As you approach the wall from an angle the words are not clear.   As with many things in life, IF you change your perspective, you will get better focus and understanding.

We often experience these moments of clarity in our daily lives as we analyze our situations and experiences, try something new, modify our behaviors, etc.
How to use this Art as a transformational tool:

Read each word, look at yourself, and then sit with whatever comes up for you.

Get in close or step away to get perspective; look closely at the details, but don’t forget about the big picture.

Use the keys:  your positive character traits, and the affirmations to unlock and free yourself from your pain, anger, misdirection, fear, etc.



Do you identify with the word or not?

Does it make you think of someone else?
What emotions do you have?


Whether it makes you feel uncomfortable or not, happy, sad, angry, vulnerable, whatever, just sit with what comes up for you: face it , recognize it, take it in, reflect on it, and then choose to hold it or to let it go.



“Reflections” offers the opportunity to ask yourself questions like:
How do you see yourself?
How do you want to be seen?
Who do you want to be?
What do you want to do with your life?
What do you offer to the world?
How can you effect change?
What are you looking for?
How do you want to be remembered?
How do you effect the people around you?
What are your life priorities?




LEAVE A TRACE:
There are books and pens for you to write down your feelings about how this project and these questions resonate with you. Please feel free to enter your thoughts, processes, dreams, visions, etc. and then return the book and pen to the box. (You do not have to sign your name)

Thank you for taking time to reflect on your life experiences too.

I must take in and sort out the lessons from all of my experiences.


I must set the intention for my life path.


I must let go of the emotional burdens.


I must reflect on my experiences and be willing to transform my Self.

Why did I make this piece:

Astrologically, for me, Pluto is in transit to Mars, which represents a pretty serious self-transformation cycle.   It only happens every 284 years, so most of us never even experience it in our lifetimes.   Since it appears that a personal transformation is in the stars for me, I have no choice but to take it on.

It is time to choose what I want to make of my Self.
What ripples I would like to make?
What reflections I would like to see of my Self?
How do I want to be seen and remembered?
What mark do I want to make on people's lives?

I have high hopes and aspirations for my Self.   I desire to break the cycles of my familial past.   My present, future, health, and ability to love and be loved, depend on me doing so.   I have to trust in my Self that I have the strength, courage, and integrity to face this and any transformation, to accept it, and know that I will be a better human because of it.

Everything IS possible.

I am ready, I am a survivor, I am open.
The motivation, intention, and inspiration for this project: “Reflections”, lies in my yearning to find peace, love, forgiveness, and acceptance in recent life experiences.

From 2006 to 2011, I felt as if I was stuck inside of a ever spinning cloud of dark energy...My personal relationships, soul, and spirit was overwhelmed and overburdened with intense emotions from dealing with grief because of so many family members and friends who had recently died, one right after another frommurder, suicides, diseases, criminal trials, deceit, separation, disrespect, misunderstandings, poor communication, etc.

Some are such horrible things that they are incomprehensible, yet they have happened.  They are part of my experience in this world, and part of what makes me who I am, but not my fault, and not what defines me, instead what informs me.

How I choose to let the experiences affect me, what energy I hold and how I move through them though is MY choice.

I am empowered to change, it is up to me to reflect and take responsibility for what I can.

This project is dedicated to shireen Press, and to the lives and memories of Chance Caffery, Betty Cuevas, Fred and Doreen Stafford, Lester and Bernice Caffery, and Casson Mink.

Help Kricket get her Art seen and more Art made!

The large majority of the Art (creatures, puppets, and installations) that I make are made at my own personal expense.

Various times throughout the year I provide FREE (or donation based) entertainment at community events and street fairs;  bringing smiles, playtime, imagination, and inspiration to the masses of all ages, but it costs me money in order to do them, and often donations are no where near the cost of my expenses to be at the event.

Anything you can offer is greatly appreciated, thank you very much for your support and encouragement.
