Mirror 10:15
you are resounding thunder you are waterfalls you are crystal floating as a dream in blankets of stargazers you will never know you are acres of blackberrys just wants to grow wants to grow wants to grow wants to grow wants to grow you are wind in autumn you are the sea with fog you are anciently growing you are blue feather in the sun dolphins moonlit thien liesson you are a thousand years in past and future ghost avalon wants to grow wants to grow wants to grow wants to grow
Shadow 09:39
there is a place where all of the people going to and they gonna die they lay themselves in an all black coffin and float away away away like the crows that caw at my window like the feathers that they drop at my door i wake me up and i often wander walking down to the river bank shore i look for her by the banks of that river among the rocks and the moss and the fern i hear her voice on the sunshine whispers but i see not her fairy winged form yes, im in love with a witch from the meadow like a star that has fallen in the night like the wind in the treetop rustle but i just find her shadow shadow shadow shadow shadow i sit me down in the dirt by the water i place my hand in its delicate stream the waters cold and the ripples that shimmer calling forth so what does it mean? is it me??
Locket 06:45
Moonlit 09:12
in the distant light of moonshine the waves that come get so stoned and then I see you you are glowing you are driftwood in you I see the wolf so silent and around you clouds drifting you were anciently a river you are now flowing towards the sea on the road to josaleighs in her canyon by the sea just on the road to josaleighs in a world different than this one I can see you here with me though in the mountains and the forests I know that you must now be I will see you in the morning you are a star inside my heart on the wind I can hear you breathing you are the dreamer and the call on the road..... in the past a lonesome drifter but the dragons now unfurled on a trail where once I knew you I'll steal your hourse your crown your pearls on the run got to travel lightly and the wind is at my back and the stars they shine down on me and I'm never looking back
Ghosthunter 08:53



Velvet and Bone is structured as a gothic fable.
It is about the act of self reflection through
knowing another.
It is about seeing the shadow and knowing the shadow.
It is about seeing death and knowing death.
It is about bones, and the way they are shaped
by the tensions put on them by various
opposing muscles.
and as such can be seen as "holograms of consciousness."
It is about the swamps of depression.
It is about love in its most tragic and therefore
most beautiful form.

Velvet and Bone includes materials written over many years,
dating back as far as 2010 and started as an
attempt to finally make recorded versions of some
lyrical material I had written over the years.
I was in school studying bodywork and energy work
and discovering a whole new side of life,
the physical side, the flesh and bone side,
and the accompanying realization that my interest
in the metaphysical and the spiritual had bypassed,
ironically, perhaps a missing link in my exploration.
I had somehow ignored or been hiding
from the world of the physical,
and the importance of personal connection to our
three dimensional vessels. Experiencing
the very real and very tangible power of touch,
of intention with touch, and the emotional unraveling
that I personallly needed to undertake in order
to find my body.
I won't say that I have found it at this point,
but I know now that I am at least on the journey
to retreiving that lost connection,
and that I can percieve the reflection playing out
in that other realm,
in something like a parallel and opposite action.
As I reach you I can reach me.
