"It's in the stars / It's been written in the scars on our hearts / We're not broken just bent / And we can learn to love again" -Pink, Just Give Me a Reason
Cleaning the house, applying for jobs, filling out preschool applications, reading self-help books, learning to love again and being an overall badass.
That's ☝🏼what my day looks like.

Natures ‘Rock Jungle Gym’ | Valley of Fire State Park, NV. You can climb for days around the park - BUT NEVER DAMAGE NATURAL STRUCTURES. Be mindful of the weight we carry and where we place our feet - there are so many small creatures. Always remember to clean up and be responsible for the areas you camp and hike. #valleyoffire#valleyoffirestatepark#nv#explore#nature#t1d
I was thrilled to make this piece for a trade with a fellow artist, based on her gorgeous wedding photos from the Valley of Fire in the Nevada Desert 💕🔥 I hope it brings you lots of joy @thepitterpotter 🙏 Thank you for this opportunity. Here it is, mounted on a 19” copper pipe. The tapestry is 15” X 24”, made with mixed natural fibres including wool, alpaca, llama and silk. It includes loads of magical hand spun yarn by my mama @pearlalso, #thecosmicspindle and @girlwithasword, perfectly hand dyed yarns by @botanicalfibres and @fleeceandharmony, and perfect neutrals from @americooriginal, @briggslittle and @cascadeyarns. Next, some macrame 😍 for another super talented artist and then I’m going back to sea 😊🌊 #weavewierd#tapestry#desert#valleyoffire#nevada#novascotiaartist#lovewhatyoudo
I was burning up in the dry heat of The Valley of Fire, and as I was sitting atop this rock, that was totally illegal to climb, (Hey I’m not a saint. The punk and street kid in me still has middle fingers in the air at so called authority), I had this thought I jotted down while perched overlooking the Mohave Desert. The lust for alcohol and drugs is extreme escapism. The minds perception of drugs being an escape from the reality we perceive as unacceptable. Once our body doesn’t physically need it and we dry out, we have to make reality inside of us and around us acceptable in order to make drugs and alcohol no longer acceptable. What was once dry will soon become a vast ocean of love, contentment, and peace. In other words; we work spiritual matters as hard as we ever fucking worked to chase the false reality of drugs. There is no other way to be content and at peace. My favorite words in the Big book: “we are WILLING to grow along Spiritual lines.” The key word is “WILLING”. You have to release your mind from the traps it creates. We are the problem, but the beauty of it is, we are also the solution. We stop trying to swim in the Ocean or escape it. We drown in it, and become part of it, part of the spiritual universe. ✏️👽💫 #thesoberlife#sober#drugfree#sobriety#soberlife#addiction#recovery#spiritual#adventure#spiritualawakening#pma#alternative#fbf#valleyoffire
