Looking Back and Looking Forward

since the crush me ep, i’ve visited a lot of wheres. i typed them out just now, which took longer than i thought, but in retrospect it took much longer (22 months) to see them all in person. some wheres we drove to — in vans, buses & regular cars — some we flew to, some we took trains to & some places we reached by boat, which i personally find kind of scary but i’ve spent my adult life working on being less scared of things, so boats is just part of the program

what a wonderful and surprising journey. and you all made it possible. thank you for that

it can be overwhelming to consider all of the life going on in the world at every moment & in every corner. but it can be calming too if you pretend you’re in outer space and can’t see the details too clearly

the rest of the year i’ll be finishing up new music & i’m so so so excited for you to hear it. more on that soon

out of all the everys, we get to choose a few somes
it’s ok to be picky
