So You Wanna Know More ...
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been out of step with society. As a kid, I was isolated for going my own way and not bowing to the pressure of the status quo. Although I respected legitimate authority (and still do), I had no tolerance for mindless conformity, controls or condemnation. I still don’t.
I deeply believe in each person’s right to decide for themselves what path they’re going to walk. I can’t claim the freedom to journey for myself and deny it to others.
I may not agree with someone’s values or share their position, but I don’t have to. Their path is their responsibility; mine is mine. We each have to walk in what we believe to be true any given moment.
Moment to moment, that’s literally the best we can do, a practical and doable Integrity.
Raised a fundamentalist Christian, much of the foundational essence remains … but chunks of its form and framework have melted away on my alchemical journey. I am and ever will be a Pursuer of God. It’s the ultimate adventure and most pure devotion … belonging personified.
My work background is Administration. I’m good with details and efficiency, yet my view of the world is very panoramic. I’m curious about how things work … and why. This understanding helps me cut the extraneous and get down to my own manifestation: ‘…calling those things that are not as though they are.’
Truth and Beauty are twin core values. Taking responsibility and practicing courage have saved me repeatedly from victim mode and delivered me to the door of my own Sovereign Power.
I love reading, writing, enjoying the funny, photography, music, art, breakthroughs in science that question the very fabric of reality, deep soul conversations, and the do-over potential of a new day.
And … candlelight, cloudy days, my low-acid coffee, and right now? The Walking Dead. Pretty darn invested, even though I know they can’t all make it. Which is a deep lesson for every single thing:
Non-attachment. Yeaah. Still working on that one.
I LOVE to travel. So far, I’ve been to Israel, Ireland, Scotland, and England – my Soul Pilgrimages. 99% of the photos on this blog are mine, taken as I traipse over the world. I’m giddy over that ’cause I do love making art from the stuff of life.
Also … I lose myself in the study of archetypes, essence, and the wisdom whispered by Creation … in contemplating the vastness of space and the unchartered interior of the Soul.
The idea that whatever wisdom I’ve gained could help others find hope, dissolve chains, and take hold of sovereign power? A most sacred trust … Joy UNSPEAKABLE.
I. LOVE. THIS. LIFE. It’s precious and full of holy opportunity to grow and comfort and spread Itself.
All this time, I’ve freely received. Now it’s time to freely give.
