The Shape of a Life

Early in the Speak the Spark program Leah asked us to get a long piece of paper and map out the story of our personal lives without using any words. A life story told entirely through symbols and images. I loved this assignment! It was the perfect excuse to create with imagery again after an Continue Reading →

Poem for Change

Right in the middle of the undoing and redoing of my personal/professional transformation, my sister, Cristina Cabeza-Kinney, hosted a radical, beautiful, deeply moving poetry event in synch and synergy with the many 100 Thousand Poets for Change events happening around the world.

Musings on the Kali Yuga

It’s the Kali Yuga…accept it and let it go. Here we are…born into these times and these bodies…these stories…given the skills and the strengths appropriate to our challenges in each moment, whether we believe it or not. The empire is declining…the walls are crumbling…Kali is sweeping through this world with her fierce compassion…leveling all that Continue Reading →

Beauty as your J-O-B

the mountain grasses and wild flowers are a buzz with life this morning a whole universe at play amongst the tiny flying ones swarming and buzzing and fluttering in their own unique dimension pollinating the matrix of life and who knows what else busy and thriving, dive bombing flowers and barreling through the grass seed Continue Reading →

the forgetting

the wild plains got lost under the franchiseable American Dream greed paved the land and spread the patented seed where once the mighty buffalo roamed and now the flash and glare of digital billboards and neon signs screams out “buy now” against a sky where gazillions of stars are silently shining…invisible to the naked eye Continue Reading →
