Tribal gypsy life

Your life purpose just becomes taking care of these kids that fight you for a single step of the way. You have to just surrender. I still feel that urgency to do something bigger, do something better like maybe I’m gonna read book that’ll change the world but I haven’t written it yet.

Living in the heroin highway

I woke to the sounds of the morning The alarm quakes me into day and I hit the ground dancing. 
Engaged in routine grasping bits of chores satisfying my mounting list a lil. If I could just have one more hour or a few more hands.
Finding my place in the world I’m not ever free again and it scares the shit out of me.
Again and again I am separated from my art by this heroin epidemic and I don’t dance with this devil. I change diapers and care for so many kids.
Everyone around you suffers the greatest of consequences while you get high.

Our minds, body and soul needs the truth not the addiction fed lies you try and serve with convincing eyes. 
Do you believe yourself?

There’s an epidemic out there!

There is an epidemic of epic proportions out there. It’s t’s complying with the order of cease and destroy.it is still successful at killing if it doesn’t kill the host it shreds them of their dignity and dreams. Holding their life hostage terrorizing families. 
I wish I had some great holistic advice. But I don’t other than wake up and stop fucking doing highly processed shot that’s killing you. ( I was going to put in the name of the drug but really any processed shit will kill you) 

I am sick of unnecessary death and dying and not being able to do anything to help except pick up the pieces. Today I feel so tired. I just want everyone to do the right thing for themselves, their families and their community.look at the big picture envision the future and choose life

    Mom-Ing it

    Sorry I haven’t bombarded you with my usual abundance of poetry and panic,  Inspiration and muse. I have been fostering two babes and have two kids at home. My days are endless and my nights feel sleepless and dreamless. I hardley have time for a shower never mind let the flow of words vibrate from the ethers. When this happened to me when my own 3 children were in diapers I blamed it on my ex. Lol.  I do have Flo tho.. I can freestyle about puke and poop all day long!!! 

    Free trade high

    Time circles high Pushing through to what matters 

    What matters most in this icy desolation Daughters of the revolution 

    Sons of anarchy

    All in chaotic bliss central to my location 

    Central to the core of my beliefs 

    Central to the Armageddon of 

    my song, My rules, my choices

    Who can stand by me

    Holding the power of patience 

    And dedication to family

    Who can stand by me

    Through acquisition and free trade

    Selling humble wares

    Witnessing the miracle of healing

    And the erythema of harmony  

    Humanizing humans

    Poetry where my mouth wasA cause to support human evolution

    A revolution in humanity

    Creating a welcoming home for foreigners 

    Legalizing aliens, ( what the fuck even a play on words sounds dehumanizing)

    legalizing travelers that help a thriving community

    Utilizing natures laws we create safety in migration

    A salutation in solution standing together not in solitude

    One nation one earth under the sky

    Sacred Holistic Arts*~balancing and winter works

     Balance… 

    Is finding normalcy in this life even possible? We have all have our preconceived notions of what normal is supposed to be like, but is living it actually what we want? I told my daughter last night that I would love it if she could be happy all the time but that isn’t always possible. Sometimes we have to take life by the moments.  Sometimes you have to just find one thing beautiful and focus on that for awhile and realize that moment is beautiful and eventually they add up.

    Sure I would love a house, a husband/wife I could be faithful too a great job and a group of friends I go out with on one scheduled visit a month. Sadly not my life right now and I would have to give up my summer touring around for one or more of the normal things and I am not ready to grow up that much yet. Stability is not over rated and yet I am not ready to settle for just any house or job that might take me away from my art. The key is balance.

    Striving for amazingness is great but not if it makes you go crazy!  A little each day just do a little something and eventually it will add up! I am amazed as I begin to publicly share my stuff just how much I do make and as you get to know me and my life it’s a lot of chaos but I make things happen pushing through obstacles.

    Patina time this picture right here is of the two arbiters that I made for the mobile’s and now I am oxidizing them so they are that beautiful turquoise color. I have been holding my breath for A few days during this process hoping it doesn’t destroy the work and enhances it nicely!!!!!!!

    Finding your way ~Sacred holistic arts

    Β If you are reading this you are on your way to the sacred. We are all searching to better our lives one moment at a time.

    Luminous Meditating Β  $60
    We are a nation that looks forward to the future and lives in the past. Though I do believe that if you want to progress it’s best to learn from your past and have an idea on where you want to go in the future. The focus should be in the here and now. You really can’t live in any other time than the now. Now is just where you were meant to be. E Tolle wrote a phenomenal book here and now and it teaches us that nothing exists but the here and now.

    New England is the only place where you can have all seasons happening in one week. Two snow days and one weekend really help me to focus on my work, my calling, my art. Snow bound moments in time keep me creating on full alert. Scrambling to make money and pay bills while staying true to who I am is a balance I enjoy.

    $150 This is the desert dweller dreams

    Β  Β This guy right here is laced with many dreams and the wire is pencil thick

    I’m in the middle of applying for a HUGE grant through a company called Artplace. If you have big idea’s on art centered things in your community I suggest looking it up. If I were to get this it could make my dreams come true and bring an art Mecca to this valley. When I went to the seminar it was all about ‘ What would you do if you had unlimited resources to make your dreams come true?’ Sooo what would you do?

     

    Sacred holistic arts~*survival

      This is the word that keeps playing through my head this morning as I attempt to figure out the best way to go about doing it in the up coming months before festival season. 

    Survival is more than just trying to live in this world or being successful or even healthy how about being happy? Let others figure out their own source of contentment so you can work on yours. Yes parents I am talking to you too. Especially those parents of teens. Tomorrow I am sending my 15 year old across the United States from ma to California at his request. You never know what the right answer for someone else is so I am respecting his decision and hoping that he can heal whatever wounds he has endured and make a happy well adjusted life for himself under his fathers guidance  .point being we all have dis-ease and disorders name it, claim it and find a way to get over it. That’s more than surviving that’s living the life you love 

       
    Survival

    There is a vague emptiness

    That surrounds my chaos

    Surrealism that is misguided

    As this life lived in reverence

    Cast mundane aside

    For a moon dance 

    Saturating our cells

    In starlight from where we came filling that void

    To help us endure reality

    Suggestions that marginalized 

    The magnitude of being

    A better human spirit.

    Dancing in the dirt of reality

    Gleaning lessons of a souls journey.

    I push through obstacles

    Giving back what’s not mine

    Letting others be responsible for their own happiness and substandard choices

    In their existence

    Looking for a lifetime 

    Beyond these fleeting moments of love to share mind body and soul 

       
    Trashy existence 

    Music for this topic ( scale down and synchronicity by rising Appalachian )

    In one week I have quite the accomplishment!!!! One small bag of trash for four people! The rest is recycled and composted. We compost every thing paper, food pottery.  What can you do to keep your elimination to a small one bag in the land fill a week or even less? I reuse all the bags I can to pack snacks, make art and buy stuff with less packaging. It is hard with kids tho. If you can beat me and my Bag I am working on 9 days I’ll send you a piece of original art …. Send me proof a picture and your address…πŸ€”πŸ€—πŸ‘πŸΏπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ—‘we can save our world one space at a time. 

    Art rampages

      

    My hands are always busy. This week I continued working on my mobile. Well it’s not meant for me! I did use some recycled copper I came across at the dump!! Whenever I can I do. I use to buy copper from the recycling center but OSHA  had to go and make some law that says I can’t buy it from there!!! Anyways I had this idea that I needed to add one more piece to complete it and hung it. My son timeless and I went out to work on the teepee and have a fire and I came across this half wrapped gorgeous crystal that had been abandoned in the yard by a kid and time found a piece of telascope glass it was the perfect. Size for a combo! Now the double mobile is done. $250 total. After years of making this stuff I do know that some people can’t afford the whole price and want to buy just a piece of amazingness so each of the dangles is for sale too. I’ll have to figure out a way for me to list it on etsy! But I do hope it all sells as one piece since it is a divinely guided rustic eye candy that can’t be rushed process.   

     Adult coloring book 

    Im going to sell some art for a coloring book probably with poetry too I haven’t decided what the best way to publish it will be but I wan sharing some pics of the art you ( my readers) are welcome to download and color! Ha arn’t you glad you clicked on my link today;) 

        Magic cloak is still in the making inch by inch row by row I’m gonna make this lavender cape glow. I hope that it will become luminous in the black light making pics pop we shall see. 

      Hats

    I have to admit I am broke so with two baby showers coming up I crotched some hats. I hope they love them soft and fuzzy. I can’t follow a pattern but I can crotchet almost anything to shape. 

       

     that’s about it for now thanks for reading . Behind me is the beautiful anja art work. You can find her under Jenna odhner

    Love and light in all your creations

    Hello from the other side

    It’s Monday morning 

    I love to hibrinate in the winter and create and cleanse. I have had busy hands but when I am stuck I clean until I get my next project in mind. The art I create is sacred and I treat it so…  I started working on another magic cape on satin lavender. 

       
    Six hours into this piece I spilled lavender tea on it. I picked it up with this wet bubble paint augh!!! 

     
    We will make it work for us. Sometimes a great piece is about pushing through an obstacle and finding a way to make it work. This case I sprinkled gold sparkles. It is a magic cape.

    Here is some of the goods I made here is the scarf I made for a custom order. I love when pieces are meant to be as this one that finished with just a little yarn left!!πŸ™πŸΌβ­οΈπŸŒˆ

     Another custom order I sent off was this dream catcher talisman 

     She asked for a garnet so I had apiece I had to carve out of the matrix sanded and oiled with love it’s on it’s way home now in Pennsylvania πŸ˜‰

    Here are scenes from home 

       

    Full moon πŸŒŸπŸŒπŸŽ†

    • We had a beautiful full moon. I love pulling my bed right under my window to sleep and take a moon bath.
    • Simplifying and cleaning are part of my creativity ritual.  Whenever I am stuck or uninspired this is what I do. Cleaning with intention sets your mind free to create
    • On a full moon I gather my rocks into a big glass jar full of water and set it outside under the light of the full moon. Moon dance water     
    • When I make my cleaning mix I add a dash of moon dance water that has been energized by the moon then I add a handful of sea salt and a cleaner like pinesol which is just soap and essential oil. Now the salt is a purifying element. When it dries the salt will crystallize with your moon dance waTer everywhere you clean. Many traditions use salt to purify and cleanse body and soul before a ritual.

    I am sitting here with the homeschooling family while my little man is coloring by numbers. Last week we worked on astrology.  
     and here are Halle’s comets and the sun and solar system. This weekend they discovered a new planet!!!! Right outside of Neptunes orbit! You should have seen his face as he recognized the words we have worked onπŸ˜„
