Life Images Magazine
Once upon a time there was a woman (this would be me) who knew it was time to change her life. She traveled for two years wandering beautiful lands. Then she settled in the wilds of NW Montana. Twas time to make money and instead of starting up one of her previous businesses, such as the beaded jewelry she did for over twenty years while raising her son or Cranial Sacral therapy, she thought "I will try a new business honoring the beauty I find in our planet".
Imagine giving birth to a business that demands one spends time wandering in nature, perfect! As a passion this lady had been making greeting cards in honor of special occasions for at least ten years. In response she would hear "you must sell these". She hoped with all her heart that these folks knew what they were speaking of. And so the birth of 'Spirithelpers' was born. Named in hopes that the recipient of a beautiful image would experience their spirit to be uplifted.
Earlier this year she submitted photos and poetry to a wonderful art magazine called Life Images by Somerset. To tie this in with Sunday's Scribblings, the Happy Ending (or maybe beginning) is that yesterday the mail held the first issue that would contain two of her images and a poem as well. So with the full moon upon us and Solstice arriving it is time to celebrate.
The leading image (above) is not one of my photos, but the cover of the magazine that contains my photography.
The following is my photography as you will find it in Life Images:
Music on the roof sings
to an ancient rhythm in my heart
heavens release a cleansing rain
then brilliant rays of light
I am drawn to wander taking in the beauty
enlivened by the air
I spy liquid jewels
that adorn a silken home
I lay on the damp earth
with the elegance of
raindrops in a lacy web
pondering: is this the origin of jewelry
This bald eagle I came upon this winter, on a cold gray day:
Thank you for sharing in the celebration of my first magazine premiere!
