About a year ago I was introduced to politics. Obviously I knew they existed. There were certain topics that I was interested in like the environment, global warming, FDA food labeling, nutrition and physical education in our schools and world peace. But I didn't get involved. I voted for the first time in 2009. Obama. I'm proud that I did, but I still didn't get too involved. I began to realize that our country was fucked. So I moved away from it. To an island off of Tahiti. In 2012. Where no one could find me. Where the government couldn't spy on me through my computer camera. Where I didn't have to listen to the ridiculousness of Sarah Palin. 3 months later I came back to the US and I've been back ever since.
Politics haven't been a big part of my life. My mom didn't really watch the news. Growing up there was little emphasis and discussion around it. That paved the way for my ignorance.
Ignorance. And I say that with an honest voice because I am mad at myself. I am mad at myself because I didn't care until now. Because I have never been effected by it until now. No, I am not getting blown up like people in Syria. My family has never been ripped away from me. I have never experienced living in a natural disaster. But now, the world has opened up my eyes to how fucked we are. By people who were put into my life and by my own natural curiosity.
So I'm a little late. But I am never too late. Fuck you and fuck that. It is never too late. I can push myself into a deep dark hole of there's too much to learn and I can't get started now. I can. And I will.
You can't wait until it's too late to do something. You can't wait until you're pregnant to get on birth control. You can't stop driving drunk until you hit someone. You can't stop doing heroine until you die. You can't wait to say words to someone until they have already moved on. Don't be that person. It is not too late. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE. DON'T WAIT.

"It's like, it's like your rib cage is a jail cell, holding all that love in. So, I want you to take your fist, take your fist, and grab your heart and hold it in the air, hold that love in the air and open your fingers, one at a time if you need to, and let that love out. " #loveart

I don't think I have ever felt as at home as as I do here. I think back on all of the cities, the apartments and places I have lived. I used come back from California wishing that I lived there. This time I came back craving these mountains and this awesome,alive community. Home is where your heart is. Mine really is here. #colorado #grassaintgreener #wineaintsweeter #welcomehomehunny
Life, out of the depths, will clarify things for you only if you wish to see your challenges as an opportunity of growth. Sometimes we need rain. #itstimetogrowtoday

The Hollywood shows were amazing. Unfortunately there was a threat in the middle of the first show that had my heart in my throat. The interesting thing as I reflect was that my fear was actually for @bobweir And @deadandcompany . And my fellow neighbors. I truly felt it for my life last. These lessons are learned through the message of this music. Despite it all, the energy from this crowd was peaceful and alive. I am so thankful for finding this music and for my two friends who helped me get there. #pleasespreadpeace #wavethatflagwaveitwideandhigh #grateful ✌️
I finally made it home #homeiswherethedeadis #grateful
