StarsThey glisten in the heavens,
Watching over our lives.
They know more than us,
For they live in the skies.
All knowledge they possess,
For they have seen for centuries.
Our times pass by in the blink of an eye,
They will ignore our pleasantries.
White sparkles like no other,
Filled with natural beauty.
The midnight navy with sweet décor,
This really is the world we see.
Try to imagine a normal day,
We must shine and here remain.
Hello stars of Orion's belt,
Remember our light is never the same.
We know more of love than you do,
Trust the skies of the night who observe.
That person is not right to ask for proof,
For you they do not deserve.
Everything can be explained,
When you look up at the skies.
Your prayers will be answered,
As long as it goes to Him on high.
The daydreamClose my eyes and see your face,
Blink and know there's not a space,
Between you and me,
Soon the world will see,
It's not as impossible as it could be.
In a world of our own,
Seeds of hope can be sown,
The thought of knowing, living,
Being together, dancing, singing.
Between your toes, the feeling of sand,
Walking on a beach.
Suddenly falling, not like before,
You know me, and have opened my heart's store.
We dream, the daydream.
HappinessHappiness tastes like oranges,
Freshly growing on a tree.
It smells like candy floss,
At the fair during the night,
It looks like the sun,
During that first summer dawn.
Sounds like butterflies wings,
Beating softly in the wind.
The glow in your stomach,
When you see that person.
The giggle you get,
When joking with friends.
The grin and smile,
After a hug from your mum.
The cold fresh air,
Inhaled on a foggy morning.
My best friendMad as a hatter
Twice as funny
Filled with chatter
Calls me hunny
Brown hair flops
Over his head
Dear candy pops
A traveller at heart,
Wants to go to New York
Never too far apart
I’ll go a good sport
Not alone as a friend
But more than just me
I hope not the end
When we go to uni
Travel Documents pt.1This seemed a fairly easy way to keep those of you that are interested up to speed with things in China while not filling up the inboxes of everyone else! haha
So Sunday morning, after arriving the previous night from 4 consecutive gigs in other states, I made it to at the tiny airport in my home city of Shreveport LA to find that (of course) it was overbooked! This was a wonderful start to my already convoluted journey to my final destination – Chengdu, Sichuan, China – that involved 4 flights, 4 bus rides, and countless taxis and subway exchanges.
Well I rescheduled first leg of the trip within enough time to make my second flight out of Atlanta, GA without messing up any of my other flights...miraculous!
After a quick (and I mean very quick) layover, I boarded my first ever double-decker flight!
The routing of these flights, by the way, made absolutely NO sense whatsoever lol I went from Shreveport,
Travel Documents pt.2Well they certainly like to keep you on your toes here!
I woke up this morning in Shenzhen to a message that said to be packed and ready to leave (in TWO HOURS!) back to Hong Kong haha. Now that the whole band is together, we need to leave mainland China and have our tourist visas converted to working visas.
I suppose now would be a good time to introduce you to the band members!
From left to right, we have: Nuno (Bass) from Portugal, Me!, Madelin (Vocals) from Cuba, Evans (Vocals) from Canada, Paris (Vocals) from the US, Claudio (Guitar) from Italy, and Keith (Drums) from South Africa!
So you can tell by now that we're a bit diverse! haha This is part of the reason why the visa process took so long! China recently changed its policy regarding giving visas to citizens of "developing countries." For that reason, Madelin and Keith were both turned away at the airport and sent back to Cuba and South Africa and told
Relatively Newsworthy...So that's kind of cool
It's at least a milestone, as I will be putting my art (my music) out there for probably one of the largest audiences I've ever had! I don't typically get antsy before a show, but I have a feeling that tonight, Imma be gettin' them tingles lol
It's also my genuine hope that within a few weeks, I'll have some ACTUAL news to share with you. Some things that are definitely still in the works...but if they go through, I might need to learn some Mandarin
See you guys!
Always...Always in autumn,

in my hair...
and golden trees...
as they please -
do not soar -
they hover -
stock-still in time,
bereft of rhyme -
oh where is
in breaking dawn...
Dim lit cafes
burning in red
as singers say...
to that fire...
Travel Documents pt.3Thursday, we left for Hong Kong to have our collective visas converted to work visas. Everything necessary for a two-day venture was packed in just my backpack, and I was fortunately able to leave my bulky gear and luggage at the hotel in Shenzhen! But of course, the visa process marks the return of the infamous Crazy Visa Lady! lol so naturally, we were running everywhere.
To make things more interesting,
Since no one had prepared us for needing additional visa pictures, we were ushered to a photo booth in the train station and made to take them there while we were waiting to hop from one train to the next! Never a dull moment with these guys haha
When we arrived in HK…
It was evident that we were staying at the same hotel I mentioned pre
