Life is a Tapestry... and Continual Emerging of Self



The more willing you are to surrender to the energy within you, the more power can flow through you. ~ Shakti Gawain

Tapestry weaves the stories of her life and transforms them to new ways of being. She is the forest floor... earthy, deep and full of riches.

Tapestry provides the nutrients for new life to begin...

Emerging Red

Red is the dynamic energy that flows through all living things... and emerges as herself.

Red is smart and knows what she wants. She takes decisive action to bring her dreams to reality... she creates herSelf as she desires to be.

She walks her own path...

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. ~ G.B. Shaw

My path.

I like to figure things out for myself, and it isn’t always the easy route...


I may have a destination in mind, but the path is not always clear.

Sometimes I get lost and have to retrace my steps... but then I just keep on going.

I’m driven by a sense of discovery and adventure. 

I’ll say to myself ~ What if?...

'Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.' ~ Emerson

I’m creating my own path... It is unique to me.

No, it isn’t always easy... but then, the greater the challenge, the greater the reward...

‘Your work is to discover your work, and then with all your heart, to give yourself up to it.’ ~ Gautama Buddha

The Rose Garden


Once upon a time in a garden, lived a beautiful rose. 

She wore a red velvet dress and surrounded herself with brilliant blues and greens...

Rose was happy and had everything she could wish for.

Her garden was her kingdom. It was nature in full bloom... colourful flowers, wild grasses, bees, blue sky... and a warm, gentle breeze. It was the garden of love and beauty.

Nature’s living bouquet.

But as seasons come and go, Rose’s world began to change...

And slowly, Rose died a little death.

“Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.” ~ author unknown

But the Essence of the Rose lives on...

Rose is in every golden pink sunset and every blossoming garden.

She is a summer day...

She is love and passion... ruby red... her element is fire, burning bright with desire... and in the fullness of life!

When you experience love, you experience the essence of the Rose.

'The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.' ~ author unknown
