So, today I want to take a moment to send love, appreciation and a massive THANK YOU to all you strong women out there.
Because even if you don’t know it, even though you don’t feel it, you all are strong.
You are all filled with absolute power.

Starting off with ”nah, this is really not my bag”, leading to ”hey, I can listen to this without getting an allergic rash”, and then ”well, I quite enjoy this” ending at ”I actually like this, it makes me smile, it’s filled of joy – and joy is so very much needed right now”.

Call it a six (long) track meditation, if you will.
I will simply call it amazing.
Yeah, it’s a bit of a struggle – and had we all been 25 and single, we probably would have been out a lot more, but no. We don’t do that many shows, we choose carefully and say no. That way we can keep the spark and have fun – and never feel like ”this is just another day at work”
