People say you need plenty of clouds in your life if you want a beautiful sunset in the end. But back when I was dying, I didn't think there'd be enough sunshine to light up all the clouds. Now I know I'll have enough sunlight for the most dazzling sunset imaginable. And I hope other people will enjoy it too! :)
Wishing you a beautiful…Continue
It’s easy to do bad things if you want to, there is no challenge in that. It may be wrong to break the law, or to go against the unspoken laws of human morality, but it’s not hard to do. Anyone can make the world worse in a second, but there is no accomplishment in breaking things.
In fact, evil has become, I’m sad to say, strangely commonplace. Lost people are trying to do something more horrific than the last, in the hope of being remembered for it. In fact they are simply…Continue
One of the goals I set myself this year was to get back to singing, get more confident at it, and hopefully improve too...it's lots of fun along the way :)

Let it fall to the ground
I know it hurts
It is a struggle to let it go
To lose what you care for so much
But there is no real loss
Just the illusion that what escapes is you
And you can never be gone
For you are eternal
Nothing has any power over you except you
But there is no control to be had really
To what is to be
And in this…Continue

Hey so a couple summers ago my buddy Nate invited me to San Mateo to try Mamey Sapote and I was just getting really into running and 811 and I decided to run there from my home 12.6 miles away. It was summer time and it was awesome.
On the way, I foraged for loquats, grapes, plums, and berries. When I arrived he shared the delicious mamey and some mangos, bananas, and good water. And then I made my way home and foraged some more ending up at a grocery store and buying some…Continue
Ripe banana spotting!
Raise Them Up With Love
Love thy neighbour as thyself ain’t always plain to do
To start with maybe you don’t have enough love just for you
And maybe they’re a selfish man, an enemy within the gates
But that’s just why we need to help them or we’ll seal all our fates
When the darkness comes you need a light but the bulbs’ve all blown away
You light a match and try to see but the wind…Continue
When my band was planning on going on tour for a month overseas, I was immediately concerned with one pressing question: how will I continue to eat 80/10/10---especially without really any opportunity to exercise? This, combined with the fact that my health was declining was a difficult question to answer. I discussed it with my bandmates and was met with great resistance. I was told that they would not be very accommodating to this lifestyle---which I understood and in an effort to…Continue
My acne will go down on my face if I don't touch it, but my chest looks so gross. I feel shy and gross a lot because of it and tend to cover up my chest area. But as it gets closer to summer, the more I want to wear lighter tops. The thing is, I have been raw for a while now. Fully raw most days. (having mostly fruit and veggies and pratically no nuts!)
WHAT DO I DO!!!
I have been having my own little raw revelation these past few months. I think you know that I have long suffered from an eating disorder. When I first started eating 811 I felt such a renewed connection with my food and very empowered by feeding my body such healing foods. I still had a lot of emotional healing to deal with though, so when things got tough I still restricted my calories.
Until very recently (march this year), I never understood, or…Continue

Hope everyone has had a lovely week :)
I wrote this song today and thought I'd share. I don't have a piano/keyboard at the moment, or any proper singers on hand sadly, so just me singing! ;) I've put the lyrics below.
(My webcam is not very good so you have to turn the volume right up to hear, sorry! And it also goes out of sync, but nevermind!! :D )
