Living mixed media

What I've been doin' lately:

constructing lil boxes out of paper

accidentally covering my hands with layers of paint and glue like a mixed media flesh

loving on The Source of us All

listening to gorgeous music

stumbling into old patterns and trying to remember what they look like for the future

tuning into incredible inspiration

writing sacred words together

forming something out of 'nothing'

falling in love with the idea of being guided, lead to somewhere amazing, all over again

realizing the slow, drawn out telling of a story is so much better than the alternative

meeting beautiful new sisters

embarking on something that will alter our world

struggling in a few areas which I refuse to let win

releasing things I've held on-to, but don't need any-more

feeling excited about where that crazy cool Source is taking me

hearing the whisperings of Spirit

loving me more than before

entertaining and smoochin' on my precious cats

congratulating me

giving absolute credit to my Sourcey-worsey

thinking about you

being quiet around here

feeling slightly guilty/worried about it

knowing that I'm just doing my thing

claiming my right to

understanding that it isn't hurting me or my future

sleeping, then not very well

going with the flow of it

appreciating my art, then not, then finding my way again

embracing the shift that has begun with-out and with-in

looking forward to fall

wishing I called it autumn

filling up that Source-shaped hole with the one and only 'thing' that fits

thinking and dreaming about the future

letting go of the control of the direction of my life

wanting to ultimately do only one thing: help

staying out of worryville

dancing with fear

telling failure, "Sadly, for you, you do not exist."

saying, "Pop-tart stop."

living my developing journey with as much grace, joy, and gratefull'ness as I can muster in every given moment

creating who I'll be in the next second

being blessed by the soulship I have found in my sisters & amazed at the way wishes develop into our actual lives

moving on

circling back

finding out

not understanding















and just plain being fabulous.

Wha' chu' doin'?

Same things?

Yeah. :)

It's fantastic, isn't it?


  1. Melissa this is a beautiful post! Your art work is amazing! Loving all the colors and textures!

    Your words inspire me! I so need to let go of trying to control (which I know stems from fear) and get the hek out of worryville myself! I long to just "be" and am grateful for the journey I am on now that has me creating and sharing!

    Thanks for sharing with us!
