“And then there are the cravings.. Oh, la! A woman may crave to be near water, or be belly down, her face in the earth, smelling the wild smell. She might have to drive into the wind. She may have to plant something, pull things out of the ground or put them into the ground. She may have to knead and bake, rapt in dough up to her elbows.
She may have to trek into the hills, leaping from rock to rock trying out her voice against the mountain. She may need hours of starry nights where the stars are like face powder spilt on a black marble floor. She may feel she will die if she doesn’t dance naked in a thunderstorm, sit in perfect silence, return home ink-stained, paint-stained, tear-stained, moon-stained.”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves
I am beyond thrilled to release these photos into the wild. We were hiding in a little secret garden and what came of that…is this art! It is so important to fill your soul with the life that makes it bloom. Please listen to your intuition, heart, soul, and deepest desires.
Thanks to my beautiful model and incredibly talented photographer friend, Becca – you are the best encourager and I’m so glad to know you.
