Shit got real yesterday. I dropped some coin on this beautiful studio mic because it’s time. . It’s time to set up a vocal booth in my 6 year old sons closet. . I’ve always travelled to fancy studios in big cities to write and record my music. I’ve never written music with the sounds of my life and the love of family just on the other side of the vocal booth. . It’s time to allow the two things in my life that bring me the most joy to collide, intertwine and inspire one another. I’m home.
On your pale freckled wet skin I traced Orion’s Belt. . .
#intraining . . This is my son, E. Minutes after I gave birth to him I looked at his squishy little face and said “you’re going to be my little musician.” I could tell. I already knew him so well. I was right. . .
You have a voice. #useit #vote 🖤
“If you are cold, don’t bitch. It means you are alive.” -Me to myself a few weeks after I had a cancerous tumor removed from my bladder.
In the truth of morning. . Like stars that blink and fade as daylight breaks over the landscape. . They are still there, though not seen. . Like them, truth is quiet but not subtle. . Open your eyes. Feel into the sacred knowing.
I wanted to be open with you. . To tell you how much I love and hate you all at once. I wanted to tell you how broken you seem and how that has broken me. But I know you. You’d melt under the heat of those words. . And after a moment, after I saw you naked in that light, There you were again. . Spirit muted. Unchanging. Unable. Evolving is for others. You are you. I am me. We are ok like this. . I accept. . #nataliewalkerpoetry
Who am I?
It is amazing to me, that not by chance, I pulled these cards for my next musical endeavor. . Many years of not trusting myself to do the work. Many years of not feeling like I am enough or worthy of being seen without a label, publicist or publishing deal. . I can say that I am slowly starting to step into my power as a woman and an artist. I am starting to accept the darkness that comes with the light. I am brave now. Sometimes fearful but ready to be brave. . The first card was pulled after I asked the question “what card represents the future of my next musical project?” The meaning of this card brought me to tears. . We have to give ourselves permission to be great. To be a warrior. . The second card pulled was after I asked “what should my next song be inspired by?” Naturally, this is the card my daughter pulled for me last week. My life’s purpose card. . Of course I should write about that. What a perfect way to start down a new path in my music career.
