I’m having trouble living with my whole heart
This is old hat
It’s an old art
It’s dividing who I am and what I stand for
Trying to find myself a semblance of an answer

I just wanna be one

December 2015 | i belong

i belong
At a belated Thanksgiving Dinner at my family’s friends’ home in New Jersey, the hostess – my mom’s friend – made the unorthodox choice of asking each guest at the table (many of whom had just met) to reflect on their personal internal growth over the year 2015. After the initial nervousness, everyone opened up.

For me, this year was the first time since I was a child where I began to feel my own barriers and defenses melt away in favor of a firm, clear vision of myself in this world – that who I wanted to be, could be, and would be, lays right in front of me for the taking. There is no one who can stop me except myself.

It’s a lonely world, but I am grateful to hang on to my immutable dreams and the rare, precious relationships where I feel seen and connected.

This is the December 2015 edition of INNER LIFE.

November 2015 | A woman is alive…


In July 2012, I began sharing a monthly playlist featuring my own discoveries, favorites, and occasionally demos with a few dozen friends. Over time, it’s become a method for me to create narrative using the music that compels me as the voice of my subconscious, in order to reflect, make sense of my feelings and move forward. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share it publicly through Play Too Much, and I hope it holds value for you as well. This is the November 2015 edition of INNER LIFE.
