Special All Soul's Greetings

To mark All Soul's Night I took a ride with Baba, in her black swan, to the Isle of the Dead and met the Queen of the Serpents who guards the entrance to the underworld. I took a small vile of pure Castalian Water, collected at Delphi and we drank to creativity. The Serpent has blessed all travellers on the Soul Food Silk Way.

Dream Seeds

The 'Fertility Goddess' or 'Mother Goddess' is a more complex image than most people think. She is not only the Mother Goddess who commands fertility, or the Lady of the Beasts who governs animals and all wild nature, or the frightening Mother Terrible but a composite image with traits accumulated from both the pre-agricultural and agricultural eras - Maria Gimbutus

In the Northern Hemisphere there were traditionally fertility ceremonies during the latter part of October. To mark this period le Enchanteur is offering dream seeds for travellers to plant, nurture and use to identify their creative dreams.

The next step

I am thinking about Joseph Cornell and taking the next step. I am thinking of working with little boxes that hang on the wall. Something more like flattened altars that are filled with little objects.

A small proclamation

I want to paint my personal stories. I do believe I will succeed. Day by day is the only way. Each brush stroke is a step in the right direction. I have much fear, but I must follow the path that is laid before me. I visualize positive energy all around me. I close the door to voices that do not help my goals. Smiling to myself can be a very effective.

Soul Hands to do Creative Bidding

Image Hosted by

By night this designer, Soul Hand Candle Holder, in Red Boots, will illuminate your manuscripts and art work. By day they will do the bidding of their owner and guide them safely to the Gypsy Camp. They will be a match for any of the indentured hands in Baba's house and will make sure their owner is protected from any unreasonable demands.

These hands will go to the highest bidder. Make the best, non monetary offer, to the Amazon Queen and she will command these hands become your servant.

Cleaning day

Unfortunately, today is a house cleaning day and it's already dark. So finish up quick and before I go to bed I will clean my desk and prepare my Crow's Nest Studio to begin painting tomorrow. Set up the music, open the window, make sure all the supplies (incense, lighter, paper towels, clean brushes, clean palette, empty trash can) are lined up and ready to go!

Meditating at the Crossroads

Image Hosted by

I have arrived near a glade and I am sitting at the crossroads meditating upon my future directions. I am wearing green to represent my connection to the earth. Note that all my important symbols are present.

Pegasus, winged horse of my beloved Muse, upon whose wings of imagination I fly,
The Raven to my right, bringing messages from around the world
A cup of Castalian Water from Delphi Greece, the waters of creative inspiration
A graceful black swan, a true Australian
The limb of a Cypress, my tree, is ever present
and last but not least,
Statement beads, helping to express my an artistic side.

Guide me wise Gusari! Help me choose a pathway that will nourish my creativity. Tell me what I need to release in order to move forward toward my destiny.

Creative Visualization

Four Basic Steps for Effective Creative Visualization
1. Set your goal
2. Create a clear idea or picture
3. Focus on it often
4. Give it positive energy

Three Necessary Elements
1. Desire - a clear, strong sense of purpose
2. Belief - that it can exist, and that it can exist for you
3. Acceptance - are you willing to have it completely (pro and con)?

Crow's Nest Studio

This will be a place to think and examine art as I know it. I plan for this to be a private group. We will see if I can figure it out. I should write a WOmanifesto. It clarifies what I want and where I plan to go.
