Tonight I am dreaming of a place that can only exist in my mind right now. A place that I have never been to, but know of its beauty and magic and that it welcomes me with an expansive sky and ocean water bluer than I have ever seen. This place is the thing dreams are made of - a dream I had many, many years ago; swaying in a hammock beside the sea and the grass was so green and my spirit felt at peace. All I could do was smile. This dream may be closer to reality than I think. I can only hope, as reality has become so gray.

Hello everyone! I have a very important announcement to make! I've just opened an Etsy shop called A Goddess Garden - trinkets and treasure for goddesses, mermaids and fairy changeling girls. This is the first step on my creative journey and living my creative dreams, so I'm really excited. There are more goodies in the works and much bigger plans to accompany the Etsy shop. Stay tuned!

In every interview I’ve ever been in I get asked, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” I always answer with something that pertains to the company I’m interviewing with, but if I were to be hooked up to a lie detector during that answer, the lines would be off the chart. Deep down inside I don’t want to be working for anyone but myself in five years. Even a year from now I’d love to be financially independent and using my gifts while helping people in the process. I just feel like it’s a waste of time to be sitting in an office most of the day. Think of all the things I could be doing!
Last night I was sitting outside and imagining myself as an old woman looking back at her life and thinking, I wish I would’ve started living my dreams sooner. I don’t want to be that woman. I want to enjoy life now! Not wait until I’m 65.
No matter how good my job is now, it will never satisfy me; it will never fulfill my creative dreams; it will never be what I truly want. I have a higher purpose and I refuse to lose sight of it because the world (or maybe just America) says I have to work a traditional job to “get by.”

From: Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence, by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin
“Conditions have changed, but we are still operating financially by the rules established during the Industrial Revolution – rules based on creating more material possessions. But our high standard of living has not led to a high quality of life – for us or for the planet.”
I’m changing my thoughts about money, spending, the “American dream,” my priorities, and what it means to work and live. Life’s too short to mess around. I’m not meant to do the 8-5 thing; no one is. I’ve told myself this time and time again, but I keep repeating old ways of thinking. I’m convinced that neither I nor you have to slave away to enjoy life, to get what we want. Sitting in an office for 8 hours is no way to live. It’s not the way I want to live, and I don’t believe God put me here to do so.
I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I do know that I have a lot of learning and research to do. It’s time to prepare for something greater. It’s time to really live!

with a pale moon.
The pink oleanders
tap outside my window,
cast shadows in the room.
I lie in bed,
wonder if my eyes will ever close
a flash of light darts across the sky.
Only from the corner of my eye
do I glimpse the quick glow
of something outside my window.
What could it be?
When I look closer I find
that it's not the sky alive with light,
but the oleanders housing little stars.
A still, dark sanctuary
blooming in luminosity.

She is natural, naked,
long tangled hair,
perfectly at ease in her body.
She has a pen in her hand.
Her legs and feet are strong.
Her heart big and delicate.
She doesn't care that she is naked
or that she may never see people again.
No need for makeup or clothes.
Just sunshine, flowers, good fruit,
and the words in her heart.

I left my heart in California.
In winter, my heart is devoured
My heart seeks me in all seasons
