Another lunar cycle. Wow, that flew by. Manidoo-Giizisoons (Little Spirit Moon), the longest and fullest moon of the year. This powerful moon is rich with opportunities to reflect on and release the past. I didn't intend for this particular song to be for this moon, but I see now how fitting it is.

 

These Full Moon Releases have been so healing, allowing me to integrate parts of my self that I have purposely left behind. I didn't know what to do with the shame, failure and longing, so I put it in a song and left it there. Ten years later, I am singing these words in a very different way. I'm older and I'm wiser. I know that defeat won't kill me, rejection hurts, but it's survivable and walking away is sometimes the greatest self-care I can offer myself.  

Today, I bring you "Home," which I wrote in 2011 with Karen Kosowski (who gets full credit for coming up with that gorgeous bridge).

Happy Full Moon, Friends! Baashkaakodin-Giizis (Freezing Moon) is doing her thing, having just completed the longest partial lunar eclipse in almost 600 over years!!! Mmm…big dreams, big thanks, big love and big release. What are we holding on to and what are letting go? 

 

Today, I offer my latest single “So Far Away,” a song I wrote back in 2014 with Karen Kosowski, who helped me negotiate long-distance love, home-sickness and postpartum.
