A definition of myself.

I’m sprinkled with stars.

Look at my skin, I’m freckled by time.

Every book, billboard, poem, song on the radio, Om at the end of class, my babies’ cries and vee’s of geese flying over the laundry line are still within me, echoing. Even my father’s voice calling my name in reprimand and the sound of car tires in snow at the lake are still murmuring within me.

I dream of snow and people and plans and I can still taste my dream in my mouth, like Nehi Root Beer. I’m a woman who has come upon roadblocks, barriers, abuse, withholding tax, and diverted momentum and still, I don’t feel stoppable.

I am uncontainable joy.

Testimonials

“Creative inquiry is an inside job. We are often inspired by the beauty of nature, art, and craft, color and materials. But it is in taking time, taking stock, and valuing or own sensations, perceptions, experiences that reveals to each of us our own voice, our own purpose. When we recognize, reclaim, integrate our orphaned experiences, we re-establish broken inner connections in ways that restore us to wholeness.

Suzi’s work speaks to the power of this recognition. Holding space for people to tap into their creativity, to see that space as sacred, to experience it as their best resource, and to then form communities for the sharing of the gifts from that resource has become her life’s work.”
