Big thanks to Amy Correia and Steel City for tonight! This song is for the secret cynic in all of us, and for the beautiful brave artist tasked with always showing up no matter how loud the fear in our ears. <3

And the subject of this Feelings Friday is…. pain.
We feel pain for a reason. To show us our limitations. To protect us from causing permanent damage. To inform us of what we are not ready for. To tell us to slow down and pay attention. To relieve us from the illusion of control. To strengthen our patience, humility, compassion.
Reminder to be patient and gentle with ourselves and our pain
Love to the men.
Featuring special guest Ted Winslow! <3
