Gray Squirrels


Featured image: Squirrel

Gray squirrels came up and just looked at me this morning as I was having my coffee reset. And they just stared. In the beginning I thought, “What do you want? What are you telling me?” So, I looked them up on AUNTY FLO. It says that squirrels remind us to have some fun. The Native Americans believe that the gray squirrels often are seen as a symbol of resourcefulness, agility and adaptability. 

Hmmm… I totally agree with Auntie Flo. I think I will have fun today.

Intuition and Imagination


Featured image: The Journey of a Gypsy

Intuition and imagination

Wake up your intuition, take a deep breath, exhale slowly. 

Our intuition guides us to follow our own path. Our intuition works as a team with our imagination. Intuition, imagination, they work as a team. They fill us with energy. They exhaust us.  When we follow their paths, they connect us with our nature and our identity and we can follow our own light.

Listen with everything you are

I am in love with springtime,

 joy of new life emerging

listen with everything you are

listen to the cry of the jays

Black birds

to the hum of the waking world

It’s beginning again

it’s beginning again

its beginning again

wake up to the

earth is trembling

with possibility

Heart is Calm


Featured image: Dancing with the Wind and the Trees

In the woods I stand with the trees and in the sunshine.  I could stay here for hours.  These times lift my heart and take all my worries away.  I listen to everything the woods are saying and my heart is calm.

Artist vs Science


Featured image: Imagination

Artists work in subjectivity not objectivity like science. Science has a hard time grappling with subjectivity because it is difficult to quantify and be objective.

Art is a shelter


Featured image: Shelter

You know how you go about living and thinking that everything's okay, and then all of a sudden, everything seems to be jammed up and bogged up and bad, and you just wish that you could curl up and stay in a little ball until all things have passed by?

Well, I haven't eaten— that happens when you make art. 

Art is a shelter for all those things that you've curled up into a ball and made yourself into. You need to uncurl and create, just create, and create, and create.
