Artist Statement:

Standing in the dark, Looking towards sky
Given solace…. And peace of mind
From a gaze at the Moon my ancestors gazed at too.

Standing in the light of the sun
Feeling the warmth against my skin
I can feel it in my veins my ancestors felt the same.

See the Moon embrace the Sun
The directions of the rays represent a new phase
New beginnings, Balance and Awareness
Its time we look all around us
With new eyes, and United… not alone and not divided.

The message is clear, my heart is finally here
I am where I belong on the ground I walk on
My eyes are open with a new lens
I hope you see it too because I am sharing it with you

The value is not money, not power not industry
The value is within and the space we share where life begins
In the earth, in the trees
in the air and rivers and sea

not every spirit has a voice, but I hope you can hear mine
because am speaking from my heart
I feel that its time

For new beginnings for healed trauma
To feel balance from within and one another
And bring awareness to Defend the sacred
The earth has spoken, all my relations.
