Tammy | January 1, 2015 | 0 Comments
For the past two days I have been working on looking back and then looking forward.  That time of year and I have time off the work-for-someone-else job, so why not? I think of 2014 as a quiet year simply because I pulled everything back inside and hunkered…

The Holy Tussle

Tammy | December 29, 2014 | 0 Comments
And you who knows the story must be rewoven and retold, and that you and you alone have the power. It is time. Some days, my exact response to all this would be, "Oh, yeah? And exactly why is it time?" So for those of you who wonder why it is now time, what…

What is it you want to do with your one wild and precious life?

Tammy | December 23, 2014 | 0 Comments
That time of year folks – take a look back, a look at present and a look forward. For me it has been a wonderful year of trying new things (Patty Digh’s Life is a Verb Camp 2014), redoing my front yard and having new front steps put in so I can…

AEDM 23: Medusa – Rumble Strips

Tammy | November 23, 2014 | 0 Comments
Here is an amazing post that pretty much explains what I’ve been trying to say the past week, but says it way better: This past 2 weeks, the energy has seen a lot of us deep-diving.  Diving down into the depths of ourselves – our feelings, our…

Tammy | November 22, 2014 | 0 Comments
(What is more perfect illustration of traveling incognito than a mask?!) Gal friend, Tina Tierson (whom I mentioned in yesterday’s post of Wise and Wylde people in my life), sent along this dazzling interview with Nikki Giovanni, the poet.  An excerpt:…

Tammy | November 19, 2014 | 0 Comments
I collect them, you know. Untold Stories.  It isn’t That they’re untold really, it’s that They aren’t written Down.  I started because I am a woman.  Our stories Are found inside our bones, behind Smashed window panes and broken Doors, in bottles…

AEDM 18: Synchronicity

Tammy | November 18, 2014 | 0 Comments
It started with AEDM 15 – Raven Dreams a World and tracking the lineage of a new artwork over the arc of 20 years.  A door or my eyes were opened but suddenly all kinds of synchronicity started dropping into my life. Then I tell a friend about Brooke…

AEDM 16: Kiss the Frog So It Can Fly

Tammy | November 16, 2014 | 0 Comments
My REAL creative pursuit today was filling up two bins with kindling and raking half the yard.  I live in a forest, raking the yard is futile but it makes me feel great.  Along the way I discovered two japanese red maple infants, volunteers, that belong…

AEDM 11: Wylde Crone Rising

Tammy | November 11, 2014 | 0 Comments
The gifts you receive when you give yourself space make me wonder why I don’t do it more often. The Wylde Crone, who rises to meet us at the crossroads, is personified by Hecate who has over time mutated from benign (but powerful) to witchcraft, ghosts…
