Here’s how it is…

I simply adore the path a girl walks from Shikomi to Geisha, a path of empowerment in art, a structure nurturing the space of flourishing beauty. As someone who has practiced meditation since 16 years old and art… oooh lets say all my living days, the idea of claiming a space in my heart where art and awareness can grow intwined is a delight.
Building on this.. the structure of a matriarchal society where each moment of art is not one of competativeness but the very root of community.. as someone brought up in the shadow of the Elmhirsts I feel almost a duty to follow the trail which leads between the Flowers and Willows.

So… I make a start, or rather I have made a start and now take the time to start ‘blogging’ about my experience. Starting as Minarai.. looking towards my Misedashi (announcement) as a Maiko ready to face the world, ready to give and share art in community and perhaps take on others who wish to follow the trail – perhaps a little behind me so they can learn from my mistakes ^^ – I step out. Thanks for reading..
