I am excited to say that today marks my 29th birthday :)

 I feel so very grateful to have made it this far into the game and today wanted to  honour and send gratitude to three of my most constant companions on this journey so far: my body, my mind and my spirit...
*Dear Body - I am humbled by your resilience, your forgiving nature, your desire to live and thrive despite whatever comes your way, your strength. When I consider the traumas and challenges you have experienced over these years together, I feel both a sense of sadness at all that you have endured and also such a huge sense of gratitude for your perserverance through this all. I love and honour you with deepest respect and appreciation - you are the vehicle through which I currently get to participate here on Earth and I desire to do my very best to help you stay strong, present and healthy for the rest of the game here.
*Dear Mind - now where would we be without your incessant commentary, chatter and observations? ;) Thank you for your insights, your humour, your creativity, your kindness  and all the funny little games and tricks that you share... While I am saddened that for so many years you were immersed in a mostly other-than-uplifting stream of input/feedback loops on which to reflect and co-create, I am sincerely delighted to now note how rich, gentle, generous and playful your presence tends to feel. Thank you for your flexibility, your willingness to let go, your attention-to-detail and your clarity. May I do my best to help you stay clear, positively-orientated and supple in the coming years...
*Dear Spirit - thank you for your profound gifts of intuition, honesty, care, resilience and upliftment. Thank you for reminding me so gently through all the challenges that you are here, that I have support and that all, ultimately, is well. I breathe deeply with gratitude into the space that you hold here and honour your desire to connect, share and help inspire others. Thank you for your sincerity, directness and gentle reminders that it's all just a game...may I do my best to bring us all along safely, happily and healthily as this game continues to unfold...

It is fascinating to me, to reflect on the various elements that apparently go to make up "me" - we seem to be so multi-layered, multi-faceted, complex in some way...each part with its own role(s) to play and contribute, intermingling to create the impression of one unit from the outside... Personally I am very grateful for all the parts that go to make up "me" and currently contribute to the flow I am experiencing here, which I enjoy very much and feel blessed to be co-creating... 

So, as I set off around the sun again this Wednesday on the anniversary of my "Birth-On-Earth", I breathe a deep breath of appreciation for every part of my being and radiate brightest blessings throughout my whole energy field and beyond, to all of YOU - may you all feel and acknowledge the blessings of your life flow here and truly appreciate the wonder of these embodied experiences - enjoy... :)
thank you angela for this text- i made it my own and use it as loving affirmations to myself, my body mind and spirit!

i am passionate about food and nature
i am a globetrotter
i am a journey walker
and right now i am in the middle of finishing art school.
can't get enough self-loving affirmations.
i need to stay focused and stop questioning.
am starting to read the sun food diet success again-
finally bought a diary/calendar;)
i am sitting in front of this mass of data, pictures i never ordered or showed.
on monday is the 2nd meeting with my professor.

Are we what we are?
For my  final art school project, I will present a mixed media project consisting of three elements: a documentary video, a series of photographs and a booklet. The topic of the project relates to my encounter and response to my own illness, a healing trip I undertook subsequently and the response I have developed.

The short documentary video will include a narrative of my journey through South America, as will interviews with raw food advocates. 

The Photographic material will also feature images from the ‘extended’ healing trip but will serve as a counterweight to the narrative of the video. It is intended to provide an insight into the somewhat metaphysical process of self discovery, evaluation and possible healing.

The booklet will put in a straight forward manner the actual ‘results’ of this reflective journey. It will serve as a road map for persons wishing to follow my steps and will include text, drawings and diagrams.

I am also considering an optional component of a performance action of self-imposed four weeklong Juice fast will be document on a daily basis and run in parallel with the presentation of the project.
