When I wonder who I am and what I am made of, I simply look to sunset and absorb all that is reflected.
I breathe in Divine Love and Light, and I breathe out Gratitude.
I bow in reverence-–understanding the feel and meaning of namaste.
My entire life becomes a moving prayer of creating and connecting with unconditional love.
Infinite possibility is my reality. I center into practices of presence that allow me to connect and create from vulnerable spaces as miracles are perfectly placed throughout each day.
I understand that this moment is a gift; I savor the feel as each moment unfolds–celebrating the beauty, wonder and majesty available here, now.
I am a conduit of light and love.
The sunset is my talisman.
While mind might say that is not tangible, I hold the Light in my hand, infusing all of my creations and connections.
When an occasion requires me to “dress-up” I gather stardust and moonbeams, mix it with sunset, and am ready to go.
In my work, I take this potent mixture, sprinkle in love and gratitude and I watch as it heals heart wounds, enlivens heart whispers and sends Spirit soaring.
I call it transformational magic.
I captured the feel of this in the photo above. I took the photo this evening, on the beach, with wind whipping through and waves surging; I center into the chaos, tap into the peace, and feel the flow.
(I took the photo for my new ecourse *I Believe in Magic*; please understand I am two weeks into this phase of wonder–teaching practices of presence through photography–cultivating “magic” in mainstream. Living my purpose with passion. If we were to use labels, I am neither a photographer nor a teacher, and I have been disowned by my birth family for my work in energy / magic so *this class* is one tangible manifestation of living a life on purpose and what would continue to happen if I followed Divine guidance fully.)
My return to innocence; what my life looks like and feels like when I choose to live the essence of joy, without judgment or expectation.

Facets of Joy
Facets of Joy is my heart-space on the internet, it is a community and a business.
The way that I create for this space is to live it, then share it.
“I want to say I lived each day until I died.
And, I know that I meant something in somebody’s life.
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave,
That I made a difference, and this world will see….
I was here, I lived, I loved.” – excerpt from Beyonce “I Was Here” (my theme song)
The photos on this site are my originals, most of them taken with a Droid phone camera (which might not have the same depth and clarity as an iPhone or professional camera, but I learn to use what I have).
I weave energetic intention and chakra energy through everything on this site.
This article “Conscious Creation“ will give you a sense of “how” I create in life, and for this site.
This article “Walking at Water’s Edge” will give you a sense of who I am as a woman, creator, practitionor, and child of Universe.
Facets of Joy: Collaborating Within Community
This space within Facets of Joy is a sacred container in which one may explore and experiment with the resources, techniques, and practices presented in each message.
As the hostess of this site, my role is to ensure the comfort and pleasure of my guests (that would be you, my wonderful reader who visits so consistently!). My heart says, treat the site as I would my home…I provide the space, serve enlivening and enriching, and allow the guests (you) to choose what you wish to ingest and invest in.
I am a conduit of love, passion, delight, beauty, grace, joy, gratitude, light, transparency, vulnerability, forgiveness, peace.
I invite you to savor the images; linger in all that resonates; refresh your mind, body, spirit, soul.
Dream walks by the shore
Ocean waves drenching my feet
An eternal joy.
