Melissa recalls seeds of story from a line of powerful female ancestors: mother, grandmother, great-grandmother. They passed down wisdom while tending the earth together, cultivating nourishment of both body and soul.
Melissa encourages you to unearth your own "deep inner truths," "taking you further into your holy being." Read the rest of her photo essay here, along with many more inspiring pieces (poetry, interviews, fiction, artwork, creative prompts, & more):
Phoenix, what seeds of truth have been planted in your own life? What is ready to burst into bloom? What needs gentle tending?
Your truth is waiting for you.
love & awe,
(your fellow phoenix)
