the season is shifting.
Wind blowing in the trees. Windows open, cool and dark. Awakening. Autumn calls.
What have you learned this year?
What will you take with you now, on this new journey of decay, of furling back inwards?
What will you compost
as the darkness creeps slowly in
and the full moon shines a new and silvery light
over everything you know?
Your body knows the answers.
Your body remembers the answers.

On this autumn equinox, my personal new year, my most precious moment of reflection, I commit to these learnings. I commit to digging deeper, to exploring further, to finding my way towards truly integrating this budding wisdom.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
