Welcome to my world

We all are born with gifts. Some we cultivate, and some are so much part of us that they take a back seat in our lives, shared (if at all) with intimates, or only oneself (imagine Renee Fleming limiting her singing to the shower). But then a time comes when the gifts themselves urge their instrument to let them be more widely known. As Anais Nin once wrote, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

It takes a certain humility and even generosity to recognize that sharing our gifts is not only for ourselves, though certainly it is for that purpose. The very root of calling them “gifts ” ~ rather than, say, “properties ” ~ suggests that they have been given to us for the purpose of being given. That a gardener gets to eat the most tender, succulent crops herself does not mean no one else should be able to enjoy them. A good gardener, a good crop, indicates an abundant table for others to also feast at.

And so this site is my feasting table. I have been blessed with at least three branches of the creative tree ~ writing, visual art, and music ~ and on this site I get to share them with you. I hope they will give you deep enjoyment and cause for reflection, and perhaps even spark the beautiful expression of your own gifts.

If you are moved by what you encounter here, and find yourself with a longing to bring forth your own creative beauty, you might wish to have a consultation with me to explore and accomplish that. The spiritual teacher and author, Gay Luce, once said of me, “What Naomi does superbly is to evoke the creative and articulate in each person who works with her ~ to such a degree that each one is surprised at his/her own talent for expression.”

Welcome to (the more inspired aspects of) my world. May it help bring forth the love, harmony, and beauty of your own.
