The launch of @secretmidnightpress has rushed into a mode of not only creativity, but of DOING! I will definitely be navigating that energy back into original music through 2017. The stage has always been my happy place, and I owe it to myself to devote more energy to my time spent there. The 13 shows in October with Dodie, Tessa, Rusty, Dante, and Jon started a fire in me that won't be put out anytime soon. I can't wait to share with you all the songs in my head and heart.

So about last night...
Actually, lets go back twelve years to 2004 when I used to space out mumbling about my heart to one of my closest friends @ashleyapplepie. We grew up together always looking at things differently, feeling things deeply, and running from a different darkness that haunts most deep feelers. We wanted art in every aspect of life and life in every aspect of art. We got older, but we never changed; so last night we started SecretMidnightPress.com, a place for... feelers by feelers, something that will slowly grow into a place with the intention of bringing out what's hidden inside all of our wild hearts. We started pre-orders for our first poetry books on the site! Smoke Signals by Ashley, Mentha Spicata El Corazon! by Me.
I have no words besides
Spearmint the Heart!
There's a typewriter on the site that gives you handwritten poems. Go find your favorite and share them! Tag @secretmidnightpress
So tour has ended and life must resume, but not without deep incredible friendships and a mind full of memories you couldn't win in a lottery.
Being vulnerable with people may leave you susceptible to hurt, but it also opens the door to healing and self discovery. The risk is worth it to grow 💙 to mend❤️️ to learn💛
I miss these people already. They're all individually so talented, inspiring, and deep feeling. They've changed my life and I'll never forget it....
