I Guess You Just Breathe

2016 was my year of shattered illusions and my call to activism.
After the results of the US election a veil was ripped from my eyes and I looked at the world thinking; “well, fuck!”. Depression hit hard and writing has been the best way for me to deal (actually, writing, vegan ice cream and watching bad movies). This song has been my companion for the past two months. It has eased my growing pains. It has also changed shape quite a few times (there were definitely some raging versions).
I decided to film/record it as my declaration to the new year.
Note to self: breathe. Then act.

I would also like to add that this is the first time I have recorded a baby grand piano “live”.  I feel like it sounds all right.  In a few years I might listen to it and cringe, but right now I say “not too bad for a first go of it”.

Also, Happy New Year!
