The world can seem quite overwhelming. In a time where we are being told to take action, action, action! I come with what appears to be a rather strange message for this time. My message is to rest, to dream, to stop.
I'm aware this may not make me particularly popular with some. I do see the need for action but we need to remember what we are fighting for. A car wont run without fuel and likewise we as human beings need fuel. The fuel to stoke this particular fire is what I've previously referred to, rest and dreams. As humans we have forgotten that through the ages we have been fed soulfully on fairytales and magic. It is not childsplay to retell these old tales as a matter of fact it would be foolish not to. We need to talk about the magic in order for it to thrive once more and in doing so ignite the passions in the next generation. It's OK to forget for a minute, to frolic and play, you need not feel guilt only the power that comes from freedom.
Magic isn't hard to find, remember those old tales from your youth or go and sit in the wild and listen. Perhaps seek out tender moments in the seemingly every day. This is all food for our fight. Warriors cannot fight forever but they are at their very best when they are nourished.
It is time to rest those weary bones on the earth and enjoy the peace of this magical place. This is a place I have known for a very long time and have gratefully been gifted the ability to recreate the creatures that reside here in wool, thread and words.
I really hope that my sculptures bring you joy and that my blog posts about
The Whispering Wild and my life within it inspire you to help open your heart to my wild and creative life.
Much love and magic xx
