and to rockstar girls the world over…
an open letter to the golden haired beauty i met at the motion city sound track show last saturday night at starland ballroom… and to rockstar girls the world over…
any guy who needs a break from you is insecure. most twenty five year old boys do not know how to respect and love free-spirited girls who throw handbags on the floor and crowd surf. you will meet a man who thinks your weird is wonderful. until that day – rock it solo sister. you are amazing and powerful in your own right. life is pretty dope when you only have to report to yourself.
go to california.
you displayed a ferocious desire to see the world, but explained you wanted a sign from the universe to guide your path.
here is your sign. go to california.
go as far and as often as you can. worry about the money later. most smart people will vehemently disagree with me. ignore them. you will figure the finances out later… for now… just go.
pack lightly. avoid excess baggage like high heels or phone numbers for ex boyfriends. stay light and save room in your suitcase and in your heart for treasures you cannot even imagine.
get stoned and spend the afternoon having your brain turned inside out at the dali museum in spain. dip your toes in the pacific ocean. find a cheap flight anywhere and invite anyone willing to take the trip to join you. if a menu is written in a foreign language ask the waitress to surprise you.
the world gets simultaneously smaller and more magnificent as you begin to explore it.
five years ago i was in your shoes. years of experience have taught me one thing… you are on the right track. instead of falling to pieces after your break up, you went to a rock show with your girlfriends. you got out of your head and talked to a stranger (me) at the bar. you opened yourself up to another human… to a fellow lover of life, music, books, and travel.
stay in this head space.
beautiful girl… i hope you found my card in your wallet and remembered to visit my website. i hope you read this article… your article… and pull from it what you need. i hope you keep trusting strangers and throwing your bag on the floor. i hope you will always crowd surf and dance like a rockstar.
