And then, while googling to find the perfect word, opposite of the word “magnify”, I lost my post. Bahh…
But you know what, these things happen. The universe switched it up on me. Im alright with that. And I just renamed my blog something about a Nashtache. I think im on to something!
I didnt want to write a long blog anyhow, but man, it was shaping up to be a good one. Oh well….
At any rate, March might be “The Best Month Ever”
Ive had one hell of a March.
Rather than being exhausted, I am feeling filled to the brim with love, energy, inspiration, smiles, hugs, laughter and excitment. Doing whatever, wherever, however…cause you know what? It doesnt matter!!!!! None of it. Nada.
Im back in Nashville for some more songwriting. I had a hard time leaving home, I felt like a mouse stuck in one of those sticky traps. Home likes to wrap itself around me and love me up…and the sun has been basking me a darker shade of tan. My friend just had her baby, the waves have been good. The light has shifted, we gained an hour. Hard to leave indeed, but I do, times two, appreciate the travel, the experience, and this opportunity which life has granted me.
I have quite the collection of songs brewing. I’m kind of in “Awe” as to how I have aquired them. Seems like a couple months ago I was blank. No inspiration, no drive, no feeling, no excitement. But now…SHizaaa MInelli. I am back. And, I am fired up. All i did was go about what I wanted to be doing, surfing, yogaing, cooking, smokin.. weeeee!, painting, cleaning, hanging with my mom, laughing a whole lot, dusting off my awsomesness and shazamm…I wrote a bunch of songs in there somewhere. I love when that happens.
Makes me happy too, cause that means they are au naturale. I didnt even feel it. They just came. “Poof! Hi, Im a song, im looking for TP, is that you? Sign here please _____xx”
Ive taken a lot of random photos to document the most awesome March of my life.
Hope you enjoy the photos, as much as i enjoyed capturing them :)
This may be one of the first songs Ive ever written that has no men/relationship/feelings of emotions tied to love and men, etc… as the inspiration behind it (maybe I’m growing up finally!!!!!…boringgggg).
This song is all about recognizing the beauty and potential in this world. And preserving it for our future generations to come. Change is as easy as having a thought. All you have to do is start.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”—
Our Deepest Fear

Today I woke up, made my usual oatmeal and drank some delicious coffee, sat down at the computer to read The Huffington Post as usual, and then I paused. I started to think about what I actually HAD to do today - there wasn’t really much I could think of. Last week I was busy as hell and this week…
“In my world, this is one of the highly anticipated albums of 2010
