Hello, and welcome to my corner of this portal of light we call the Internet. My name is Effy ‘Bird’ Wild, (she/her, INFJ, Libra with Libra rising and a Cap moon, soul number 9, in case you were curious) and I am an artist, writer, and teacher. I believe I was put on this earth to hold space for the part of you that yearns to be creative, and through creativity, come into alignment with your best, most healed, most authentic self.

By some awesome stroke of luck, I have managed to gather the most loving, compassionate, authentic, and inspiring community around what I do, and if you’re here, I’d be willing to bet you’re one of them. Why don’t you join us? 

 

 

Presence

Presence

I. This giveaway ends on Monday, so get in there if you want a seat in Renee's new thing. I am *very* excited to be writing with Renee in Wild Musings, and I know you will love it, too. II. I got some work done yesterday and then invited Kimi over to sit on the lawn...

Alive In Hope

Alive In Hope

I. There's a lot I want to say about Anthony Bourdain but I'm not ready so I'm just putting this in here as a placeholder and a reminder to self. Write it out, bebe. When you're ready. II. This giveaway will close on Sunday. Get your name in. III. I painted this ahead...

Wild Musings + Giveaway

Wild Musings + Giveaway

I. I spent a few days in the studio puttering around and doing art for myself and it was gorgeous. II. I ducked out of socials and anything too stressful so I could find my way back to some kind of center. I think there's some energy in the collective around our...

Reaching

Reaching

I. The sun is supposed to come out - at least partially - at about 11 a.m. this morning, and I'm craving it. Then, another five days of rain in the forecast. At least it isn't sweltering here. II. Did a bunch of work yesterday and then settled into my studio with a...

Brighter Days Ahead

Brighter Days Ahead

I. Yesterday's total shut down to rest and recoup after my oops was excellent. I watched a LOT of TikTok, checked in with beloveds, and did nothing productive. This wee TikTok that I made makes me laugh out loud. Those lips? That's a filter, but it did make me think...

Oops.

Oops.

I. I'm not feeling the hottest today because I went over the "microdose" line into a "minidose" of Golden Teacher during a moon in moonchild and got sideswiped by all my feels. All of them. All at once. Airy sat with me over text sending me songs for hours, and then...

Purse Dump

Purse Dump

I. I do purse dumps like this whenever I have no idea how to reemerge from a long period of silence. It is just like dumping a purse out on the table so you can get rid of the old balls of Kleenex, the empty box of Altoids, the lipstick you no longer wear, the...

The Last Leg

The Last Leg

I wrote this for my patrons today and thought I'd share it here as well since it sums things up.  Things are kinda weird right now. I've had my first shot and then the gov walked back the vaccine they gave me so I have no idea what's happening for my second shot. I've...

Purse Dump

Purse Dump

I. I had a very quiet weekend that included a run through Azeroth with two of my boys + my youngest boy's girlfriend. It was super fun. They kept making fun of me because I'm a loremaster and I read everything and watch every cut scene and I don't just blast my way...

GenXZeneca

GenXZeneca

I. I had my vaccine yesterday morning and I'm happy to report that it hasn't been any worse than any other jab I've ever gotten. My arm is super sore, and I am pretty tired, but that is better than OH I DUNNO DEAD so I'll take it. My second jab is scheduled for August...

WE DID IT

WE DID IT

Thirty posts in thirty days!! YES!! It's been a real pleasure. Month-end is also done and I can now collapsey heap for a day or two before starting the cycle all over again. Look what I made throughout the month of April! [gallery columns="5" link="file"...

All Caught Up

All Caught Up

This is my wee little "I was a day behind but now I'm not" post. I had a good & quiet day. There was rain on my skylight. I ate some sharkcoot, and it was delicious. I listened to more news than I should have, but I'm okay. When I weigh not knowing what's going on...

I Love Where I’m Living

I Love Where I’m Living

I. I got *most* of what I wanted to get done taken care of yesterday, but the sun came out and beckoned me and I spent TWELVE HOURS upon it. From 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. The entire neighbourhood came out to frolic upon my lawn - six feet apart - with a little paraffin...

I’m Going To Live

I’m Going To Live

I. I woke up this morning and got up to make coffee - naked. This has not happened since I moved out of my three-story walk-up in December 2019. When I moved in with GG, I started wearing clothing at all times, even to bed, because living with one's adult child will...

Silver Linings

Silver Linings

I. I want to talk to you about Journal Jam because it has been one of the only "silver linings" of the COVID experience. II. Journal Jam started in March of 2020 when we were all on lockdown and pretty much terrified. I wanted a way to connect with my coterie of...

Month-End

Month-End

I. So I'm in month-end which means I'm scrambling, but I have been extremely kind to myself this month so I'm way ahead. It'll be fine. It still takes some scrambling, but not the same kind of scrambling I usually have to do so I'm grateful. II. I am in love with this...

Garbage

Garbage

I. In coffee convo with my muppet this morning. A thing we agreed on because we both have these kinds of people and this kind of grief in our lives: "Garbage human being, yes, but *MY* garbage human being!" We grieve garbage people because we love them. We do not love...

Life. The Best We Can Do.

Life. The Best We Can Do.

I took this yesterday when I was feeling particularly tired - post-therapy, post a long conversation with a friend, pandemic weary... Space buns. Side boob. Those new lines around my eyes. I love them. They tell you the story of who I am.  It's been a good couple of...

Pleasure & The Pandemic

Pleasure & The Pandemic

I. I spent a few hours running around in Azeroth with GG last night, and it was awesome. We also had a listening party - took in the newest album from Amigo The Devil.  Dude made me cry. I love him so much. II. I slayed a bunch of the list yesterday before I went...
