Tonight I celebrate my love for you

Happy New years! Occassionally someone expresses what we cannot. Melody and just the right words to tell you how much I love you.
I said I would accept all of who I am, in doing that I must except all of who you are... partner if life, friends, soul connection, my love!

When the silence settles in , a haunting soon begins and in the darkness of the night my mind travels to a place where only warmth and kindess enters in.Come close and let me feel you , come on and jump on in my heart and lay here next to me to share this pillow till we are awakened by the morning light.
~
If you listen to all the tales that everyone has to tell you'd fall into pool of sadness where only hopelessness dwells. Don't fret about the gray skies, the journey long and mountains high, but I am most fortunate I have you by myside. I'd walk a flaming river, I'd calm a raging storm, I'd sing you gently to sleep, I'd make every moment more special then before. All I ask is that each
night before you close your eyes, you gaze into the starry midnight sky. When the twinkle is all that you can see,pick the largest of them all just for you and me. Here is where the sun shines twenty four hours a day, bright and wonderful to warm us from the coldest months of winter to a summer like day in May. Sending stardust to blanket you tonight with magical kisses to to say to you good night.
~
I am ok... if your ok.

Caught up in the moment...

The hollows trees now dormant and a darkened grey,
hide behind the mask of a winter day.
~
Silence stands the fool as I can still hear the words
of love for you unfold.
~
This dance reserved for you and I and nothing
makes a person feel so spry.
~
All your energy infused and there is nothing
that we can lose.
~
Soaring up above the clouds only you and I
allowed.
~
Life is wonderful when your around, it
puts a pink hue to our perfect cloud.

I want.......

I have a list of not necessarily needs but those moments that I most dream of. I want to walk in the park and feed the birds and sit on the bench and share a hot dog with you. I want to drive down the back roads till we find a perfect field and lay side by side and watch the clouds go by. I want to see your eyes when the first snow falls and your heart in the rise of the morning sun. I want to run as fast I can and trip so that you catch me. I want to stay in yours arms till the moment is branded in my mind.
~

Magic is to hear the laughter meld together and feel the love overflow from the heart.
~

To live is to open the gate to the nearest dream and step through.

Paradise

I am fascinated by my own emotions and that which triggers a calm and a excitement on the same platform. This unique mixture of desire and dreams with a hint of magic and a large douse of love creates an unsual display that steps through the heart taking hold of the soul and pleasuring in a togetherness beyond the mountains. Settling on a cloud of romance the energy creates a blend of the heavens and the earth and forms a mystery in the making , a view of our own paradise.

Just another day

Like a chameleon changing colors to camouflage in with its surroundings, I could feel the negative energy alter the peace of my inner space. I knew as I walked into the shopping mall with its many stores closed that the event would be less then prosperous. The anchor store for the shopping mall was a Walmart. The Walmart built a new shopping plaza and with it went many of the chain stores, leaving behind those that were teetering to survive and others who found themselves still caught up in a long term lease.
A view of capitalism at its best, as we stopped in at the new shopping plaza, there was a buzz from the long lines and the acceptance from the college scene. No matter how one looks at it, the success of a super store lay in the hands of American middle class. No adventure is successful without the willing buyers, for they can build up or take down a business.
There are many behind the scene reasons a new location is built over remodeling an existing location. It is at times less expensive to build new then to remodel, and with the creating of new highways, another location might now become more attractive.
The news over the week was filled with destruction many that were at the hands of nature. Volcano's, floods, mine explosions and to many to mention. Desperation called for the prayers of the loss souls. Yet daily the number of unimaginable deaths to do man on man incidences go with out notice. Heavy are the woes of the world, for on the grand stage of life they go with out much fanfare or recognition.
I realized how negative energy can be so controlling, as each vendor packed early to cut their financial loss, they carried out with them luggage filled with stress, negativity and anger. One gentlemen asked for me to hold on and stay awhile.Smiling I agreed, it became time where a few of us shared in past experiences, made friends and expressed personal opinions on everything from politics to personal issues.
I remember my very first event, first question that everyone asked what if you don't make enough money? I said then as I said today it's not about the money made today, but a broader knowledge that comes with the experiences of life. I absorbed much of my surroundings today. The veteran professionals who have tweaked their business, to the first time vendors who were hoping for a successful event. There is always another lesson in life if your heart and mind remain open. As the events before this day, faces will meld together to form a collage that will mark the event in my mind. Unfortunately this event was a mix of the optimist and the pessimist view of life. I felt the on stage emotions that fought for center attention.
Releasing the weeks negativity, I am blowing in the wind. I found myself
fighting my own invisible battles, over walls built of the unknown. Tightening the guide ropes of the ship, I hope to lead myself in
a positive direction. The beauty is in waking up each morning, feeling the wind against my face, remembering the joy of laughter and the magic of smiles created from a distance.
~~~

I shall not walk in your shadow of dismay, in fear that you shall not follow in my steps of courage. Obstacles only remain when the doors to the mind are locked.

~~
To believe is not a path for fools ,as it leads to a bridge that is anchored by faith.

The river.....


Life in Donora

Settling down, in my mind I reviewed the last few festival days. Friday and Saturday were so hot that you begged for shade and Sunday ended the festival with a non stop rain.
My thoughts on the community was one that was stagnant, it was like a stroll through the past. No mass employment in the area, the community faces what so many before them have faced. Poverty,drugs and those struggling to get out and still more satisfied in the only world they know.
I saw people on a level that I had not witnessed in a long time, it reminded of the plight that low income neighborhoods fight on a daily basis.
Many of the people eager for conversation shared their thoughts and celebrated in the joining of neighbors. There were a few who hungered for the arts and appreciated the display of poetry and pictures. I had done what I promised the Lord I would reach out to people in all walks of life.
I saw many of the same problems I myself faced, many young mothers without drivers licenses and education struggling to raise their children.
It isn't possible to survive on a minimum wage job and even worse to raise a family on it. I see so many caught up in the system, with very few doors for them to open.
It was not a weekend of all gloom, I sensed in them a happy people who
warmly welcomed me into their community. Just as any festival there are a few people that sear a permanent picture in your mind. The few that stuck with me were for completely different reasons. The one couple was so happy and warm together that it was refreshing to converse with them, to the complete opposite, a couple where I felt an extreme control of one partner over the other. Then one young women, she was twenty one years old and over coming her disability or at least living despite it.
She read outloud the words in my book, I like that she said, I like it allot, for her she saw the words of inspiration. As she read the notation I made in the book for her she smiled, talked of her boyfriend and her own personal struggles.
I knew that I had been in hiding for many a years, some of it do to circumstances and others maybe to my own time of healing. The place wI chose to call home for twelve years was and isolation from the community at large. The rural area can do that to you, the trees dance in the wind as you wake to the symphony of birds and animals that greet you with the joy of life. It was as if the world and the people in it were locked away beyond the trees of the mountains.
The weekend gave me a greater appreciation for life.

Festival

My mind is scattered, mixed thoughts, I have the feeling of standing at the bottom of the mountain and just again starting the climb. On the way I see many accomplishments and the struggles that weigh a person down.... I am not normally as excited before an event as I am today.
I am not sure why I am as restless. I have been trying to separate personal issues from the day at hand, to not be overwhelmed .
Looking at the last few weeks of accomplishments I see the bringing together of new products and the reintroduction of my skincare line in a new label, the attempt at updating the web store, and also the introduction of poetry in various mediums. What started as fragments of my being and my desire for many things such as love and financial independence , have been muddied by the darkness of another's thoughts and actions.
It is so hot this morning and yet I feel a chill. Many things cross my mind, previous conversations and some how a reanalysis of what is. Trying to battle down my own inner fears and rise above.

The smallest light shines brightest

My Heroes

You have to grab a good time wherever you can, an unknown little fact, I use to read comic books when I was a kid, I could devour them. Well the benefits of being a younger sister was, there was plenty to read. Okay, so it wasn't cultural or educational, but it sure was fun on those lazy hot days of summer when your not daydreaming watching clouds go by.....My favorite was the metaphoris man.. .. simply because I thought he was a gentlemen hero, not to mention cute.... sorry Batman you did come in second with a great ZIP , POW , WHAM, CRASH and well who could not love wonder woman... and the ideal amazon world of women, yeah we know, we rule. lol Just to think in my day comic books were the ultimate enemy to a parent, and now they have taken second place to video games... nothing like fantasy to make your mind work..

Ribfest


The ribfest had great weather and I met up with some old friends as well as making new. We had a huge turn out from the local resturants and Damions took first place this year, but all the ribs were great including those from TGIF, Apple Bees, Texas road house.. etc I appreciate those who continue to purchase poetry and skincare products,but above it was a good time, wonderful music and good spirits.
We are preparing for the next event and hope to see a good turn out.....
if not don't forget to look online for the new line of poetry products that are ready for the quickly approaching holidays at http://www.2onacloud.com/ and http://www.autumnsboutique.com/. We are pleased to be able to bring you poetry from the heart in the Rachel Charlotte Miller Collection, where something new is always happening.... and a special thank you to the Scotts Settlement house for their wonderful hospitality and good luck to the new administrator.

Watching Clouds go by..


Lay your blanket upon the grass of shades of many colors green and gaze into the clouds and tell me what you see.. I saw the hell that lingers
in the clouds and then the puffy white one that lowered itself to the ground. I chose the hand that reached out with care to journey through the darkness and bring your love so near.
Each arts festival brings with it a new faces, new challenges and a bit of excitement. I woke up at 4:30 and for the first time I sit here prepared and extra early. I hadn't done many last minute things and I have already gone through the different phases of preparation... I never realized how important it is to like what you see in the mirror. It's not about the physical as much as it is about liking your inner self. You hear allot of jokes about inner beauty,but there is allot more to it then people realize.
Each event brings with it new stories, some I see the intermingling of issues that we all meet up with at one time or another in our lives. So common are the stories, that only the cast changes.
I found the pedestal of brass horses unattached and laying on my desk. Disappointed it wasn't something I wanted to rid my desk of , so I had them repaired. The soldering that holds them together makes then stand strong , more so then the were originally. I looked at them and it made me think of personalities and how respect and trust builds a stronger bond to hold us up through times of difficulty.
The picture I posted of clouds is interpreted in many ways.The person who sent it to me saw a " heart " and I saw in it a "demon" My response was that the interpretation was extremely different because they "lived with love and I lived with fear. "
Fear to me is nothing more then the pre-examination of a set of consequences. Sometimes the predetermination prevents us or slows the process of growth. When your a small child your taught not to go near a city street as a car might not see you and be able to stop in time. From toddler years on we are taught what we shouldn't do to provide a safer
environment. A certain measure of fear gives us food for thought a period of time to reason. Though if we stand still to long we miss opportunity. There is a very small window of time for which we are responsible to make a choice. If fear be the guide, would we ever get to the other side of the street or would our overly cautious attitude keep us at the edge always guessing when would be the right opportunity? Little lessons from childhood that show up later in life.Here we stand in the middle of our life with choices , how we react, the timing all are crucial
in our development.

I saw her in my dreams and then she disappeared,
locked behind the walls with her long golden hair.

The room she stood was still and lace and ribbon
lay, in a room of perfection where she couldn't
even play.

I saw the vision many times and heard the sounds
of silent cries and everyday she repeated each
step just the same.

Standing at the window, barely does she move
until I get closer and then she fades away to
soon.

Why does she come to me? What message does
she bring?Help me to unlock the mystery,
and set her soul free.

Emotions....

Out of the mouth of babes...I had a few years back encouraged my daughter to read various writers work including poets. As we informally discussed what she was reading and her interpretation, she said " their work is just words on paper and yours flows with emotion" She was nine years old at the time. I said do not ever say you like something because I wrote it. "She said I am only saying what is the truth."
Interpretation, I realized how widely interpreted the words could be, depending on a persons culture, societal positioning and of course experience or lack of it. Traveling through out the North East, I found that really very little divided us as emotional beings, other then our own personal response to the trials of life.
The experiences that feed on emotion are not about the consumption of life, but more like the processing of it. Each day we wake with the ability to reinvent the moment.We in turn become proactive in our positioning in life rather then a parasite that just leeches on, always taking without giving in return.
Denial an unconscious survival mechanism? It is possible that we deny our emotions, because we are taught that it weakens us. I was told by a friend years back, " it is perfectly alright to accept our inner emotions, but not to allow them control over us."
A sensitivity to joy and sadness, love and hate, gives a certain view of life that is overlooked by many. Life is simplicity and only complicated by man.

It's a Beautiful Feeling

It's a beautiful feeling, to have you beside me,
to never feel loneliness and to explore within
a dream.

The water raging moves downstream, mountain
cold and warm with memories. The ones that you
and I have made come true,the ones from my
heart to you.

Beautiful the rock lay, each very different in their
own way. Your holding me up and I you, no slipping
on natures bed, because we the bonded strength
of two.

Your love touched my soul

Felt it in the warm breeze that you blew my way,
felt it in the kiss that made it in my heart to stay.
~
Love exist for some in a form of dreams,but your
love touched my soul and there came reality.
~
Felt it in the sunshine warm upon my face, felt it
in the darkness when fear was chased.
~
Love exist for some in a form of dreams, but your
love touched my soul an there came reality.
~
Heard it in the song that woke me in the morn, heard
it the very moment that love was born.
~
Love exist for some in a form of dreams, but your
love touched my soul and there came reality.
~
I saw it in the heavens and the again in your heart,
the reflection of love creating a spark.

Where dreams begin....


Dear Kimblake,

A big thank you to those who bought books......enjoy!

It's festival time!

I can do what to an eskimo?

Red Earth Festival 2007

Native Americans

Woodland Pow Wow

The first steps to a successful weekend is having beautiful weather, and that we did. Watching the Native Americans celebrate in life, was a warm and earthy experience. Their respect for that which is widely neglected by people in the world at large. I would not call it simplicity, yet a common ground for what is right and wrong and a bases of gratitude for nature, not much different then many of us who love to garden, respect that the sun has risen and that a new day has begun.

Holding on to their heritage and educating the next generation to the beauty of their dance and music with their obvious love for that all exist. As I spoke with them,I saw the similarities in our plight, they are a large part of the American Culture, one that is many times over looked. I also viewed that as people our needs are very much the same and the issues with which we have to deal with on a daily basis are there. We get up in the morning , we have to provide for our families, discipline our children and deal with the many issues that arise in living life.


Though my highlight of the weekend was watching the children play, my daughter said I made the best of friends, better then people I have known my whole life. I believe the similarity in our beliefs, the down to earth and basic morality or a common bond, allowed the children to be just that children and run and play and grow. Though as I watched the children enjoying and forming a bond of friendship, I realized that there was so much we could learn from children. They come into the world pure and innocent without the grave prejudice that separates cultures, hearts and people. The beauty and the future rest with the children of the world. It is adults whose ignorance and fear that lead us as people down the path of grudges and negativity. Marten Luther King, whose is well known for his speech " I have a dream" . Knew the future rest in educating the next generation. I do believe the world can someday sit on the same podium of respect and love and care for one another with the beauty of diversity. Look unto the children for their eyes see no color, look unto the children for their hearts are pure, look unto to children for they are our future leaders.

When the media stops separating and dividing people and realizes the strong tool of hatred they have become, the weapon of the words that carries grudges and evils of the past and makes them current issues that remain alive, then and only then will people as a whole break down the barriers that have remained for so many years.The news, radio, tv, internet, movies , plays etc., should be held to a responsiblity to all people. When a man is as seen as a man,both good and bad, and not as rich or poor, black or white, Irish or Japanese, but as a man, then we will have broken down one brick in the wall of ignorance. For even a child knows we all take one step at a time, when learning to walk.

Enough of this rambling.... Saturday was fun, I signed books and met some wonderful people. I heard stories of the loss of lives, to heartbreak and many who have overcome their own personal hells. Each individual sucess stories were a inner view of the struggle and the varied emotions we express.
One woman asked where I was from, she said I would have thought you were from somewhere special. You look like someone special... special hun!, aren't we all, as we are Pieces of the grandest puzzle..... Mother Earth.

My gratitude goes out to those at the pow wow who made us feel welcomed and for allowing us to share in their moment in the sun

Untraveled Paths....

The Irwin Community Arts and Crafts couldn't have asked for better weather. I would say it was near perfect, hot summer without the humidity and a warm breeze that is both inviting and comforting. There was a steady crowd of people all who seem to be in good spirits.

Where there is light, there is hope.
I think I held my own today with people pleased with the poetry and skincare.But the key was the event opened the door to more invitations, events that sounded extremely exciting and gearing me in directions that I had no idea were there. Success is not measured by how much one owns, but how much one can give back to society. In this perspective I am wealthy beyond the barriers of earth. For I have crossed walls of brick to reach the clouds. With Love there is imagination, with imagination dreams, with dreams hope, with hope tomorrow, with tomorrow a path untraveled.

WoW! I Made it through the Saturday event. It was a plant your feet on the ground kind of community affair. A touch with the world of reality around us. The stories that people shared a view into their personal demons.
I was amused by this one teenager with his mother, he said to her" Do you know her? his mother replied no! He said, " then why are you telling her all that?" As they walked away he looked back at me and smiled and said" bye Rachel. "
Ah! the people you meet. I have to say in the various cultural settings there is a big difference between country poor and city poor. As one of the vendors joked with me and said "ask a man in the rural area, your woman or your gun? and the response take my old lady but leave my guns alone. "
Many differences in the people, the stories they tell, heartache, survival and ongoing saga's. But one similarity is that all the emotions that people feel no matter what class of people are the same... love, hate, happiness,sadness all exist at different levels at different times of ones life.
A woman beside me spoke of her many plastic surgeries and said she was going for one more a face lift. I said I don't think you need it beauty comes from with in, you have to look deep inside yourself to see it.
Then I smiled as a 80 yr old woman bought love lotion and rose petals for her bed and was anxiously waiting to share it with her male friend.
The difference in the two women was that the elder woman was living and loving life.... her beauty flowed outward from the deepest part of her soul, her spirit filled with love and joy! Other women shuttered at the thought and she smiled and the glow from within was released.Aging beautifully she was every last wrinkle was blessed wth the magic of life.

June 9 th 2007 Dravosburg

Update- The Monghalea event was wonderful, great vendors, new friends and blessed with beautiful weather, the rain held off and it was hot and sunny. People came from as far as Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina and a woman from Florida, it was great to see everyone out.
The" cup between 2 friends" a soon to be classic, is one of the most popular items I sell to date. Everyone can relate to a good friend who has been there to listen. The times have change and good conversation may not be over a cup of coffee or tea, but the connection whether a phone call or ten minutes in between work or a sit in the park is all important to the person who needs to be heard.
Our Next Event will be on June 9th 2007 at Dravosburg Community days... It looks to be a great family day out and we are looking forward to bring you quality products created and distributed by Author Rachel Charlotte Miller and 2 on a Cloud.
