April Notes from GG’s Down to Earth Studio

As I sit here wondering what to write about for this newsletter, nothing seems to fit for this first day in April with Mercury going into retrograde on the one hand (regroup, review, reconsider…don’t start anything new!) and my garden bursting with spring growth on the other hand (emerge, burst forth, start again!).

Questing with the Holy Children at GGs Down to Earth Studio

People who have read my book keeping telling me how brave I am, but I don’t consider myself brave. I think of myself as curious and willing. When something captures my attention and feels right, I’m all in. I trust my intuitive knowing…most of the time anyway. Read more

Happy New Year 2024 from GG’s Down to Earth Studio

The artwork on the left (titled “Shamanic Explosion”) is my version of capturing the essence of a shamanic energy healing performed for me this year…just one of the many amazing gifts that I was fortunate enough to receive in 2023. Wow, what a year! Talk about counting your blessings! I know it wasn’t a good […]

The Reciprocity of Giving and Receiving at GG’s Down to Earth Studio

In my book Solo Passage: 13 Quests, 13 Questions, which is a collection of essays about my vision quest adventures, I wrote about how I would often go out on walk-abouts to search for herbs, bones, feathers, or interesting rocks. In fact, I even drew a parallel between my behavior and that of the sneaky packrats (who […]

From Red Dot to Green Light at GG’s Down to Earth Studio

Back in 2010 I set an intention on my annual vision quest to come to peace with the feelings of envy I sometimes felt about other artists. I shared with my questing sisters about entering my work into art shows and praying to see a red dot on the wall tag indicating the piece had […]

Visibility, Vulnerability and Voice

Last month I was standing in the light celebrating my full and wonderful life. This month I’m feeling a little less bold. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a good, rich, and very full life; it’s just that it’s hard to quell those negative voices inside that cause me to question what I’m doing […]

Living My Best Life at GG’s Down to Earth Studo

In October of this year I will turn seventy-two. That’s almost three-quarters of a century of living on this planet. And yes, there are days when my body lets me know just how long that is. But then there are other days—most days in fact—where I am amazed at this beautiful life I am living. […]

Owl Wisdom at GG’s Down to Earth Studio

Last month I went out into the Modoc National Forest on my annual questing date with Mother Earth. This year I renamed my time out there “quamping” (part questing, part camping) because aging has limited my ability to fast for extended periods and my body requires more comfort and convenience than traditional questing dictates. But […]
