A close up #vignette of our Laredo Convention Center. The project is defined by a series of monumental gateways at the East, West and South. The parabolic arch and filigree #facade merge historic and contemporary language to root this project in the Laredo context : a community of rich past and ambitious future
Hey guys. Tomorrow night we have another installment of my open mic happening at @mysticwaterkavabar. This will be 1 of 2 remaining open mics happening in 2018. You never know how much you love something until it’s gone. Don’t make that mistake. Swing by tomorrow night.
Journaling after yoga, voice and movement work this morning:
"Holding, hugging, loving myself. Not overly needed today, not like the sinking-into-the-floor feeling I get, but a reminder perhaps. Look after myself as I step into this week (week!) of work. Keep one eye on my soul, my energy - always gently guiding myself back to the path of intuition and care.
What am I feeling today? A little overwhelmed and cowed at the enormity of what in trying to do. Let it go, let it go. I am exactly where I am supposed to be. My message is becoming clearer every day. I can share this journey with my community - they will see me. If they like what they see, if they are inspired, they will stay. If not, I am not the right fit for them. And that is as it should be.
When I'm following my heart I'm at peace. Where is my heart guiding me today? My heart says "flow". What am I drawn to? Some kind of artwork - painting or similar. Find a stimulus. My gaze keeps coming back to "The Women's Wheel of Life". Some archetype work today then? I feel a bit panicked about this - I have so much else to do! Develop Instagram - my blog!
Connect. I see this word on the back of my now tv hub card. Connect. Everything comes back to this - connecting with myself, my true self. Connecting with women who want the same for themselves - a deep connection, a rootedness in their soul. Explore how to authentically connect with myself and other women on their journeys.
Okay, my heart is feeling good about this! I feel it in the space that has opened up in my chest - like a door swinging open, an eye opening. I feel more whole and ready to embrace the day."
Are you feeling ready to embrace the day? What do you need?xx
Staying rooted at Irie Sunday last night with some live art surrounded by Reggae music, delicious food and good vibes all night. Always an inspiring atmosphere to create in when I’m around the Irie Sunday fam. #starvingartistph#iriesunday#rooted#organic#rasta
Grounding myself as the sun set on day 2 of our #groundedasanas challenge. My little man fell asleep on the trip home, so I took the opportunity to do yoga by the car. Was hoping for a colorful sunset, but tonight the crisp light blue and soft yellow, was quickly overtaken by deep blues and black. Beautiful nevertheless. I created my own sequence, following the needs of my body, and enjoying the peaceful night air.
Today was Tadasana, or mountain pose🏔☃️ .
This is a foundational shape, often the first pose in a sequence, and many times a pose simply taken to transition into another. The true activity of Tadasana is unapparent to the naked eye. The power in this pose comes from breath and alignment. It’s meant to invoke stillness, and the strength of a mountain.
Simply standing the right way helps prevent injury and imbalances that can develop throughout the body. Standing conciously in mountain pose creates a lightness in the body which in turn creates agility in the mind. This pose is great to root you to the earth, and invite steady energy into your body.
Now sipping on chamomile tea, everyone is asleep and it’s my turn to completely wind down. After this post I’ll be taking @gypsetgoddess “Sweet Dream Flow” on @alo.moves. Goodnight to everyone🌙✨ .
Get ready for tomorrow, Vrksasana!

Sister Shianna Smith @__queenshi__ shared a powerful statement during the last online Queens 4 Christ, Inc. gathering!
YOU + God = Majority!
Mark 9:2-8 shows how three disciples went on a mountain to spend intimate time with Jesus, for their personal transformation.
It's okay to spend time on YOU. But when you do it with God, the direct love, trust, and confidence recieved by the Him would be so rooted that it can't shaken by others. The overflow can show the world that they too can be transformed from within.
YOU can be transformed.
YOU can make a difference.
YOU can because God can.
