Sweet Cave, Sweet Music
I'm still in a sweet cave of reflecting on the year behind and tilling the emotional-spiritual soil so I can plant things for the year to come.
I also have about ten projects in the fire, so part of my cave is pulling back and creating creating creating.

Her Message: A poem after the California fire
On the first day, the fires came without warning. Just a precession right down the middle of main street, hello, hello, I've been looking forward to meeting you. The wind scattered sparks skyward.

Sense of Sight and the Wonder Body: the bully sense, soothing colors, and live action coloring!

Don't get too comfortable. Don't get too used to one thing, because it...
Wonder Body and the 3rd Chakra: The Solar Plexus that asks "Can I be me?" paired with the power of connection
Season 3 of the Pleasure Lab podcast: The 3rd Chakra
In this fourth full episode of Season 3, Amy and Alex talk about the 3rd Chakra (the Solar Plexus). This is the potency center, where the question is "Can I be me?" yet the words and drawings that emerged are wacky. We can't wait to...
