It begins

March 4, 2019

It begins with healing the Self / the plants watch me grow / I ask for understanding / follow intuition with closed eyes / I have known the noose, the scissors, the knives & welcomed their scars / holding this life together / I fear letting go of the judgement & anger / if I slide the weight of pain from these shoulders & lift my face to the sun / what am I? / what remains? / I cannot trust others when I do not trust myself / I cannot trust what I do not know / my heart bleeds leaves / I am bound to this earth / I ask for understanding / the plants watch over me / it begins with healing the Self.

Part of a collaborative series with the utterly wonderful artist @wolfmumma ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ so much love for this talented womanโ€™s work.

    This is divine Sophie – love your work. Love how Andy and you make it all work for yourself in the van. My husband and 3 daughters are going to return to live (and homeschool) on our sailboat again soon… I can relate to the places of your soul for I have visited there too at times.
    Keep going and growing and blooming Sophie! Love light and blessings. Katja

      Ah! A sailboat! What adventures your family will have – I love your bravery and determination to live life on your own terms. This is the best lesson anybody can teach their children. Can I follow your travels online anywhere? Much love and thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx

    Yes, Sophie – I do have what I call an online diary / place where I collect things of interest and where I put pictures and some of my poetry.
    Safe travels – may we see each other out there between the blue lines of where heaven and water meet one day. xx
