Swirl Writing

Fascinating ancient word…Alchemy...

With a sense of playfulness, I am approaching this New Year in a new way, I am practicing more ” present ” time mindfulness, being super mindful of being in the Now.

This isn’t easy, I’d rather daydream, there is little time for that unless I am fully in it, which would be in the Now in a daydream, Day Dreaming being useful practice as is Multitasking, but being in the Now as a Day Dreaming Multitasker can be confusing.

What gets accomplished if the Now of my Now intention is to reach a creative goal while I am DayDreaming ? Is it possible ? I call these paragraphs, swirl writing, as I am thinking of how to express the Alchemy of my day, leaning into the Mystery of going with the Flow in the Now.

Today I noticed the Alchemy of my intentions as I was flowing from one Now moment to the next, even allowing for intentional Day Dreaming and Goal achievement, by the end of the day I did complete one intentional task while multi-tasks continue to float about me like the Sorcerer’s Apprentices brooms…

There may be more to say, but maybe not, as Alchemy transformed my day with new connections, fresh perspective, the courage to dismantle some roadblocks (aka limiting beliefs ) providing energy to complete long term creative goals.

Being a Creative goes hand in hand with Curation.

Being creative in Analog and Digital is a unique bridge that I have chosen to cross, I am thrilled that the Dream Conduit Community is leading education in this area for participating in Web3. I am an edge dwelling baby boomer, stepping into the crowning rays of wisdom years. In my youth, Technology was shared by the Jetsons & Star Trek, suggested realty was that Dick Tracy was the only one with a wrist phone, my imagined visions of the possible as expressed artful projects lived in my imagination, now technology has advance so much that I can created even beyond those youthful imagined virtual landscapes from my DayDreams.

Benefits of Conscious Creativity, supports being here now…and when you take it to the page, you can smash & transform to create anew as you take your inquiry into the Creative, with images, crayon and paint, self awareness is supported as well as mental health and visionary insights.

There is a trend to discover and announce your word (s) for the year, my first choice was Treasure…then Groov’n popped up… I’m claiming to live more intentionally with these words in 2023…Treasure…. a treasure, treasured people, places, memories, experiences and Groov’n, a little more wordplay and I will arrive at a Groov’n Treasure Trove !

Curiousity of new worlds and emerging media pathways led me to inquire and learn about the Blockchain…. first stop after the first year of Covid stay-at- home time was Clubhouse. Hours of listening to hallway conversations eventually led to The Dream Conduit. I’ve been hanging out with the Dreamers ever since I heard voices that resonated. Read more here… As my story flows I ended up participating their Art-a-Thon last Summer, my piece was accepted as a part of a juried group, and voila, my contribution NFT was minted and collected !

In October I put my hat in the ring for the learning experience of creating a unique generative profile image with a group of fellow artist, each of us created from our unique point of view resulting 500 unique images per artist…quite the process in deconstructive to reconstructive imagination within my art making. Come join in the fun, meet the contributing artists in the Clubhouse room this month as the project launches.

Each Thursday in January, 9:00 pm Eastern, on Clubhouse The Curation Conduit with Lianna Adams

Create your New Moon treasure with me as the New Year continues to shine its light !

treasure (n.)

mid-12c., tresor, from Old French tresor “treasury, hoard, treasure” (11c., Modern French trésor), from Gallo-Roman *tresaurus, from Latin thesaurus “treasury, treasure” (source also of Spanish, Italian tesoro), from Greek thēsauros “store, treasure, treasure house,” related to tithenai “to put, to place,” from reduplicated form of PIE root *dhe- “to set, put.” In Middle English also thresur, etc.; modern spelling is from 16c. Replaced Old English goldhord, maðm. General sense of “anything valued” is recorded from c. 1200. Treasure hunt is first recorded 1913. For treasure trove, see trove.

treasure (v.)

late 14c., “to amass treasure; to store up for the future,” also figurative, “regard as precious, retain carefully in the mind,” from treasure (n.). Related: Treasuredtreasuring.

Naturally leading to Treasure Trove !

trove (n.)

1888, from treasure trove (c. 1550), from Anglo-French tresor trové (late 12c.), translating Latin thesaurus inventus, literally “treasure found.” Originally any precious metal object one finds hidden whose owner is unknown. As this usually meant ancient hoards, the term came to mean “treasure hoard” in popular use. Rendered treasure found from mid-15c. French trove is past participle of trover “to find,” from Old French trovertorver, of unknown origin, perhaps from Latin turbare “to move” (hence “to seek for”) or Medieval Latin *tropare “to compose, sing.”

Funny how a word will pop in ! First, Groov’n then Groovy…truly throwback words.. naturally the music of the The Young Rascals…easy and smooth…


Groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
I can’t imagine anything that’s better
The world is ours whenever we’re together
There ain’t a place I’d like to be instead of

Movin’ down a crowded avenue
Doin’ anything we like to do
There’s always lots of things that we can see
You can be anyone we like to be
All those happy people we could meet

Just groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
No, no, no, no

We’ll keep on spending sunny days this way
We’re gonna talk and laugh our time away
I feel it coming closer day by day
Life would be ecstasy, you and me endlessly

Groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
No, no, no, no
Groovin’, uh huh…

The Web3 world has its unique vocabulary, I recommend Googling a phrase/word whenever these new words show up which will usually yield a description and usage explanation.

Wishing on a Star

Sometimes, dreams do come true. My sense of things now, is that with grit & brawn combined with steady hard effort, good friends, seen and unseen angels and community, Dream~Seeds burrow deeply into the earth, so that when your prayers touch the hull cracking that seed your dream potential will become deeply deeply ever so deeply rooted into the possible.

I’ve dreamt of a different tomorrow for quite some time, in my world that meant a different landscape of presence , a landscape would offer me something unknown, unseen yet familiar. I’ve landed in central Michigan, embraced by the Great Lakes awaiting a chilly winter in a landscape that thrills my being.

So far the weather is balmy, sometimes rainy with a bite. The scent of moisture wafting thru the leaf shed is incredible. The autumn colors outstanding in their brilliance. Pumpkin patches, corn fields, and forests greet me. Also, dark nights, getting lost and crossing thresholds of initiation abound.

It’s taken a bit of time to get into the computer groove again, yet here I am…and tomorrow we are gathering to create during our New Moon Magic creative circle, you are invited to join …click here

Happy Halloween !


Tides of change continue moving thru our lives, whether in our deep internal landscapes, our physical home environments AND our communities. Right now the whorls of change are tapping every known structure that we can name or identify. Perhaps it has always been this way if we were to see the Universe from galaxies away.

Our interstellar address resides deep in the heart of the Laniakea Supercluster. The times call for more active imagination than ever before, with each of us creating our unique renaissance moments.

My personal journey is creating a story arc of relocation from the high desert mountains of Santa Fe to the forested lands of the Great Lakes. An adventure in changing landscapes!

How is your story arc informing your life ? Does your creativity inform your story or visa versa ? Perhaps it is all in the weave of what rises up from our inner~scapes. Images within and without form reality in some alchemical way….I have sense that we are more involved than we realize in our manifestation outcomes…perhaps our creative voice calls in more than images on the page? From decorating our homes to shopping for recipe ingredients we call in what wasn’t there before.

As the boxes fill, full of crayons, paints and paper, I realize how blessed I am to have an active creative practice and materials. Now comes a new challenge of creating with minimal materials for a wee bit of time. One of the benefits of Cosmic SmashBooking™ and JourneyCircles™ is the contained use of space.

Even more, I am blessed with the privilege of leading online Zoom groups in Come to the Story™ blended creative practice. Where my developed skills in Creative Depth get to weave with art making, intentional creativity and collage.

As a group we have explored our lives unfolding in the creative flow of consciously reclaiming and re-storying ancient myths and patterns of conditioned patriarchal fields. Creative interplay supports the Re~claiming of hidden or simply quiet aspects of our voices, our stories , hopes and dreams. Intentionally setting out to chart new territory. The Constellations of the Zodiac have been our guide. Libra, full of hidden clues guides our way this month as we take to the page !

This October will be full of seasonal glory, leaves will change, pumpkins will be carved…I am taking the time to move, but first, on Saturday, September 24th, New Moon Magic~Libra, your are invited to join our Creativity Circle at 10:00 am MST for a bit of guided Cosmic SmashBooking™ .

Who is the goddess of Sirius?

Sopdet is the ancient Egyptian name of the star Sirius and its personification as an Egyptian goddess. Known to the Greeks as Sothis, she was conflated with Isis as a goddess and Anubis as a god.”

Featured snippets from the web

Isis Sirius

The ancient Egyptians had a very special relationship with the star Sirius. Sirius (Sopdet) was the heavenly representation of Isis, who in the Egyptian pantheon was the daughter of Re and the sister and wife of the god Osiris. Osiris in turn was associated principally with the stars of Orion’s belt.

Sirius: The brightest star in Earth’s night sky

By Elizabeth Howell Ailsa Harvey published January 27, 2022

Excerpt from article https://www.space.com/21702-sirius-brightest-star.html

” The star is present in ancient astronomical records of the Greeks, Polynesians and several other cultures. The Egyptians even went so far as to base their calendar on when Sirius was first visible in the eastern sky, shortly before sunrise. According to Joe Rao of Space.com, the Egyptians called Sirius the “Nile Star,” because it always returned just before the river rose and so announced the coming of the floodwaters that would nourish their lands.”

Ancient Lion Goddess, Sekmet

Sekhmet, also spelled Sakhmet, in Egyptian religion, a goddess of war and the destroyer of the enemies of the sun god Ra. Sekhmet was associated both with disease and with healing and medicine.

Our creativity circle of New Moon Magic Cosmic Smashbook™ Oracle in blended practice with Creative Depth Process and Intentional Creativity will continue to explore the emergent Divine Feminine and re-imagining of the patriarchy thru the lens of creative process, conversation and transformative vision.

Moon Magic

Today’s New Moon in Cancer brings forward inquiry of self care and tender nourishment.

How do you nourish your Being whilst these times of turbulence ?

How do you stand in your Being while winds blow strong ?

Standing in tears and disappoint, how do you bring Joy and Hope back into your heart ?

And, if indeed you have found your center of sweet softness held in centered compassion, how can you hold the vision of hope for others ?

These are questions asked in New Moon Magic, where we gather for a deeper dive into emerging inquiries, to create intuitively and spontaneously in our Cosmic Smashbooks™, read more here

I’ve been binge watching Grey’s Anatomy, Painting, Smashbooking & Rediscovering Poetry.

 “I Arise from Dreams of Thee

I arise from dreams of thee
In the first sweet sleep of night,
When the winds are breathing low,
And the stars are shining bright
I arise from dreams of thee,
And a spirit in my feet
Has led me – who knows how? –
To thy chamber-window, sweet!

The wandering airs they faint
On the dark, the silent stream, –
The champak odors fall
Like sweet thoughts in a dream,
The nightingale’s complaint,
It dies upon her heart,
As I must die on thine,
O, beloved as thou art!

O, lift me from the grass!
I die, I faint, I fall!
Let thy love in kisses rain
On my lips and eyelids pale,
My cheek is cold and white, alas!

My Heart beats loud and fast
Oh! press it close to thine again,
Where it will break at last!

 I Arise from Dreams of Thee by Percy Bysshe Shelley
