There is a lot to feel downhearted about on this Earth Day. Everyone and everything feels out of balance. People are suffering and the future is uncertain. In the face of a pandemic that has brought cities to their knees, a song can feel small. A melody can seem insignificant. This is a global moment of acknowledgment and respect for the power of nature and for so many of us - extreme challenges and sadness. But in the midst of all the loss and uncertainty there are signs everywhere of human compassion and renewal. The earth is healing. Bluer skies hang over China and Los Angeles. Clearer water and a positive effect on wildlife is being seen. In spite of all its troubles, it’s still a wild, beautiful world and if you need proof, it’s out there. You just might have to look in a different corner of the sky. Right now, there are so many brave people that deserve Medals of Honor: the nurses, doctors, grocers, the delivery and truck drivers, cashiers, gas station attendants, the scientists, restaurant workers, the single parents, and SO many others. I’m just a songwriter but my hope is that if I bring the light I have in my spirit to the table, maybe it could be a form of energy that lifts someone else’s spirit for a moment. Oh, What a World - dedicated to our planetary home and all the quiet heroes this Earth Day: you’re the northern lights in our skies. Link in bio. Proceeds of merch sales will benefit the World Wildlife Fund. . . . . . . . . art by @mindofbarbara // animation by @thisreo
Some days are easier than others. Even slapping on makeup and washing my hair..knowing I was going to be “seen” felt really overwhelming. (And I realize I could be faced with so many more challenges in this insane chapter. ) But these are uncharted waters for all living beings and emotional/mental health does not look the same for everyone no matter how it appears. Do what you can. It’s good enough. ♥️ Right now: take the biggest breath possible. Hold it. And let it go.
I’m having a MAJOR CLOSET SALE TONIGHT @stagetocloset 💜 Sooo many of my everyday clothes, shoes, accessories, and performance looks you’ve seen (like this vintage 2 piece set I’m wearing here ) are up for grabs. Proceeds originally were going toward Tennessee Forest Preservation but one light of the tragic events that unfolded earlier this week I will now be donating proceeds to the victims of the awful tornado that just destroyed Nashville and surrounding areas. Head to @stagetocloset for all the deets and send them a DM for a chance to purchase. They’ll get back to you when they can. There’s been an overwhelming response to the sale so please stay patient and know I’m so thankful for your help! New items could possibly be added too so check back often.
km + @boy__smells = all the obligatory lit puns you can think of. link in bio.
(if only this was scratch n sniff. ) 🔥 SLOW BURN is available for order once again! . . . . I brought my song to life in the form of a smell. The scentiment is exactly what the song sounds like. It’s a little dank. A little crisp. Androgynous. Earthy. Floaty but grounded. It’s the smell of a fire faintly drifting on the breeze as you walk to your favorite bar down the street and cherish slow sips of the drink melting in your glass. Briefly thinking about strangers on the other side of the globe in Beijing rushing into work but you’re right here, admiring the colors of the disappearing sunset and enjoying exactly where you are in all senses. . . . . This was really a fun creative challenge for me and I’m a big fan of @boy__smells - a queer brand with Texas roots. Hope you love what we created. Burn in a hurry. (link in bio. )

Obsessed with macro photos or microscope shots of actual snowflakes. Sky Sparkle. Galactic Glitter. 🤩 These ordinary wonders are so tiny it’s easy to take for granted how stunningly precise and intricate they really are. . . . . Johannes Kepler, the 17th-century astronomer and mathematician, discovered that all snowflakes are variations on six-sided crystals and each is totally unique. THESE ARE REAL THINGS. . . . The atmospheric condition as they fall determines how they’re sculpted when they land. Crystals formed in supersaturated air lean more towards being lacy, delicate and ornate. Temps around 27°F promote thin and flat crystals. In colder air down to 18 °F, the crystals form as needles, hollow columns, or prisms. In air as cold as -8 °F shapes become plate-like again, often with branched features. . . . Guinness World Records lists the world's largest snowflakes as those of January 1887 at Fort Keogh, Montana; one allegedly measured 15 inches wide...! . . . The 👏🏼 more 👏🏼 you 👏🏼 know
If I had any fucks I’d squeeze ‘em in here . . . Thank you @mskatiegoodwin for this! You know I love it. Xx
