Who I’m Wearing Breakdown: Blazer: Banana Republic, Shirt: Calvin Klein , Pants: Levis, Shoes: Giorgio Brutini
So i'm currently writing this in a hospital waiting room. I literally just saw my family the other day, but we got a phone call for us to all head to the hospital to be with my Uncle John. He is not doing so well and it is not looking so good. So I dropped what I was doing to go be with everyone. I'm already at this hospital for my treatment but it is weird being on this wing. It is a very sad environment and I don't really feel like talking about what is going on yet. This is my grandma's brother. The thought of him going a few days and a few years after her... That is thought no one wants to think about. So i'll talk about this. I found this blazer as I was prepping for my album release party. I didn't end up wearing it because it was extremely hot. Instead, I shot it yesterday before the storm of today came in. I broke down on Sunday at the release. i cried twice. I thought a lot about my grandma and everything that has happened since she passed. I know she would be proud of the work that I put into this record. I felt her presence and I know she was there in spirit. Setting aside the tears, it was a true special night. I sang with my sister Courtney and my brother Ben jammed along with us. It felt so good to sing these songs. My parents made all my favorite foods. Being able to blow out the candles on my congrats cake was a dream. I don't know how this is all going to turn out, I mean look things keep getting worst. But what I do know, is I will always have these special moments in my heart. My work even showed up... minus my manager, he was A-wall? For a second I thought no one was going to show up, then the whole house became packed. It was a home filled with love. Considering everything that is happening right now, we are going to need that love moving forward. If that love could make me forget I have this newfound eye disease, then love must be a powerful thing that I never want to let go of.
