I had the pleasure of meeting artist Kerry Ray of Crystal and Leaf at a San Diego healing event and was so impressed with her creations that I was inspired to write about her work. Her booth was filled with sparkling fairy houses and doors (like door in the palm above); radiant jewelry and many other gifts which she says are portals or gateways to the promotion of abundant living. I could not wait to talk to her as I was immediately intrigued by the unique creations; the beauty of her intentions which I immediately felt through her unique "fairy world."
Speaking with Kerry, I learned how much she valued her creative life and being open to her "own uniqueness" and she puts it -- as well as bringing forth authentic expression through all that she does. Not only does she create beautiful fairy houses and jewelry, she also models in the nude for art students; she is a laughter coach/energy guide; she is a wife and the mother to a five year old daughter who is …
Sometimes in life you just wish people would do better. However, the version of better that you wish they would do is inevitably your version of better.

He literally let it fall in between the area between the platform and the train.
We have all made it through another year. The ups and downs, and the smiles and frowns. We made it through all of these things. Our programming tells us that there is another year ahead of us. The triggers all around us let us know that all of the past years crap is behind us as well. Isn’t it fascinating that most people cannot move until these triggers take affect?

When the ball drops, there is an overwhelming amount of joy and release. It is felt collectively and it reaches out across the world into all of its time zones. I am so amazed by its power. So if someone had decided that snatch was the first month of the year, then we wound be celebrating then. Of course we all know that March is not the start of the year. It’s just interesting to imagine that it was for a moment or so. I see the change in people and I also see how short lived it is. This is what gets my gears going.
