To offer creative inspiration to a fellow-artist
seems, to me, one of the richest gifts
we might ever give, or receive.
This gorgeous “art gown” entitled, Blue Venus was designed and created by the very talented and brilliant Resa McConaghy of Queen’s end.
Resa is a professional costume designer, and this is her 4th in an exciting series of “art gowns” featured on her blog.
She explained that she was inspired to design this one for me, after enjoying many of my writings and photos here, featuring sea, sky and love. I could not be more touched and honored, and thus wanted to share this magnificent gown, fit for a goddess, with all of you today. My poem, above, flowed from my pen and heart, almost instantly, after seeing Blue Venus for the first time. Clearly Resa must have intuitive powers, only having asked me about my favorite colors – and creating this fantasy gown that I truly adore.
Hope you enjoyed, and be sure to visit Resa at her Blog, Blue Venus « Queen’s end to see more photos of this stunning gown, and to learn additional details about the birth of her masterpiece. Thank you beautiful Resa ~ I will forever cherish this most incredible gift of your art.
Much Love Always
deep in the
I want to let everyone know that I will be leaving town this weekend for an undefined period of time. I will be flying to another state to consult with a medical professional in order to determine whether I might benefit from working with him privately on a very specific functional training program he developed, in efforts to help stabilize my joints, and better hold them in their sockets.
It is past the 2 year mark now, since my bilateral hip surgeries ( arthroscopic repair of labrum tears and bone impingement). I have done all humanly possible to recover from this surgery , and regain some degree of normal function, but my situation continues to worsen, and the pain remains unrelenting.
As an update to My Story which I wrote about a year ago… it was recently determined that I have congenitally shallow anterior hip sockets (hip dysplasia) in addition to very loose ligaments (body-wide). Thus this last surgery in which my bone was carved, and joint capsule violated in order to do the repairs mentioned, did not serve me, and has seemingly rendered my joints more unstable.
I hope that I will be a candidate for this specialized training program with a functional movement expert I have sought out personally, and have great faith in. Through dedication and hard work, I’m hoping to develop even greater body awareness, and gain enhanced neuromuscular control of my ball/socket joints, increasing stability and reducing pain. As you might imagine, I am trying desperately to avoid further surgeries, which the experts warn, offer “no guarantees”.
Although I may be away for several weeks now, I hope to have internet, and my wireless devices handy, and will keep a good eye on everyone here ~ reading posts as much as possible, and hopefully posting some too.
Sending much Love and Light to all of you,
who have been, and continue to be
such an incredible source of strength
and inspiration in my life.
Walk With Me
Let’s take a walk
Come hold my
We’ll stroll along
Warm grains of
Our toes sink in
And melt so
Smooth tumbled stones
We’ll step into
And then you’ll stop
To stroke my
I’ll find your eyes
And hold the
You’ll offer me a
I’ll hear the
Echoed truths it
And when we reach
I’ll beg to kiss
A Feather Falls
Glistening feather lands
Upon moist crystalized sand
Hope is born again

To answer thy pleasure; be’t to fly,
To swim, to dive into the fire, to ride
On the curl’d clouds, to thy strong bidding task…”
“The finest and most intricate details are often
imperceptible from a distance.”
“Yet it is in our idleness,
in our dreams, that the submerged
truth sometimes comes to the top.”

Cast me your spell
Distill perfect polarity
Inspire ion-charged clarity

refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how
many times it’s sent away.”

“Sometimes I need to get lost in a field of illusion
in order to finally find my most
“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you;
Don’t go back to sleep.”
Together they fly
caressing the sky
Embraced in a dance
enthralled with romance
When the wind says: DESCEND
the flirtation must end
They tumble and fall
but remember it all
~ Robyn Lee
Dreams and prayers of an entire universe, all woven
into an ethereal blanket of gold.
