Walking into a Dream

Leave a comment Standard

There it is…
In the cold night
An old breath blown out
This night is not dead
Dreams glimmer in the sky
a moment packed full of information
full of words for a poets thrill
Constellations, like a roadmap from dream to dream
Draw the line with your minds eye
When will you bloom, oh beautiful soul
When will you come into your own?
When might you feel yourself?
When might the world finally see you?
Such transformations come with hardship
A long grueling journey across the seas
Your power will come, won’t it?
If you just follow your north star
Let it guide you in the night
When the unknown blinds you with uncertainty 
Will you keep your crown bright?
Such a dreamer pulling the pieces together
Don’t forget to breathe
For all the footsteps in the snow count
As much as the last one
When walking into a dream

What Color is your Dream?

Leave a comment Standard

this dream I don’t dream anymore
has it fell upon my feet?
From the sky to the floor…
The dream is here as I walk in the street

What death made this possible?
The grief of an ending
But this is just the beginning
My world is changing
The mountains are getting bigger
I am alive, I am stronger
Navigating this wild life

In my heart I feel something extraordinary
Boredom washes away from my skin
As the energy of forgiveness sinks in
I stare out the eyes, for I am not the body
Just an old creative soul wanting to entertain everybody

Have you stood still to feel yourself present?
Have you locked in your heart?
Have you made such a descent?
That a smile in the day is promising

What dream is yours
What to experience, what to explore
like a creator out there, are you not one?
What world would you paint for yourself
Go on and paint it
What color is your dream?
Aren’t you dreaming in color?

Surfing a Dream

Leave a comment Standard

I’m tired of singing in my head
I know that this won’t get me anywhere
It is time to sing instead
the judgment I must not care

this mountain is a beast
I’m out here in the west, 
but grew up in the east
I’m a man on a mission, man on a quest

love me for me, let me be free
I’ve just always had a big dream
the road and the music
one day you will see

the artist in me, I do believe
All I want is to ride my own wave
I want to the feel the energy
Experiencing my dream during the day

the Simplicity of the PAST

Leave a comment Standard

There once was a time before the internet, 1,000 + TV channels and cell phones. It was a time of simplicity. It was a time of riding your bike in the autumn leaves, climbing trees, playing hockey and listening to music. This was my childhood. 

As a child I remember quite often listening to rock n roll. That was it? Yup, that was it. I recall many times just sitting on the floor or running around the house to the music that blasted out of the stereo speakers; Van Halen, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Whitesnake, etc

I have a love / hate relationship with technology. I love it, I need it, but I do miss the times when you could just sit in the same room with other people listening to music instead of staring at screens. I love how social media can help connect you with others and help with spreading a message, but it can also be incredibly time wasting.

I remember a short time period where we didn’t have to dial the area code, there were no cell phones to text people you were going to be late and facebook did not exist. I miss those times and that is one reason why we started to RV full time. We wanted to spend more time outdoors and having adventures. To be real though, we have to maintain a balance. To earn money, I have to be at the computer helping others with English or editing videos and writing blogs. I guess it goes with anything life – balance is key.

Do you remember a time when things were just more simple? How do you keep a balance of technology and staying away from screens?

Look in the Mirror

Leave a comment Standard

this letter i need to write

and this fight is a fight

sit down you know I’m right

you hesitated, so now you feel the bite

Snap out of the denial 

Years can turn easy on the downward spiral

the hope you may have left

Go ahead and flush it down the toilet

Your last run starts now

It begins with knowing how

to stay the course despite heavy winds

the only sin are the cracks you fall through in your mind

Stay strong and you will be fine

line after line, the right words will come

the effort will fall when this world is aligned to the sun

No longer a victim when you look in the mirror

Accepting my own failure

Accepting my own right to move on

I feel like there was a part of me that knew this all along…

Learning on the fly

Leave a comment Standard

We are in love with Tucson! The weather is great here. Of course it isn’t summer right now and the temperature can get pretty high then, but the humidity is so low here. I loved being near the beach when we were staying at a RV park in New Jersey, but I couldn’t stand the humidity there. To be honest, dessert vegetation is not my favorite, but with the combination of the mountains and great weather, it can be overlooked. Something I just found out was that Tucson is one of the most bike friendly cities in the U.S. That is one thing I do miss when we lived in Chicago. I really enjoyed biking throughout the city. I love the freedom that comes along with biking.

Traveling full-time and working on our business has been an on-the-fly learning experience. In the outskirts of Chicago we worked at yoga studios and spiritual shops. There were parts about it we liked and of course parts of it that we didn’t. We eventually shifted to just focusing on workshops and have not found much success in doing that. I think what we are going to do now is put all of our energy into YouTube. While for us YouTube is primarily a place for us to upload adventure videos, but we can also add yoga and meditation videos. I also have a podcast I just started that I can use to discuss topics in spirituality. 

We have about 2.5 weeks until we leave Tuscon, but there is still a lot we want to see here. After Arizona we will be heading to southern California. I am excited to continue to have warm weather despite us heading into winter. I have been getting the urge to practice vocals more and more and to my surprise our next RV Park has a room that I can use to practice. This is awesome, because we will most likely be there for about three months.

So we are just going to continue exploring, putting all of our energy into YouTube and I am going to be practicing singing as much as I can. I have always wanted to learn to sing and I can’t put it off any longer. I really want to get better so I can do some covers on YouTube and then eventually create original content. Like anything, I just got to take it day by day. 🙂

Sixth Layer

Leave a comment Standard

Do you feel your purpose burning in your heart?
Won’t you sing your heart out?
Won’t you speak your mind?
Won’t you release control?
Won’t you ditch perfection and be real?
All the plans in the world won’t compare to the moment
The stars crave the Earth
These dreams are not dead
I have endless words that I’d hope would hit home
I want to move to the energy
I want to destroy limitation
I want to feel the waves rolling inside of me

Do you crave an experience like I do?
Chain after chain, let’s break free
Think back to when you saw the sixth layer
When you saw the dream
When you lit up like a star
And said this is what I shall become
The journey to this picture
The agony and heartache 
Let it fly out like nobody is listening 
Let the whole world hear you scream
The dream inside will come alive
Live it so you can smile when you die
To feel satisfied, to know you were really alive
