Mississippi Half Step

Hello baby I'm gone goodbye....

A few weeks ago I had an amazing evening seeing Dark Star Orchestra in the beautiful city of Ojai.

During the second half of the show, they played one of my favorite songs - Mississippi Half Step. I have no idea why I love this song. I've never been to Mississippi and I can't relate to the lyrics. But, I feel it in every bone of my body. During the show, as the wind was lightly blowing and my bare feet were dancing on the earth the melody of the song just seemed to pour into my soul. I love this music. It fills my being in a way nothing else does. And when all the elements are there...its just nirvana. This is what connects us as sisters.

I just want to take a tiny bit of the beauty of the music and transform it into hippie goddesses that can bless a home with all the ingredients of a Grateful Dead experience - connectedness, nature, joy and peace.

I started what may be a life long project to create a series of portraits of Deadhead women. We are all here to walk each other home...and I believe every home needs magical art to bring in the good vibes.

If you would like to be a part of the project - drop me an email!



p.s. Head over to Instagram or Facebook to see all the DeadHead Women United recreated in fabric
