Expanding on my gratitude list, just because I can! I wish to share the deep connection and friendship that I share with my 'Souls of Byron' sister. In this moment, in this space, I wish to acknowledge this special soul. Elie is the 'hOMe' of Souls, without her this project would not be the magical unfolding that it is. El had the inspiration for 'Souls', she was the clear channel, the vessel for the vision. Together we have an alchemy, united, we are the 'ones', who wish to create beauty and connection in the world. Our bond has a strong foundation built in honesty and trust. I was always going to be her 'co creator', the other 'chosen one'.
I am eternally grateful for the intuition of this woman, there have been times when I have relied on her to navigate and guide us on this 'Souls' journey. Friendship is like that, what grace, when one is able to hold the fort, with understanding and compassion when the other needs to go down for awhile. It goes both ways, we are a holding for each other. I am learning through my friendships what it means to really love. Friendship has been a lighthouse for me, my loved ones, seeing my light and beauty in the moments when I could not. I had moments when I forgot who I was, forgot the contribution that I had to offer the world. Elie never wavered, not once. She saw the talented, creative, shining, woman that stood before her. Humble, generous, pure of heart. Soft, strong, self responsible and flexible. These are the words that are coming to mind as i write about El. She has a deep wisdom and knowing that she is the creator of her world. Her commitment and love for her family is precious to witness. The altruistic, passion, exuberance and reverence she holds for life, constantly, touch, moves and inspires me.
I am grateful for all it, especially for the adventure! With El and I, it has always been about the adventure! Lady, I feel so blessed for your friendship and so grateful to call you my family. I love you X
