In the past month I've put my focus on shifting energy around and out and it's feeling pretty sweet.
I've taken a break from consuming my Facebook feed and that alone feels fricking fantastic--I highly recommend.
We are taking a break from eating meat for thirty days. It's been two weeks today and this morning I woke up feeling so good. I've noticed a shift in my body system that has been long overdue and at this point I cannot imagine going back to eating meat (I will miss chicken burgers!) We've had so many delicious meals, it's unreal. Veg tacos, veg spaghetti, veg burgers, veg wraps, veg thai & indian curry--pretty well the regular menu we usually have, without any meat! Superb. We are still eating eggs occasionally and some cheese--have not committed to veganism yet--one thing at a time!
I've been soaking my soul in Pink Floyd and Eckhart Tolle--pure bliss. My husband Jason took me to a PF tribute concert a few weeks back and I can't shake the intense level of musical craftsmanship that this band put into the world. Such artistry, such beauty, such suchness...they are masters of their craft.
Eckhart Tolle--well, self explanatory if you follow him. Goodness. Enough said.
My kiddo-makes music and it's rad AF. This link will take you to his soundcloud...please go, be a witness to his creations
BIRDS! They're singing! Do you hear them? Open your doors. Go outside. They are singing spring into being.
Speaking of birds--the owls and I are singing to each other most nights;) I never get enough sleep. It is the moment of my life, I suppose. Kids, cats, dogs, owls, my thought monkey--I hear it all in the night and I rise to tend. Oh well. Life.
Speaking of thought monkeys--I have been working on staying in the moment and being the watcher of my thoughts--so much easier to do when my brain is cleared of FB nonsense and drama. I am nowhere perfect or expert level, but that is not my goal. My goal is no goal. Just be.
Coming up I will be exhibiting in a local group art show at Nest Collective. I will have a new body of work to show that is exciting me so much. It's a new direction for my work/style and I am in love. I sold two original paintings last month in the hopes that new work would flow through me and into the world--it has and I am looking forward to showing!
I am now retailing prints at Two Hoots Gallery in Cobble Hill. It's a lovely gift shop located in the heart of the village. This shop is the third retailer to stock my work. Others include Maple Bay Marina gift shop, Merridale Ciderworks. I am always looking for more retail stockists, so shoot me any suggestions you might have!
I am always conjuring new ways to share my work in interesting ways that can be of service to others. Currently re-designing new #spreadlove cards, and have a couple new project ideas simmering. It all makes me feel so alive as I move with the natural ways of being a human in a physical world striving for conscious awareness.
Thanks, as always, for reading my words and supporting my work. You are awesome! Now, go do something that makes you feel alive! You are worthy of your dreams and the world needs your magic!
