Upbringing.

Crystal Waters

// A rainbow arches over the crystal waters and into an abandoned barn where raccoons hold congregation. Here my brother and I are handed days the length of summer. We wander and explore with mischief. Magic seeps over the grasses. In the gold of afternoon, traveling fleets of Monarch wink like petals through the understory. Giggling, we leap and paw at them, our hands clapping like bear traps. I make a catch! Hands cupping a flurry of fumbling velvet, I race over to him with wide-eyed intent.  His eyes meet my hands and I nod affirming. Honey stillness. Fingers uncurling, palms spread wide in offering. Instantly, marmalade wings flash forth- strong as breath, rippling the sea of child mind. //  -word painting of a childhood memory

Heartwork.

Heartwork

Spring is nearing //  bearing new beginning // seeds of gratitude I will to plant~

I give thanks for my hands and my eyes, for the ability and the vision to make play at work. I’m thankful for my sweetie and his big papa heart, for our children and their wise ways. I give thanks to Earth and Ocean and especially Moon, who pulls the tides to uncover the jewels of my expression. Special thanks to my dear friends and family for their support, encouragement and inspiration.

May this place in the web be spun with the fruits of my work and the work of those who kindle inspiration in the hearts of many. May it be a place of integrity, truth and a momentary stillroom for that which flows Unbound.
