Welcome and blessings to all!

Creative expression brings about a new found sense of time and allows for that joy and gratitude to enter. It is playfulness, paradoxical, foolishness that leads to wisdom. It is the languid thread running beneath the current of time, space, and memory, awaiting the fluidity of change and the next level of enlightenment. It is nothingness yet steeped within the fabric that envelopes all that is. Creativity doesn’t have set rules but instead shuns them. It employs ritual, yet denies habit.

Art as a spiritual practice and as a means to communicate spiritually with others has always been a quintessential rule in my life. It goes back to the theory that one of the modes of reaching the soul is through art. The gift of the soul is the most amazing gift you can give of yourself, and, for me, my soul is expressed most blessedly through my art and my desire is to only create that which helps women feel, essentially, like goddesses, as beautiful spiritual beings, rocking their true authentic selves. We each have a gift to offer others in this world that makes us unique and special, and, hopefully, that gift we offer to others also makes them feel unique and special.


A Hiking Quickie

I've been rather a lame duck this past year when it comes to hiking. My excuse happens to be the massive amount of rain Virginia received, and the consequential mud that would have been abundant on the trails. Fine. I'm not hardcore. I can boast of a section hike of the Appalachian Trail in which I fell in love with the beauty of the mountains and the determination, motivation, and confidence I found in myself. Being on the trail is a freedom not many choose to experience. Personally, I think most of us have no idea truly what freedom is until we chuck it all and hide away from social mores and the stress and responsibility of the highly materialistic, judgmental, and confining world in which we live.

So, I wanted to give you just a smidge of the beauty that can be found up there, a very small smidge, but nonetheless...
Hope you enjoy!

And, the boring part of the trail...
