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

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…🤔🤗👏🏿🙌🏻👌🏼🗑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.

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!!🙏🏼⭐️🌈

 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 😉

Here are scenes from home 

   

Full moon 🌟🌝🎆

  • 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 on😄

Where do we go from here

  •   So in this whole mess we have to find a way to make education work for everyone. We need to find effective solutions for these schools that have no money to deal with the rising problems that they are facing.

I can only speak from my expierience and my educationaexperiences for my self and my children. My kids school situation has been incredibly difficult until we got them the help that they needed. I am not saying that we are on a easy road but learning how to advocate for their needs helps tremendously. I wish each kid came with their own guide book but after years I do have more knowledge and understanding of what works and what doesn’t.

In the school of question all three of my kids went there. My boys went to this calm room and my daughter saw it but never had to go. My oldest went there several times 8 years ago and at the time I didn’t question the professional thinking they had more expierience with these unruly behaviors but questioning him now since this has come up he said he was scared and hit and kicked the door. My younger son said he just used his time to sleep and it didn’t bother him. Effective for one not so for the other. The law states that an adult must be in there. Now let’s have say an adjustment counselor in there helping them to resolve issues, give the child more tools to put into their tool box so when problems arise in the future as they inevitably will they can access this knowledge. This can’t be done by sticking a kid in solitary confinement ! Hello! These kids will grow up and be a part of our community! I think we need to treat them likely and and teach them how to be civilized good world citizens.

I read an article that the advocate put out about Holyoke schools and abuse against special needs students! This is our most fragile growing  sector of our communities. Another recent case of abuse was exposed in Northampton school.

I understand how difficult it is to parent and teach kids with developmental issues. There are too many situations happening that need to be overhauled so we can get back to learning. One comment left said well what about these kids that are coming from abusive homes or poor nutrition or or or. They still deserve education and to feel safe.  And because they may come from abusive poor homes does not mean we can let the schools get away with abusive behavior too. Corporal punishment went away for a reason.

What about an overhaul of the system thT is ineffective and not working? Stop teaching to test and teach for the love of learning! Let’s face it the teachers hate it and so don’t the kids! That could be the cause of rising problems in education!  Trying to fit everyone in a box how about filling those boxes withe dirt and planting seeds and watching them grow?

Leverett schools took my youngest son who had gotten way out of control in Newton street schools and had a host of in resolved educational problems and helped. They were amazing! They got him a Nuero psych, a behavior consultation from a psychiatrist and put into place an I e p that helps him to this day! They taught me how to advocate for him what works well for him. He learns best in a small classroom.

Some parents have said that we don’t know how to parent we don’t beAt the kids… The list goes on. With all the rising environmental toxins and poor education that doesn’t fit our kids unlimited  technology doesn’t help we do look to the professionals to do the right thing.  I guess we are all at a loss if we don’t solve these problems as children grow and become independent adults without having the ability to solve problems. They are looking to self medicate to numb pain and creating more problems in our community.

Colrain woman weaves dreams in pitchforks

again, I will happily paint a mural and or donate a dream catcher for this calm room at Hill crest school. Let’s be part of the solution not part of the problem!!

! There are a lot of really mean people in this world my goodness!!! I am not even going to respond to them personally because it takes to much time and energy and I would rather feed into a positive solution than go to war with here is only a couple: turtle boy who had to resign from his position as a history teacher because he sexually harassed woman at a Patriots game. Turtle boy ( don’t turtles hide from everything?) who posted pics of myself and friends and customers as if he knows us! Taking absolutely everything out of context as if I write everything personal on my Facebook page lol or Cindy who I went to school with who never birthed any children from her own womb and I had to unfriend from my face book for her racist rants and name calling. I am getting terribly hurtful publicity for posting pictures you would not even believe the the harassment!

This is not about me but the dozens if not hundreds of people who have been effected by this room

 this picture was taken on Monday after the superintendent went on line to say it doesn’t exist. Ok so what you are seeing here in this photo is not real. Nor did they add a few pillows which did not stop this parents child from sustaining multiple concussions. I have heard from kids  aged from 5-7 /12-16/ 20’s. That were put in the calm down room and it has had adverse effects for the long term. Most states this is illegal for a child to be isolated without an adult social adjustment counselor to help them move past these challenging behaviors. This is a community where we trust the professionals to be professional and to know. Yes children can come from all different backgrounds with all kinds of socioeconomical statuses and behavior challenges that need help overcoming their challenges to become successful world citizens? What can we do with this failing school system that has no money? What can we all do to be part of the solution and not part of the problem? Let’s stop deflecting from the issues and make our community a better place to live. What can you do?

Tribal Gypsy/39

Writing an insightful song to infiltrate

the minds of humans

& well meaning beings

starting fires in your soul

lighting the darkside

forcing dignity

and mindful habits

Zeroing the production of waste

Minimizing coperate greed.

We all have our ways

of lying to ourselves

and deriving pleasure from pain

Filling our minds with positive vibrations

and the magik of creation

this Tribal Gypsy

dances on the graves

of descended masters kissing the fate of all I encounter

With a universal matrix of energy
