Full of promise. That is the phrase that comes to mind as I gaze into the wide open road stretched out before me. A world of possibilities awaits as I begin my first tour with the non-profit organization Worldview Warriors, sharing poems, songs, and personal stories of hope and encouragement with Jeff Sanders and Zachary Joseph of newly formed worship band Rebuilt.
Send along your prayers, meditations, and positive vibes as we drive through Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York, stopping at coffeehouses, schools, homes, and churches for the next three weeks! I'll be listening to the still small voice whispering my dreams awake and hoping to make genuine, lasting connections even as we travel and transition so quickly, steadily moving from each destination to the next.
With such a busy schedule recently, I've really been feeling inspired to be more intentional with the time I spend with others, my conversations, and the relationships I have. One way I hope to offer a deeper, more intimate connection with friends and fans is through an exclusive video-- or call it a travelogue, vlog, documentary, mockumentary, whatever-- that will be included in the bonus package of my upcoming debut release. It will feature footage of performances, new friendly faces + places, and other random misadventures of a traveling poet.
I'm super excited to share this experience with you! Keep your eyes and ears open for my independent debut album, I'm a Lover and a Fighter 'Cause I Fight for Love, and self-published collection of poetry and artwork, Scribbles, both available Friday, November 29th. If you just can't wait until then, you can pre-order HERE. You'll still have to wait, but maybe it won't be as bad knowing that you've already purchased the album and it'll be on it's way to your doorstep soon.
Ultimately, I want this project to be a big thank you to all those who have been a part of this journey-- let's keep the dancing and singing alive and maybe I'll see you along the way. Until then...
Peace be the journey!
