    In the seam of all the breaths of the day...there is a deep pause within me. It's hushed by all of the noise...stretched out underneath it all; the soft belly of my vulnerability. The days get more and more burdened with checklists and appointments and timelines that I'm already slipping on underfoot. I'm dropping so many things; and then feverishly ticking off boxes that were due long ago. To be met with no relief from the effort.
My escape is to retreat. To be cuttingly honest. To say "no" and to neglect all other duties, and where I find focus best is in the wild. In the forests and the waterfalls and the trails and the sea. It is not for a race to be fit; not for fame or high regard from others; not to make a statement or to project some forged persona. It is because my brain still chinks and rifts in the fog of anxiety and stress. Something roars within me so loudly that I lose my hearing. I lose my focus and my peace. I can't find air. But then I drive. And the sunshine is winnowing across my children's faces as they cackle and shriek with pure elation; teasing and goading each other on. The air is cool as it howls and warbles over the glass of my window. My hips sway with the axels as they shift their weight across the terrain. And somehow I find I'm attuned. I can focus on Otis and Fern in a different way in the wild. I can take longer breaths. I can find new mental holds to cling to. I can cultivate more peacefulness and intention when my mind is soothed. This is why I'm late to things. Why I lose grip with schedules and appointments and other people's timelines. This is why I cannot find peace in the pace that I see set by so many other mothers. I'm not that mother. I'm me. And I know I'm loving my children with wild affection and noble intentions. And if I'm just keeping my head above water, I hope that it's because I'm bobbing alongside the raft I've built for them. 
Because raising souls is beautiful even in it's madness. It will undo every selfish part of my will and forge me into something truly noble. And I am so proud of who I am to them; with them.

    It may be hard to see but in front of the women across the street is a homeless tent. Portland has one of the highest homeless populations and many people may forget why. The occupy movement. They rounded up homeless all over the west coast and brought them into the anti banking movement to have more people behind them but when the movement left they left the homeless behind. And Portland hasn’t been able to find any meaningful solutions like rent control or helping people get jobs. Theirs a few community gardens and tiny house projects but it’s not enough. Also the lines on the road are from the max. #portland #oregon #clouds #architecture #buildings #cityscape #city #trees #crane #sidewalk #publictransportation #maxline

    Полюбуйтесь друзья, восхитительной красотой природы!!!😍🌞👀
Ущелье реки Колумбия-является каньоном на реке Колумбия в Тихоокеанской северо-западной части Соединённых Штатов . 
Река вьется на запад через каскадный хребет , образуя границу между штатом Вашингтон на севере и Орегоном на юге.🇺🇸🌍🌞

    This is the center of a panoramic image compiled from about 70 images. One of my favorite places of all time #oneontagorge in #oregon 
I miss doing these types of images.

    A part of me feels like I should have started this account in the future once I'm a stronger artist the other part of me wants to document it all to put my growth on blast (not now but to come!) You can't tell by a picture but I've learned so much today while working on this #littleprince piece. What you CAN tell is I definitely struggled. I had trouble with my ways of stretch, feeling when I should pull vs push a line, a few issues with pressure, and I can't stress enough that i struggled with self confidence. Tomorrow I'm starting new. Going to drink more water, eat a bigger meal and shake out the nerves when neccessary. This post is not only to broadcast my newest piece (4/50) but to say that if your are 100% comfortable your while life you are not living. If a challenge scares you it only means you have something to lose thus you have every reason to fight and concoure.. to succeed and I will not let my dreams be something that remains only in sleep but I WILL put them in #EternalInk ;) #ifitsyourdreamdontwait #littleprincetattoo #thesnakeswallositspreywhole #snake #elephant #learningcurve #nosetothegrindstone #dreams #dreamsinink #aspiringtattooartist #supportyourlocalartists #artitsoforegon #pnw #Oregon

    Me looking at the beer line realizing I’m not getting a beer anytime soon. - a sad but true Whisky Fest story.
