4 months . . . Not only will I be marrying an amazing person in 4 short months, but I’ll have it be known that I’ll be marrying an amazing person with his AA. Blake is going back to school to get his degree, on top of working a full work week, dealing with my needy tendencies, helping plan our wedding, and raising our small boy. You inspire me @blake789 #bsinbigsur #bigsur #henrymiller #henrymillerlibrary #blakeandcats #fiance #smartypants #51819
Antes de cada viaje hago un research sobre el lugar que voy a visitar y sus hidden gems. No saben la emoción que me da cuando llego al sitio y logro verlo en vivo. #henrymillerlibrary fue ese lugar en #bigsur

It's finally here! My "letter from June" in the international Henry Miller journal. It's a piece of fiction inspired by my novel "More than a woman- the life of June Mansfield Miller" (not sure of the title yet...). This is a big deal for me and I'm super excited! . This is not an excerpt from the actual final novel, but something I wrote a few years ago as I was working on an earlier draft of the book (slide for more). It took two years (!) after I sent in the text, until I found out it was accepted by the Henry Miller journal. Two years!!! But now I'm glad it didn't happen until now, it makes more sense to have it published now that the novel is more or less done, and sold... . . I trust that the universe knows better than me, when it comes to timing and energy... So my philosophy is that it's better to just keep working hard on what feels true and right, and trust that all the practical details are taken care of by the great mystery.... Lots of love! ❤️ IDA . . More thoughts: #becomingwoman 🌅 #junemansfield

I need to be alone. I need to ponder my shame and my despair in seclusion; I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company. ~ Henry Miller #henrymillerlibrary #henrymiller #bigsur #favoritewriter #favoriteartist #tropicofcancer #introspection #shadowself #inspiration #surreal 😍🏞️📚

In October 2017 I lived in a tent as the artist in residence at The @henrymillerlib in a virtually abandoned Big Sur, California. The distractions I’d come to associate with city life were replaced with space, introspection, and at long last an opportunity to focus on songwriting. . At the culmination of my residency, @mrmcdowell drove across the newly opened Pfeiffer bridge with a trunk full of microphones, an electric bass (thanks @kingdreammusic ), a @milkmansound (Thanks Tim) and a vibraslap. . Over the next 2 days, he recorded me playing 4 songs in that whimsical cabin on the edge of the Earth, surrounded by redwoods and innumerable books. . Tracks 1-4 were recorded at HMML, but since the EP needed a side B, I’ve included live tracks that I recorded at @airshiplaboratories in Richmond, CA with @neilvg and @elburgundio . All songs mastered by @sf_mastering , of course. Photo cred to renaissance woman @brit.pow. . I’ll be celebrating the release of this EP with my dear friend and musical heroine, @dianagameros , ‪this Friday, Dec. 7th‬ at the Henry Miller Memorial. I hope you’ll join us for a cozy indoor concert. I’ll have a small batch of limited edition purple cassettes of my EP, otherwise you can stream/download on @bandcamp link in bio. . A little about the songs: . Face to Face: In essence, my thesis statement for these past 27 years of life. A song about being an impulsive, romantic, millennial with dreams of grandeur and connection. . ‪Sunday Morning: Reminder to slow down.‬ . Never Wanna Leave: A love song to my favorite place in the world, Big Sur, CA. . Asleep In Winter: 2nd song I ever wrote, as an angsty high schooler about to embark on a life of music making. . I’ve Come A Long Way: Cover of the Bobby Womack song, performed live on my @official_line6 DL4 Looping Station . Baby Teeth: First song I wrote on piano. . Thanks for listening, .

Meet Jack. He’s the sweet resident cat living @henrymillerlib in Big Sur, CA. I definitely recommend you stop by and say hi if you’re up in that area. He’s an absolute sweetheart 🖤 We just sat on the porch while he purred on my lap after the constant rain had given us a small break. The second pic is of Theo, Jack’s predecessor at the library. I met Theo two years ago on my first trip up to Big Sur. Unfortunately, he’s no longer around, he was so old and sick when I met him. I was told he is buried at the library. I’ll never forget meeting either one of these sweet babies. If there’s a cat on the premises you can be sure I’ll be somewhere around them 🖤 Just thought it would be fun to share little tidbits of other kitties I have the pleasure of meeting 😁 #bigsur #california #cat #tabbycat #rain #jack #catsofinstagram #catstagram #henrymillerlibrary #henrymillermemoriallibrary #workingcats #workingcatsofinstagram
One of the greatest gifts of my life was the 5 weeks I spent living in a virtually abandoned Big Sur. I washed my clothes by hand, rode my bike on a carless Highway 1, and played music incessantly. It was pure magic. . On Dec 7th I’ll be returning to @henrymillerlib to celebrate the release of the EP I recorded at the culmination of my residency. I couldn’t be happier than to share the evening with one of my personal heroines, @dianagameros. Join us for a cozy concert inside the library on Friday, Dec. 7 @ 7pm . #bigsur #henrymillerlibrary #hmml #bigsurisland #dianagameros #kendramckinley
