There is nothing more revealing than an ‘about’ page with a checklist of likes and dislikes. I will allow those things to unfold as I surface bit by bit, in layers.

As a quiet and reflective artist and yogini, I continually seek to understand the aesthetics of authenticity (if there is such an ideal) through gratitude, service, curiosity, creativity, beauty, and compassion.

Peeling back layers in this expansive life and those wise little feelers in the day where we find aha moments, I invite you on a journey of discovery

~ In Blue


An oriental wise man always used to ask

the Divinity in his prayers,

to be so kind as to spare him

from living in an interesting era.

As we are not wise,

the Divinity has not spared us,

and we are living in an interesting era.

~Albert Camus

  18. Found you via David Kanigan – you move me with your words. I’m a great believer in using words in a ‘good’ sense 🙂
    I do have a huge problem though: Your type-set (colour) is practically illisible to people like me with very bad eye-sight. Therefore, although I’ve subbed to you, I might not be able to read everything you wrote & will write. I’m sorry about this.

    • Hi Kiki…..thanks for being here. And thanks for letting me know this. Nobody has said this before, so thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will explore options! Many heart wishes to you.
