The crisp London air tickles my nose…

I was asked from a dear friend of mine to share a writing piece for their story-telling class. The prompt was left pretty wide open, which I enjoyed. I put together a story from my travels in London that interwove my personal poetry and lyric writings. I adored putting this bittersweet piece together… The crisp…

Home Sweet Home…

After a seven month long journey across the states, Western Europe and Africa, I find myself lying on a bed in California.

Fixed – George Maple

“What’s to say, I’m in your main …under, try to stay afloat You try to leave, I find myself So naive, don’t go, even on the low” The warmth of Maples voice on this track gives me this feeling of being wrapped warmly in a lovers arm and covered in silk blankets to swaying my…
