I want you to feel BEAUTIFUL, VIBRANT & LOVED.
One way I'm here to help is this site:
a STAND out
It started with the hope of cultivating the brightest life for myself, and sharing that light with others. My background in architecture and design told me that I needed a framework, so I selected five areas of human experience to deeply explore:
Our core consciousness. It is far more powerful than our tangible self (us from the skin in). Our soul is the intangible part of our being realizing its boundless strength. And its power, its strength, its radical energy lives in synchronicity with the birds, bees, flowers, trees, and the whole damn universe.
The curated community of human and non-human animals we choose to surround us, support us, challenge us, and ultimately amplify our own life's meaning.
The gifts we give to the world for its betterment. Art is all that is conjured by our mind, motivated by our heart, manufactured by our body, and contributed with honesty.
The gifts we take from the world for our betterment. Nourishment is all of the "good things" -to borrow Martha Stewart's barometer- created by man, the soil, and the sea.
The exchange of words between people, so that we may entertain stories, hold beliefs, challenge differences, learn lessons, and glean wisdom.
The journal is where the pillars of STAND are celebrated and mused upon. You can expect to find tips, guidance, stories (perhaps a fitting gif, anyone?) paired with visual collages of my making & editing. A friend told me that they lift her to "a magical wonderland," and I'll take that!
I also think that in our increasingly tech-y age, the art of Dialogue (the last but not least pillar) is particularly important. We simply must ask questions and listen to others' answers, opinions, and narratives. In that spirit, I invite all you wise babes to share your words in Questions For Babes. Every single one of us has lead weird, cool, humiliating, heartbreaking, and victorious lives, and I'm here to remind you that your perspective stands out, and is needed.
