a journey

it's constant isn't it? this search for who we are, what we love, what is most essential to our very being...

I feel like i've been searching forever, in lifetimes before this one. I am a person that believes strongly in self discovery. Some may call it selfish, I call it essential. I don't believe we can fulfill our true purpose with out first discovering who we are at the core of our being.

I found a beautiful book a while ago, and then life got crazy. the self discovery got pushed aside and the survival-mode kicked into full gear. Life has calmed down again, and i am back searching and this book is my newest guide

Style Statement: live life by your own design

It's a perfect jem of a book and I am spending my sunday reading it's pages and answering it's questions with a lot of thought and detail. I may share my answers often, or this may be the only post I write on it... but please, go pick it up from your local bookstore or check out the website;

Sacred Woman*

Sacred Woman

whisper to the sun
taste the wind
voice the waves
worship your wild, true heart

remember we are open, vast creatures
exploring and questioning everything

embrace this life
greet the sun and moon with passion and purpose

the lazy days of summer*

it's been a very warm couple of days for us. I've spent so much time out in the sun and running around with friends and family, that I haven't been keeping up with much of anything that has to do with being on a computer inside the house. I though I would take a few minutes to post a couple of pictures from the road trip I took with my dear friend Andrea to the Calgary Zoo. More to come soon... xoxo

I am currently:

listening to: the soundtrack to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It has some beautifully haunting melodies

eating: cinnamon waffles, warm from the oven

drinking: decaf coffee with cream and natural sweetener

wearing: my blue comfy pyjama pants and a soft black top. it's all about comfort when i'm at home

feeling: exhausted

weather: crazy. we started out with a major lighting and thunder storm this morning, then warmed up to 27 degrees (c) and now our skies are grey and thundering again.

wanting: a few days off to spend creating and some money to buy more art supplies :)

needing: to connect with my tribe. i miss them so much and it has been far too long since we've all been together

thinking: about which creative project i want to focus on in the next month

enjoying: my aunt's company and the conversation we share
