Why I Create
I’ve always been fascinated with the creation of life. My mother was a nurse at a women’s hospital and sometimes she’d take my siblings and me to her job when I was a little girl. A few of the women awaiting their turn to become mother-teachers would let my chubby hands brush lightly across their pregnant bellies. What wonderful magic, I thought, carrying a teeny tiny person inside you for a time and nurturing her while she develops. It was exquisite work.
That deep reverence for the creation of life never left me. Today it’s grown into my love of nurturing a creative spirit. It inspires me to design the life I deserve. We all carry this magic within us. Magic to craft new possibilities. Magic to heal. Sometimes we just need a little reminder. Little love notes in the form of yoga, writing, and cooking can nudge us toward deeply intuitive and healing energies. So I created this space for you. To help you remember your magic. Welcome. Let’s create ;-)
