I wanted to share something awesome that happened to me today with whoever still keeps up with me on this blog. or maybe I just wanted to see it written down in words. whichever is fine. so I woke up at 5:30 am with my friend to film an acoustic video for my song “fallin’" at this really cool spot I go to whenever I need some visual candy to clear my mind from bullshit. we wanted to get shots of the sunrise and whatnot in the background so off we went. as we were filming, a few bystanders (mostly really old couples who just love waking up early to watch the sunrise and walk/talk) watched and recorded me and kept giving me smiles. they stayed to watch everything. as we were leaving, I got the chance to talk to most of them and thank them for their ear support (I love that by the way). 

one of the couples waited till we were alone and ready to leave to come up to me. the old man had a blue Ralph Lauren polo shirt with a coffee stain right in the middle and his wife was a Betty White doppelgänger with the warmest smile I’ve ever felt in my life. they came up to me and gave me a hug. the lady snuck a 50 dollar bill into my hand and told me, “here’s to your future.”

by far one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. not just for the money. but to know that a stranger has the heart to believe in you.
