People don’t listen to me. I’m used to it tho. So now that I’m blogging again this will serve as official record that I told each and every one of you that Ari Lennox was insanely gifted and you need to get familiar….and quickly.
Or you can stay asleep.
Hailing from the great city of Washington DC, she has been making noise for years and steadily increasing her fan base by means of her frequent use of YouTube and Twitter.
Her newest song “Bound” is spellbinding indeed…
Check out her earlier projects “Ariography EP” and the “Five Finger Discount” and be on the lookout for her new release.

I initially started this blog as a space to share my thoughts, and at the time that I started writing, it was primarily about my (perceived) perpetual state of singleness. Much has changed however, and as I discover more and more information about my “spinsterhood”, I realize that my story is still very much unwritten. While I am still single, I feel much more in control of my life and happiness than I’ve ever been, and that means that I am the one in control of the story, therefore putting my own “spin” or perspective on it.
I believe that spinsterhood is a term for a period where marriage and family was the only means to pursue any sort of ambition in a society and culture that objectified and treated women as property. Women who didn’t or couldn’t comply with that cultural expectation had to do what was necessary to survive. As a post-evangelical seeker, I am simply discovering the idea that spinsterhood in this day and age, to me, is living life on my terms, trying to manage my engagement with society at large on those terms.
