    I feel so privileged to be able to come here and partake of this, this wondrous creative collaboration between two artists who truly feed the spirit. I have shivers in the best, most wonderful way. Thank you!

      Thank you so much, Angella. I just saw the final video last night and it blew me away. I, too, feel privileged to be a part of it. It’s more than I could have asked for. Claire did a wonderful job with the whole thing. And thank you for continuing to be a part of this space for me. xoxo

    Wow Rachel. So amazingly powerful. The ocean video and music couldn’t be more perfect. Thank you for being who you are.

    Much love as always, Julie

      Thanks, Julie. For always supporting me. Claire did a wonderful job shooting the photography and finding the music. A great collaboration.

    Oh, so powerful. The words and the film of the moving, undulating sea with the eternally changing plants so moving.
    You should do more of this.

      Thank you so much, Ms. Moon! Claire has inspired me to do more videos. I’m working on some new poems now, so hopefully I can figure out a way to present them visually. It’s an exciting idea though! I’m looking forward to the challenge. I think there’s plenty of places in the desert I can get lost with this. =) xoxo

      I just realized that this looks like the lunar cycle. =)

      • Yes, and so it does! Right now we’re approaching the Gemini Full Moon indicating that there’s a lot of frenetic energy to integrate, harmonize, find stillness with. . . very true, given the enormity of events these past days. xoxo

          Is that what this feeling is? frenetic energy? God. I’m all out of sorts this week. My calibration is so off. It’s unsettling.
