Hello everyone! IAMEVE is playing a special free event in LA that will also be live broadcast on the internet around the world. Here is the info! Would love for you to share with everyone and come if you can! ♥ ♥
"It is only in sorrow bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it."
From the West to the East and everywhere in between, lots of love is being sent to all of you braving the storm. I can feel NYC dancing and celebrating despite everything.
All week I have felt it rippling across the continent, so I felt compelled to put together a mesh pot of Stormy Quotes, Music, and even a childhood movie favorite ;)
Sending you all much love and pixie dust! To be clear - I am deeply thinking of, loving, and praying for everyone on the east coast. All of my family is there and we are all dealing with the impact of the hurricane, as are the majority of my dearest friends. I am deeply present to personal trauma and this is intended to bring some amount of light and love for everyone, for whatever that is worth.

"Remember, the storm is a good opportunity for the pine and the cypress to show their strength and their stability." ~ Ho Chi Minh
"Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them?" ~ Rose Kennedy
I was watching a video on Super String Theory last week, when I heard the news that a new Planet with Four Suns was discovered 5000 light years away (link below). It dawned on me how fascinating the universe is, and how interesting it is, that as human beings grow past childhood we obsess over being able to prove ourselves. From science to religion to our individual sensory perception, we endlessly wrestle to prove that our view is the right one because it is what WE know and experience: be it with our eyes, our ears, our minds, or our souls.
It seems to me that time and time again, we continue to discover things that once were invisible and impossible.. I think magic is to surrender to the unknown and to be open to surprise; to look at the universe and know that at that very moment, you and everything in it is changing; to lock eyes with the one you love, thinking “how familiar”, while we are constantly adapting and regenerating into new beings…. When we shift our perspective, we realize that everything is always changing, is always new, and always full of mystery and magic. What would life be like if we tried to live every day with the pure sight of a child: present to magic, expecting surprises, full of limitless abundance and possibilities?
In other worldly news: We now have a Limited Edition hard copy of “The Everything Nothing: Act 1” in hand and available to order. As you know, the EP is an introduction to the song cycle of the full length record, which will release in Spring 2013.
The first 250 Limited Edition copies sold online will be signed and numbered.
We have a change of plans with the releases for songs on The Everything Nothing and hope for your blessing and patience!
Actual date TBA - but the official release of The Everything Nothing: Act 1 will launch through cyberspace fall 2012. It will include:
1. Throw Me A Line 2. Another Day 3. Self Sabotage 4. When I Was Young
and a sneak preview of ACT 2 5. Temptress
We are working on videos for all the songs and as many of you know, we shot a film noir piece for Temptress in Kansas City with director Timothy Harvey. This will be released in the next month or so and can’t wait to share it with you!
Love begins when our old story ends. When one day the pain becomes unbearable and the pain of not changing is deeper than change itself. The script that unconsciously runs our life will have run its course and we will be ready to strip away that safety net, the old familiar habits, the self sabotage, and all the stories that keep us from soaring.
