You keep me safe
I’ll keep you wild

No matter how ugly and cruel humans choose to be towards one other, Mother is still here whispering in our ear, reminding us that beauty still lives here.
That we choose our own reality.
That the sunrise is always more than enough beauty for one day 🌬💜

After I had my son, my stretchmarks were so bad I thought my stomach would never see the light of day again. For sure I’d never wear a bikini again. Initially they were bright red-purple stripes in a giant swirl covering my entire lower abdomen. They faded to a crepey web of scarring a shade or two lighter than the rest of my skin.
As a pro dancer and performer, this was straight devastating.
I tried everything I could find to try to erase them. Nothing worked at all.
Then I discovered plant and nut-based oils, and started dabbling with essential oils, trying this and that, experimenting with various combinations until I finally created a recipe that worked.
That product is my healing moisturizer Skin Food. I found plant medicine that not only deeply moisturized and supported my skin’s tone and elasticity, it also repaired my skin at a molecular level, allowing new skin to replace the scarring.
While it will never be the same again, I learned so much in that journey of self-healing. The plants taught me to trust them and to turn to them first; they are the original healers.
And to accept my stripes as the battle scars they are.

First time at the wheel... who’s drivin this thing?

Queen of these King tides

Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you and allows your soul room to grow.
Never expect to outgrow loneliness.
Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space.
An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception.
If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment.
The best you'll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.
Mother (excerpt from White Oleander by Janet Fitch)

MOON still up
SUN rising to join her
I’m the little bird settling my wings
Silent witness to this love story

May I be the doctor and the medicine
And the nurse
For all sick beings in the world
Until everyone is healed

May all who say bad things to me
or cause me any other harm,
Those who insult me and mock me,
Have the fortune to fully wake up

May I be the protector for those without one,
A guide for travelers on the way,
A path for them to walk,
May I be a bridge, a boat, a ship
For all who wish to go across. —Shantideva's A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life
