I’m in the midst of writing business plans and designing new products for our future re-launch of the Eternal Child. We are evolving and transforming into a new chapter and it is both an exciting and excruciatingly long and painful experience – to say the least. No one ever tells you, that to be a creative comes with so much extra work and indecision. I have been learning and growing as an artist for the past century and finding my true identity in this world of creativity. So as I sit here- day upon day – writing, researching and designing – I place myself back in the midst of a beautiful table – lost in the sequoia national forest- where I find true inspiration. For its moments like these that push me to the future.

Gather Beautifully

The barn

This past weekend I took 14 friends with me to a 190 acre ranch, tucked away in the foot hills of the Sequoia National Park.   We stayed for 3 days in a renovated barn that resides next to a bustling river and shared life with chickens, donkey's, horses and cows, peacocks, pups and the friendliest little kittens you've ever met.  I invited my friends to come escape to the country side with me to celebrate love, nature ad the coming of new age - my 30th birthday. I have been dreaming of organizing this kind of retreat since I can remember.  To come together with likeminded souls - to create and exist  under one roof and in such a beautiful place is simply perfect.    We began our mornings in a group with yoga and meditation, we explored the river and loved on the animals, we made flower crowns and played silly games.

The stunning table

We prepared food together and sat at a long table to enjoy it.  We lived together and bonded, and took away all of the distractions to just be present.  It was a beautiful thing.  I could have stayed forever... or at least a few more days.   I want to make these kind of retreats a more regular thing.  For one I love planning them.  

An inspirational environment

Creating an inspirational environment for people, especially artists is so important to me.  I know, for myself, it is vital to escape the day to day and get into nature, surround myself with like-minded beings and just exist.  That is where happiness resides.  I dream of a future filled with such experiences and I hope the universe will give me the pieces to create it for my community.
