Follow Me.

by willow on March 4, 2014


Follow me into the starry realm of dreams. I am the one who makes her own path and leaves a faint trail for you to follow. I guide you back to your original wholeness, your fundamental freedom. I show you your missing pieces, how to thread yourself together again.

I am the dark night of the soul and the light within that night.

Deep in your veins I flow.

let go.

by willow on February 20, 2014

golden eternity.

She let go.

She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear.

She let go of the judgments.

She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.

She let go of the committee of indecision within her.

She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice.

She didn’t read a book on how to let go.

She didn’t search the scriptures.

She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.

She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go.

She didn’t journal about it.

She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.

She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.

She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didn’t call the prayer line.

She didn’t utter one word.

She just let go.

No one was around when it happened.

There was no applause or congratulations.

No one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing.

Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort.

There was no struggle.

It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.

It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

A small smile came over her face.

A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

It has been snowing like crazy the last couple days. Today we were stuck inside all day, so I am slowly getting my other blog going a bit. It will be vegan food, thoughts and conceptual photography. I am booked once a month doing a doggie Photo Booth at a local venue and I just bought the boards for the background. I am brainstorming ideas and also hope to book something every sunday with the Photo Booth. I think it will be cool.

My Le Howl Photography blog is still in the works. It will be strictly photo work over there, unlike here where there are thoughts, and ideas and you know…

all my inspired ideas ;)

ps. you can go ahead and add my animal photography FB page, though! go here!





smells of times past.

by willow on February 13, 2014

Memories are in music. Memories are in food. Memories in the people who brought these different senses in my life.
I have never had a good relationship with food. I met someone a few months ago that changed that for me, mostly. He was also vegan and taught me really how to cook with herbs, spices, flavors, stalks – embracing the food, letting it breath into me, sitting with it, chewing completely and being grateful.

But just like anything in life – there is a beginning and an end. After that relationship ended, I hadn’t been able to cook… until today.
I was taken back by the smells (it smells oh so good), this was our favorite, simple, cheap go to dish. I felt like I jumped a thousand sticks high today. It’s amazing how such simple things can make you feel like you are moving forward and can conquer the world. Even if it is just food.


For now… let me share this dish with you.
I don’t like to wash dishes, so I like to keep pans and such to a minimal.
First: heat the pan with olive oil and put minced garlic in pan. Then take the leaves of the kale off the stems and cut up the stems into tiny pieces and add that to garlic to cook for a bit. Add some spices and tamari if you you like. I then added the mushrooms and let that cook for a while. The last step is adding the kale leaves and mustard and stirring them until done.
I really could have done without the bread, but I am pmsing and bread is comforting to me.
Next time I will photograph the steps. I hope you like this as much as I do…
