you make my soul soar: re-visited in animArt

airplane flying

 

 

you make my soul soar.

overflown with wonder and your essence,

you make my soul soar,

high,

into the big skies above.

Happy Friday Eve, my dears!

 

I wanted to animate this particular notecard and re-visit it because I am so fond of planes and the idea of flying. I also wanted you to stop for a moment and think about a person in your life that has made your soul soar; has made you absolutely inspired and determined to go for that dream that you were hesitant about.

Was it one of your parents?

Was it a sibling?

A significant other?

A close and dear friend?

Perhaps it was a teacher  – a person with a most noble profession – that inspired you to no end to reach for the sky and know no limits to your dreams or potential.

Who’s the last person that made you feel infinite and daring to march on?

Maybe…maybe that person was yourself :).

 

Love always & Namaste,

Volta

Mixmaster Dreams of Texas

There’s grandeur.

There’s opulence.

And then there’s Texan highways.

These majestic structures struggle heavily under the crisp blue sky that so often sighs in awe.

Yield to the right of way of  these immense pillars of concrete.

Yield,

and

Bow.

Texan highways have a funny thing about them…they terrify me and also leave me in absolute awe at the same time.

I feel so small riding under the huge mixmasters, and I feel so grand when I am at the very top.

Love always & Namaste,

Volta

An ode to Amsterdam

a fresh breeze and your curly hair,
bikes all around commanding streets,
and parks and canals.

explosion of taste buds and crisp blue skies hung above us
adventures, and laughter followed our steps.
my feet grew tired,
but there’ was more left to conquer.

Pledge allegiance to your soul.

Listen to the voice within.

Follow your dreams.

Surrender to your heart and the universe will reward you.

Pledge allegiance to respect your soul, wholly and always.

I’m back from a hiatus. Starting a new job and keeping up with the site seemed overwhelming and exhausting, so I wanted to step away from it for a while. Though, because I neglected a very important part of my soul, I struggled this entire time with my inner happiness and self-worth.

I relaxed. I stopped creating. I forgot my soul for a while and the results were heart-wrenching and extremely tiring. I kept telling myself that I was too tired to create, too tired to think of ideas, too tired to answer my soul’s desires. In return, I felt even more drained and lifeless.

But…it feels good to be back. And it feels good to have regained that part of me that for a while seemed to be so dormant.

I pledge allegiance to my soul.

And I hope you pledge allegiance to yours.

Love always and Namaste,

Volta

Do not fear leaving behind…

…the familiar. Go forth. Explore!

Many times, personal growth can happen when we leave the familiar and dive head in into strange experiences.  It may be scary and uncomfortable, but those are usually signs that we should do it, we should go for it. The things we can learn through those experiences are priceless and can lead to some incredible self discoveries.

And the best part about this – you don’t have to leave your city(though seeing a completely different culture is also beneficial). Just go to a different part of town, go somewhere you’ve never been before, try a new activity you’ve never done before, a new food you’ve never tasted…The possibilities are endless, if only you are willing!

Go forth!

Explore!
