I do hope that your ears have been burning a lot recently, cos I have been TALKING ABOUT YOU, saying so many wonderful things on the daily 🤩.
In case you missed the news, I took a leap of faith and purchased a plane ticket to Los Angeles so I could attend the invite-only Patrecon, Patreon's new creator conference! Yay credit cards 😅. Hashtag worthit 😊.
I arrived in LA after 33 hours of journeying and got sick the day I arrived, so was bedridden for days, oh noooooo! Fortunately I was staying with my lovely Aunt and she took the best of care of me!
Despite that unfortunate beginning I got myself to Patrecon and had THE BEST TWO DAYS EVER! I heard talks, attended workshops and, most importantly, connected with other uniquely weird creators like me! The feeling of being a part of something is so special, OMG!
Anyway, I'm gonna share more about that soon...
For now, here's a video shot by Tyler May during my visit to Patreon HQ on Friday. I came up north to visit my sister (where I am now), and figured I just had to stop by Patreon (cos Patrecon just wasn't enough, haha).
Thanks to Heather and everyone at Patreon for the kind welcome! They even invited me to play a few songs, which led to this moment, when I played Lovers In The Morning Light with Spencer Handley, who is the dude I collaborated on the album version of this song with!
If you have not yet downloaded the album version of this song, do so right here right now!
Honestly, I can't get over how fucking fortunate I am to have you all in my world! I get so wrapped up in my head sometimes, so worried about all the mistakes I've made and will make...but the truth is, I am living a life I've dreamed of, sharing music and stories which bring joy and hope into this world. And, YOU ARE DOING IT WITH ME! Ok ok, I'll stop, but seriously, you are AMAZING!
Enjoy the video, let me know what you think in the comments below, and I'll be back on to chat more soon. You're amazing, thank you for being on this journey with me.
PS: please share this out with the world if you enjoy it, let's make the circle bigger!!!
