What Im interested in doing.

For the next eight months I will be trying to complete a novel. I have never wanted to be a writer which makes this alittle interesting. I was drawing these costumes and I thought it might be interesting to imagine what clothes might look like in the future...way in the future. As I spent time night after night relaxing and drawing I couldnt stop creating their world around them. As a teacher I naturally think about how to effect the children? How can I teach them to see more? How can I prepare them for their future? What are they going to need? What is truely important? Then Sansaria said  "I can show them". She said "give me a life and I can show them! The drawing didnt really speak at least not audibly but in my head. Well, apparently she is very very stubborn and wont leave. She's been there for about seven years now workin out the finest of details and now  I feel somewhat ill prepared for her birth.
A girl friend of mine listened to my story and thought I could use a "Sacred Women's Journey" to commemorate and somewhat facilitate her exit from my brain and on to paper... hence the trip to Jordan. Somewhat creepy timeing with my gradschool studies starting... which incorporates a Self Designed Writing Science Fiction class and a Mythology and Women class.
Now, hang in there we are almost finished. Since I am an art teacher and an artist we cannot deny the need for visual understanding. So in Jordan I will meeting and organizing a cultural exchange between two high school art classes. The product of this colaboration will then be exhibited in the MOCADA Brooklyn NY.
So this blog is where Im going to make sence of all this. Im going to first cleanse my body, mind and spirit.Then Im going to make some space in my head so Sansaria can stretch her legs a little.
 See... what you don't know is the novel is all about girl power. You know simply speaking...girls needing to go back through time and make some changes so the universe runs on the track of survival. The mission of this book is to show young women that intuition can be inspired by many magical things and if you listen. the smallest decision could change the course of history.Thats all I'm gonna give ya right now though.
