Ava & Anais: The Journey Within

If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love another. How do you love the Self if you don’t know it? You look within, face it all and accept it… easier said than done, but not impossible. Then something beautiful follows…

I have always had a natural inclination to look inside myself, and when I first discovered Anais Nin’s quotes, I loved her soul right away. So, this happened…

Sometimes you can find yourself in another that speaks your language. When I first read one of Anaïs Nin’s quotes I felt immediate kinship. Books can be a window to the world, but her writing is a wide open door to her soul.

Fascinated by the journey within and the mysteries it hides, Anaïs ventured courageously inward and shared her findings through strings of words. I, on the other hand, have been using self portraits to document my descent into the psyche. It was only natural to put the two together.

“Anais Nin & Ava Sol” is a collection uniting two women who shared the same world in different times. What she said is what I felt and we both expressed the excess. Uniting darkness and light, making sense of the outer through the inner, transcending limitations and dwelling in the depths two souls connected through time and space lonely, yet not alone.

Enjoy the meeting of my photographs and her quotes as 1/1 NFTs on OpenSea. Because I have to take her into the future with me.

Can you co-create with somebody who is not in a body anymore? We do it all the time without knowing, for there is no other…The collection reads like a story with Anais’ quotes and my visuals. Enjoy 🙂

TO THE WONDER

Maybe it’s not about getting to the end, but enjoying the journey/dance… Maybe it’s not what you are looking at, but how you are looking at it that matters… Maybe it’s all about how deep you are willing to dive… Maybe the job of an oracle is to confuse you more, so you can learn to trust yourself… Maybe je ne sais quois… Or maybe I know now… Go fish for yourself – you never know what you are going to find… 😉

ENDLESS POETRY

what did you forget? – who are you? – what are you here for? – can light exist without dark? – maybe all opposites comprise a whole? – maybe you are here to remember? – maybe it’s all a game of hide and seek you came to play? – maybe we fall apart so we can come together again differently/better? – maybe all points to the same thing? – is there another? – is all a mirror? – is there anything else but Love? – maybe nature has the answers? – maybe your nature knows it all? – maybe there’s no rush to find out? – maybe it’s all about enjoying the dance in the now/know

summed up

“what will you do with this one precious life?” – ahhhh…. all the possibilities!! 🧚🏻‍♀️ 

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME

God/Imagination works in mysterious ways… how the vision that came through me and gave birth to Ava Sol came full circle and manifested itself in NFT Twitter of all places… a beautiful kaleidoscope of artistic imaginations creating, supporting and thriving together, united in their differences and bringing forth new visions and inspirations… everything has already been created, and it’s only a matter of alignment… as within, so without… you reap what you sow… truth is hidden is the most obvious places… children’s books and proverbs and leaves of grass…

dreams come true

THE DANCE OF REALITY

life as consciousness expanding back into love… so many different perspectives are possible… follow the flow…allow your natural expression to emerge… it’s you and you and you always… you are it… turn within, focus on Self, live love, enjoy the play…

live love

Growth & Expansion, Harmony & Understanding, & Love, Always

As we expand in consciousness, we constantly grow into new version of ourselves and outgrow the old ones, which is a completely natural gradual process of change… embrace it and do not fear the new… let go gracefully of the old with gratitude whenever you are ready… not everybody will follow/walk alongside you in the new direction you choose to venture, and that’s ok… some will try to discourage you due to their own fear of the unknown… if you feel pulled, go anyway… it’s the natural flow of life… surrender to it and enjoy the dance of reality…

listen till the end… insights into love making remembering and including the feminine way…

growth & expansion

The Feminine Flow

What I have been expressing through my art (or rather, what has been expressing itself through me) and the ways of the feminine we are slowly, but surely starting to remember…

Come Home {you never left}

don’t quite fit in this world? – let’s create a new one – remember where you came from – we are part of nature – nothing is wrong with you – home is…

come home

Bliss

Maybe life is like exploring a new place
 the museums
 the shops
 the cafes
 the restaurants
 he bars
 the parks
 the mountains
 the beaches
 the attractions
 the clubs
 the spas
 the wineries
 the alleys
 the busy streets
 the tourist traps
 the obscure local dives
 the photo ops
 the accidental finds
 the fancy
 the mundane
 the well-trodden path
 the rough terrain
 the sweet
 the sour
 and the like
 the trending
 the forgotten
 the bizarre
 up
 down
 left
 and right
 the sunset
 and the morning light
 so much to see 
 and smell 
 and taste
 to take in
 to experience
 to revel in
 to grace.
 and then

 …
 your face.
 a memory of long ago
 it has always been you
 I’ve longed to
 explore.
 in
 out
 and all the way 
through.
 new vistas
 new landscapes 
 a sacred vision
 come true.

this
is
bliss.
