heart of the matter

heart as home

This is the time to dive deep into the heart of the matter.

As we move through this seasonal change, what does this Autumn offer?
Nature begins to prepare for winter by sweeping away what is unnecessary – the leaves turn and fall, the gardens move to winter mode, the rains wash away the dust of summer – and what of us?

What does this season ask of me?
What messages does it hold?
What practices do I need to integrate into my daily rhythm of life to support and nourish me throughout this season?

I hear a few things so far…

An invitation to be vulnerable, flawed, authentic, and be okay with it. Really okay with it. Really.
An invitation to let it (whatever it is for me right now) drop into the earth to become compost for the next growing season

you are not alone, friend

we are nearby

with a steady anchor rock of care

with fragrant boughs of devotion

with bright feathers of protection

with a soft nest for rest and refuge

on our island, together

so connected

shelter, refuge, and tender hearted grace in rainbow town


be awesome

in the midst of a whirlwind of habit and busy mind, this little bear with his golden shimmer heart and starry cape

it is all just awesome.

I just moved to a new town and it is magical – infused with art and nature. I came with a strong intention of healing. I am more and more curious about the importance of interdependence and intentional community in this healing process. And the way that involvement in community arts can play a key role in healing for self and community.

I look forward to sharing some projects that are exploring these themes in the next couple blog posts.

thanks for reading,

“There is a vit…

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open”
― Martha Graham
