Super Blue Blood Moon Eclipse Magic!

IMG_5735 2There is a reason we awaken to experience change. To see magic of space, nature, earth, moon, sun and universe taking place – right before our very eyes. There is a reason for us to be present for these quiet but truly spectacular occurrences in life. There are these moments that shift us to remind us we are but one speck in the gigantic ocean of being, yet we are the largest speck because we are the one who is seeing it and taking it in. We are both big and small – but we are at that moment – at all moments – reminded we are ONE. The spirit of art, of music, of writing, of filming, of drawing, of dancing, of painting, of spoken word, of ardent smiles, creatrix manifesting all comes from the one place – yet we all take that energy and release it like lightening bolts from our fingertips in a hundred million thousand trillion different ways. The energy is the one energy the release is divinely manifest as completely unique to each and every creation. MAGIC! ART! NEW! CHANGE! So today in this brilliant full moon celebration, we can all go out and be the change we want to see in the world… and embrace it. Be grateful for this opportunity that we choose to take. Let go of the old story, welcome the new and spice it up a little, why not? Blessed Be! xoxo

Bloom After the Fall

I love to find flowers on the pavement. I have photographed many encounters and am fascinated by the art they create after their fall to the ground. We think of flowers upright, on a stem or floating in crystal bowl at a fancy dress event underneath sparkling lights… but on the ground, possibly going to ignored, stepped on… disregarded for they are not in their usual surroundings. These are the flowers I learn from. If I fall in any way, a delve into a character defect that causes me to act badly, be forgetful, unthinking… or if a project I thought was going to go into action has be halted by another changing their mind… or if I just have a bad day, and my colorful blooms have fallen… I can just change my perspective and look at it differently.  Oh! A New Perspective. There’s an idea!

bougainvillea

It’s the glory of it not being over until it’s over… or just when you thought it was one way and it turns out to be totally different. How do I respond? How do I respond to change?  And here we are… the first rains in Los Angeles of the New Year 2018! Two words: SO EXCITING! It was just POURING moments ago early this hour of crystal blue persuasion. Glorious rain! And so much will bloom because of it!

RosesonPavement

And so here we are into our Winter, blooming after our Fall! Thrilling! And the stories! The stories, these blooms do tell! Many of us have many stories of falling… falling to pieces… falling apart… falling through…and as we come out, we come through, wherever we are and  tell our stories. We are not alone in these similar experiences…so it’s fun to share. Where has that fallen rose just come from? Who dropped it? Did I drop it? I’ve dropped a LOT, let me tell you. My manners most of all! But they’ll grow again… I know I have to pull them out and replant them, plug back in. I may have had a tricky time of it lately… but I’m blooming after all… It’s happening and I’m excited! Like a fallen bloom…I’m excited to shine in a new way.  Every day, every moment we have this chance! Let’s bloom after our falls, shall we? Bloomin’ lovely shall we be! Blessed BE!

WITCH IS YOUR DOMAIN?

Ah the church bells are tolling – it is 12:00pm and a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN! HAPPY SAMHAIN and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!! Those of us who know from WITCH WE COME can enjoy the celebration of such a FESTIVE and FORCEFUL time in the UNIVERSE. The ENERGY of the NEW is ever PRESENT and I am FEELING the NEWNESS in its ABUNDANCE the time is NIGH for CHANGE!

Witch brings me to the QUESTION of our PURPOSE – and the KNOWING of WHERE WE ARE IN THE SCHEME OF OUR LIVES. Are we the FOREFRONT in the LIGHT or the back in the DARK? Are we GOING HIGH when they go low? WITCHES FLY don’t you know?

And this goes for all women and men boys and girls and all in between aside and TOGETHER – however you IDENTIFY is your SELF your TRUTH and your BEING – it doesn’t matter in the end for we are all ENERGY BEINGS exchanging our energy, SHARING IT and MELDING it and MIXING it up! The great LESSON that I am constantly LEARNING over and over again is that I HAVE CREATED MY SURROUNDINGS AND MY LIFE. Everything is a RESULT OF MY THINKING. Be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ or often, ‘indifferent’ – IT IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE I HAVE THOUGHT IT SO. I cannot blame or commend anyone but me – as tempting as that may be!

I remember today that I am THE WITCH OF MY DOMAIN and my domain is all my family, friends, work and life. It is EVERYTHING I HAVE CREATED surrounding me are the RESULTS OF MY CHOICES. The lesson I learn is that I can make the MAGIC – MAGIC IS TO BEND OR SHAPE. Magic is the mayhem, the PROMISE, the BEGINNING and the MOVEMENT. Magic is the MYSTERY we continue to DISCOVER. MAGIC IS THE MOTHER, THE FATHER and THE SPIRIT OF MY SOUL. WE ARE ALL ONE IN THE MAGIC TOGETHER. We are the BALL OF SPIRIT. The LIGHT EVERLASTING the BEAUTY and the BUGS, the BRILLIANCE and the BLASTING THROUGH THE OLD TO GET TO THE NEW.

SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY MY MAGIC ONES, happy to have a new day, a new WAY to SEE and to BE and to SHARE. When we trick or treat, DRESS UP AND PLAY, we are making new magic for all to partake. So take a Hula Hoop and shake, rattle and roll… enjoy the rain, the breeze and the EASE and play to your HEART’S CONTENT! Happy Halloween to all and share in the MERRIMENT and remember to JUST LOVE today!! BLESSED BE!! xoxoxo

HULA HOOP!

Me as Vampirina’s mom, Oksana ~ doing a Hula Hoop! Happy Halloween!

MAGNIFICENT YOU!

Be magnificent in everything you do! YES! Momma! I will, you say! For you are magnificent and it really is so easy to do! Magnificent You!

Then we might turn and forget…and feel impelled to be a snarkass mofu – but we can’t!  We shan’t! For as you already know, we are you and you are we and I am you!

So when you are magnificent, then I am magnificent and it is magnificent and the day is beyond gorgeous to boot!

And yes, there is, indeed, poopoo all around us. Si, my Loves, I know. I see it too. Merde, blimey shitey and sticky what-A. Yes, we turn, we look down, we see it on the street. We hear it out of the mouths of many we pay to be regal. We read it all over the social streams. But, we don’t have to be such, we can be magnificent and then the magnificent fever just might catch! We will all burn up with terrific magnificence and then, spring out dancing in the streets, right where we are! Which would be lovely, wouldn’t it?

For as the Beatles pointed out so profoundly, “And in the end, the love you take is equal the love you make.” Love is magnificence!

Let’s start tweeting this, shall we, to those who seem to profoundly forget this?

The choice we make to be magnificent? We will receive this back in heaps and bounds. And I and you will feel the light from within igniting the light from without.

So shine on silver and gold beings and be free, streak in blatant magnificence throughout the day! Gorgeous, beyond divine, magnificent weeeeeee!

So! Writing!

So! Writing! YES. Well. Um. TRUTH IS… obviously, from my last posting being from OCTOBER, it hasn’t happened. WHY? The EXCUSES are many. The reasons are few. I can now share that I have an ah-mazing three year-old daughter who has been in our lives since February. Now that the adoption is final and we are a family and I can share this publicly. I am blessed BEYOND. My husband and I are… and she is an ANGEL and a BRILLIANT LIGHT. She teaches me every single day. She is wise, courageous and astute. Funny, thoughtful and caring. She is her own person with her own life and is doing fabulously.

But she is not why I haven’t been writing. She is why I SHOULD BE writing. I am exhausted, true. I haven’t slept – but I haven’t for many years, let alone, months. I have realized many things that are the reasons.

I am distracted constantly. Perhaps I actually may have the adult ADHD – a condition that runs in our family. I also have the disease of alcoholism. But being over fourteen years sober that cannot be a reason. I have the tools to help with this. I don’t wish to drink, but perhaps that which drove me to drink – to hide, to escape, to postpone my life – THAT – for why I chose to drink –may be the reason.

I often feel I am living sideways, I feel – alongside my real self. I have written before that I have a parallel life – one where I am living fully and richly in Europe. I have flashes of it daily, usually from the south of France or the hills of Tuscany. Sometimes I am in London, often in Kensington High Street. Or Paris – walking around the First Arrondissement, headed across the Jardin des Tuileries. Sometimes I’m riding down the Grand Canal in Venice. But I am traveling in Europe all the time. Then I come to and look at my house and think, how did I get here?

And… that is not – alas, as they say, necessarily all good. I kinda should maybe be in my physical body sometimes? I guess. Unless! I know! I am gathering information for my next book?

jane-virgin

In the late hours of night, after all have gone to bed, I have been watching JANE THE VIRGIN, which I am absolutely mad for – it is – by far – THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION. But it is also not why I haven’t been writing. Or sleeping. I actually sleep better if I can see an episode.

Though Jane’s own journey about writing has surely helped me to think about my experiences with achieving my own dream to be a successful writer. Watching this show has invigorated me. And I am sure, also, stalled me. Not only for spending all the time watching it – I am currently on Season 3, Chapter Forty-Nine and its taking everything in my power not to binge it straight to catch up in real time. But I digress. I am not writing instead – because the show is brilliant and funny and witty and wise – and is literally, like a show I have always wanted to write – but haven’t. It touches on so many areas of human relationships; it’s really therapy, honestly. And it overwhelms me with its brilliance. So I stall. But … only for the last few moments. Or months, really. Honestly… If I am being honest, truthfully, Jane the Virgin has helped me to awaken, to grow up and to look at myself in ways I may not have wanted to. And it makes me happy. Who doesn’t love a good telenovela to awaken all the senses? I’ve even got my godmother to watch! We think Rogelio looks like my husband, and he does. Handsome, ever so good-looking and funny too!

But it’s Jane’s struggle with her motherhood and writing and living and loving and being that I relate to. It’s the perfect show at the perfect time and I don’t feel so out at sea.

Like Jane, I love to write. And like Jane experiences, it’s hard do focus on it when there is SO MUCH ELSE TO BE DONE.

And there lies the problem. The so much else to be done is what I have grown up with witnessing taking precedence over what MUST BE DONE NOW. Which is live in the present, and not be afraid to take the leap – literally – to do what I am meant to be doing.

So I know what it is, question is – WILL I CHANGE? Change is the only thing that is consistent in life. But I know I can try to halt it for the time being. But deep down, I know I have to FACE IT. And EMBRACE IT. And say, I can MAKE A DIFFERENT CHOICE…but do I? There are thank you notes to write after all…

So! Writing. YES! That! Here I am watching the sunrise on this soon to be promise of rainy day. And I have to try to be honest with myself. Not TRY. BE. It will be a change. There, I’ve said it. Or rather written it. Now I have to take the next indicated ACTION and by God and Goddess, DO WHAT I SAY I AM GOING TO DO! THERE. NOW. OK, SO!…

BROOKLYN, THE DANISH GIRL, THE WINTER’S SOLSTICE & CHRISTMAS MORNING

Last week, in Palm Springs, from where I am usually inspired to write, my mother and I saw the motion picture, “Brooklyn” – adapted from exquisite Colm Tóibín’s novel of the same name.

brooklyn_ver2_xlg

GRACE, BEAUTY, LIGHT, AND LOVE. FEARLESS, DESIRE, HOME, IDENTITY, DEATH OF THE OLD SELF AND REBIRTH

Days later again, in Palm Springs, where I also love to see motion pictures, and where we witnessed the arrival of the Winter Solstice, we all saw, “The Danish Girl,” the true story of brave painter, Einar Wegener, who became the first transgendered woman, Lili Elbe, in the early part of the 20th Century.

GRACE, BEAUTY, LIGHT, AND LOVE. FEARLESS, DESIRE, HOME, IDENTITY, DEATH OF THE OLD SELF AND REBIRTH

The_Danish_Girl_(film)_poster

This morning, this Christmas Day, here in Danville ~ San Ramon, where we are celebrating the blessings of the holiday with our family, I think of these attributes ~ Each of the central characters willingly stepped into change, bravely letting go, embracing transformation, despite challenges circling their hemispheres and to choose to receive the gifts given to them by those who surrounded them with love and encouraged them to, yes, BE BRAVE and to BE BOLD.

To watch both films is to be nothing less than deeply moved and beautifully inspired to contemplate how we each can be bravely transformational ourselves. The theme of the Winter’s Solstice ~ the root holiday of what we know as Christmas.

I watched the sun rise last week, gleaming and glowing over the desert mountain range, I contemplated that which invigorates us, me, we – into choosing the live we each choose. Building our identities within the world around us. Being fearless to live as we are, in truth, justice, and the most authentic way.

Sunrise Desert

To embrace that CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONISISTENT IN LIFE. As we progress forward, to shed the old patterns, habits, clothes, objects, thoughts and beliefs, and for many, identities, that no longer serve us. To welcome the new SUN as it RISES, promising a new day, VIGOROUS, GLORIOUS, BOUNTIFUL!

This Christmas Morning, as I walked amidst the fallen golden leaves around the area where we are staying, I watched the sunrise over the hills of the East Bay, the foot of Mount Diablo, the rolling hills of emerald green and light, I understand more than ever, we must be FEARLESS IN LETTING GO ~ to fly, be free, to soar as we are like birds, branch to stamen, to blooming flower ~ to spread our love and light and beauty and gifts to all. At this holiday time, to share in the gifts of who we truly are with us, allowing our light to shine so others are inspired to do so as well.

IMG_1049

Together we hold hands as we celebrate the Winter Solstice, Give thanks for the Gifts we share with all our loved ones during Christmas and Shed the Past and Greet the New Year, Coming this way! Blessed Be and Be Beautiful! xoxo

What Dreams May Come

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME ~ Indeed, from whence I last wrote – the Summer Solstice on 21 June, so much has passed and so many people dear to me, that I found it not possible to put into words all that I have experienced.

I have also been working in production day and night since start of July, that my hours are consumed, and my attention, not on writing. So it has been. This morning, I return, hoping all that is collected and brought here, makes some sense.

IMG_1396

Sadness becomes us as we face the passing of those close to our hearts and souls. Beautiful Goddess June E. Hudson, gifted artist Richard McKenzie, the one-year anniversary of brilliant Robin Williams’ going on his next great adventure… My amazing Goddess Aunt Molly Gorman who passed away ten years ago today…

Hard to believe any of them are not here on Earth any longer.

People. All brilliant lights. Parents to us all. Death is the next transition that will happen to all of us. It is inevitable. It is certain. It is something to be as celebrated as a birth. Sometimes we organize it for ourselves ~ sometimes it takes us by surprise. Sometimes we experience a long illness for which the end finally comes. However it does, we salute those on their next journey as they step onto the boat to cross over. What awaits them, only those making the crossing get to experience ~ so many have made it and no one has come back saying it isn’t pleasant, so we can believe it must be lovely ~ I like to think so anyway!

what_dreams_may_come

I believe in the afterlife whole-heartedly. I was lucky to see it brought to this life when I worked on What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams. Now THAT was an awesome journey! Life, death, art, color, imagination, recreation, envisioning ~ manifesting to the SUPREME. BELIEVE it is FABULOUS and it IS! KNOW that you have the power to make it what you want it to be, and it IS! Share in your VISION and it IS! ACT AS IF and it IS!

I am indeed, so BEYOND BLESSED to have shared in the energy of so many awesome people over the years. To think how fortunate I was to have shared in the energy of Robin while we made What Dreams May Come! Everyone who worked on the picture will tell you – it radically changed each of our lives in some capacity. Fitting that he was the STAR, for Robin is singular among us, a shining beacon who has always lived on another plane, his sparkling blue eyes radiating brilliance, flying across a stratosphere all his own…

We all have dreams we watch float by. Sometimes we reach out, grab it and ride them like a whale or a dolphin as we dip and dive into the waters of creation. We hold on for dear life as they shoot up into the skies to sprinkle the world with manifestation. Or…if we don’t grab on, we watch them float by and we might wave… Maybe the next, maybe the next! Maybe I won’t be afraid! Maybe…I’LL DO IT!
What I know today is those who have gone on during this summertime, each of them left true works of art. Whether it was their amazing, incredibly creative children and grandchildren, their own works of physical art, or their funny sayings we recall, their personalities, if not always inviting, inspired laughter, hilarious moments we recall. My grandmother, Cicely O’Donovan, said so many incredible bon mots, to recount them would take another entry. In fact, I shall devote one to her another time. She lived in the clouds so often, her world was all her own. And… it is a reminder to each one of us ~ our world is our own…but in living day-to-day, we do share it with others. Maybe for the good, perhaps not for some, but always it is THIS LIFE NOW.

IMG_1083

So I ask this now… What dreams may come? What of YOUR DREAMS may come? What of OUR DREAMS do we manifest while we have this time on Earth? What are we doing to really DREAM? We dream to create, to take us somewhere new… or old. To create a business, a place to live, a voyage to take…

I daydream of Paris often. I daydream of a hike I took with our extended family in Lake Tahoe in the summertime – through an expansive field filled with flowers. It was like commercial for soap or some such. But it affected me so at the time that sometimes I go back there in my mind to figure out why. I daydream of Los Angeles when it was quiet. I daydream of a house one day I will live in with my own family. I dream to create on some level ~ To take me on a new journey. I dream to get stronger, to be at peace and to be not afraid.

So this morning, I send blessings and THANK YOUs and salutations to all who have made the journey before me – the crossing from the mundane to the EXTRAORDINARY. Who are the BRAVE ADVENTURERS.

Fly, be free! You are AWESOME and forever, are BLESSED BE!!

God Is My Ice Capades Partner

You Are MagicWhen I walk down the street and see marveilleux messages such as these, I know that I am BLESSED BEYOND! So many thrilling moments happen during each day and how I REACT to them is the MAGIC!

The other morning, I was thinking about God. Goddess. Creatrix. Higher Poweress. However, you may say, feel or think of He, She or It, Bless and Bless! For now, for the sake of visualization, I shall share the thought that God is my Ice Capades Partner!

Whenever I am down, he lifts me up, twirls me, spots me, dips me and dances with me. We are both in GORGEOUS SPANGLY SEQUINS REALNESS and we are TWIRLING and SASHAYING across the ice of our every day. Sometimes it is slippery, sticky, diggy and dirty. Sometimes its as smooth as glass, reflective, shiny and new. We have MUSIC and LIGHTS and MAGIC and we are ice dancing with an AUDIENCE, HELLO! Each time we step into the world, we are greeting our audience, people, so you better WERK that dance!!

I always think ice dancing is magic. How can two people seriously perform those magnificent tricks on sheer ice? How do they fly through the air and turn and spin and carry each other over their heads and fly higher and do crazy mo-fo axels with seamless effortless ease? Can I do that? Yes! I am magic too!

God is doing that with me now. Each day he is my Ice Capades partner! In the past, he was definitely my escapades partner, because I got myself into a few rather fabulous but not always so smart escapades in my life. Oh, the places I have been! Some were amazing, some maybe perhaps, not so. But I learned from each one and I made it through, I am here today to tell you to BELIEVE! GOD HAS YOU!

One my brilliant artistic besties from high school, Angela Hunter Geiss, has an amazing blog showcasing her art – divine and MAJESTIC MANDALAS called the 113 Mandala Journey.

They are literally, MAGIC. When you look into them, you go into an adventure! See how gorgeous they are ~  each one is so unique, colorful and intricate! They look like snowflakes, like ice dreams, like you can escape into them and TRUST with FAITH what will come to you and inspire you as you go into ACCEPTANCE at the ADVENTURE ahead. Allow yourself to VISUALIZE and have a new experience today. Trust that you will be shown a new inspiration and given a new action to share with the world now.

For each time, each moment, we trust we are magic, we are sharing ourselves with the greater world. When we trust God is with us, has us in our dance of each moment, we are lifting ourselves higher than we thought we could fly. When we give ourselves the GIFT OF LOVE, we are honoring the magic inside and saying YES to the PERFORMANCE OF LIFE and making it our own mandala, our own experience, our own gift, our own dance and our own MAGIC to share with the world! Blessed BE!

Solstice of Words

IMG_0927Blessed Be! Happy Winter Solstice! It is the day the sun stands still, the ‘shortest’ day of the year, the true New Year, the beginning of the new celebrations ~ the ‘longest’ night of the year. The time to spend creating new life, celebrating with family and friends and honoring birth and re-birth ~ it is blessed indeed!

I choose to honor the Goddess traditions. And in such, the Winter Solstice is very sacred to us who embrace the power of light and energy and words as manifestation, as magic, as spells as belief and as it is done. Our words are our magic. Words are energy in transition. As we so say it, so shall it BE!

And…I have to say… I am a frivolous goddess at times. I say things I don’t mean to say…the just ‘come out’ – without thinking of the message they send to those who are listening. Yesterday, I flippantly referred to the coffee bar attendant as a ‘ding-a-ling’ for over-microwaving my piece of coffee cake so it became a mound of runny, brown-sugared melty coffeepoundcake mush. Really Alicia? I’m the ding-a-ling for ordering such a thing! What was I thinking?

“…It’s always good to have something in your stomach when you drink a grande of coffee,” I said to my sweet sister-in-law. “Please have some…” I pushed it towards her.

“No, thank you,” she said simply, a real lady.

“Oh… I shouldn’t have called that woman a ‘ding-a-ling,’” I tell her, taking a bite, feeling like merde. Even though I didn’t make the comment to the attendant directly, it was unkind just to toss it off into the atmosphere.  “I’m the ding-a-ling for ordering this…” I give myself the absolution as I took another bite…now I have to finish it all by myself! Two words, my friends: Cray! Cray!

And of course, I felt like shitey for some time. I know better! I was being flippant and unthinking and just saying things that don’t matter and have no purpose or manifestation in the world except to project my unthinkingness. Take the onus of me and point it towards someone else. Shirk the responsibility and hide it in the form of silly meanness!

I made an effort to be much more pausey-be-fore-speaking throughout the rest of the day. I made an effort to exact kindness upon each person I came in contact with thereafter. I made an effort to see Goddess and God in each person I interacted with and in those passing by me – for when I call someone a name, I am saying the same to our Creatrix Being – however you and I understand she, he or it. I was making amends. I was asking for real absolution. Each moment is a teaching moment as many people of awareness like to say. But poof! It is gone and here, everyone, we have a new one! This one is even brighter, more shiny and brand new!

Today, I am in full understanding that Winter Solstice is a time to stand still for the moment and watch the Sun throughout the day. Solstice means the sun stands still. Each moment it is making a new moment happen that we can see clearly because the light is so bright. We can see the good, the bad and the ugly all at once and we can honor the choice to choose differently and heal and turn it all around.

It is the magic of the moment that we honor and it is a lovely exercise in active, aware meditation ~ of creating a spell of love and life and light and manifestation. Of choosing our words to impart our intention and setting that intention into the atmosphere. What are “New Year’s Resolutions” but spells for the coming year! Make them lovely!

This morning, I stepped outside and took this photograph of the bird cloud in the sky. Look how the bird soars and will change in moments as the sun moves. So shall we soar throughout the day making magic and spells and using words that are meaningful and charming and exciting and beautiful and purposeful and brilliant and kind and generous and honorable and considerate. We have the vocabulary. We have the understanding. We have the technology of our brains and mouths and language. Choose and be chosen. And most of all today, BE LOVELY! It’s a holiday after all – A HOLY DAY!

Enjoy and have a blessed Winter Solstice Day in every way! Xoxo
