Open Letter to Art Rise

Good morning – since everyone seems to love “READING” Sinead’s Open letter to Miley – I thought I’d love to write an open letter to a few young people that I know as well!

This letter goes out to all of the vendors who showed up Friday night, to set up in the AHA Sanctuary to create a sacred marketplace.  Talk about bringing MEANING into the Marketplace – the products they are selling are varied from  Raw Spirolina Bars, Tea Elixirs, Crystals, home made journals, wire/stone jewelry and Humble Love soaps & lotions.    I mention Humble Love because this represents what all of us seem to embrace … we are humbled to be discovering each other.  I am very proud and inspired to begin collaborating with all of you to expand our heart community.

The (he)art community is rising here – you can feel it rising at every 1st Friday Art March.    We are so GRATEFUL for the ART MARCH SAVANNAH heart — Clinton, Lauren & Steven.  Seriously – YOU GUYS ROCK!    Your vision of creating an art market that supports & sustains the artists and their community is a beautiful vision.   A vision that I share and am so interested in collaborating with you!    This is a vision that I’ve been holding for a very long time and it feels really good to actually see my inspired vision coming true.   It also is a little overwhelming.    I believe that the overwhelming part is part of the process of when you create what we are creating with the Art March, Art Rising, Anahata Healing Arts as well as our own personal work.    Take a breath. Ask for hugs.  We are all feeling the expansion.  It’s new feeling.  It’s a feeling to celebrate.  Be gentle with yourself.  Then remember to collaborate!

It’s the collaboration part that comes in very HANDY.  As I feel our collaboration beginning, I have started to feel a “weight” being lifted off me.    I don’t have to do everything all myself.   There are others who feel the same way about co-creating abundance as a team.    Sharing the abundance and the work – this is such a healthier & MORE ENJOYABLE way to live!      I want to ENJOY my life … I want YOU TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE TOO!

So why the open letter – because I want to share with others that there are people out there who are taking ACTION in their own hands to create prosperous & thriving opportunities.  For those people who are interested in being nice, respectful, and open hearted.    It’s time for us to let go of what doesn’t work and take risks.   It’s time for us to trust our hearts to guide us to collaborate with people who live from their heart.

What does Living from your heart mean  – to me, it means your actions express your values.   It means your words express loving thoughts/feelings.  It means you forgive yourself for being human as well as having compassion for everyone!    We all have a heart – and they can beat together. 

In conclusion – waking up on this lovely Saturday in Anahata Healing Arts – I danced in the Sanctuary.  I could feel your energy rising … this is the power we have when we are collaborating – our collective energy is stronger our physical selves.     This is really cool!

Keep sharing your Magic Passion Love – the world needs your wow!

from my heart to yours,


PS:  thank you Maggie & Clinton for inspiring & encouraging me to blog.  Gratitude is MAGIC!

Magic Passion Love & Blue Christmas

May the Spirit of Christmas live in your heart, today and always. ~ unknown

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it — and for those like me who choose to celebrate this time of year with quiet solitude and of my own design, I am inspired to meet others who have the courage to celebrate the holidays in their own unique way!!!

Last night I was invited to the Christmas Eve @ Trinity Church, in the Telfair Square, Savannah, GA. I took the opportunity to say yes to be spontaneous and off I went to the “Blue Christmas’ concert.

Trinity is one of the oldest churches in Savannah’s Historic District so I was expecting to go to a beautiful church and hear traditional Christmas Carols. AND IT GOT A PLEASANT SURPRISE!!!

Trinity’s Blue Christmas celebration used the form of Christian worship (especially the traditional Service of the Nine Lessons & Carols) and popular music from 1960s, 70s, and 80s to set the tone. The service was non-traditional and is decidedly non-liturgical! This is the 3rd year they shared this type of service with no pretension or apologies. While this is not the only way the worship – it is one of the ways in which they seek to embrace the mystery of the center of the universe.

Special thanks to Enoch Hendry, the pastor of the church for sharing Christmas Magic Passion Love!!

The evening consisted of 14 “recorded songs’ being played in the sanctuary with everyone sitting in the pews. They lit candles at the end — I loved it!! I’ve always enjoyed “listening parties!” and in a church it was wonderfully special. Here’s a few of them!!

#1 – everybody say cheese “Hallelujah” by kd lang

#2 – we’re all in this together “World Turing” by lea kottke

#3 – life is a mystery! “souvenirs” by john prine

#4 – choices have consequences “river” by joni mitchell

#5 – that’s life! “blue christmas” by elvis

#6 – even so, its worth it “for a dancer” by linda ronstadt & emmy lou harris

#7 – there are (still) signs and wonders “star of bethlehem” by neil young

#8 – you are not alone “the weight” the band

#9 – the world would go on “mother & child” by paul simon
