The Sacred Geometry River

The Sacred Geometry River

If I were to ask you what is sacred, what would you say?

I can finally stand and say one thing that I know for certain, without a doubt. 

When you teach a child, you are forever changing the world. 

I had to go back into teaching swimming at the YMCA to realize just how incredible the role of teaching is. The family is connected to you, woven into you through their desire for their child to be happy. You and the parents want the same, you desire for the child to thrive and flourish!

We are complicated, a kaleidoscope of emotions, ideas and desires. We are all connected here, by magical words that flow and float. The river washes away the old, the joy of learning and growing is what the seed of life is about. 

That organic leaf shape, is the vesicle piscis, it is also called the fish bladder. I can’t help but grin at how the lesson over lay and swirl and whirl around me.

I am creating art work that I will offer as a reward for supporting my future kick- starter project. The first project will be a book.  I hope you all keep me in mind for the future.

My life project will be creating an ART school and healing center in Ireland. YES!! I have said it. I have planted the seed of the future here, with you. There will be a place for you to make art-- and stay. A place you can learn Reiki and learn to heal yourself. Ireland is a magical place, perfect for a healing arts center!

I look forward to 2016!!! May we all soar and shine!! Let us leave the negative behind. Let us find the connections that fling us into the sun!!

San Francisco Gathering

Having my daughter and son visit for Christmas was astounding. I had forgotten how they bounce off of one another, the positive energies ricocheting like old fashioned rubber balls. I was young with them here, laughing and singing and letting their love and light carry me along their bouncing bubbles of euphoric electricity.

The image of my son laughing, is when he decided to grab me and tell me to get closer. It was a spontaneous magical moment, it practically brings tears to my eyes…and I am so glad Margaret captured that special “Kodak” moment. We should all have Luvs, who grab us and pull us into them! Thank you David for that incredible unforgettable moment!

Star Wars was day one. I am vocal at the theater. If you hate going to a movie with someone who claps at great scenes, then please do not come with me. I clapped and yelled and wooooohooooo-ed at the great scenes. I loved every minute! The walk through the Stockton tunnel, was fabulous too! My daughter loves singing with me in that tunnel. If you hear crazy singing, it might just be me.

Christmas was fabulous! The books, the presents, ooooooooh the bracelet is stunning! (waving at Anita) and the shawl is perfect!!! (waving at Paddy)! Thank you Loves! 

THEN ICE SKATING!!! Wooohoooooo! I am young at heart! I am 30 years old in my body, I demand much from myself. However, it has been 30 years since I have ice skated. Truthfully, I had forgotten how hard the ice is…It hurts to fall. However, no bones broken. Just a few bruises. David was my hero!! THANK you Dave for letting me hold on to you! (grinning) Sorry for making you fall. I am still laughing at the event!! Great fun! It was lovely seeing you and Margaret glide around the ice rink! LOVED it!!

Next day the ballet, the Nutcracker! If you have never ever seen a ballet, go to that one. The set designs were cleverly done! I was in awe! I want to design and build and create art for the theater! Just wow!  There is something magical about dancers, the way they lift and leap and make me feel as if I too can leap and soar. Dance is an incredible art, it requires MUCH from the artist…makes me feel like I too can become more.

After the play we went out for drinks. Margaret is of drinking age now. It was our first family visit to a bar. David, Margaret and I went to a place that a friend recommended…the drinks were yum-m-m-m-m-y! The special “Chinese whiskey” was fabulous!

The next day, we went to breakfast at my favorite bakery in San Francisco! The Victorian Pastry Bakery, oh my Lord! We all got something different, cannoli, strawberry short cake and chocolate eclair. We all took bites and our eyes rolled up into our head in deeeeeeelight! 

We skipped over to the “City Lights” book store and spent hours perusing the lovely books. What a glorious bookstore! IF you love the old fashioned page turning book…then do yourself a favor and visit!

Then the pinnacle event, was eating at Mongolian Hot Pot. What fun!! They set a big pot of boiling broth right at the table and enjoy the experience of putting together the soup. You can decide on the type of broth you want to cook your food in, and then decide upon the ingredients that go into your lunch! We ate way too much and drank saki laughed and laughed! The scrumptious bubbly broth was amazing.

We drank lots of champagne — we became those euphoric  bubbles…soaring upward and making one another laugh with love. A great holiday! One for the record books!

2016 is going to ROCK and ROLL!

Red Cape

Original art by Judith Parsons 2015
I walk into the coliseum of my mind. The thinking men cheer when I walk in! Two men stand holding the red velvet cape and drape it over my shoulders. They take my arms and walk beside me to a table that is 50 feet in length.There are 25 candles lit, with glass hurricane lanterns to protect them from the night wind.

Every one stands up and starts clapping, Everyone of you is draped with your red velvet cape of royalty! We are all Kings and Queens here, in this space and place in my minds eye. we are ALL equal. The thinking men are also draped in their red velvet capes. Everyone is dressed to the nines. Tuxedoes and elegant gowns. Sparkling diamonds and studded cuff links are reflecting the candle light. The silverware and china reflect the gorgeous flickering candles.

You are beautiful, when you smile. I can see you. Yes, you. I wink and grin, and we both nod. Thank you for loving this place Dear. Thank you for asking that I come back here. I have missed the thinking men of the coliseum.

I see all of you! Thank you for being here in my minds coliseum. My beloved sisters and brothers of Love! I see my best tree climbing friend and her family, all my church choir friends, my high school friends, the women who run with the wolves friends, my long time military connected friends, artist friends, the welding and blacksmith friends, the glass artist friends, the mold making friends…and my new Facebook loves!

What a glorious gathering in my minds eye. I raise my champagne flute and salute you all! You have worked hard on becoming your best self. You have persisted and kept working at becoming your highest self. It is a work in progress…it is. There is nothing that comes easy, without much hard and diligent work. I respect you, because you work hard.

SO tonight we play hard! We strike up band…we dance and swirl and we laugh. 

I adore you sweet friends! The thinking men adore you too! (grinning) 2016 is going to rock!! We are all connected in Love and Light!

Wooohoooooooo!!! Soaring…singing…sashaying…smiling and shining beside you all!!

Do not use without permission
What a fun filled day yesterday! I was in the pool with little young beginner swimmers that went from not wanting to put their face in the water—to them wanting to sit upon the bottom of the pool. Then I headed to my favorite artist, tool God and played with metal.


I started with the design you see…It started with a simple “wo-man” concept. The center of the o was the bullseye. The center for rotation. The “W” spins around the “O” creating and joining the two different words. Making them one.

Megan Larman got married yesterday. I have seen photographs and imagine it was a magical memory making day. Two young loves joined. I remember years ago, the young lovers beside the bon fire. It is nice to see them becoming one, together. Man and woman love enough to make the commitment of marriage. Congratulations sweet young Loves! May you talk! Talk! TALK! May you always spew out your pains to one another so the vulnerabilities stay between you both.

The lines between man and woman have blurred over the years.The ideas and roles of who stays home with the children and who leaves the house is an interesting shifting scenario. What we were 10 years ago we are no longer.

The graphic image tries to become steps, but these steps aren’t rigid. They are skewed and warped and weaving and waving and flowing into themselves. The man and woman flowing as we all cross borders wanting the same glorious love.

Enjoy the flow today. Play the music. GO find a friend to play in the garage with, to bend metal and hammer out art with. Or just play music and dance!!! Enjoy!!!

Wooooohooooo!!! Life really is grand!!

Happy Lunar New Year! Merry Christmas! Much Love!

The calling child.

The illustration is one line drawn to create a path of curves to suggest the mother holding a baby. I am a mother, it is a role that brings out the mother lioness in me. It is a sacred energy that drives me beyond my mundane other self.

She, the mother in me.
Holds her self to a higher standard. The regular me is left in the dust where my children, are concerned.

The mother in me, is a giant. “She” is when I become the highest self that I am always searching for. “She/me” are like old friends laughing and hugging because I am home when I am a mom.

It is a reunion with my best self. In 4 days my children will be with me. The room is small, the accommodations not anything they are used to. It will be sort of like camping out, with out the woods. 

I have stood watching my daughter walk to catch her plane. I have screamed through the airport, at the top of my lungs:  “I love you-u-u-u-u-u-!” And she has screamed back:”I love you to-o-o-o-o-o-o!” It is a ache that family shares. The love of our little ones, is what makes life extra special. They do not necessarily have to be born from us. We become their care takers, we become their back up plan, we become love.

I am preparing my wee nest for the visit. I am sure it will be one we never ever forget. Life is about that special connect, with a young one that looks up to you. May your holiday season connect you to a very special wee one.

May their laughter become yours. (hugging you tight)

Not Complicated

Illustration by Judith Parsons 2015
Dance lessons, new software, facing new fears…The energy of new things takes time to settle.

Life is about facing your fears. Letting someone show you how to dance, letting them guide you through a new process of movement. Living full-on means facing your fears. 

I have a new contact I want to make and I am striding in my minds eye back and forth like the caged lion, wondering about it…

Wondering about her. I will let the energy settle and know that when the time is right, when I have the amount of time to give to her…then I will do so.

There is no panic in life. There is plenty of loving light and energy to spread over all of us, to calm us like a warm blanket out of the dryer. I am smiling now, as I see the lion sitting with a blanket draped around his body…his eyes heavy and about to snuggle into his warm blanket of love.


This morning my adobe software codes all needed to be updated. Two years ago I remember being in a panic and ricocheting off the walls because I had to go through a sequence of events to redeem my subscription. Oh Lordy mercy, I was a mess, I was scared that I wouldn’t have my beloved photoshop, illustrator and after effects to create in.

This year, I knew what the issue was. I knew who to call, how to handle and solve the equation that was blocking my use of Adobe products. I called the help desk, went through the sequence and created the art you are seeing now.

I am happy to report that I am more centered and grounded, after have 2 years at graduate school. There is a ebb and flow now, a easy “knowing” that eventually I will solve the problem that arises. I don’t fall off the deep end anymore.

So dance with your fears…Imagine the lion with blanket draped over his shoulders, standing up on his hind legs, his front paws on your shoulder…I am laughing at the image. It is all good, all God. We are all one…loving and living in the purest light.

Calm, grounded and settled.

Wooohoooooooooo!!! Life is amazing!! Love you all!

Hawk messenger

Illustration created by Judith Parsons. 2015. The photo of the hawk rotated to create awesome wreath of feathers.
The messenger. Yesterday as I was walking to school, down Columbus, I looked up at St. Peter and St. Paul's cathedral beside Union park. The bells were ringing, it was 2 o’clock and I could not believe my eyes. A huge hawk was perched upon the steeple. I stopped and stared.
The bells were ringing and I was in awe. 
It is rare to see hawks in the city. The messenger, it was a great sign for me. Things are all coming together…to-get-her. I love that word.

Last night coming home on the bus, a woman was standing waiting for the bus with me. She was an artist in Hawaii, she came back to San Francisco for the culture. We shared briefly our journeys. She asked me why I was here, I told her about my quest to find myself, through acquiring my Masters in Sculpture. We both laughed about that statement. Originally she was waiting on the 8 bus, I told her it was a few blocks down. I usually catch that one when I do a grocery run. So she joined me upon the bus. She pulled out a post card and handed it to me. It was a print of a fish, she made art for 40 years. She asked me to call her, that it was hard to find older artist women in the city. I totally agreed!

I will call her. She is interesting, intriguing. Life is a wonderful mystery.

Take chances with life, listen to your heart, reach out and love a little. It is okay to love lots of people. It is okay to to sing and sashay—shine and s-o-a-r!

The hawk is the messenger of good things to come. There is magic in the air. There is much to be thankful for. When the bells toll...look up...see magic.

Birthday wish

Can you see the birthday candles?
Perhaps it is a bit much.
Original illustration and photograph by
Judith Parsons 2015
If you know me, then you know my birthday wish. It is the same: “May all your birthday candle wishes come true. Happy Birthday.”

My mother was great about making me feel extra special on my ONE day of the year. She would put a bow upon my chair, and I had a special chair all day long. She made what ever we loved for dinner, and we ALWAYS had a birthday cake with candles. I try to make sure the people I love get cake that we can put candles in.

There is something incredible about wishing upon a candle. To have another person sing the birthday song is an extra bonus, however…Even if you are alone, You MUST get yourself a cake or cupcake, and put a candle in it. YOU must!!

You see, the angels have told me, there is a special place for birthday candle wishes in the magical world of wishes and Love. The highest part of you, the part that has kept you going, kept you smiling, and kept you intuitive -- really wants to wish with you. She/He will whisper along with you, insuring that your wishes come true!

My girl-friend in Ireland had a birthday today. All day long I thought about her and wished for her some extra special loving. And I was thrilled to learn that her marvelous family visited her and stopped in to wish her a happy birthday. It makes my heart warm and happy to know they cared. 

(smiling sigh) Thank you!!!! Woooooohooooooo!! I love and adore your family!

The angel with the rose wreath around her head was really happy!! She had found her home!! There is exquisite energy in sharing another’s birthday. To give a gift that reminds us of Love. We are blessed to share in the candle ceremony with another. It strengthens our safety net of love. We are stronger for it. 

I can see her closing her eyes for a brief second, making her wish…and then smiling. I can see her blowing out the candles…Even though I am in San Francisco, and she is half way around the world. I can see the smoke rise, the wishes riding the smoke, the smoke tickling the the feet of God…and God grinning and granting her the wishes she asked for.

We are all connected!! Love is action…Love is doing… Love is amazing.

Rich Highflights

Original art by Judith Parsons 2015
Highflight by John Gillespie Magee

 "Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,

I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air....

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue

I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.

Where never lark, or even eagle flew —

And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.”

You know we are all connected. Whilst drawing the graphic, you see…I was listening to PBR and the political writer referred to this poem. I stopped what I was doing and smiled. Thank you universe for patting me upon the head. 

Little signs along the way. Tell me I am going in the right direction.

I am excited about life! 

Everything really is relative sweet Loves. Go without a car for a while, carry your groceries on a bus. Do without for a day or two. Get a taste of how rich you are. Appreciate the simple things.

You are rich!

I am your wild card!

Illustration by Judith Parsons 2015

In the business world, there is always a person who is the 
“go to”
 person. The person that seems to think upon a realm so “out of the box” that you are confident when you bring your problem to her... She will give you so many potential solutions that your head is swimming with what to do.

I am your thinking outside of the box, 
“heaven on earth” solution.

Come, (patting space beside me) lets discuss what 
I can do

You nod, gulp, and we both smile at one another. 

Let us get down to the heart of the challenge. What exactly would you like to do? Lets define the issue - let us ask the questions so thoroughly that you really know what you desire.

Only when we KNOW all that we want to —can we look for the answers.

It is as simple as looking for the buried treasure. We just look. We know it is out we get the metal detector and search. 

The problem arises when we don’t “Know” what we are searching for. It is quintessential to asses and evaluate what you desire.

Everybody on Facebook is looking for Love in all the wrong places. I am going to hold a mirror up and ask you a personal question. Look at yourself as you are now, would you go out on a date with you?

If you hesitated at all- then you might want to work on you a bit. I am taking the next year to become stronger in every way. I am going to work on my muscles, and yoga and swimming. When I go for the job interview in a year- I want to be the most exquisite “whoa” that walks in the room.

I am creating art to use for my business cards, and my book. I am going to start a kick-started project and ask for your support toward publishing a book. Yep. We are all connected together. We are friends and loves and all of us WANT more. So give me more. 

Enough sitting on the sofa drinking your beer, complaining…Start writing out your list of what your buried treasure looks like. You are stunning. You are strong. Well, you used to be. You have forgotten yourself lately.

Come on, let me assist and help motivate you to be all you can be. This is the time Love, I am gearing up for making art in Italy! I am gearing up for a magnificent job. Right now, I have not a clue who I will work for…I don’t know who I will be working for… However I plan to be with  a million dollar company earning a six-digit income. 

In a year, you will want me.You will.

The Real Secret

Original art by Judith Parsons 2015
There are a group of artist
The doctors couldn't explain it
But we know the secret

In our heart we share the ink of one another
The ink blood and energy and light
The Trinity we share daily as we love
One another
The past, present and future
The religious walls came down
The love flows over the river banks
Flooding the pages with love

Magical spells we swim in
Mystical connections that crossed all realms
Keep us forever young 

The doctor asked me why I was living so long
I smiled and met his eyes 
“We are all planning to meet one day…”

It just hasn’t happened yet.

Connected teaching peace

I found the design of the words on was a
photograph of "teach peace" on a white wooden wall.
I took the idea and recreated it using photoshop.
Art by Judith Parsons 2015.
Goood morning Beautiful and Wise Friends! Picture me pulling you into my arms for a huge swaying hug. Feel my arms wrapped around you and we are standing for a moment in the warm sunlight. The breeze is perfect and we are perfect. Just for a second or two let yourself breathe in a hug…Let your shoulders relax as you know you are loved.
Just relax and sigh…and melt in the sun for a moment…and smile.

Smile at the power of the mind…at the power of imagination…at the power of connected-ness. The energy of Facebook is astounding. We willing are able to slurp coffee on opposite sides of the United States (or the world) and connect. While you are reading this I am on the other side of the computer screen—sipping coffee….okay…”slurping” really is the word needed to describe my half asleep morning routine.

I awakened extra early and went scrolling strolling through Facebook lane…And I saw some incredible post on Margaret Keelan’s (waving) wall…and then I found a friend of hers, who is also an artist…and I went strolling scrolling through her wall. Her name is Stella Strippeypants (waving)…AND I found some incredible posts on her wall…and I have shared them on my wall…and we became friends.

This is Shelley's cool wall: CLICK here

This image: “Teach Peace” came from those connections this morning. I connected the dots, followed my heart…followed the dots…connected them all…I was so inspired that I created this awesome piece of art work. I then took that art work and swirled it…I am on a swirling kick lately…(chuckling at that thought) 

The swirling spinning twirling dervish of graphic design…(smiling at that silly image in my head) I am an artist…I write, I ramble, I connect the dots … and I hug lots of folks…and I believe LOVE is changing as we change…As we connect all over the world—the love we share spills out from out finger tips…our lives are changing because of these incredible connects.

You are wonderful that you are reading these words. I adore the heck out of you for reading my words. In fact, I am going to send you something…I haven’t figured it out yet…However, I will send you a gift…of some sort—just for reading my words today…Just because.

Send me an e-mail:
Please on the subject line put “blog connect” and if you really want something—send me your snail mail address…
It will be something I made…

And it gives me an idea of who reads my blogs—or linked in ramblings….
I adore you guys—-I really do!!

What a fabulous hugger you are!! (grinning) I adore hugs!!

See you later!!!! Wooooooohoooooooooooo!!! Life is amazing!!

Over and over again

Original art by Judith Parsons 2015
Yes, I know it is not is like that sometimes.
Sometimes, we have holes (holy) ...some times life
comes out of left field...It just is...The eyes have it.
Over and over again.
I have been writing a blog for the 2 years I have been attending graduate school. I started writing to first, see if I could. Then second, to improve as a writer. I am blessed to have you all read me. You comment and put a thumbs up. And along the way I have fallen in love over and over again. 

I love people who put themselves out here. The open book sort of folks- you know, you have seen the Facebook posts about how we take photos of our meals, what we have been creating, our pets…and then they complain that this isn’t a normal relationship. They make judgements that say we should not walk up to someone on the street and blurt out all we have done in the last 5 hours.

I say, go right ahead. Tell me all that you have done, all that you want…I will slurp my coffee on this side of my screen while you slurp your coffee. Then there will be days that I complain about a cold and feel like crap-o-la-cola…and you might not hear about that, just because I hate complaining out loud. I suffer in silence mostly. Well—there are one or two folks that hear my poor-pitiful me cries. But, generally speaking I try to keep my post on the up beat side.

It is the way of the world, selfies and instant photos and videos capturing the good, the bad and the ugly. We are crossing borders in every way. The color of ones skin doesn’t matter as much as your negative posts and your over all energy.

In the end, we all bleed the same color blood. It is a simple ideal notion. We are all one. We can be. Yes, there are those that are savage hateful horrible people, maybe there will always be. I can pray that one day, even they will see the light— maybe when they hold their child in their arms, maybe then they will look far ahead down futures path and realize the killing must stop.

Sorry, didn’t mean to preach. 

We are all magnificent light reflecting off our mirrored hearts. We can gather and combine in love and light, and become more. Stronger and better everyday. Looking toward and forward a safe and serene place for our future babies.

May you find a warm sunny spot today to melt in the light.
May your highest self hold you and caress you and heal you.

May we all fall in love with one another over and over again.

Day 62 New Beginnings- Water Tree

Original art by Judith Parsons 2015. 
New Beginnings.

As we move toward the longest night, the energy has been shifting and settling. 

You see yourself walking down a path in the woods, you get to the secret door that leads downward. 

The wooden door is heavy and the hinges are squeaky, however you manage to get it open. 

You have your torch at hand and you have taken the steps before, you know it takes a while to get to the basement…And you know when you get there-- there will be your love waiting with a fire in the hearth.

You endure the cold, the darkness. You know the steps to get to where you need to go. You have learned patience. You have matured in your knowing, you are wise enough to know what NOT to partake of. You know what assists you in your life. All these “knowings” have quieted your soul.

You have done much work to get exactly where you are. You nod to yourself as you step downward. Sure there is much work to be done, but you can see the paths that lead to the completion. For now, you rest. You journey home, to where you can lay back and place your head in a compassionate lap. You yearn for the cool hand upon your brow and soft caress upon your face.

Rest. All the hurt of the past is done. All the old is behind you. You have suffered through it to learn the word: “now.”

You have done all that needs to be done and can relax now. You are healing and becoming better and stronger for all the work you have done.

You step off the last step and are at the door of home. You turn the knob and see the golden light flickering its coppery dance upon the walls. You can smell the fragrant inhaling scents that make you smile. You hear the music in the kitchen and pots and pans being moved about. 

Far away you hear the wind howl, it nods her approval of your arrival of you. Welcome home, to your heart and hearth. You are love!

Art of Judy Hurley and John Thompson!!
How awesome to meet the read dear!!!


At the bus stop on Stockton, right before the tunnel I spot an older couple. The man is very caring and empathetic toward his wife, he helps her sit down and then he fetches her a bottled root beer. It is cold, unusually cold, and I am regretting leaving my toasty warm little nest.

The woman asked me how long I have lived in San Francisco and I tell her briefly about my quest to finish my MFA. She brightened up and smiled and told me that she too was an artist, and that her husband was too. A few buses came and I brushed them off, eager to hear more about these really awesome folks.

We asked what mediums and I finally located a pen and paper so she could write down her husband’s name. She said look up John Thompson the psychedelic artist. And he kept telling me about his wife, that her work was just as good- or better. 

He gingerly took her hand and they walked arm in arm toward the Stockton tunnel. I waved and finally caught my bus. When I got home, I looked them up and I about fainted. There two people are incredible artist!!
I am stunned by their portfolio of art work! They have lived lives as artist that most of us hunger and yearn for! I was blessed by this incredible alignment of space and time. Was this a mere coincidence? Nope. It was synchronicity at its best! It was a fabulous star alignment!

I would love to re-connect and meet them in Carmel, walk along the beach and help them tell their story! Stunning artists! Wooooohoooooo!!!

Life is amazing!
