Stone-at-Pine-Mountain-Lake

Nature inspires all areas of my life... Throughout the past four decades, Nature has not only been my greatest teacher, but also my greatest inspiration!... Every aspect of my life is highly influenced by Nature - my work, my clothing, how I adorn myself, how I decorate everything from journals to spaces (even inside my car), places of residence, my environment, my artistic co-creations, my relationships and connections... Nothing I do, am or have, isn't touched by Nature in some way... … [Read more...]

Red-Tailed-Hawk-birthday-appearance

Moments that make "time" stop and emphasize the magick and divinity of life... On the day of my birthday, March 14th, we were driving up and up in elevation through the glorious Yosemite Nat'l Park. We planned to go on a full hike, further than we'd been before in our beloved Mariposa Grove (where so many of the giant tree beings, like Giant Sequoias, Sugar Pines and Redwoods stand majestically throughout the forest)... Red-Tailed Hawk has been a dear power animal of mine since I left my … [Read more...]

Pileated-woodpecker-on-tree-in-Mariposa-Grove-Yosemite

Purposeful life and death... The cycles of life are so obvious in Nature and change is a daily occurrence. It's obvious in natural environments that nothing exists without purpose... Even death has great purpose... During one of many glorious hikes at over 6,000 feet in elevation in Yosemite Nat'l Park, a constant drumming sound echoed throughout the forest... Looking way up at this dead tree, I discovered the drummer - a pileated woodpecker, perched near the top, carving a circular … [Read more...]

tree-seedling-growing-its-own-way

Inner knowing... Within our sacred hearts, we all know our own paths and what's aligned with our unique journeys... It doesn't look like anyone else's and it's not the easiest path to take... However, it's always fulfilling in the most profound ways... Nature teaches us this is no many ways... When we have the courage and determination to do what we know we must, regardless of what that might look like, we create sacred space for ourselves to fully grow into our highest potential … [Read more...]

Giant-Sequoia-scarred

Sculptures of resilience in Nature... This is one of the many Giant Sequoia tree beings that I encountered high up in Yosemite Nat'l Park at he Mariposa Grove... What struck me about this one, along with many others, was the scarring on its immense body, created with forest fires and self-healing of its bark... The largest of these trees are more than 2,000 years old and on average, it's said that there's a forest fire every 20 years... so imagine how many fires these trees endure and … [Read more...]

Sequoia-pinecone

An entire grove resides in the palm of my hand!... When I was hiking through the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite National Park (California, USA), and encountered some of the oldest and largest Tree Beings in the world... I was left in absolute AWE to see how SMALL their pinecones are!!!... I've seen all types of pinecones, and just assumed that they were proportionate to the size of the tree... smaller trees have smaller pinecones and bigger ones produce big pinecones... Well, Nature never … [Read more...]

Lucille-and-Sequoias-at-Mariposa-Grove

The season dances into a new one today!... For those of us in the northern hemisphere, Spring officially arrives today... for those of the southern hemisphere, Autumn officially arrives today... I wish you a wonderful Equinox wherever you are! For me, it felt like Spring arrived on March 3rd when I landed in California and experienced the glorious landscape and wildlife (including the song of robins by day and frogs by night) in the Yosemite Nat'l Park area where I was for 2 glorious … [Read more...]

BOOK-front-cover

Magickal New Moon Day to you!... (((  ))) I felt this would be the perfect day to announce that starting Monday, I'm taking the next 2 weeks completely OFF from computers and phones (yes!) and fully immersing myself in Nature at Yosemite Nat'l Park to connect with the pristine forests of Redwoods, Giant Sequoias and other natural wonders there! It's going to be soooo DIVINE!... It's now time for me to fully recharge so I'll be ready for my book's launch. Since I can't give a date yet, I'm … [Read more...]
