Here I stand, in these times of much fire: warmth and destruction, with sparks that flicker into the night sky and fireflies that glow in the rich vast depths of my soul, revealing to me that within the darkness lays luminescence and a phoenix in outline, she rises from the ashes – a creation, a memory of imagination pixelated into a figure of pristine mystic inspiration, a companion that guides me in continuing to follow those passions, visions, dreams…
Cosmic eyes gaze into the eternal flame,
one of which composes a symphony of delight,
and I begin to awaken my consciousness
to the understanding that I am in fact a creator…
every breath, every challenge, every moment is a creation
and I am merely like that of a thread of yarn,
rolling down a hill and mingling with those around
to unfold this story,
this story of perspective.
I am a writer, an artist, a storyteller, a musician, a permaculture designer, a volunteer in communities that I feel aligned with – which very much includes the magical Arte Soleil. I feel empowered and clear in my vision, clear in what I am creating, and what I intend to bring forth in this existence! And I am currently taking my passions to a whole new depth…
I give so much thanks to Arte Soleil for all the support in this personal journey of mine, from the creative process to intuitive feelings I have. They are so patient with me and my way of sharing my gifts; I am certain that many others can resonate with these same words – for many creators have shared / displayed their pieces of expression here, as expression is simply a story of perspective. And all perspective is personal truth.
