Warm greetings friend. The arrival of covid19 has changed everything as we know it.
Individually and collectively, we hold uncertainty as to how this transition into birthing new patterns will unfold. 
This instability is filled with many emotions... curiosity, despair, wonder, anger, hope, grief, fear, Love. 
May we honor ALL our feelings as they arise with tender acceptance and compassion.

NEW Drawings & Writings

Dear friend,
The polarization around us intensifies and it's a daily challenge to not lose balance and fall into despair. In the midst of chaos, how to remain centered?
One way is to keep on doing what we love. By nourishing ourself, we are strengthened. What feeds my soul most these uncertain days is drawing and writing. Sharing the first offering of an evolving collection of work… my inner response to these epic times of transformation. A long-held vision is to create a series
of coloring books for earthstar children (us) and here's the start! Until that happens, if you'd like... please print, color and nourish your sweet self.    
in Grace, mara 

Remember & Rise 1    8/29/20
earthstar daughter stands tall upon our ravaged earth
she sends rainbow roots deep into the Mother
roots to help her withstand the relentless storms

tenderly carrying the dream of healing in her heartmind
she soars high above the chaos
her spirit inspires others to rise and remember

when we hold strong our vision of an evolved earth
the power of our collective heart will carry us thru the darkness
to the serene shore of awakening

Remember & Rise 2 - 9/2/20
earthstar daughter remember and rise
each time fear clouds your eyes
whenever fear knocks you down
rise up,reach out, look around
do you remember what you came here for?
why your soul stepped thru the human door?
we are here to awaken, learn and grow
we rise higher with each truth we know
trust the truth that embracing fear makes us strong
trust the truth that our mistakes are never wrong
we are growing in the knowing that we are One With All
full trust in this Truth and we will never fall

On this Labor Day weekend, reflecting on these trying times we are living through has inspired a drawing to share with you.
Symbols that mean much to me showed up in this musing: sacred arrow of the Awakened Feminine, whalesoul of compassion,
fire of transformation, sacred earth of the four directions. 

Remember & Rise 3 - 9/6/20 (covidtimes labor day haiku)
our sacred labor
united we protect Her
earth heart is our heart

Our skies are filled with smoke. Our hearts are clouded with grief.
How do we proceed in times of great need?

Remember & Rise 4 - 9/10/20

fire all around!
how do we find our center?
HER heart beats in us.

overwhelm engulfs!
how do we not get knocked down?
HER body holds us.

darkness overcomes!
how do we find our way home?
HER spirit guides us.

Remember & Rise 5 - 9/25/20 
Tuesday was fall equinox. A holy moment of equilibrium. A moment where day and night are of equal length A moment of balance between light and dark. Though the earth faithfully follows Her harmonious, cosmic cycles, civilization at this moment in time is anything but balanced. It can feel as if we are spinning out of control. When the chaos becomes overwhelming and too much to bear, be still. Take a moment to breathe, to pray... be nourished by the protection and love of our ancestors and angels.

when chaos surrounds
climb to higher ground and meet
kin who support you

reach high in your mind
and find within your heart YOU
guiding you to truth
