Do for YOU

in a perfect world
everybody would be
seen, loved, heard.

so create 
your perfect world:
see, love, hear
what's within:
embrace the image
in the mirror
& hold it dear.

only when you do it
for you
you can do it for me 

that's how we connect
in truth
in love
with respect.

Sensual Exploration with Ava

Feeling called to share my sensual experience of the world in 1-min videos – “Sensual Exploration with Ava” – on YouTube! ๐Ÿ’ƒโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ Let’s explore our wondrous 5 senses together – touch, taste, hear, smell, see with me! You can follow along and copycat – like a scavenger hunt! It only takes a minute of presence a day, planning to do it for 30-days and then we shall see ๐Ÿ˜ป

follow along ๐Ÿ˜‰

NEW: Ava’s Book Club

I love books and sharing them, so I decided to start a Book Club!! First book is “The Book of Qualities” by J. Ruth Gendler – pairing her beautiful personified descriptions of human qualities with simple daily moments in short YouTube videos. Enjoy and follow along if you are enjoying ๐Ÿ™‚

Cherchez la femme

the heroโ€™s journey/adventure quest redefinedโ€ฆ


Cycle after cycle
The seeker
Follows Truth/Love
Open, trusting, forward moving
Shiny objects/illusions
The simple obscured
The false worshiped
Pierce forth
With your sword
Annihilate the old
Courage to discern
Perseverance to act
Knowing to see without seeing
Boundless Being
New horizons expand
Uncharted, your true land.

Ava Sol: A Buddha With A Twist ;-)

Go figure, I metamorphosed once again… finally fully accepted all responsibility/got used to the idea… so now I am a Buddha with a twist ๐Ÿ˜‰

it’s a playlist, more “teachings” coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

finish… my… sentences…

This collection of self-portraits represents me coming to terms with the truth that I am enough and too much at the same time, and thatโ€™s perfectly fine/I would not have it any other way.

I co-created directly with the Sun, the images/videos are NOT EDITED at all, shot in Santa Barbara, CA in August/September 2022, natural light, natural body, natural raw real whole self.

How simple, yet hard to accept oneself completely. However, if/when you do everything somehow falls into place. ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅโ˜€๏ธ

Sweater Weather


you won't see
what's coming
until it comes
you see it coming
before it comes

you won't get this
unless you get it
and if not
you will
when you
have to

not everything
makes sense
until it all

only to
not make

two is
one is


All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.โ€

Elemental Roadmaps

There are unseen passages that open up just for us when we turn within to connect with the truth of who we are. Nothing else is needed, but a willingness to look, to be still, to surrender to the elements, to feel, to know… any time and any place is right to explore the roadmap of the soul.

She was never alone:
The Sun hugged her all over
The Earth supported her every step
The Water nurtured her roots
The Air encouraged her flight
She contained them within.
She gave birth to them without.
