New Moon Musings

The Pisces New Moon sees me thoughtful and in an introspective mood. Realisations rising to the surface and renewed clarity.
This little video of Patti Smith kinda sums it up for me today…

Valentine's Day Paper Hearts

Perhaps it's because I'm a hopeless and (happily) incurable romantic….
Or maybe it's the little powwow I had with the Saint when I was in Dublin back in the Summer of 2005….

There I was, wandering the city with a tourist map in hand and noticed that Whitefriar Street Church had a shrine and casket with his bones on display.  After a string of disastrous relationships (romantic learning curves) I was keen to pay him a visit.  Let's just say we had words. I met someone just 6 months later. That was 10 years ago now.

Anyway, for the above reasons and more, I adore Valentine's Day.

This year, the lead up feels very celebratory and nurturing in a self-empowering kind of way. Lots of my artist friends are creating art to mark the day, and talking about acts of self-care to promote Love and self-respect. Really looking into the mirror with eyes of kindness. After all, the most important relationship we will ever have is the one we have with ourselves!

I will be doing the same….as well as celebrating the day.

And here is a mixed media painting I have created featuring collaged Paper Hearts.

Have you heard about Courtney Walsh's novel of the same name?
Here is the trailer for her new book >>

Yes! Here's to starting our own traditions!

Wishing you all a beautiful Valentine's Day celebrating your own sovereignty and strong self-worth while flying solo or together.
