Update 10: update from bear country ~ never give up · Poeina & The Lucid Dreamers ~ Songs & Whispers Euro Tour!!
There are signs all over the place I’m staying that warn of bears! The neighbor said a bear climbed up a tree and onto his porch came inside and opened the refrigerator and ate everything!
Thank you Andelain Roy & Stefan Wagner for becoming backers!! I feel really blessed to have had so much support this far from friends, fans and family! I’ve been sending out a batch of free song emails everyday for everyone who has been sharing. The sharing part I wasn’t expecting was all the encouraging and supportive messsages ya’ll have been writing when sharing! I thank you endlessly!
I got a message from a young musician the other day who has been watching my fb page grow and opportunities arise and she asked me for musician advice. The most important thing I wanted to stress to her was that people will discourage you every step of the way and you must CHOOSE to listen to the people who encourage and support you. I want you all to know the only reason I have continued over the years to pursue my music is because I choose to listen to the positivity in the world. It’s not an easy task and there have been plenty of shows I’ve played where I left feeling deflated, depressed, and ready to throw in the towel. I get ready to feel sorry for myself and then I will get a nice email or fb message, or someone will approach me and tell me to “never give up”. Sometimes it’s hard to choose to listen to that and every time I choose to hear those words it gives me new inspiration and a little extra courage to continue on. I said it in the video and I want to thank all of you again for saying never give up! ~Poeina
