I'll Be Your Mirror

Vali Myers and Foxy - Polaroid self portrait




I’LL BE YOUR MIRROR

I’ll be your mirror
Reflect what you are
In case you don’t know
I’ll be the sun
The wind and the rain
The light on your door
To show that you’re home.
When you think the nights as in your mind
Bent inside, you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands, cause I see you.
I find it hard
To believe you don’t know
The beauty you are
But if you don’t
Let me be your eyes
A hand to your darkness
So you won’t be afraid.
When you think the nights as in your mind
Bent inside, you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands, cause I see you.
I’ll be your mirror

The Weekly Familiar - Fox

Vali Myers and Foxy 

THIS WEEK'S FAMILIAR IS FOX.

Fox: The fox has a bad reputation in our society. Called cunning and labelled as a pest on this earth. But the fox is simply doing what it knows it must do - SURVIVE. The fox is very smart and it knows how to overcome many obstacles. The message from Fox is about solving problems and creating solutions in hostile environments. Through intuition and keen senses fox shows us how to avoid the traps and baits of perpetrators and thrive in the natural world.  All problems can be solved, it is how we go about it that counts. Fox also asks us to question the idea of reputation, of being judged as wrong or right by anything other than our own spirit. Fox asks us to look beyond conditioned perceptions, to make up our own minds and to dive deeper than surface appearances to understand the spirit within and all that it needs to survive. The Fox.

Be Wild!

Tony.

This Charming Man - Fire King by Nadia Turner

This charming man is ‘Fire King’ by the wonderful Melbourne illustrator, Nadia Turner (www.waywardharper.com). Thanks to Nadia’s warm generosity, he has pride of place on our Summer Courses poster. We have chosen the Fox as our animal totem for 2012 - a deeply intuitive creature so beloved to us. 

If you would like to have your very own print of Fire King,  Nadia has informed me that she has just a few of these prints left. The fine art prints of Fire King are absolutely stunning - just looking into his deep & wise eyes is a daily inspiration. I love him & I know you will too.
