I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

10 Years After

For the last few days my soul has ached and my life just felt more sad then it should. It has been 10 years now and you would think that I would get used to this cycle of sadness that arrives every year just before the beginning of spring.

Even looking at the calendar last night left me confused rather then settled. You see, my angel daughter Jessica died March 20th 1997. It was the first day of spring. Makes that anniversary easy to remember except this year the first day of spring happens to be March 21-ugh. Something about when the vernal equinox falls- can't fool this body though- it remembers even when my consciousness questions.

Jessica has now been a memory longer then she was here on earth. Her broken body has now been ashes and lived in a teapot longer then her gentle spirit smiled with us here. While my soul aches for her and realizes that I can no longer hear that soft voice telling me she loves me, or smell her sweet breath, I can rejoice because I know she is in a far better place. Yes, 10 years ago we celebrated Jessica's Fly Away Day, a new birth day for her. Happy Birthday Baby! For more see here.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
