Goodnight Twenty Eleven

I watch and experience the count down. This year had a dark side and a light side. Losing my mother was bitter sweet. Wild speculation and financial risks were scary. Traveling through New York, New Jersey, Mexico, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Alaska showed me that I love many people. I have a new Grandson Sam and a new home in New Orleans. My art work was exhibited in three cities; New Orleans, Astoria and Anchorage. There is more to come. My heart aches, but not so much. Lif!

Unleash The Ballerinas

I prepare for the onslaught. The infinite cycle of begin and end. Gracefully embracing both.

Facing Truth

My dreams were ominous. I woke up to the indigo sky. I'm facing truth. This is not an easy road. I'm following my heart. Alaska does not coddle. Willingly I step toward the future. Trusting conditions will improve.

Glorious Ponder

This day is bejeweled with sparkly snow. Icicle pendants drip as I weigh options. Magpie brought the message on her feathered wing. Word. Don't court danger. Got it.

When I Look Outside My Window

People's lives can be difficult. My life is teetering in freedom. Looking up I'm trusting in my step. I will not do what I don't want to do. Complicated and meaningless machinations. I'm in Alaska because there's less of that. Less crap. I'm in Alaska because it forces me to do the work. It's not an easy place I long for. I surrender everything and follow my heart. Enchanted by the view.

The Knowledge Of Life In Alaska

I seek peace. Being here is a great reminder. Cold, desolation, the dark. Every day is a strange and wonderful blessing. I find the Great Land mystical.

Monday Mood

I woke up Monday dreaming of you. When realizing I had no where to go I smiled. Deep in my covers I stare at the pine. Raven's croak and smeared grey clouds dance. A breeze has come to tell me secrets. Letting go is bringing tears to the well. Deep inside is the reservoir. "The perfection in theater is that it's over the second it's done." ~William Hurt

Family Time

It's life in the theatre. Not for everyone, but definitely for me. "I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being." ~ Oscar Wilde

Wonder of Wonders Miracle of Miracles

Clear day and birds are singing with me. Tears do the river dance on my cheekbones. I drown in my tub as pain lifts my heart. Cold meets snow and I remember the scent. Frozen lips kiss me as flakes fall round your face. Ice reflecting light of peace that I have manifested. Wonder of wonders.

Magpie Autumn

Magpie Autumn. I'm embracing every day. It feels awkward and uncomfortable. Facing things squarely is the best way. I'm grateful for all my life. The good, the bad, the wonderful.

In Love With Alaska

I made it back to Alaska. The last few months have been all about the house in New Orleans. I also spent a bit of time in Birmingham with my son and his family. The moon is nearly full and the air in Anchorage is crisp and clean. There is something I must do here. Yes, there is the art opening at Snow City December 2nd, but it's something else. There is a deep place that this amazing land brings me. I am in love with Alaska. That's all I know. I can't explain it. It's a mystery. Thank you universe for bringing me back home. I will do my best. I'm free to do good work. I'm happy.

Sacred Sunday Special

What hell is this? Heaven in the right light. Coming up with a plan isn't easy. You got to have guts. Today we rock to the radio. Lovingly make lists to prepare for Alaska.

Time and Change

I woke with resolve in my choices of the past year. I didn't know when I started my journey in December, that I would lose my mother and my children's father along the way. Or that I would buy a home in New Orleans. It was part of the sea change. I honor my family and feel the love as I write this. I study Kali, the Goddess of time and death, also known as 'The Destroyer' and 'Black One'. I relate to her and feel strength and endure with compassion and discipline. I heal all wounds of hurt and carelessness that have troubled me. I love unconditionally, trusting it shall play out in magical, mysterious ways I cannot foresee. "Of his bones are coral made:/Those are pearls that were his eyes:/Nothing of him that doth fade,/But doth suffer a sea change" ~Shakespeare

Morning In The Big Easy

The sun rises slowly here. A long hint of yellow and then a gradual brilliant white envelopes the steam rising to greet the sleepy aqua sky. People have manners, but not always as the morning unfolds it's stiff wings. Melting temperature creeps up as waves of ocean scent bring peace before the cars fill the air with motor noise. Creamy thoughts satisfy my heart as I sip my tea on the stoop.

Tax The Rich!

Tax The Rich! "Treaties that have been made are vain attempts to save a little of the fatherland, treaties holy to us by the smoke of the pipe - but nothing is holy to the white man. Little by little, with greed and cruelty unsurpassed by the animal, he has taken all. The loaf is gone and now the white man wants the crumbs." --Luther Standing Bear

Friday Is Fabulous

Friday Is Fabulous!
September 16th, 2011 Motivation. Yesterday I couldn't see straight, but today I'm back to my powerhouse self. That's how it is. You got to listen to your body, heart and soul. If it ain't happening, don't push it. Today I love without expectations and I'm so much happier. I have let go of a heavy burden. Friday is fabulous. Cheers!

Oh What A Life

September 11th, 2011 I write this from the desk that my mother gave me. It sat in the front hall of our house in New Jersey for many years. Cherry wood with cubby holes, drawers and a key to a secret hiding place. It's taken a while to get the front three rooms of the house ready to place furniture. Last night was the first night I had a bedroom. I feel so blessed. The house will always be a Shot Gun Shack, but I begin to understand the history and the great aspects of a tiny, old house in a great city. I'm not sure what I'm doing here, but I know it's going to be good.

On The Road Again



On The Road Again

The road beckons.
Creativity has it's demands.
With a pallette full of color
the strokes are sure.
Points south on the compass
portend a city rising.
Home sounds dear
but the journey isn't over.
Miles and miles click
as the map declares Alaska.
Follow the heart and let it sing.

Options Of The Fall



Options Of The Fall

The country struggles.
Keep working.
Celebrate what matters.
Conflict of interest.
Power corrupts.
People are dangerous.
Don't give up.
Trust.
Sing the song.
Keep on loving.
Don't be a hater.
Many choices is a good thing.

On Going Romance





Love Is In The Air

When I love I'm happy.
My heart can create love.
Not just for myself, but for the whole universe!
Love makes a difference.
With eyes of love I see love wherever I go.
I close my eyes and take a deep breath.
Filling my lungs with the power of love.
That is my practice. I practice loving.

Four Corners in Alaska



Break Away

Go deep.
There is no where else to go.
No matter what we say to others,
it's still personal work.
Recognize goodness.
Go on loving.
That is the key.
Study your heart.
Listen to the beat.

They All Called Her Alaska



Wedding & Funeral

Life is thick today.
The grey skies match my mood.
My Mother has died and I miss her.
With one exhale Mom has changed it up.
She's decorating a new apartment with Sally and Dad.
Dignity and sweetness describe her end.
She was a fighter. She was wise and humbled.

Thank you Shyanne & Aaron for inviting me to your wedding. Weddingstock changed my life just as you predicted.

A Different Alaska By Robin Rosemond



A few thoughts on traveling.

There’s a difference between a polite but firm request and a shrill demand. Where’s the line? Here are six things one should never do when you travel: I found these suggestions on the World Wide Web.


1. Threaten violence
Bad idea, and it usually has the opposite effect than the one you intended.

2. Yell
Raising your voice is almost never an effective way of getting what you want.

3. Have one too many
Alcohol and travel don’t mix. That’s definitely true if you’re driving, and almost always true when you’re flying.

4. Be inconsiderate of others
Selfish behavior gets you nowhere when you travel.

5. Leave your manners at home
Somehow, travelers think the rules don’t apply when they’re away. You see that a lot with elite-level frequent fliers who believe they not only deserve the red carpet, but also have a license to misbehave.

6. Act like a jerk
You’ve met them elsewhere, but being trapped on a plane, train or bus with them can be intolerable, because you can’t just walk away. You’re stuck with a jerk and all the jerky behavior that goes with it.

Happy Trails!

Climactic Clematis

Two days of Sun in Portland.
The town was blissfully clicking it's heels.
Maria and I cooked and melded in Shaman Sisterhood.
The bounty of the Universe resides in Multnomah County.
Gratefully I stay present. Humbly resting here.
Slowly ascending the top of the wheel free in trust.
Exchanging any worry for creativity.
Shedding the skin I no longer need.
Healing my heart as I walk the Willamette Valley trails.
Thank you Lauren, Oregon and Solstice.

Count down to Alaska.
Sweetest children and happy times.
The wheels are turning and the party has started.
Life is rich, full and close to chaos.
I walk tall, unafraid and trust all is well.

Chard & Chicks

Early morning drive to Farmers Market.
The smell of rice, tamales and poached eggs
in Zing Zang Sauce.
The temperature is rising and the steamy
songs of the south pulse with promise.
