You Make Your Own Reality - Going After Saint Claire
I am going to sit outside this gate until the sun comes up. I don't care how long it takes. I don't care if I miss out on the entire music festival. I know what I want and I'm going to make it happen. I've never felt so focused & determined in all my life. I just saw Saint Claire perform on the Yeti stage at Sasquatch Music Festival and the minute the first note left his throat I was hooked. He sang his first word, I look at my girl Melina and said "I'm going to sing with him," and I walked out of the crowd. I stood on the hill by the side of the stage in awe - I've never seen anyone perform with such freedom. I grabbed my phone and frantically typed the words that were pouring into my mind.... "What came through him was so beautiful. That's inside me too...Go work with him to get it out. Go with him. Wherever. Leap. Eek. Until it flows through you. Then fly off." I returned to the stage 30 minutes after his show ended and asked the security guards to take me to him. Of course they were like... "Sorry ma'am, the musicians have already left. He won't talk to you unless you're some famous artist blah blah blah..." I didn't care. They gave me his business card. Thanks but not good enough. I HAVE to meet him. I kept asking security people until I found someone that would help me. (Thank you Mr. Eiligh) It took about 30 minutes but eventually, they tracked down Saint Claire & convinced him to come out and take to me. I showed him the notes I'd written on my phone, stumbled over my words (I wasn't exactly sober) and ended up with a plan to meet up for coffee in Seattle after the festival. I have no idea what's about to happen but I've never felt so clear about anything before. I had to meet him and I have to ask him if I can learn from him. We'll see what happens next. LIFE LESSON: you can make your dreams come true. once you know what you want, it's simple. you do whatever it takes to make it happen. dreams seem impossible until you start to take action and then suddenly you realize how close and simple it's been all along.
