The Only One SOTW #47

The Only One SOTW #47

It’s pretty crazy that we are on week 47. It has been quite the journey. This song is a very simple “singer/songwriter” kind of tune and Tim got to use his new Taylor guitar on it.

I’ve Never Felt (SOTW #15)

For the last 2 years or so I’ve been learning to pay attention to how I feel. I’ve spent much of my life pleasing other people and as a result, haven’t owned my own feelings but instead take cues from people around me on how I should feel. I’m discovering what a lonely place that …
