    You have to put light when there's oscurity...even when you are in a cage as a bird.

    This video and music portrays my last three and a half years. You see, I lost my son and only child at the age of 24 on 4/4/16. I can feel the beginning of the nightmare and my progression through the darkness when I watch and listen to this. It profoundly touches me. Thank you Lindsey. And, I loved your show in Fort Myers! #WarmerintheWinter

    What I think is that Lindsey is a bird, she needs to be free. The walls is her cage. When she finds light it reminds her of the sun when she was in the sky. When she found the violin she was calling our to the other birds out there to save her.
    I dunno this is what think lol.
