My personal life has been in a blender. So much transition has occurred and I am finally able to breathe and sort through the truths of what is left. When I think about how much time has past that I did not accomplish what I intended and yet I was on the path that I needed to be on; I am so grateful that the universe has a magnet to keep me (us all ) in some sort of alignment. Sometimes, ….well maybe most of the time when I create work conceptually I am ahead of what is to come. I feel as if I am in the moment but in actuality that moment is coming and I can sense it. The moment is always now but there are layers of truth that ring true after all is said and done. The film of truth coats my metaphorical tongue and I can taste it for months or years. I guess it is good for it to linger so I can process the lessons and move forward to the next place.
This all reminds me of the tarot collection I released in fall 2014. One card in particular is stuck in my head and my heart. The 4 of Stones. This cards calls for balance and assessment. There may not be room to breathe. If the tight hold is loosened than things can move forward and thrive again. There is an internal compass that can be accessed and must be trusted! I hope you trust your compass.
Blessing to you!
I have been missing you. Feeling like so much is moving in my life I can barely keep up. Wondering how you are doing? The part of you that is a mystery will always remain a mystery. I accept that truth and am grateful to understand any part of you. Venus is traveling direct and rises out of the underworld with wisdom from the darkness to bring to light. Let’s bathe in that light. You and I……in perfect love and perfect trust.

The new year is not so new anymore. It rushes by like a river. Spring is almost here and like the new buds that are emerging everywhere I look, my new collection is also ready to bloom.
So many new thing are coming my way and I look forward to sharing my journey with you. In the next few months I will be moving into a new studio and that means new energy flow and new possibilities. Right now though I have been putting together a textile collection for 2016 that will be released by May. My inspiration has always been nature in it many forms from flowers to stones to microscopic organisms. This collection is no different and in fact I have combined all these inspirations into one line of thought.
For now I would like to share some of my preliminary ideas and samples.

Allow for the good things to come.
The space is made
The time is now
Opening the heart center with crystals and smoke
Relinquishing the past the pain the missepts
Re align with the now
Love what you have
Attract what you love
This is a perfect mix

The passage of time is a transition, a movement. Living life in the now and forever going forward. Some things we shed and some things we take with us. What we take are our tools, they help to build the future and add to the character of our life.
The passage is always open and in motion. It is through the earth that we find the clues. The darkness and warmth of the earth brings life and sustains motion by seeking the light.
