Dear Friends,

I am absolutely delighted to tell you that my new song "Seven" is out everywhere today!!!

Enthusiast Lores.jpg

"Seven" is the 23rd song (of 25) in my Atlas: Year Two series (and it's the 7th song in the Enneagram chapter - a song for each of the nine unique and beautiful Enneagram types of personality.)

If you happen to identify as a type Seven, my hope is that this humble attempt at capturing you in song not only celebrates your brightness, but honors your deep depths. You are an infinite source of light in this world and help all of us experience life with more richness and fullness.  Thank you!! I hope that at least a part of your spark is here in the melodies, instrumentation and words of this song.

... or subscribe to the Official Atlas: Year Two playlist on Spotify!!


Wanna hear the birth story of "Seven"? Episode 16 of The Sleeping At Last Podcast is out TODAY too and it's  jam-packed with Seven-ness - I get to show you what/why/how these sounds and ideas became a song and talk about who these wonder-FULL Enneagram type Sevens are, etc. Joined by resident Enneagram expert, Chris Heuertz (buy his book!!) I'd be honored for you to give it a listen! And if you're up for it, please consider subscribing to the podcast!

how nice it’d be if we could try everything.
i’m serious, let’s make a list and just begin.
“what about danger?” so what. “what about risk?”
let’s climb this mountain before we cross that bridge!

‘cause i’m restless, i’m restless, i’m restless
for whatever comes next.

how wonderful to see a smile on your face.
it costs farewell tears for a welcome-home parade.
a secret handshake between me and my one life:
i’ll find the silver lining no matter what the price.

‘cause i’m hungry, oh i’m hungry, i’m hungry
for whatever comes next.

let me tell you another secret of the trade-
it feels like sinking when i’m standing in one place.
so i look to the future and i book another flight.
when everything feels heavy, i’ve learned to travel light.

but i want to be here.
truly. be. here.
to watch the ones that i love bloom.
and i want to make room
to love them through and through and through 
and through the slow and barren seasons too.

i feel hope
deep in my bones
tomorrow will be beautiful

and i’m ready, God i’m ready, oh i’m ready,
restless and hungry, but i’m ready
for whatever comes next.
