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 that’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. 🙏❤️‍🔥☀️

you won't see
what's coming
until it comes
unless
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
makes
perfect
sense

only to
not make
sense

SOL

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

― Hafiz

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.

Bible Study

Within

Bible Study I: Within

“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:21

*

The greatest mysteries reside inside.

No need to search,

No need to strive.

Come home:

Arrive.

FREE:BE

A poem I wrote today inspired by a conversation with my friends in our Music & Poetry Twitter space sharing about this amazing 30-day meditation challenge I did in December

{the benfits of meditation:}

what does it 
mean to be free?

from the stories
that came before,
opressing you even 
more?

from the ideas of who you need to be,
even the ones
of what it means
to be free?

from the narrow minds
that walk the lines
or
from self-imposed
confines?

from the voices in your head,
thoughts playing on repeat,
feelings that you never wish
to actually truly meet?

if only…
one day…
i could be free
for all the things I want to 
do and be…

for art
for adventure
for music
for friends
for tea
for deep conversations
for long naps
for walks by the sea
for kisses
for laughter
for sharing grief
for dreaming
for savoring
for making-believe
for soaking up sun
for meaningful work
for some simple fun
for all the things
that make you sad
for all the things
that make your heart glad
for all the things
accessible
to you and me 
- surprisingly - 
for free!

funny how it is,
what we seek
is always
right in front 
of us
yet we always 
seem to
miss

then 
one
fine
day
you
realize
that
simply
“FREE”
is
what
you 
have 
always
been 
and 
will
always
be

Art & The Artist

Going through the photos on my phone, I found this conversation which still rings true… I am a channel for the art that wants to come through me and I feel like it’s shaping/showing my soul’s roadmap, yet the meaning it holds for everyone will be unique… Blending the personal with the universal…

“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”

― Gospel of Thomas
