• The witness • She spoke of soul and smoke b • The witness •  She spoke of soul and smoke
but did not say a thing.
She simply let her eyes cry gold 
and learned to fly and sing.  I felt so lost, adrift, alone. 
North couldn’t tell me why. 
A scream was there, it tried to speak; 
I couldn’t hear, it died.  No music rang but we all heard 
the anguish in the sky.
Five thousand little diamond birds 
were made of butterfly. 
Flying by. 
Perhaps it’s all a lie.  “Staralfur, it’s safe in here”,
she whispered with a sigh. 
I’ve got your back, you do belong 
don’t let this entropy and song 
unravel broken mirror pieces. 
With stars you will align.  🌟

This lady came through with a certain “angel energy”. She made me feel calm and reassured somehow. Sending love your way friends. ❤️

When I get too freaked out about life, the state o When I get too freaked out about life, the state of the world and the future of my children, I paint and listen to Alan Watts. Sometimes the only thing I can do to calm down, is to 'zoom out faaaaaar' and try to see a 'bigger picture'. The control freak in me is VERY unimpressed with that approach and is like: "are you effing kidding me; GET ON CONTROLLING EVERYTHING AND SAFEGUARDING *THE ALL*", but zen Tam knows that freaking out about things out of your control actually makes things WORSE and doesn't solve anything, so she is a bit relieved and tries to go with flow, help where she can and sprinkle kindness along the way. 😅

Sat down to paint this evening to ‘shake off’ Sat down to paint this evening to ‘shake off’ all the stress of the past few months. This lady appeared. Thought I knew what she was trying to say, then suddenly in her hair, I saw ‘trees’. And ‘The Tree’ wanted to come forth. Of course, I’ve been massively worried about the climate and the amazon burning, so it’s no surprise this came up, but didn’t think I’d be painting about it. The tree branches *had* to go over her forehead and then suddenly looked like ‘veins’ - branches = veins = life force = intertwined. The hair and tree branches intertwined, plus star constellations in the sky all pointed towards: we are connected, there is no ‘this’ without ‘that’. We are dependent on nature, the trees, in all ways do we rely on nature. Everything is one and connected. In one of the collage pieces the words: ‘not afraid’ popped up. Felt like a message, so these words made it onto her forehead and so now this piece is titled: ‘Not Afraid’. Let’s not be afraid, and take action where we can to help this world. ❤️ PS. Not sure if it’s entirely finished, can probably work on it a bit more but wanted to share it fully at this stage.
I started an abstract painting on wood the other d I started an abstract painting on wood the other day, then a stag appeared. Quite like it, but might still make some changes to it, doesn't feel completely finished yet. I used to paint deer and stags a lot in my art journal, it was nice to revisit the stag. <3 (will be for sale, pls email hello@willowing.org for details). Xxx
The last 2/ 3 weeks have been both really joyful f The last 2/ 3 weeks have been both really joyful for me and also incredibly challenging. I feel like I've been going through a major emotional rollercoaster. Times are so different, challenging and strange right now and through it all there are still the amazing moments of compassion, joy, care, kindness, altruism and unexpected moments of true connection and progress. My frens: 2020 is not for the faint of heart, but apparently we don't have a choice riding this wave. I'm doing my best as I know all of you are too. I finally had some time this evening (after weeks of working until 3am / 4am/ 5am yes for reals) to do some art for 'just me'. To me this is an 'Indigo Child' with an energy of strength, courage, compassion and bright bright light. Of course it was her who came to 'sit with me' this evening. Big love to you all; if you're struggling: I see you. I understand. Hang in there. "We are all just walking each other home." - Ram Dass

For Life Book next month, we are going to work wit For Life Book next month, we are going to work with 'our shadow'. I'm a firm believer in the idea that our 'shadow selves' are actually in great need of our love, kindness & attention. Once understood, seen and heard, that 'scary dark monster' (shadow self) will turn out to be a loveable, sweet and cute little thing that just needed to receive empathy and compassion. After having worked through a shadow aspects of ourselves, we create this cute little monster. He represents the integrated, happier, shadow aspect of ourselves. It was a joy to create him, he makes me so happy. His cute little smoochie face is everything. 😍 Hope he makes you smile too. If you haven't joined Life Book yet, we begin Term 3 on September 7th and you can still join no problem! Sign up here: https://bit.ly/TamLB2020n (Or swipe up link in my stories/ profile ❤️)

Lately there have been personal issues I’ve been Lately there have been personal issues I’ve been emotionally wrangling with, also exhaustion and at times despair and anxiety around the state of the world and “the future”. This evening I hit an emotional threshold and decided to STOP EVERYTHING and do art to work through mah shiz. Look who showed up with loving kindness and a listening ear. This cutie pie foxadoodlydoo. :) If you are struggling emotionally: you are not alone. I recommend slowing down, sitting with your feelings, taking deep breaths, doing some art and focusing on the here now. Much love. 💕

It’s been a bit of a rough day for me today. Ove It’s been a bit of a rough day for me today. Overwhelm. Anxiety. Pit in my stomach. Confusion. Numb. Surreal. Worry. Eventually spending time with my big kid Dylan, helped ground me again (he’s very in the now and loves life). This evening I painted my heart out with more loose watercolour play. Hey friends: it’s ok to struggle. It’s ok to not be ok. I get it. Feel your feels. You, we, will get through this. I love you. ❤️
