How has your week been so far? Mine has brought me back into contact with two talented friends, internationally known photographer Randy Jay Braun of Maui, and poetry goddess and baker extraordinaire, Judyth Hill. Both teach as well as practice their crafts. I first met and studied with Judyth in Santa Fe and would love to take one of her workshops in San Miguel de Allende where she now lives. Just as I would love to travel with Randy on one of his photography sojourns in Provence this summer! A girl can dream can’t she…Blonde always said “dreaming is free”. In the meantime I thought I’d combine one of Randy’s recent photo’s with one of Judyth’s recent poems for your sensory pleasure and nourishment. XO Sabrina
CALIBRATIONS OF INTIMATE DISTANCE
The night turns on its invisible wheels….
in the sensual kitchen: kisses of longitude and lassitude.
By dark, bake stars,
stitch stories across 2 Americas.
Before maps and after maps,
such scales as the heart knows,
make a lucid measure,
carbon married to a complicated sugar,
tempered simple by passionate campsite.
Curl up and sleep, I’ll tend the silence, stir the coals.
Porque no? A watched dream simmers.
I’ll wear water and the fragrance of jonquils,
come to you, a journey of years and velvet decorum.
Charmed particles turn, miles apart
in the hands of the Divine.
I cannot stop the crazy joy in my breathing,
become lover to the verve of voluptuous lightening.
Let’s catch fire!
Everything tastes sudden, then slowly
” By replacing the eyes iris with a blue, cloud-filled sky in False Mirror, Magritte challenges us to question what we see and what we think we know. Is the sky a reflection of what the eye is seeing? Is the eye in fact an opening into another reality? Are we looking at an inner vision, or something else entirely? One thing is certain: Magritte’s The False Mirror is an invitation to look at the world differently.”
I love my Aromaland oil warmer. It is made in the USA and only costs $9.99!
This is my new Moleskin journal cover….made with water-soluble crayons, gesso, washi tape, and ephemera. It looks even better in person because you can see all the “imperfections”.
On the Path
It looks like something out of Alice and wonderland
“To find your own way is to follow your bliss. This involves analysis, watching yourself and seeing where real deep bliss is — not the quick little excitement , but the real deep, life-filling bliss.” – Joseph Campbell
