seems appropriate to share i finally had one of my weird dreams - about you - and it was just a few nights back. Widget couldn't or wouldn't sleep. You were sitting on a little foot stool in a hexagon tiled bathroom from my early 20's telling her the legend of all black cats sharing part of the same soul from the first original black cat of deep night(this is an actual Thing)while wearing red and white striped P.J.'s i had as a child. Onesies with a matching cap. in the dream I consciously thought 'deb gorr would never wear something like this. it's mass produced.' Widget was unimpressed by your sharing. She was wild and willful. i loved her.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti 1919 -2021 for all the words and all the rest best and most wondrous afternoon, never to be forgotten, at City Lights Books with J. after living out of our van for about a month or so in '82. this is the man who made me certain I... Continue reading

Surprise! Your heart has grown a new flower all on its own. What does it look like? Is this an actual flower of special meaning to you? or is it the bloom of something more intergalactic? a quietly radiant bloom of inner beauty? An imaginary hybrid? Continue reading

Buddleia flower essence helps our electrical circuitry, particularly within our more subtle bodies/fields of energy. Specifically, the Buddleia healing signature inter-relates with the wear and tear caused by neurological cut-outs and damaged neural circuitry. In my anecdotal experience(s) people with any kind of neuro-atypicality find this soothing. I work with... Continue reading

Magenta hollyhock at the old place. The dive's working with an essence made from this plant in the same season as the photograph, but from different flowers. Today we have the Avett Brothers singing Ain't No Man two ways. Nobody's surprised, right? Watch: One of the best 'tasks' I had... Continue reading

I love when themes/words recur - especially in this kind of context. For years I thought of 'unstruck' pertaining to an un-rung bell or gong - maybe filtering up for 'striking' at the throat level? Not sure why it took me so long to put it together. I re-read stuff now that I read then and it's right in front of me. Guess I needed the time to learn how to embody unstruck-ness more before I could get it! Radicchio is one of my favorite plants to photograph. The leaves hold light and shadow in some really special ways. Also love enormous rainbow swiss chard leaves with afternoon sun filtering through.

Thanks Cheryl! I really enjoyed having a chance to use them in a different kind of context.

I really love the translation of the Sanskrit name (Anahata - which is also a very beautiful word) for the Heart Chakra. Unstruck. not unbroken/unbreakable or unbeaten/unbeatable. Not resilient, determined, brave, good or any of the more negative descriptors we all commonly hear, speak, or simply associate with the word... Continue reading

There's a natural bridge, energetically, between the lower primary chakras and the heart center. A similar bridge exists between the heart and the elevated/head chakras of voice, vision, and inter-personal/galactic/spiritual illumination. The bridge between survival, polarity, volition, and unencumbered open-heart space/brain/mind is super important. A lot of people try to... Continue reading

Today this space is sunlit and elevated for the shift that's coming with the Aquarian new moon. Am thinking about what metaphorical seeds I want to plant then. Also note the background glimpse of an area in the room that I think of as collage fodder purgatory. Haven't looked at... Continue reading

I'm offline for a little while and hopefully not a lot. we'll see. not unforeseen but never remotely easy. dealing with cumulative fallout from my life's biggest recurring heartbreak. not drama queening.

anyone who comes here to work - or primarily complain about how much of that they'll have to do - mentions, without fail 'the vegetation'. Even in the dead of winter they remember what it's like in the growing season and mention it. without fail. I'm always like "uh-huh. so?"
