It is said every year, "This is the time. I am going to begin ________ now."
for some it sticks and becomes habit, for others it remains a dangling carrot that grinds the teeth down and unsettles the sleep.
If only we could get just ahead of it, there'd be time
there'd be the possibility of anchoring firmly into that juicy thing
we so want.
This belt is a magic charm
with two feathers
and a rich piece of Nevada turquoise
intended to propel you far enough ahead of that dream
to head it off at the pass
and wrap your arms around its width
at the top of your beautiful lungs.
27 inches long from ring tip to ring tip,
the half-belt is meant to be threaded with a vintage scarf or sturdy ribbon.
the punching and stitching and tooling and painting and lining and edge work is all done by hand and with a tremendous amount of love.
Turquoise for grounding
feathers for flight
mandalas for prayerful living
and scalloped edges for femininity.
May it be yours
may you be bold in this new year
and righteous in your ways
more and more with each passing moment
a part of the order of things
created by love
united by openness
by the burning passion
May it be so.
