Some might wonder, why Soulhaven? We’ll it’s a name I coined that best signifies the importance your home plays in your creativity and total well being. The name actually came out of simply trying to find a name for my company. Initially I choose the street name of my childhood home, Woodhaven. Isn’t that telling? But it wasn’t available as a domain. So I thought on it very briefly and choose Soulhaven.
Oxford dictionary defines soul and haven as:
1.the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
2.emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance.“their interpretation lacked soul”ha·ven
a place of safety or refuge.“a haven for wildlife”
Isn’t that interesting?
At the time I didn’t think much about the name. But then I got to thinking, and I realized my entire I life I’ve been constantly searching for a safe place to create my art. A place with a good vibe that has Soul.
You see my father left me and my brother when I was only 6 months old, and my brother was 5. Although it was tough not growing up without a father, It also drove me and created a strong sense of wanderlust. I couldn’t wait to get out and see the world so I left home at the early age of 17. First to study music in Boston, then travel as a professional musician, and living in towns where best to express my creativity. For me it was Charlotte NC, getting the bass spot in Maurice Williams, Zodiacs, and then NYC, Los Angeles, and Silvermine, CT, to continue to pursuing an acting and music career .
I’m sure growing up without a father was a big reason why both me and my brother were both drawn to music. It certainly kept us off the streets and out of trouble for the most part. Lol. My brother has been a drummer is an entire life, and I followed him having always looked up to him and became a bass player as soon as my right hand could reach the end of the neck at 13. We both play and love music to this day. In the 60’s and 70’s R&B and Soul music was the music of our times. It transcended color and race. One saying that was used wildly back in the day was “You Got Soul”. Meaning do you have style, or creativity inside you that has to come out.
So Soulhaven for me means finding a home where you can live and express your greatest creation, “A life well lived”.
Soulhaven is also a state of mind and a feeling when one finds that perfect room with a view, or studio with the perfect acoustics that inspires you to write a song, recite a poem, write a screenplay, play, or simply make you want to kick off your shoes and dance like no ones looking. This is what inspires me most of all about real estate. And that is what ultimately lead me to branch out into Real Estate and create this blog.
My art and my home are intrinsically linked. Ass it is for you. We all have the desire to create in one way or another. Even your children are an expression of the human need to create. And passing on to the ones you love your passion for life. This blog is a celebration for all things creative and to help find your Soulhaven in the worlds
