The six weeks of #oasisselflove are rooted deeply in desert metaphor and wisdom. The research necessary to write material each week brings me to this magical space where science/the physical and poetry meet. The desert has the way of doing that. Of taking the hard and seemingly inhospitable and making me look deeper, beneath the surface - to see the lushness and life.
I've talked often in my writing about how hard I fought back against my life here. How much energy I expended lamenting that life did not afford me the chance to plant my roots by the sea.
And then, somehow, this desert had her way with me. Wound through me. Sent her poetry in through my lungs and my hands and the souls of my feet. So that when I cry now I smell grandmother creosote, and so my bones came to crave the holiness of baking in the heat. So I came to know that roots work best when they run both deep and shallow, so that I can take in what comes when it comes and learn to survive when it does not. And though I still long for the ocean, it has come to be that now my being also waits all year for that joy is felt deepest when the heaven open and a deluge of rain pours onto the hard packed earth in a place that longs most for water. That then, as constrained and tight as I might be, there is nothing to do but run outside and dance.

When the new gatherers of the desert learn again how to live here, its pulse will course through me.
And I say, I will be ready if the drought comes.
And I say, go deep into the Earth.
And I say, go deep into yourself, go deep and be ready.
BOOKS... So many dream... So many talk and share with their friends behind the scenes.. "You know.. I have this book in my heart.." BUT MANY NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.

“How would you know you were a HEALER if you’ve never needed healing?” ~ I Am TASSIE
As I was going through my pictures today I came across this one and I was flooded with memories. I’ve told my story many times and you can also read it in my book but what this picture always reminds me of is how life allows you to experience things that seem unorthodox or challenging just to bring out of you parts of what was placed in you from the foundation of this earth.
I am who I am today because of what I went through during this season of life.
🔑: Embrace your experiences because there is PURPOSE and a REASON for everything. Remove “yourself” from the situation and your perspective may change 😉

Als sie nach einem tragischen Unfall mit ihrem geliebten Pferd plötzlich eine Gummiente im Krankenzimmer vorfindet, kann das nur eines bedeuten: Davis war hier. Schließlich verbindet die beiden eine gewisse Gummienten-Theorie ... 👉 aktuell gibt es Teil 1 zum Aktionspreis von 0,99 € 🎉

What will you write with this wide open freedom?
To be sure, it’s not about what you do with that writing. Not really. Not about growing an audience or publishing a book or even sharing those words with anyone at all.
No. The freedom lies simply in the writing itself. In the pen to page or fingers to keyboard. In the release. In the spill of truth. In what is revealed there. It lies in the way writing draws out what we’ve pushed down. Locked away. Been unwilling to face. Or even just that we’ve not had space to unveil and discover.
It doesn’t matter in the end if you close your journal, or tear the page, or share it with the world. What matters is the writing itself. The courage. The honesty. The rawness of truth. In the tentative or the bold excavation. In the way we are willing to write our way into our wide open lives.
Vellum starts at $200 for the eBook version, and $250 for the eBook and print version. That's pretty pricy for a lot of authors, especially considering that the going rate for formatters is less than that. (Might we suggest using our services instead and save yourself a hundred dollars?) If you're publishing several books, then you'll have to weigh the pros and cons. It might make sense to invest in Vellum, but keep in mind the formatting options are limited, so your book interior wouldn’t necessarily match your exterior, and definitely wouldn’t be unique.
