tonight, @erichutchinson plays his 50th state. that's an insane milestone. i'm so stoked that i've been able to come along for the final five states on this #unchartedterritory2017 run, and wicked excited and honored that i get to document the show tonight. let's do this!
some #content for your wednesday :: @skoutoutloud show TOMORROW at @rockwoodmusichall at 9! we can ask @cgladney4 to recreate this moment
fun news to make up for it being monday- @SkoutOutLoud are playing @RockwoodNYC (aka our fav venue in the city) this thurs 9/21 at 9pm! old songs, new songs, and a 100% chance of connor sharing at least one bad pun.
hi @skoutoutloud is playing @rockwoodmusichall next Thursday 9/21 at 9, and it'll be a grand ol' time so come hang. i'll bring my brand new library card, which is 'where the wild things are' themed, so if you come to the show you get to see that as a bonus. i see no downsides here
i took this photo standing on a glacier on mt. denali in alaska, which was one of the coolest things i've ever done (literally...i was wearing vans that day) #tbt
today is world suicide prevention day. today is heavy + light, loss + hope, the contrasts of life called into sharp relief. today i miss people who left too soon, today questions without answers echo in my mind, and i know i'm not alone in that. and i know there are people for whom the decision to stay is a choice + a fight repeated. if life feels like too much --
if you are struggling, if you are tired, if you feel too much or if you feel numb: please stay. to be surprised. stay for second + third + tenth chances. stay for the starting over. for the wonder + awe on the way that you never dreamed you'd experience. stay because your strength is deeper than you know. because it's ok + strong + courageous to ask for help when you need it, ok to say that you're struggling or that things are not ok. stay because you're not alone. we're here with you, in darkness + in light. .
you are worthy of love and belonging. you have worth just as you are, messy parts + ragged edges + unfinished storylines included. .
there is no such thing as an unimportant person or an unimportant life. you matter + your story matters. you are irreplaceable.
pain is real, but hope + help are very real things, too. love, recovery, better days. they are all real, and all worth fighting for. you are worth fighting for.
it is never too late for change. life is heavy + light + everything in between, and you deserve to be here for all of it.
(that moment you find out your boss is a vampire...?) happy birthday @erichutchinson! thanks for being an exceptional mentor, boss, and friend. also, thank you for always asking if i want coffee during work sessions, and not getting annoyed that i invariably say yes, even though i’m probably responsible for drinking several bags' worth of your coffee beans on my own. most importantly: thank you for your constant support this year, and for being the type of person who stands up for what they believe in, looks out for others, and lives with compassion and empathy. you’re wicked awesome. enjoy your bday! (p.s. i went with the halloween show photo bc this is the only photo of us that i could find, sorry!)
#tbt to me taking a picture of @erichutchinson taking a picture of me in front of Sioux Falls. i didn't know what to do with my face bc i'm bad at being the subject of a photo so i just hid behind my camera and took more photos. also the waterfall sound in the video is nice #unchartedterritory2017
last two shows at @bluenotehawaii with @erichutchinson + the Believers are tonight! gonna get funky with the footage. but first, poke, a walk, and a nap. but not on the beach. because i did that by accident yesterday and now i could be red lobster's mascot without needing the costume
