Last week I performed a new piece at the Image Factory Art Foundation in Belize City. It was part of LAB4, a two-week experimental art space created and curated by Katie Numi Usher. This is the fourth year of the LAB and I’ve been so grateful to be a part of the last two installments of this project. It’s been a huge part of my creative process here in Belize, as it’s challenged me to make something new every year. It’s also been awesome to be part of a project which features the work of so many great artists in Belize. Continue reading “I Am The Lovers @ LAB4”
I’ve been getting up in that tarot this week. First, a birthday reading to get some inspiration about where I am in my life right now at forty years old. Then, a reading this morning for the new moon solar eclipse. The cards are speaking to me. A lot of major arcana coming up, deep and soulful ones like Death and the Hanged Man.

Tonight’s new moon in Gemini is a shift and the beginning of a new cycle. I’m getting into the energy and did a clearing ritual today.

This moon is about release and renewal. Continue reading “The Practice: Part 3”

The destabilizing energy of Mercury retrograde combined with the new moon in Taurus, with its emphasis on grounding and connecting with resources, was a bit of a doozy. I found myself vacillating between wanting to slow down and push forward, holding on and wanting to release. It’s been uncomfortable and difficult at times. Nothing went as planned. I’m ending the month in a different place from where I started. I kinda feel like I’ve been through it. Continue reading “The Struggle: Being Empowered Versus Being In Control”
In my body, mind and spirit, I am feeling September. Even though there is not yet a seasonal change here in Belize, I feel an internal shift. Continue reading “The Practice: Part 2”
Folks, I have become a morning person.
I know, I know… it’s shocking. I can hardly believe it myself. For those of you who are morning people I know this isn’t a big deal, but y’all who’ve known me for a while are aware that waking up early is something I’ve struggled with my whole life. Continue reading “Morning”
With all the wonderful experiences I’ve been having here in Belize, I’ve also been dealing with the upheaval that comes with moving to a new place. Moving in general can be daunting and stressful. Moving to a new country is another level. Continue reading “The Practice: Part 1”
