Take a 7-Minute Breather!

“There are so many reasons to be happy. There are so many reasons to give thanks. There are so many reasons to be happy, to give praise.” ~Breathing

The sun is shining through my window, reflecting sparkly light on the snow-covered earth. This Michigan winter has humbled me, and brought me back to a place of gratitude for the simple joys of life, like my ability to breathe and smile (and be warm) in this moment.

I am excited to share this video of my song Breathing with you, from my Greyhound Bus Tour album. The smiles and community represented in it are gentle reminders for me that when I slow down and pay attention to my breath, I become fully present with those around me and I am able to live and act from a place of love and strength. I hope that this video may also water positive seeds in you; of hope, happiness, and confidence in your path.

The video was filmed and produced by visual artist Nathan Meadows. He and his camera accompanied me on many travels and performances; from the D. Blair Theatre in Detroit, to the Earthwork Farm in Lake City, Michigan, to the rocky shores of Muir Beach, California. I am grateful for the skills and energy he has shared to give this song its new visual dimension.

There are so many reasons to be happy in this moment! I invite you to take a 7-minute pause from your day, breathe, smile, and take refuge in your capacity to love.

At least it will give you a nice reminder of what summer weather looks like!

Breathing with you,
