Why I Write
Why I write.
I am curious
about the place where solid land gives way to fluid water; the moment land leaps the horizon to dissolve into sky; and the magic of blue sky turning to mysterious space.
I am enchanted
by borders and edges, in the natural world as well as in the human body.
As an artist, I create to engage and embody these liminal places.
I am committed
to mythic living, a way of consciously living into the magical symbols that surround us. My writing draws on my experience with body-based practices, my lidless curiosity, and respect for the natural world, my passion for women's liberation, and my love of myth and story.
I am a storyteller.
I write to explore, to understand our world, and to imagine new worlds.
I warmly invite you on this journey into the unknown with me. ~Eila
