There’s something in the legend of The Phoenix that keeps us human beings coming back to it time and time again.
Creative folks often use it, and the associated symbology, to communicate transition, regeneration, and the resilience of life. I think deep within the human soul we believe that we can change, that we can re-invent and rejuvenate ourselves and we keep expressing it in our art forms, and lives. Many believe it represents re-incarnation but at the very least I think it represents our ability to create over and over and over.
I painted this image when the things I wanted out of life seemed really hard to achieve, when I felt that they would never happen. I painted it because I wanted to remind myself that I have the power to create change in my life. I stuck it on the wall and every time I saw it I felt empowered to do something to make change – And since I painted it, a lot has changed! 🙂
I feel I am on the edge of a new beginning. After 10 years together Chris and I are finally moving house and getting our own space! I also get a new H.Q. for my business. I can’t tell you how excited I am about all this, what an achievement it is for us and how it feels like we’re entering a new phase of life.
I have so much planned, and I am itching to get started but for now it’s a time of closing down parts of our old lifestyle and setting up the new one. So this is just a little blog today as I am spending the next day or so sorting and packing, gigging all weekend and then moving on Monday!
Have a great weekend all, and be inspired, even when the change you are looking for seems impossible, nothing is impossible! 🙂

Can you create your own totem or image that reminds you of your power to create change?
