Transparency.

Investing in myself and my journey.

Learning how to make music my career.

Exploring my creativity.

Rediscovering my essence, my purpose, and my voice.

Every time I start a new blog I word it the way I think I should. But this time I’m going to write in my own voice.

I’m autistic. I’m queer. I’m spiritual. And I create.

Every day is a learning experience, figuring out who I am now. I’m just going to write what comes and make this place mine.

If you’re reading, welcome to my first public attempt to be unfiltered and unplanned in my writing. Anything might come up here. Occasionally I might share scars, but no scabs. I’ll keep it mostly short. I’m a person of constant process and this will give you glimpses of it.

Yup, totally scared. Because I filter everything all the time with everyone to some degree to hide who I am. Here, I’m devoted to authenticity. Just me, no platforms, no guidelines, nothing to prove. For the sake of my mental health, I’m going to be more transparent about my existence.

Being autistic means growing up a chameleon. Masking = survival. Peeling back those layers is going to challenge me, but it’s going to encourage me to be a healthier person. And if you’re reading this, you’re a part of my journey.

So welcome to my new, transparent, authentic, strange little blog.

I’m committed to the ongoing process of spiritual alchemy.

I feel safe in caves and blanket forts, do you?

Darkness is comfy and uncomfortable, too. I like it. So I’m calling this blog The Chrysalis, where transformation happens in real-time. This is my safe space and I’m going to nurture it.

Visit as often as you like. There are lots of blankets.
