with myself. I am at a time of making some major decisions and having to really push myself and define who I am, where I am going, and what I am doing. I live by and always will the saying of "feel the fear and do it anyway." So tonight I rest it true again. I decided to define a part of the fear I face. But not allow it to stop me, allow it to push me. So what if what I want to do it close to impossible. That word does not exist. Never question that you can't do something, because ANYTHING is possible and limiting yourself is a choice.

On Top of the World
honestly this was one of the most epic things we have ever done. There is nothing more pleasing than pouring your soul out on top of a cliff looking out at the most beautiful body of water in the world. Surrounded by red rock and hearing our echo come back at us. My breath was taken away. Thank you to all the random boats who came around to listen it was fun to meet people from all over the world and to share our music with you. The pictures do no justice but trust me.. there was nothing better.

Red River Running
Maybe things don't happen for a reason. maybe we're just grasping for ways to make sense of the chaos around us. maybe we're giving meaning to things that have no meaning. maybe we're clinging to hope so hard that we forget about reality. What if we're wrong and nothing is mean to be? we're just lost souls wandering endlessly, desperately seeking comfort from the notion that things will work out in the end no matter what. What if we've tricked ourselves into believing that everything will be okay in the end just so we don't have a to face the reality that maybe it won't ?
somehow.. I still choose to believe ..
it will work out.
