“This song fell from a portal in the sky into my lap, or should I say unto my bivouac sack as I lay quietly under the stars, on night 3 of my solo vision quest in the desert mountains of eastern Washington, Summer Solstice year 2005.
I had been praying for a vision to guide my life, my practice as an apprentice to the Spirits, visiting the wild desert land of the region in which I have made my home since arriving upon the sands of the Great Mother Herself.
I had chosen to sleep on the third night, instead of staying up all night praying, I asked to be shown what I needed to know in the Dreamtime.
I awoke in the blackness, greeted by the stars, a large triangular constellation began speaking to me. When the voice continued for more than two sentences I realized this was what I had been longing for….. scrambling for the small notepad and pencil stub that was stashed under the corner of my ground tarp, in the darkness I scratched out the voices of a people echoing the wisdom from Stars to Earth.
With this message came a flow of light so brilliantly blue, resonating my heart and my hands.
My heart and my body filled with gratitude, I knew I had been given the gift of a lifetime. A song. A vision. I would not leave the desert empty handed, and so I must give this gift, from the Star People, to the Earth People.”
Later the next year, this song became the opening track of my first album, “Singing My Soul Home”, produced by my fledgling record label “Journey Home Records” in 2006.
The process of writing, performing, recording, producing and offering my music to the world has been a life changing, empowering, creative experience. And now several years later I am exploring the creative journey of blending my music with visual art, photography and painting.
Dreaming Universe (the video) contains my own photography. And the upcoming video, “Goddess Woman Tree” is represented by a tribe of talented painting women that I am deeply grateful for. I’m aiming for the video’s release before the end of 2012.

Join me on the Journey. Heart, Earth, Art, Love, Soul.
