about

Hearth.

It was a warm night on the new moon in July. My dear friend Summit (Numatik music) and I called in our close friends to gather. Among us were poets, artists, musicians, elders, earth whisperers, an orchestra of crickets and the Appalachian mountain range. In gratitude, I sang and they listened. Songs that have been present in me for years and some that were just written, poured out through the night. Straight takes, with rickety guitar strings tuning in and out, the stories unraveled. I am so grateful to all the people there that night, for their essence lives in these raw tracks. I found home with you in that living room.

Thank you all for listening.

Track Name: Shine
I don't want to have to grow old
to think about all the things
I didn't do
and regret so

I'm going to help you smile today
help you forget everything
you've been silently screaming

'cause this world
isn't small enough
to make us all believe
the same thing
wear those shoes
and watch through
those windows
your heads above the clouds
it may be sunny there
but sometimes
the dark knows how to
shine.

Listen
her scars are too deep
their words are too weak
the world seems to be
slowing down than stopping.
we're all jaded
she thinks
can't breathe normally
so far from where she used to be.

'cause this world
isn't small enough
to make us all believe
the same thing
wear those shoes
and watch through
those windows
your heads above the clouds
it may be sunny there
but sometimes
the dark knows how to
shine.
Track Name: Remember Roots
Questions
pour down
but there's no way
to reverse the rain.

And after the storm
feels so far
away from now.

My temple
feels torn.
Forgive me body,
I will honor you
in this storm.

I'll honor you in this storm.


So I bathe

In the moons rays

the sunlight

traveling through space.

And the ocean

in my veins

are rushing tides

alive

awake.



Remember roots, beloved.
Remember roots, beloved.
Remember.

I am a woman.
I am strong.
With my mothers vines,
and my fathers light.

Skinny dipping sisters
in the dark waters
illuminating each pool
with grace.

And as we sit in circle
we remember
all those that walked before,
our ancestors.

Remember roots, beloved.


Remember roots, beloved.

Remember.


Remember roots,



beloved.


Remember roots, beloved.

Remember.



And as our roots
they grow deeper
our branches they grow
higher.

As our roots
they grow deeper
our branches
they grow
higher.

higher.


Remember

roots, beloved.


Remember roots, beloved.

Remember.

Remember roots


beloved.



Remember roots, beloved.



Remember.
Track Name: Free
Oh we're so tired
this room perspires
incessantly.

A lack of a desire
to subdue fear
that sets us free.

Threads and threads of stories
his story wilting with the flowers
her story hidden in the bowers.
We blame our hands
for being cowards
second arrows tower
over.

Kisses like
a thousand paper cuts

grow colder,
faces must
grow older,
minds adjust,

we're bolder.


Maybe we
we can be
free.


A breath, a breath in
an exhale
erase to help heal
the chaos that veils
all of our worlds
oh the islands on this island
they yearn,
they yearn to be
bridged.



Maybe we
we can be
free.
Track Name: Still Love
Traces
traces of us
in the places my body
used to take up
with you.

Now, I have yet
to un-numb.
It's taking me long
to ease away from
the lives we lived
in each other.

So I, I've
got to surf thee waves
to stand ashore again,
I hope you've done
the same.

So flow.
Love her,
my love.
Take up new spaces.
Our lost love
is still love.
We're still love.
Still love.

Although we are still
you are moving forward
and I am moving forward
further away.

Take care of
our stories now.
We're just stories now
just stories now.
These places are
no longer ours.

So flow.
Love her,
my love.
Take up new spaces.
Our lost love
is still love.
We're still love.
Still love.
Track Name: When
Have you seen the pain
through the screen?
Our beings are screaming
listen. Our seas have seen
too much of our shores
roaring into every corner
of every home. Like
a military drone.
For we create missiles
as we create the thunder
of our rising sea. A
war up to our knees.
Flooded in humanity with
blood on our discrepancies.
When will we be free?

When will we be free,
when will we be free?
When we make
the choices that defy greed.
When we feed only when we need.
When we see that we are
community.

Can we
can we be the change?
release compassion here,
can we be free
from fear?
so love,
love with all you have,
we know that
you are suffering.
Can we be here
now?

When will we be free,
when will we be free?
When we make
the choices that defy greed.
When we feed only when we need.
When we see that we are
born free.
Track Name: Rise Warrior
Is this the season
when I bloom?
How will I
ever stay
balanced when
my fingers weave
through you like moons
orbiting high
yet so grounding?

I am a blind contour
of these mountains,
my skin is made
from the sea,
my eyes are stars
by the billion,
and here I only see
you and me.

I feel my frame now
she is fragile,
but only through
her lens.
but this vulnerability
is strength now
and the only thing
that she needs


is the blind contour
of these mountains,
and the skin that’s made
from the sea,
and those eyes of stars
by the billion,
everything, everything
everything she needs
is right here.

Rise oh Warrior,
you are everything.
Rise oh Lover,
unravel perception
unravel perception x2

Rise oh Warrior,
you are everything.
Rise oh Lover,
unravel purposefully.

Is this the season
when I bloom?
Track Name: Aqui Estamos
Born with stride
born with magic
born with light
we still have it

Dressed in skin
blood and marrow
we are love, we are love
beyond the shallow

We are stories of our shadows
we are stories of our light
we are stories of our travels
across severed land of plight
we are stories of each other

Nacemos libres
nacemos magicos
nacemos con luce
a un nos queda

Vestidos de piel
sangre y hueso
somos amor, somos amor
un amor profundo

Historias de nuestras sombras
historias de nuestra luce
historias de nuestros viajes
tras las tierras partidas
Tu eres mi historia
y yo soy tu historia
