WINTER SOLSTICE ~ The Winter Is Here’

This past year has been quite wild. Much growth, which brought up doubt and fear. Bringing borders to cross and others to get to know better. Winter is here and since last year’s winter it has introduced me to a new space. A space for resting, pausing, reflecting, exhaling, painting… Expressing myself is what feelsMeer lezen over “WINTER SOLSTICE ~ The Winter Is Here’”

Extra Hours Of Darkness

What a dense couple of weeks. They were full of emotion, over-stimulation, exhaustion. My mind has been so full, too full. I am trying to detangle my mind, I am trying to quiet my mind. Somewhere in the last few months I stopped sitting down with myself, a time where I would calm my mind,Meer lezen over “Extra Hours Of Darkness”

In the midst of the season of change

Shorter days and longer nights, they invite me to turn inwards. To turn quiet and to feel. To feel what needs my attention, what needs care, what needs tending. It is time to rediscover my own pace, to remember action speaks louder than words but this too is asking me to follow my own pace.Meer lezen over “In the midst of the season of change”

Moments of Autumn

And there came Autumn… sweeping me up, taking me along by the hand, reintroducing me, us all really, to change. Autumn used to be this unpleasant announcement to cooler winds, rain, the change in the air and the inevitable reminder of having to let go. I never quite understood why people enjoyed this season becauseMeer lezen over “Moments of Autumn”

When Autumn knocks on my door

Summer came bursting, warm and sometimes hot, blooming and bright. A time I promised myself to rest and to be productive. To take it slow, to go outside and enjoy the sun but to also work on my ideas I have for a Velvet Uproar. I didn’t always manage to balance rest and productivity equallyMeer lezen over “When Autumn knocks on my door”

Remnants of Summer

For a long time, words have not come out as easily, as willingly, as necessary. This summer was a lot about being, enjoying, working outside, settling into our new home and breathing out. As september came, so did the cooler nights and the necessity of making a fire each night. It feels so magical. IMeer lezen over “Remnants of Summer”

What Mama Earth Showed Me Part 3

(Both photos, pictured above, were taken in ‘het Hunebed Centrum’) It has been a little while since I last wrote as part of this series. Lots has been brewing and taking shape ‘behind the scenes’. I was living and still am living in a space where it isn’t much about sharing yet. Instead it isMeer lezen over “What Mama Earth Showed Me Part 3”

What Mama Earth Showed Me Part 2

It’s interesting if you ask me, the way it all works. I have never listened as closely to myself as I do now. Never followed or even allowed my own pace as I do now, never trusted my intuition and my gut feeling as much as I do now and never before has it AllMeer lezen over “What Mama Earth Showed Me Part 2”

What Mama Earth Showed Me

Two years after my long term travels came to an end, seeing its purpose becomes easier and clearer. The distance between then and now keeps expanding, time has brought me space to move through. Combined together I traveled for almost two and half years. Through parts of southern Europe and through a part of SouthMeer lezen over “What Mama Earth Showed Me”

The Dance of Spring

There she is, Spring. Along with her came her dance of change. This past month asked me to become quiet. To merely feel and to move along with it and through it All. The wind brought along new whispers, the Sun brought his dance of warmth, the Earth performs her dance of growth. Moments whereMeer lezen over “The Dance of Spring”
