transformation



My life force feels like it is rushing through me these days, and it's all I can do to scribble it all down and snap the moments in hopes of catching as much of it as I can.  If feels so so good after such a long fallow season of gestation and going inward.  Where it once was muddled and and unclear, things are now coming into focus more and more.  It feels like I have finally popped my head above the clouds and can see for miles and miles and miles... all sunshine and sparkle, baby!  Thus the splash of glitter I just had to add here.

The evolution takes as long as it takes, and now it's time for me to dance into the work!  It feels utterly glorious, and also tremendously tender and new.  But in my heart there is some serious fire.  I know where I need to goto next and slowly I am taking steps to get there, trying to pace myself into an easy burn.

The new Love Letters project has been kicking my ass - in that good way, of course - as the entire community I had built over the last 10 years is turning over in such a mad rush of wild and loving hellos and swift and honorable goodbyes.  It's vulnerability of the highest order, this kind of letting go, but I am grateful for it all as I know I am getting closer and closer to finding my core community.  And you all feel... just, so open and delicious!  Blessed Be.

And so changes are afoot.

Wishstudio is officially a gorgeous wrap!  It's a mental thing for me more than anything, as I haven't really produced any work there in a while, but I've hung on to the idea of it all waiting to be sure it's really time to move on.  And it most definitely is.  All I have left to do is figure how to best preserve that work.  So many memories and so much growth happened there.  It will always be a part of who I am.

Onward I go! Into deep soul work that is truly tugging at me in so many juicy ways.  New doors are flying open.  The universe is saying, Yes!  Already so many beautiful seeds are being planted for 2015.   My life is singing to me many new songs.  Coming next, this space will have it's own real URL.

So stay tuned, fierce-heatrted beauties!  Things are happening, and I wouldn't want you to miss a thing.

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

what's in a name?

It’s May 14, 2020 and I’m on a transnational call with a social worker and translator of the SOS Children’s Village offices in South Korea. It’s 7pm my time and 9am the next day in Korea, which adds to the surreal quality of the moment. It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
