“Dear Humans, Please use your considerable power to defend us against the few dumbasses in your military who think it’s a good idea to torture, maim and kill us in the name of obsolete war games. When we are all gone, all that is left for you is the water and the dumbasses with their ships and guns.
You can go here and listen to what we are talking about and watch a video of that charming, handsome, actor who played in one of those 007 movies. Thanks for taking action.” -Orcas of Earth
In my meditation and prayer practice, I often send love and light to the creatures of Earth’s oceans. I saw the synchronicity for me to be contacted about this event. I was honored to be asked to donate Beluga towards the Save Lolita Fundraising Event in Chicago this May.
Lolita is a real whale at a water park in Florida who has been held captive for 40 years and has the best chance of being moved out of her inhumane residence back to the wild with her pod, where she belongs. Get the full story of Lolita here. If you have not seen the Blackfish movie, please do so to further educate yourself on this topic.

The sadness of missing my Ohio tribe (I am NOT referring to baseball) is balanced by my joy of having my paintings on canvas represented in a fabulous show of talent by Ohio women. Earthtones: Aerie ballroom of the divine feminine for the Downtown AKron ARTwalk is happening this Saturday, April 5th in my glorious hometown of Akron, Ohio. It takes place at 57 E. Market St. with parking across the street at the Akron Art Museum parking garage.
Here’s one of the paintings to be included that epitomizes my love for Akron.
I also sent new work, inspired by the raven who first showed me I must leave my roots in an informal shamanic journey Kundulini Yoga class I took in Columbus, Ohio back in 1998. Since then, the raven appears in my visions and in the material world often as a synchronicity sign to keep aspiring to change, reaching for further heights of accomplishment in striving for my own life’s highest potential.
I will also have this Butterflies work on oil in this show. They show up in my world also as a sign of synchronicity and affirmation of my life path.
One of the best experiences I had in live painting last summer was with this tree captured at a joyful event on Lake Erie. I finished the details later and have this oil to represent the endless beauty of nature found in Ohio.
If you are near Akron next weekend, surely check out my work and many other talented photographers, painters, sculptors and musicians at this not-to-be-missed event curated by the amazing Eartha L. Goodwin. Infuse some divine feminine into your life and buy a piece for your home! xxooYabette
