Giving Thanks

Giving thanks,

As I’m writing this letter to you I can hear the tuning man downstairs; repeated notes, shrill and loud float up to my room. It makes me think of life and living and how sometimes, being me feels messy and I feel just like those notes: shrill, too loud and out of context. And then I open my bigger-vision-eyes and see the larger picture; I am an instrument with incredible capacity for beauty and love; and so are you.

Who’s in that photo above and why is it in this email?
I grew up with these two sweet ladies. Maria Misin (left) is my grandma’s cousin and Marioara is the neighbor across the street. This village is my happy place and the house behind them is the one I sing about in “Grandma’s House.” (Download on Itunes)Why their photo? As you probably know, I put together a short documentary that Forest inspired me to create called “Transilvania Frumoasa” – Transylvania the Beautiful. These ladies are featured. (read more)

You know how I like to show you stuff before anyone else gets to see it, and tell you to keep it a secret and ask you for your feedback?
I’m doing that again.Audio still needs work. It’s nice, just not perfect. I’m also going to add my parents in the thank you section.

Sending you much love and wishing you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
