Over the past few years of gypsy-living (bouncing from New York, to Minnesota, and California, from house-to-house), I’ve grown a lot, and I’ve also discovered a need to plant.  You CAN have roots and wings, dear one, but to truly grow you must sow yourself into something.   Our personal root-systems need to extend deep to allow our body/mind/souls to stretch upward, toward the sun and fill-out with awesome, leafy, green foliage and fruit.

“I am a tree… BE the tree… Ommmmm…”

Yes, I sound like a hippie, a nerd, a wise-ass, a {fill in the blank}, but it’s true!  I’ve come to the conclusion that the first place to plant is within yourself.  Because, (I know you know this), “Wherever you go, there you are.”  There is no running from yourself.  Sure, you can try to get distracted, but at the end of the day, you’re still you.  Better quickly come to accept the fact that you’re worth loving, and you deserve to be happy.  The second place to plant could be in something you believe in, something you feel passionate about, or an actual, physical place.  For me, I discovered I need a home-base.  From there, I can travel all I want, or go to an important secondary location for a period of time, but having a place to call home is, indeed, important – at least to my psyche.  I don’t know as if I’ve found the exact formula yet, and I don’t know how it will all work out in the end, but this is my journey… Join Native Gypsy, Brooke, and I on this messy, crazy ride!

I’m grateful to have a unique and awesome family, many wonderful friends, a dog who accompanies me on my travels, and a gorgeous, Arabian horse who waits, patiently (sometimes lazily) grazing back on the farm.  I currently reside in Los Angeles, California, making music and entertainment – and generally lapping up farmers markets and thrift stores, hiking, and cooking.  My hometown back in Minnesota beckons to me often.  Especially during warm, summer months.  The balance between a West Coast, creative career and a Midwestern, farm-life is something I have yet to master, but it’s a day-dream I’d like to call my reality.
