The Night Before Solstice (Crone Denial NO More!)

The Night Before Solstice by Kathy Crabbe Crazee Janice dancing as fast as she can by Kathy Crabbe (Creative Soul Deck)

I got sick for a day, probably because I burnt out on marketing, so I'm throwing it all out the window for Solstice...letting go...ahhhh. As I sit in my hot tub and feel the weight lifting I relax fully and completely into Goddess; into me.  Funny thing is, when I do this two great ideas come to me.

  1. I need to focus on ME and that's okay; in my art and my writing.
  2. There isn't much out there for the CRONE online. It's Millennial dominated (and Gen X) and I am the bridge.

I was born in 1965 so I am the very first of my generation (Gen X) to turn fifty. I understand the computer and am comfortable there and I can share all I do with other CRONES.

Strangely enough,  I was at a store yesterday (bargain shopping, of course) with my buddy; a fellow artist and crone, and the checkout lady asked if I wanted the Senior Discount. "What?!" I said..."NO! I'm not a senior yet". My friend, Terri Stiles Alkayali who is, inquired what qualified one as a senior and then gladly took the 20% discount. Later, she laughed, saying I was in CRONE DENIAL. I love that term. Did she make it up? Anyway, here's to the CRONE and yes, I celebrate CRONE-DOM with my beautiful grey hair. I'm fifty and proud of it. ***Blessed Be***

NEW: Creative Soul Guides ~ Awaken your creative soul (Creative Soul Museletter Nov. issue)

Creative Soul Guides13 years ago I began painting with my non dominant left hand; the intuitive hand, the hand that sparked my deep journey and where I discovered I was a Creative Soul Guide, not just for myself but for others as well. All this coincided with turning 40 (Uranus Opposition, astrologically speaking) and exploring far deeper spiritual and psychological waters than I'd ever ventured into before. Turning 40 kinda does that to you, but it ain't always easy! Anyway, the Creative Soul Guide paintings have evolved over the years through zines and chapbooks, poetry readings, an onstage Hollywood appearance with Michelle Shocked, getting published, winning awards, museum shows and much more. They have taught me how to take a chance, how to slow down, and how to trust myself intuitively.

With the encouragement of a small but very devoted fan base I've finally launched a Creative Soul Guide website which is live and ready for you to visit. To make things even better I am offering FREE shipping within the USA and $5. shipping worldwide.

Welcome to the NEW Creative Soul Guides site

The Creative Soul Guides have also taught me about honesty and simplicity and so I'm not going to offer you any razzle-dazzle holiday sales, but instead keep my prices fair and shipping low or free. All my prints are 8.5 x 11 inches and are $20. All originals are $75.

No matter what your situation in life, I hope these paintings guide you and inspire you to believe in you; your uniqueness, your good heart and your creative soul.
