had a wicked good time on set at the @erichutchinson + the believers photo shoot today!
styling: @jillbream + @beematee
i filmed @erichutchinson + the believers in the studio while they recorded modern happiness, and the first video is out today! it’s my first director’s credit on an “official” music video which is pretty cool, yet as of this morning that suddenly has me feeling wicked nervous...? :: anyway vid is on Patreon.com/EricHutchinson (and will be on YouTube in the near future)
so stoked for a weekend full of promo, photos/videos, and other shenanigans with some of my favorite people, aka #erichutchinsonandthebelievers! #modernhappiness2018 here we comeeeee

@julienrbaker was wicked awesome last night on @colbertlateshow! goosebumps. "turn off the lights" is one of my favorite tracks off her latest record, and i loved this performance. (link in bio for ya) :: photo is a #tbt to Julien’s @brooklynsteel show in april
our clocks + calendars flow into the new year, light as air + i envy their ability to carry nothing more than the present with them. for us the past is not so easily shed. we bring with us a mess of experience + emotion + memory, the building blocks of the paradoxes we all hold within us. .
we all live with questions + scars + things that haunt us. we struggle to let go, or we tire of holding on. .
2017 felt much more heavy than light, at least to me. but life is contrast. and the contrast to the deep heaviness of this year was something beautiful: seeing how powerful it is when people show up for each other.
if this year felt heavy, you’re not alone. if you felt despair, or depression, or anxiety, or if the prospect of another 365 days to get through seems daunting, you’re not alone. please believe + know this:
it is possible to be brave + broken + hopeful + fearful all at once. to have hearts gentle + unusual + wild. there is light, and there is hope. always hope.
there is no such thing as an unimportant person or an unimportant life. you matter + your story matters. you are irreplaceable. we can take this year one day at a time, you + me. we can show up for each other, because people need other people. and you are not alone.
