Zen Rose Flora

I am intuitive in a way that even when I’m not sure, I trust the process. In 2017 people were so curious as to why I was seeking out wilted flowers. My visions at the time seemed so unrealistic that I wasn't even sure why most days. I made a lot of art but mostly, it gave me something to look forward to after pulling myself out of a dark depression. This seemingly random photo project of mine manifested enormously. Within 6 months I was offered a job with a local florist. For a year I swept the floors, took out the trash, made the deliveries and all the laboring jobs no one else wanted to do. I watched and observed the designers intently hoping some day they'd give me a chance. Sandie began teaching me over the summer of 2018. She told me I was under her wing now. A few months later she passed away. My very first flower arrangement without Sandie's guidance was extremely emotionally difficult. I can still hear her voice in the back of my head while I'm creating. She believed in me more than any one, including myself, so I have vowed to keep moving forward with this in her honor. It has been a whirlwind of energy since she left us. There have been synchronicities throughout my life that has lead me to this point. I have found two very different mediums that I truly connect with. One that freezes time forever and one who's time is temporary.
I found my Zen.
