Today I turn age 47. What was I doing 20 years ago? I was working on my very first deck project, the Shapeshifter Tarot. Since then I’ve navigated through many creative oceans and have squeezed through many tubes of paint. I’m not as idealistic, but I’m wiser. I’m not as indefatigable, but I’m more fluent and efficient. I’m no longer as youthfully vibrant, but I’m comfortable with my lived-in skin. I’m in a good space with fully grown wings and concentration lines that mark the hours spent hovering over art, striving to paint with acuity. I’ve lived through beautiful and sad journeys filled with the unexpected. I’ve developed a thick skin under my delicate feathers, but I’ve never lost the essence of heart and soul and all the vulnerability and inspiration that goes along with flying through unknown skies. For those of you who wished me a Happy Birthday today, thank you!

I’d like to share 3 of my favorite holiday cards received this year. The girl with the cats was created by the talented Tara Larsen Chang, the dove card in the middle top was hand-crafted by my friend of almost 30 years, Cindy Coombe, and the bottom right card was sent to me by author Lesley Morrison (co-creator of Winged Enchantment Oracle). She added a feather or two which enhanced the card’s gorgeosity. Thank you friends!
Pathways and more pathways. In another life, I would have been a landscape designer!
