What I see with my little eyes, are “still-life” magical corners of my home. Where streams of sunlight penetrate the kitchen. I might take a photo-a-day of the same spot. my little fairy corner of the kitchen. The plants love the light and warmth of the kitchen.
Mysteries are everywhere! Just the way that we manage to change the energy and emotions that we wake up with and express in your day. I find energy to be a very mysterious thing. The energy’s intangible. It’s invisible to the eye and yet we can all feel it. It’s a mystery how other people’s emotions can affect us and how our emotions and actions can affect theirs.
I’m a big believer in energy work, from gratitude is an attitude two practicing patience and perseverance. These are lifestyle choices and also a form of belief. During the past three years, it has been difficult to practice abundance and gratitude when it feels like every day is the end of the world. I believe that many of us have had a drastic change in our programming. Many of us have experienced complete city lockdowns. Creating much smaller circles and communities. Changing our brain programming and instilling a sense of doom and fear. It’s been a mystery to see how resilient we are as human beings and how the past three years have changed so many of us.
I hope that you have managed to work with your energy and create the art you want to see in the world.

In today’s world, it seems like self-healing would be more practical but less fun.
Fire breathing came in third. It could be handy but often enough will be misinterpreted as „such an intense person to be around“. So I had to cross that one out of my desires for superpowers. Although I am always cold at night and it might be a solution for that.
Got to continue to work on my daily superpower of persistence and perseverance in developing my creative works.
As a person who travels around the world and has had homes in three different cultures. I’ve always found it interesting how beautiful and sustainable neighborhoods and communities are. When we live within them, shop within them, support them and become a part of this circle.
This is one of the reasons why I do not shop online often. And certainly not Amazon. I have found that going out of my way is staying on the path. 🦀 Fortunately I do not have a physical disability so I can run downstairs and go to my local bakery or go to my local clothing designer. Yes, sometimes these things are a tiny bit more expensive. But the quality is so much better the connection is so important and the Value that I am receiving is often shopping once and owning an item of quality forever. This matters to me.
I’ve learned throughout the years. in my 20s I didn’t care I wanted it affordable and fashionable I was into quick fashion. presently I’m in my 40s. I’ve learned a lot and to me sustainability and a lifestyle that has a connection to the earth to caring about the products that I consume. The support I offer and receive is priceless. Caring about the people that I shop from and cross paths with not intimately but as a community member is something I am passionate about.
The biggest challenge I faced, in my opinion, is when I had a miscarriage I was in my 30s I was engaged and I had never wanted children. Due to the good company the supportive partner and the possibility of this magical unity, I went forward with having a pregnancy. So far for the first time, I had changed my stance on pregnancy since my teenage years. Where I announces with much force than I was for abortion rights but I was for women having ownership over their bodies but I was not conservative not straight those years at the farm so much of who I am today but this choice reversing this choice was big and then I had a miscarriage and spiraled emotionally and physically. I wish more people had spoken to me about miscarriages I don’t have enough time to write more about this today but I will return to this post. And I have surpassed it and it’s made me a greater person and I’ve explored the world and I found that being single is for me!
This question immediately brings up gender inequality, memories, and the pursuit of happiness, for I am a woman who lives life by her own rules. I have always lived boldly I have always lived fiercely, but being female & a minority, I often have been treated as if this equates to lousy behavior. My boldness has been considered rude instead of a strength.
What is golden and admirable for one gender has been seen and socialized as rude for women minorities and other (they them) boldness is seen as too much and Over the top behavior. We should raise little girls to live a bold existence to have not only a passion for expression and this includes being able to say no without an explanation that is the confidence that is what we expect and respects about each other when I say no, but I also have to be apologetic, or embarrassed which I will not be! My no, it’s clear one word a bold no I live life boldly I pursue my dreams. Sometimes I get lost in this pursuit in a forest of Creative confusion. Still, amongst all of these choices, I have fought for the freedom to be a sassy, bold, wild woman. I have immigrated to countries where I am respected for my independence and expected to marry and bear children!
If you want to catch me on stage being bold, come to Sunday Slips open mic. Every Sunday no matter what! Or my solo show Allein!
Gratitude gratitude gratitude gratitude this is a daily practice I’ve been doing for a long time. Usually, I wait till the end of the night, and I write in my tiny little notebook the things that I’m grateful for in the day. There’s always repeat things, and they are days that have surprises
There’s a list of people I’m grateful for during this pandemic. These people have become even more critical to my mental health and physical well-being. My best friend Winton Kelly Stevenson is a person I cannot imagine my life without! My creative partner Marta Marquez woman has shared adventures with me since our early 20s, and now we are reliving that in Berlin in our 40s! My family checks in on me and brings me a sense of grounding. Even though they are far away, love is always felt. There are many more people I want to be grateful for, but this list is different.
Today, in particular, I am grateful that I was inspired to leave the house and visit a friend. It’s sometimes challenging to exit my apartment, my little sanctuary, a place that I am also grateful for. During the winter months, it’s easy to stay indoors for a more extended period. And now, with so many restrictions in place home is certainly where the heart is.
My cat!!!! Massive Geoforschung this little soulful companion
