I hope this teaches America a big lesson. With an all-time disgraceful showing of patriotism - I can believe my eyes and ears - my heart is screaming for protection of this planet - while this insanity playing out. This a merging of sorts with the other “worlds greatest superpower” - yet that guy is a mobster and dictator. Now rumors that he’s invited to come visit-lol. I yell....”Never again will we sink this low on the world stage!!!” #probablynot #ineedtherapy #enough #espionage #cosmicconspiracy #america

Just over a week away! Who’s coming??!! This is an exciting night for me to share my work and celebrate my 46th birthday. Thank you @leven11 and @eveencinitas - @johnbuttaz - @domlabrecquephoto - @premyogi108 - @boochcraft - and many more!
Are you in the thick of like so many others with deep reflection and Healing? Have patience and compassion with yourself… it’s a real practice and I know I sure need it right now.
Certainly I lean towards sharing the moment of my life that are fun and inspiring on social media. Yet, as you can imagine… That is just part of the truth and story of my life. I have moments of darkness to… And at times feel compelled to want to share that openly yet. Vulnerability is something that deserves discernment on who to share it with or not – as @brenebrown reminds us....its for those that can truly hold space and listen with love - free of Judgments – assumptions and criticism. I’m so grateful for the dear friends that I have… And can hear all of my processing unfiltered and true. I encourage everyone to reach out and ask for support they need from someone you know and trust - we are not in this crazy world alone. #processing #cosmicconspiracy #lifeisfuckingcrazy #ilovemylife #gratitude #friends #mtblife #instagood #selfportrait #30dayselflovechallenge
To go or not to go?? - so far it’s not feeling in the flow - maybe that will shift. I pray for guidance of what’s in my highest and best interest. #sobeit #lifeisfuckingcrazy #lookingforaticket @richvaneveryphotography #burningman #photographerlife #instaart #playaart #thankyoularry #thankyoularryharvey
