Hello From The Other Side

I figured, since so many of you have left lovely letters in my inbox, that I'd update you on where I'm at. :) Since last we typed, I caught a virus which lead to an 'exacerbation' - basically, my asthma got uncontrollably worse due to the inflammation caused by the...

Your Piece Of The Work, And Mine. {with Video Diary}

NOTE: This post is part curated from my archives (the Bed Head Diaries), and part present day. The world is hugely heavy right now, and my life is hugely heavy. A purse dump of happenings: I am in the middle of a unexpected move, which is a positive change, (I have a...

Not What I Signed Up For, Or Is It?

Things have been really heavy, both 'out there' and 'in here' for me over the last couple of weeks, and I'm feeling the need to unpack some of it today. I am going to hone in on the 'out there' stuff. Please bear with me, because these thoughts are flying out of my...

We Did It!

Well, a bunch of us did it, or at least, did part of it! YAHOO! I ran out of steam nearing the end due to having way too much personal shit to deal with and not enough emotional energy to deal with anything else. But still! I managed to get most days in, and I...

Yielding Back In

I have not had many words about this last week or so in my life, and the words I have had have been mostly reserved for emails to my therapist, to the people involved, and my private journal, so blogging just didn't happen. I was about to apologize, but no. That is...

The Edge

Today (and yesterday) has been very traumatic for me. I've spent about 72 hours in a state of constant anxiety - verging on panic attack, swinging into panic attack, and then yielding out again. I am applying self-empathy liberally, and I've also been in touch with my...

Strength VIII {Poem}

Strength VIII She is all heart rage as she wraps pale hands around his muzzle and I'm all envy, watching. I know her secret but I don't have her power, to look unflinchingly beyond the fangs, to hear beyond the raging roar, to love beyond reason. I'm not crowned in...

Spring Is Done With Your Shenanigans, Winter

Since the weather outside has not been cooperating with my desire for spring, I did a little weather art/magick over a period of three days and painted my own version of how pissed off Spring is with Winter hanging around like it's been doing. She's mixed media. She...

Telling The Bees

Today, I thought I'd celebrate Friday with a speed painting of one of the spreads I did for Book Of Days not long ago. Here you go. MUSIC BY KRYSTYN PIXTON who you need to know, because GORGEOUS! I'm making some changes in my life that are making me incredibly...

Blog Along With Effy – Day #17 – Woman Down

I spent my morning eyeballs deep in art, which pleases me to no end. I have been feeling a little lack of mojo taking hold, and I really wasn't sure I had it in me to film, but I did the usual - sat down, set an intention, and went for it. A few weeks ago, I came...

Blog Along With Effy – Day #14 – How To Begin

This is another repost because I'm taking today off. That being said, it's a pretty valuable repost! Enjoy! One of the questions I hear most often is “How do you start a journal page?” I sit down, pick up the first thing that attracts me, and I make a mark. Sometimes,...
