Being a one-woman-run operation is a burdensome privilege. Sometimes it can feel isolating and exhausting when you’re pouring your heart and soul into your work and not receiving much feedback. It’s collaborations with other amazing women paving their own path that keeps me going. This latest collaboration with Susan Connor and Her New Tribe is just that. Vintage pieces hand picked by me make their way to Susan Connor in NYC to be printed, then Stephanie of Her New Tribe in Atlanta, brings them to life with her styling. See the entire styled series here and you can purchase the hand printed vintage shorts here.

WHO WILL SPEAK? by: Linda Hogan
If all the animals came from the hills,
if all the fish came from the rivers,
and all the birds came down from the sky
we would know our lives,
somewhere between the mountain
and the ant.
We would see what we do pass by
around Earth’s curve.
All I know are these rivers,
and the air and wind
carving down the trees
with their invisible hands
until the trees are bent figures of old men
and then only empty space.
a longing that passes.
And the sorrow says,
who will speak for them?
Who will make houses of air
with their words?
And the mouth of a man,
that belongs to grass and light
and the four-legged creatures.
He speaks of tomorrow.
He gives voice to small animals.
He gives a seat to the eagles.
Words for the fish.
The golden light of creation.
The world returns.
I do not want to break this spell.
I do not wan the words to fall away.
I do not want to break this spell.
– Linda Hogan from her book Dark. Sweet.

Today is a great day to write about my tattoo. I had a dream last night that brings everything full circle. I have come so far from a year ago. I was dealing with some mega postpartum anxiety and fear was literally running my life. With the help of a wonderful therapist, or guru rather, I got back in touch with my dreams and my most inner self. The bear has been a frequent visitor both in my dreams and waking life and has offered so much comfort. Bear medicine represents the power of introspection…
“To become like Bear and enter the safety of the womb-cave we must attune ourselves to the energies of the Eternal Mother, and receive nourishment from the placenta of the Great Void. The Great Void is the place where all solutions and answers live in harmony with the questions that fill our realities. If we choose to believe that there are many questions in life, we must also believe that the answers to these questions reside within us. Each and every being has the capacity to quiet the mind, enter the silence and know.” – (from the book Animal Medicine by Sams and Carson)
In most of the dreams the bear was a strong steady presence, non threatening, yet I still had fear every time I saw her. In my dream last night, the bear started coming towards me, so I surrendered and laid down on the earth and the bear came and snuggled me! It was the perfect metaphor to surrender to fear and you will be cared for (metaphor is the key word here, don’t try this is waking life, ha!)
This image also represents the power of motherhood. The confidence and strength that you innately get from being a mother. I definitely feel more solid in my convictions and more self-acceptance. It also represents the fierce yet sweet bond between mother and child. When I actually got the tattoo it brought up a lot of emotions around the loss of my mother and even though she is no longer physically present, that link is still strong.
I also want to say in all honesty that in addition to therapy and meditation I also needed anti-anxiety medication. I’m very thankful that I had this option as I needed it to stay grounded for my daughter and our family through a difficult time. I was worried that it would stunt my spiritual growth but it only gave me a foundation to explore and be more present.

There are some lovely new items in the shop. New hand-dyed scarves and jewelry made by myself and friends as well as some vintage dresses that would be great for attending summer weddings.

When you’re out exploring, keep your eyes out for triangle shaped rocks, they make for great jewelry holders. I like to keep them all over the house.

I’m over at The Ma Books today, talking about mother daughter style. It was a really fun article to write, to discuss with friends and try to capture that elusive quality that is true style.
