Who am I?
I am roots exposed
the bone waiting for a dog's mouth
a creative explorer
caterpillar traversing the sidewalk
darkness containing the candle
the chipped mug tea always taste best in
lapsed artist returning to the fold
crone before maiden
hand holding sunlight
curious monkey mind
What do I do?
I practice and teach Kripalu yoga
I work a part-time job in the field of Art History
full-time creative aspirant
joyfully learn and grow as a mother to a dragon spirited girl-child
examine my dreams
apprentice to Nature
sometimes clean and cook
push myself to learn and grow
attempt to weave magic into daily day, anyway I can
Why do I blog?
For me, blogging is a means of self-expression and discovery. Through creative activity I come to know myself as empowered and connected to something greater than any of my fears or insecurities. This blog is a place where I share my stories, in the hope that doing so will inspire others to seek the lessons and the magic unique to their lives as we all learn to free our voices.
The focus of this blog is my life - messy, confused, but always celebratory with moments of clarity, insight and hopefully, glimpses of inspiration.
One part gratitude journal, one part love letter to my girl, and one part travel journal as I fumble my way towards recovery of the girl who believed she could be an Olympic medalist in paddle ball.
Or perhaps this will prove to be simply a breadcrumb trail to the real me ...
All are welcome to keep me company on any portion of this journey. Have a smidge of nutella on an animal cracker and tell me your stories.
