Finding new inspirations. I did a test run of several more tribal-esque designs while in Brooklyn and completely sold out. So I patiently awaited more supplies to arrive on a very tight budget and gather the will power to sit my butt at a work table rather than bask in coffee shop patios and beaches but alas some new things emerge

I get all excited about new paths of creativity and unfortunately most of the time i run into some sort of discouragement or the feeling of being walked all over but, optimistically, i find another niche to call my own.

My house has been referred to some what of a green house as the succulents and cacti slowly overtake the house.

My newest succulent garden arranged by me, plants from Tiger Lily.
I am IN LOVE with this design by EarthSeaWarrior

because when you run out of table space the only way to go is up!
Our Garden is that of a small farm and I'm beginning to reap in the bounty.
Every day I go out and grab a few Kale leaves for my juice and have quite the dip spread and of course, round of mojito's, with the herbs.

You are immortal
Your body is here for only a short time
You are a child of creator
And the mother earth
A miracle
A walking rainbow of colors
As children of earth and sky
It is our challenge to bring love and light to the earth

I finally have the chance to wade through the pile of cards I grabbed while browsing Renegade Brooklyn.
Some of my favorites:

Biata Roytburd

I love the concept behind her work. At her booth she had life size Head Planters I really wanted to buy.


Theres a special place in my heart for metal work. Especially metalwork involving serpents and crystals


It makes me want to climb some hills and have a picnic.

The Tower

It was 80 degrees.
The sky full of sun.
We were driving through the Pocono mountains with all the windows down.
The car was full of owl feathers and birch bark and of course
a snake

I pulled out the tower
"A defensive crown once isolated me from the world.
A cork of old words covered my mind and clouds of crystallized,mummified, sclerotic feelings
cast a shadow over my heartbeats
and prevented the light from emerging.
A thick cloak of desires transformed my appetite for life into a jailer
I was flesh without God
consuming itself in the flames of its own existence
My ego converted into a prison
Despising myself, isolating myself, believing I was defending an inner territoty belonging only to me
who was I in the darkness of this tower?
Master of what?
What was my appearance, what false identity?
I was nothing but the rarefied air of an egotistical obscurity.
And suddenly from both inside and outside, a nameless force emerged
the love that sustains all matter
My top opened as well ad my inmost depths
The combined energies of Heaven and matter crossed through me like a hurricane.
I knew the burning of the center of the Earth
the light from the center of the universe.
I received the vibrating universal axis
I was no longer a tower but a channel

Like a queen Bee, I began to engender joyful beings.
I knew that I could burst, that each of my bricks would travel through infinity like a bird.

I was the central pillar of a cosmic dance.

I was quite simply the human body in full reception of its original energy"
