CBD, Plain Jane, and a Whole Lotta Gratitude

August 16, 2020

A little over a year ago I began to experience some gnarly backpain. As an avid runner, I chalked it up to an injury related to that. As an avid idiot, I continued running nevertheless.

Over the next three months, my back pain increased significantly resulting in my inability to run altogether. After a few x-rays, some bloodwork, and a CT scan—the results of which showed nothing out of the ordinary (which I’d later find is quite common when it comes to back injuries).

By this point, I was worn out, frustrated, and disheartened. Not only was I unable to run, but simple activities such as standing up and sitting down, getting in and out of cars, or grocery shopping became borderline unbearable at times because of the pain. Any semblance of quality of life was non-existent for me. I promise I’m not being dramatic in these sentiments. Anyone who has experienced serious to severe back issues can certainly vouch for that.

Eventually, my doctor ordered an MRI, the results showing that I had a herniated disc, severe spinal stenosis, disc bulges, and degenerative disc disease. (Yeah, it’s about as fun as it sounds.)  (more…)

Home: In Memoriam of Ram Dass

December 23, 2019

RD 3

I didn’t even bother going into my bedroom to lay down last night after learning about Ram Dass’s transition knowing it would be futile. So here I am at 6am and going on zero sleep. I did, however, create this overnight as it’s what I felt called to do. It’s all one take, no edits, and very raw, but as I believe Ram Dass would say, “it’s a transmission of the heart,” so that is exactly how it will stay—raw, flawed, and from the heart. There are more details in the video description on the Youtube page if you’re interested. Sending you all love.
