There once was a girl who wished desperately that she was a wolf.
She always dreamed of being a raven soaring and feeling the wind through her feathers but her heart beat deep down in her soul for the heart of the earth. Where she could run and howl until her fill.
Until one night she howled so longingly at the moon her heart burst and soared all the way up to the moon.
Never to come back.
For running with the stars provided to be too delightful. She could howl, run and when she wanted soar. Reflections.

when the universe keeps leading you back to the same path- no matter how many times you detour or delay. It’s a sign to stop mending the wings you have & start strengthening them. it’s time to step to the edge. it’s time to leap. it’s time to fly.

I want to disappear amongst the wood & fog.
I want to appear in the mist.
Feel it kiss my skin.
I want moonlight to caress every inch.
I want to fly- nein- soar below/ below/ below. .

This year will be a year of success for me. Letting go of all the toxic darkness that threatens my light has given space for me to love myself. All the way down to the molecules, cells & atoms of my very essence. It’s a liberating feeling- looking at this photo and not cringing- seeing all the flaws that society may say are what make me unworthy & seeing what they really are- the road map of my success. So I do not cringe- instead I lock my heart in a defiant embrace and plunge head first into the darkness still there- for if there is no darkness how does one see the light?

My NY resolution is to explore myself while in front of the camera instead of behind it.
Thank you Kelly 📷: @visualvalor .

Look at that girl- she’s happy!
it’s amazing what happens when you let go & love yourself deeply..
even if it’s for just a short while- it’s a monumental victory in the long game of life. it’s like a Christmas present when you open it up- let it out! it’s like coming home to yourself & finding that grounding contentment.

Happiest Christmas! So much love & light to you all!✨💕✨
GO BE HAPPY.
LOVE YOURSELF DEEPLY.
ALWAYS.

Thank you Kelly- you’re a joy in my life! 📷: @visualvalor .

Sitting in my kitchen:
- So the door to my garage is open.
- I hear a noise- sounds like screamo emo music threw the wall from next door?
- Then I hear ‘I’M FINE! I’M FINE! I’M FINE!’
- Upon further investigation- no screamo emo singing.
- NOPE! it’s just the noise of my washer.
- HELLO ANXIETY! It’s like I almost forgot about you- just kidding- you never go away.
- First conscience thought I can relate to you Ms. Whirlpool. your doing great! keep up the hustle.
- Second thought- make a weird post.
-Don’t forget to practice some much needed self care today & everyday. Recharge with good energy & surround yourself with light.✨💕✨

the world is always softer & easier to receive whilst lying on one’s side.

Kinetic Energy
-noun physics
1. the energy of a body or a system with respect to the motion of the body or of the particles in the system.
I feel the deep call to shed my pelt and truly be free. the energy is humming. all around. can you feel it? if only the darkness didn’t swallow so much light. might we find the hole & tumble in.

this heat got me fucked up.
cold showers can't numb me enough.
green smoke helps me melt into the heat.
become one with it. trying to escape it.
trying to become hotter that it.
forever holding onto the ice in my veins.

the crystal. stark. clear. clarity
the lush. deep. rich. calming. grounding
the vast. wide. kaleidoscope. reach
the warm. velvet. endless. open
these are the feels of my awakening.

enlighten moments out-side- my comfort zone and realizing. I am ok. I am human. I am entitled to this needed growth and exploring that my energy is calling for. I want this change. nein. I WILL have this change.

852,037,704= the number of seconds I have taken up space.
it's a funny feeling growing older but not ever being as old as you feel. this particular second is being used to soak up as much of this very amazing full moon's charged energy- thanks to capricorn. lifting & twirling a sparkler seals the feeling of the tide making it's completion. a new sun will rise. I will be still stuck in this second. a new wonderfully adulting fire will need to be put out. I will be reminiscing on a couple hundred seconds ago when my life was measured by the moons light & how it soothes me. it's a funny feeling being older & yet feeling like your being reborn.

that moment you realize your heart just wants to be released. you want your bare feet rooted in the earth and your third eye so open it makes tears stream down your face. that if only that powerful light in you can been seen by all and valued. that your not small. it's hard to let go- that feeling of being trapped is sometimes easier. .

This amazing woman is the one who gave me my first film Nikon & encouraged me to start expressing myself through photography. She has been there as a true friend without judgement or unrealistic expectations. I can't really put into words how much she means to me- there is too much history, love & growth. It's crazy how one person can alter the perception you have of yourself- in the most positive way possible- acceptance. Thank you for always keeping my belly/heart & life full. .

I will read ashes for you, if you ask me.
I will look on the fire and tell you from the gray lashes
And out of the red and black tongues and stripes,
I will tell how fire comes
And how fire runs far as the sea.- Carl Sandburg.

My heart aches for the future mother earth really deserves. My feet bare on the earth feel her weeping and hoping.

You'll be waiting in vain, I've got nothing for you to gain.

I feel the energy seeping from where my heart's little cracks and splits are no longer being held together. it's a feeling I am trying to accept and repel at the same time.
