Rituals and ceremonies have always been in my life
but I have long neglegted them 
this neglect naws at me in a very intense way
my dreams intensify 
blatantly reminding me I have work to do

so this past year I have re-introduced ritual and ceremony back into my life 
I have the know how it's just a matter of consistent practice
acceptance that this is part of who I am
interestingly ritual and ceremony, in the most sacred sense should NEVER be documented
those performing or partaking in ritual should never attempt to preserve the act
as an artist I am trying to come to terms with that
trying to see if there are ways to work with ritual and ceremony that do not diminish the authenticity and power of these events
while retaining the experince in a visual/audio/textual way

Old Woman Rock
Healing waters in the dark
mysterious lights appear
Healing waters found high on forbidden paths
bubbling up from deep
hot even in winter
signals and messages play on the surface
i feel completely complete here
