About Me

My Photo
Born and raised in Metro Detroit. I have a deep love for the city and all that it has to offer. Always seeking growth, absorbing all that I can and cherishing the treasures that I collect along the way. I am fortunate in my life to experience many true connections with others where I am gifted with energy, light, passion and grace.

Invisibility

Oh, invisible me
Could I slip through the cracks
Even disappear into the atmosphere

Or could I slip inside
Your beautiful mind
And reside there

But, for the fear of not being accepted
Or the scalding truth of being rejected

No map to lead the way
For your voice reverberates
The music my heart wants to play
If only I could scale these prison gates

If only I could tear down the walls
And escape from inside
These sterile, vacant halls
I could be visible and alive

Uninhibited Beauty

There sits a pine tree
Off in the distance
It doesn't experience
Loneliness,  heartache or hopelessness.

It grows and breaks
In the wind, it shakes
It lies dormant for a time, cheating death
Storing nutrients,  in preparation for a strong comeback.

It does not strive for perfection
No boundaries, limitations or expectations
It simply reaches for the sky without abandon
Water, Earth and Sun,  a recipe to dazzle the imagination.

The Raft: the view and the memories

Sharing a few photos of one of my favorite spots, "The Raft". This is a little place on Lake St. Clair in Fair Haven, Michigan. This quaint little spot specializes in burgers and chili, but for me, it covets some very dear memories with my Daddy. We used to make the drive North along Jefferson Ave, ending up at "The Raft". As we traversed this scenic road, my Dad would share stories with me. We would order our food at the walk-up window out back and with no real care for time on those days, we would sit out at the picnic tables behind this little restaurant and share a meal while taking in the remarkable view. On most occasions, while visiting this old familiar spot, there would be a swan or two wandering around just off shore. If you ever make it out to that neck of the woods, stop in for a burger and an amazing view.

"Harmony" project completed May 29, 2011

Earlier this year, I started a project which I posted here and I want to share the completed piece with you now. The project was definitely a leap of faith, something I had never attempted before and yet, it makes perfect sense, as it combines my love of music and my passion for art. The project is entitled, HARMONY and is a living, breathing, work of instrumental art. Yes, I said living and breathing because when it is played, I feel it is life in motion and this piece of art can be played. I would appreciate your feedback on this piece.




Riding the Wings of Love . . . to the Sea of Dreams and Beyond

Today's post is a painting that I created for my best friend and her family as they prepare to move over 2,000 miles away to pursue a dream job. The happiness I feel for them runs deep as this is an amazing opportunity and the beginning of a new journey in their lives. There is sadness in the absence that I will feel in my life with them so far away but I am certain that we will melt the miles away with love, connection and the strength of our 30+ year friendship.
I created this painting for them to express the joy that I see in their future that is built from the strength of their love and the strong and beautiful family unit that they have created which has put them on the path toward reaching their goals and dreams with passion. I believe the foundation they have built will take them on an amazing journey through the sea of dreams and beyond.
I hope you will enjoy this piece, I call it, Riding the Wings Of Love . . . to the Sea of Dreams and Beyond. Completed by Kyra Faith on May 28, 2011.

As Winter Comes to a Close . . .
