Consent, Desire, & Inner Fire (a lyric music video)

I just released this new lyric music video for my song Consent. Many women have had experiences with men they actually really liked and cared about, who pushed or rushed us. I wrote this song as a musical dissertation for my future beloved.

Contact Improvisations, Sweaty NoThankYou Negotiations

As a sensitive human who prefers touch only by invitation, with people i resonate with on many levels, I have always been resistant to the concept of sweaty strange bodies in a room, rubbing all over each other.

Music video for my song “The Seer”

Here’s a music video I made for my song, “The Seer”.

I told them my trick, and I thought it would be nice to share it. The answer is simple – pen pals!! Find what stimulates you to do what you want to do. And do that. Good stuff!

Embody the Engima (poetry)

We are hot blooded creatures
of bone and electric potential.
We require exploration
like a thick skinned
forest.
Or a cavernous sea.
