Collection of Poetry, Thoughts and Essays
"Trapped in a technoLOGICAL matrix
Where dis information breeds distraction
Humans buzz along in the busy-ness of business
making mentally driven decisions
that perpetuate the sickness of “mine” vs ours…
disEases of distortion to separate us
from the Earth & the stars...."
The Eternal Well
"Within in my being there is an eternal well…
a place where Source drinks & replenishes self.
From these depths emerges an essence
The fusion of form with a fountain of Presence
Into an Endless Stream of Perpetual Birth..."

"One at the heart of the mirror
where our dreams can convene
To birth the infinite into the earth
from all of the love that we’ve seen..."
"2012- The Doorway of Infinite Potential"
"...We’ve arrived! Welcome to the future of our ancient past…to the PRESENT dawning of an era that has glimmered in our heArts and souls for eons…a memory of what is possible when we reMember. Humanity is FINALLY remembering. Tides of transformation are sweeping through our lives, our dreams, our communities, our world and our collective consciousness. So vastly have I contemplated this prophesied time with passionate intrigue and quest for transcendental truth…!"
"I believe that artists are the mapmakers of the collective mythos, illuminating the expansive pathways back to our shared Source through visions that nourish and inspire. The role of the “visionary artist” is to reveal the hidden, inner and outer universes of Creation…to make visible both multidimensional and archetypal realms of our waking/dream realities through an emotional language of color, form, pattern and symbolism. Hermann Hesse once said, “All images are open gates through which the soul may enter when it is ready. Here you and me and everything is all one.”
Honoring My Maga Donna
"I just spoke with my Maga (grandma) on the phone for two hours. She sounded as youthful and blissful as ever. We spoke about synchronicities, art, gypsy wagons, urban farming, crystal children and doing what you LOVE. Ended the convo with her telling me that she hopes tonight goes better than I could have ever dreamt it so. Awwwww...She has been one of the biggest guiding inspirations in my life and my artist path. She gave me my first easel when i was a child and always encouraged my creative spirit to play. She took me on special "trips" to art museums and inspired innovative ways to recycle ANYTHING into art. She taught me that there is no limit to our creativity, that art is a WAY of life and an appreciation for inspiration that surrounds us always. She taught me that we are all creators at heart and not to take ourselves too seriously. With deepest gratitude and honor, I want to recognize my grandmother for the incredible matriarch that she is. She represents the gentle but wild archetype of the creative divine feminine. Nurturing, wise, colorful, empowered, intuitive, passionate, timeless, selfless, humble, silly and absolutely beautiful inside and out.... May we all always remember to honor our elders and take to heart the wisdom they hold. mitakuye oyasin! Aho! Hey ya!"
