So for a variety of reasons I was feeling gunshy about this release. Maybe because the songs are so close to my heart. It feels very naked to put this one out. It is all me. My stories, my moments, my joy, and my pain. But a good friend gave me a talking to and just said GET OFF YOUR ASS. So I did - and here you go. Because I just want to get the songs out into the world - it's going to be a free / pay what you can sort of deal (until it's not - this is likely a limited time thing). Please still share or reblog since… this was a long time coming. a lot of hours and passion and tears and you name it went into it.
