And Then She Came

Aloha! And Happy New Year and Happy Day 🙂 Its been a minute since I’ve posted here. There is much creativity happening on the scene. Last night I was part of a wonderful fashion show “Buy Conscious” evening to showcase local talent at the Honolulu Ka’aako Agora. It was a safe space for me to show and sell my work as well as do some live art yall. Can you believe it?! Selling art. Live art. Gasp! At the start of that...

The Exhibit

Posted by on Sep 11, 2016 in musings | 1 comment

I started this blog 3 years ago with the intention of using this platform as a tool for documenting my creative process along with my transition into motherhood and how to navigate both worlds simultaneously. Over the years, I come, I go, I come again to this blog to create, to share, to process. I am on my path. I am in my lane. Where this road is leading me, I’m not sure but right now its wrapped up in being both mother and artist. And...

Affected

Here I am affected. In a way that I don’t understand. I consider myself book smart, street smart and plain old fashioned intelligent. But this. This here. What I am feeling. I do not understand.

Its been 9 days and 9 nights since The Day. My emotions have been all...

Who Am I?

Posted by on Apr 20, 2016 in musings |

This person I am becoming…it’s a process of remembering and forgetting and recycling over and shedding. There are layers not needed. There are layers forgotten yet necessary. There are bare bones requiring nothing. Nothing but the use of what they were made for: the foundation. Who am I? What are my bare bones? I’m in the process of stitching together the pieces of my story. Reassembling the original package of my soul all...

Living Life as a Thank You

Posted by on Jan 23, 2016 in musings |

Living life as a thank you. Today my heart broke. I was saddened by an experience I witnessed my son having. Sadness washed over me seeing the hurt, the fear, the humiliation on his face. All the emotions he felt was experienced in my body. I wish I could rewind and edit, backspace and delete this unwanted file. Make it gone. But it happened. And in the aftermath, I’ve been trying to see the light. What can we learn? What can I be...
