I believe in miracles & limitless possibilities, and have every intention of helping bring real peace to all mankind. My poetry's purpose is to contribute a new perspective to help change/heal the mind of the world, such that we "change our minds & keep the change".

I wrote the poem for the Espanola Valley Visitors' Guide, here in New Mexico --it will be going to press very soon. I was hired to be the writer for the guide because I am such a good poetic storyteller, and we wanted to do something entirely different from the usual such guides.

Rachel C Thompson
is a writer, illustrator, political cartoonist, water color artist and human rights activist living in Bethlehem, PA.
"Most of my fine art is metaphorical in nature, and speaks to social issues via common or invented subjects. None of my watercolors are simply pretty pictures."
Her art is visionary in that she uses art to make unpopular social statements and/or observations using comfortable, non-threatening objects to draw the viewer in. Onlookers will see that the art work's title and pictured objects are often incongruent. The objective is for the viewer to think deeper. Rachel also uses multiple layers of symbolism in her art.
"My hope is that my art will inspire people to see past the surface, not only in my art but in all things. My art's message is to seek deeper meaning in all aspects of life."
Currently, Rachel's painting, "Dianne's Porch", can be seen at the William Way Community Center located at 1315 Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA. Her paintings (seen here), with the hummingbird motif, are from a three part work called "evolution" that can now be viewed at the Backer Center for the Arts, Muhlenberg College, Allentown PA. Samples of her political cartoons are in the current issues of, "Gaydar" magazine.

Even paintings are in motion set forth by the rhythm of brush strokes as the unseen, happening. Dancing Colors are illuminated when I touch them to the canvas but they go where they want; I'm the messenger only. Creation without pre-conception is spontaneous and images form through layers of formless shapes, colors, and lines.The brush is a tool for declaring the unseen...the same as your eyes. Landscapes of layered dimensions are forged from converging realities and the painting moves as you allow your eyes to unveil the scope of the journey, unfolding the movement of change, constant with your perspective. We all look at the same canvas yet none of us see the same thing. More appears with every viewing and conjures different feelings...The art is all inclusive, and the concepts are what you will, but, I present this space without conditions. And we are just beginning to enter...
Self taught with no specific style to emulate, Dhira Lawrence has chosen a path that attempts to break the preconceived notion of what art has to be. Dhira attended the Honolulu Waldorf school which allowed her to express her creativity at an early age. A spiritual upbringing that was centered around Goddess energy along with the natural beauty of Hawaii helped her to form a powerful bond with the earth and Her many forms. This is what is expressed in her art. She has displayed her work in San Francisco, Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest. Her images have touched people across the globe.
born in Wurzburg, Germany in 1964, the daughter of a German/Russian mother and Scottish/Welsh/Cherokee father enlisted in the United States Army.

Redbird, founded in 1990 and receiving federal recognition as a 501(c)(3) non profit association in 1994, is a Native American cultural awareness and environmental organization created by Corina some 14 years ago. Writing skill came early, with the first recognition at the age of nine and a novel called Red Rover, which won an all-school first place award against many older students.
Most of Roberts' work today focuses on cultural preservation and environmental education. She has written for a number of non-profit groups as well as doing freelance work. Her new novel, The Wisdom Walkers, available online at www.Lulu.com was the subject of a presentation titled "Telling Our Own Stories" on November 10-12, 2005 at the Southeastern University of Oklahoma's Sixth Annual Native Writer's Symposium in Durant, Oklahoma.

Drawing for me is a subconscious process. I only realise what I am drawing half-way through a piece, or at the end. This gives me insight into my subconscious, which I believe is important for self-discovery and emotional development. I guess it's like therapy for me. A few hours a day of intimacy with a blank page saves hundreds on psychiatric fees. Apart from that, I draw because I love it. I love creating little worlds and watching them grow to maturity. I take comfort in the fact that when I'm gone, my art will still exist. It makes me feel immortal. I think having a child would fulfill that same desire for immortality, but since I find it challenging enough to look after myself, I'm putting that off for quite some time. I can be contacted at either of the following websites: http://beinart.com.au http://surrealartforum.com
I translated The Seafarer from Anglo-Saxon; the translation appears at www.electrato.com. I have published 2 chapbooks The Street Where I was a Child and Departures.
Painting - Birth of Consciousness. Let the art speak for itself.
ME Jones is an ambitious and contemplative student of life and, unfortunately at times, formal education. She loves to read both classic and contemporary works, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge as her favorite English language poet and Alexander Pushkin her preferred international bard. Her favorite novel is The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho. She seeks to understand the issues of modern society through spirituality and individual experience with an omnipotent Presence. She opposes legislation that would prevent others from making their own personal decisions and speaking their minds freely. She wants to have a profound, direct, and beneficent impact on the course of human events within her lifetime, when she is not sleeping to avoid the constant rush of thoughts in her mind. She seeks to study the manifold cultures of the world in hopes of discovering ultimate truths both human and divine. Her deepest wish is to live a life of passion, and that the products of her love of life, man, and a certain man in particular to whom she is now promised, make the world a better place.

Lifelong artist, Jude Cowell, currently works primarily in oil and watercolor pencil on paper. This Georgia native's drawings may be viewed online at Cosmic Persona Designs Art Gallery, and at Dreamyfish Art , where postcards and limited edition prints are available upon request.
Here you see "Gazer Future Past" with its Venus and Chiron symbols...a lady brimming with prophetic abilities. The Venus-Chiron combination refers to charisma, magnetism, and grace. Their cycle (appr. one year) is descriptive of initiatory rites of self-transformation, and the beginning of their cycle--the conjunction relates to one's pursuit of The Quest or to the following of a vision or dream; in fact, visionary skills are likely with the Venus-Chiron pairing.
This lady has the ability to see the long-range view while simultaneously keeping the past in her sights...a useful talent, you'll agree. And she is being published here on Emerging Visions for the very first time.
Cosmic Persona Designs is a collection of archetypal feminine images, cosmic-visionary art (some from an earlier series, Unscene World), childrens' art, and more. An astrological influence is apparent, for Jude has been a serious astrology novice for 10 years, and is writer and publisher of the Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington.
Dreamyfish Art is a gallery of Saturn's realism--botanically-drawn tropical fish portraits--blended with Neptune's watery, illusory qualities--a combination which neatly describes the artist's natal Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces personality. Fish dream, too, and here you may have a sneak peek into their most favorite and secret dream locations undersea at Dreamyfish Art.
Several moons ago, Jude was an art student at Atlanta School of Art (now College of Art) on Peachtree Street, and even now you may detect a Fashion Illustration, Layout, and Design influence in her work, especially in the Cosmic Persona Designs collection. You never know what might show up at Cosmic Persona, but you are cordially invited to stop by when you can...and remember that fish dream, too!

I'm very excited to have just finished my latest book of poems, Snakebite, and currently am planning an e format release of it in the Fall. In addition to keeping the flow of poetry alive year after wheel of the year, I am now taking my studies of herbal medicine to the next level by growing herbs and preparing my own medicines. Last year I received my third Reiki attunement and am currently preparing myself to pass attunements and teach. My work as a healer and my work as a poet flow from the same source. And I am grateful to be able to continue and deepen my understanding of life and love through my Art and artful living. You can reach me at email@example.com. I would love to hear from you about my poetry, the healing arts or to share in awe over the Beauty of this sweet Earth.
