    If we keep dreams alive, we live within a magical world. One we spend our adult lives chasing and searching for. It is in the magic of children playing, it is in the sounds of the magnificent ocean or the mountain tops. Each flower blooming is magical and we only need to open our eyes and look right now to see it around us. We dull our sight after years, tell ourselves it is time to be a grown up now... but what are we doing? We are taking the magic of life away when we do that, and what is life without magic? Be here and be now in the moment.

    I have not posted much over the past few months... Reflecting over this yearly break from teaching I admit that this summer kicked my butt in more ways than one. It’s been since May or even before then that I worked in my studio – I can’t remember the last time I made something with my hands besides culinary exploits and laundry origami. Sometimes life comes out of nowhere and smacks you upside the head… that first wallop is a doozy and stops you in your tracks, opens your eyes that are watery from the stinging buzz from the blow and you see… or at least you think you see but it’s not until the third or even fifth jolt of harsh reality checks that you become a bit delusional and woozy and maybe even giddy from the pain and frustration. 
I still haven’t been back into my studio besides a couple days of attempting to clean and organize what become a depository for things I didn’t feel like dealing with… whether they were physical objects, obligations of any and all sorts, emotional baggage, professional setbacks or family trauma… shattered dreams.

But then after treading water for what seems like eternity you stop and float, buoy up and begin to heal and learn and revisit who you used to be and see the authentic version of yourself that you want to be, and you begin. Begin to pick yourself up, lick your wounds, wipe the dust from your eyes and dismiss self-doubt from your thoughts.

You look for signs… I found feathers and acorns made their way into my life. Message from angels, my animal and spirit guides – symbolic of travel, divinity, spirit, a connection from the other side of life… freedom, inspiration, goddess and gods of the skies… HOPE. Symbols of strength and potential, acorns also a Nordic and Celtic symbol of fertility, and immortality…the word Druid can be translated as "Oak Knowledge". I pick up red feathers in my dreams which represents courage, strength, stability and good fortune.

The forces watching over me are sending comfort to let me know how strong I am.

    Yesterday was wearing me down but I’m picking myself up today. Just need to brush the dust off my skirt and fix my hair 😉

It’s important to reach out if you need help. I’m so used to helping others I find it hard to seek or accept it myself. I had been trying to work out a problem by myself for weeks. I finally took to social media to see if anyone could help and the advice given made me feel better about what I have to do. I love my fellow teachers ❤️

    ✨💕✨ I wrote my first zine 23 years ago. This is my newest addition to my collection! In this zine you’ll fine my experience with chronic illness, what is magic to me and how my relationship with it intersects with my daily life. I’ve included recipes, altar suggestions and other goods. 🔮 this zine could essentially be a tiny chapter of a book.. but I hope it’s at the very least a continuation of my zine writing days, the “adult” version. 💕 link in profile to purchase, along with new prints ✨ #magic #zine #loveyou

    You know you’ve absolutely smashed Disneyland when your son burst into tears as your getting on the Eurostar home because he “never wants to leave”. We did get a few funny looks when @erindacey11 joined in with him!🥺😜 #magic

    Quanta bellezza silenziosa nasconde il mondo mentre la bruttezza fa così rumore.
Siamo così abituati alla disillusione da non accorgerci che le stelle sono tutte lì ad osservarci, che le tartarughe continuano a nascere senza chiederci il permesso, che le balene passano ancora di qui e che possiamo avere il privilegio di vederle, che il verde conquista il proprio spazio continuamente, foglia dopo foglia.
C’è così tanta tenerezza in una vita che nasce: un pesce, una conchiglia, una pianta, una libellula e così tanta fatica da contenere una parte di universo, così come in una vita che muore e lascia qualcosa di se, un significato nuovo, un’impronta.
Qui in Giappone ho visto scenari così lontani e perfetti da avere la percezione dell’astronauta di “overview effect”, l’effetto della veduta d’insieme. “Dallo spazio”, sostengono gli astronauti, “i confini nazionali svaniscono, i conflitti che dividono le persone diventano meno importanti, e la necessità di creare una società planetaria con la volontà unitaria di proteggere questo "pallido punto azzurro nello Spazio" diventa evidente ed imperativo.”
