This is for the Artisans… We See You
For the woman who carries her art in her body, her blood and her bones. For the woman who moves through the world setting down roots, and digging in deep to the bedrock of life.
We see you, making the spaces, holding the walls and building the paths.
You’re the one who’s up early, rising with the Sun to make a start on what needs to be done. And the last one to bed, smeared with dirt, ruffled hair, shining eyes.
This is for the woman who works.
You know that to make (your) magic in the world, muscle and movement are what’s needed. Which is why you are strong, relentless and loyal to the end.
We see you.
Caring about what it all becomes.
Because you’re not only a maker, you’re an artisan and your craft is shaping the world we all get to live in.
And for the woman who sits thinking, inventing and devising the plan. Three steps ahead and four blocks down the road, you see what’s coming and you know how to manage. No detail unconsidered, no element left to the winds of change… We trust you.
With everything we have.
This is for the woman who teaches and explains, patiently handholding others as you leap together through hoops down practical roads which have all been walked before… to find freedom on the other side.
We see you patiently coloring inside the lines, ticking the boxes and nodding your head. We see you changing the world from inside the system, not burning it up into flames.
This is for the woman who trusts her own path. Walking the leading edge of your lineage, we see you yearning to learn the wisdom of your own past. We see how deep your sense of home is buried, and want you to know that the healing you seek will be found there – the work you are doing is real.
This is for the woman who belongs. Even when you feel like you don’t. We see you struggling to stretch your wings, preferring to keep them hidden at home. But we want you to know that you’re allowed…
…and to grow
…and to change.
For the woman who dares to move the wall and veer off the path. The woman who fears the flow but embraces it anyway. Because she knows in her heart that nothing stays the same. We see you, with a smile on your lips and hope in your heart….
And we want you in our world.
