The young ones remind us

That life’s an adventure

Excited to venture

Into unknown

Taste it for the first time

See how far you can run

Wave hello to someone

Smell wildflowers

my tribe


There’s a reason why we are called to the light, in search of its warmth and direction so bright. For within us we sense there is quite the same, a connection we might not be able to name. It may be the quest to find our home, the place where our very soul is known. To find the like-wise we must use our heart-eyes which will guide us safely along so that when we find the others of our kind we will KNOW we are where we belong.

be careful…


So you say you want to be like me because you like what you see, that you want my smile, you want my style but you don’t really know how I got here, my journey of many a mile. There are times when I was so lost, while out on the seas that ship of mine; drifting and tossed. There have been moments when I knew that I was better off dead; hypnotized by the critic in my head. It’s been a journey of twists and turns to choose to follow the lessons learned. The person you see is the person I was meant to be and that is the charge I ask you to think through; that rather than to be like me, please consider learn to be YOU!
