Last Sunday I found this 17th century trader’s token laying on the surface of the riverbed, exposed by the tide as it receded. Coincidentally, I have a very personal connection to this 350 year old token. Stamped around the perimeter, it says, “ROBERT REDWAY AT YE LION IN FETTER LANE.” The buildings in Fetter Lane off Fleet Street were unfortunately destroyed twice since this token was produced in the 17th century... first in the Great Fire of London in 1666, and again during the London Blitz in World War II. I am one of the lucky architects who has worked on the regeneration of Fetter Lane. For over 3 years, I worked on the design and construction of a 15 storey office building which was completed in 2016. Swipe left for photos of my building in Fetter Lane which is now the European headquarters of an international law firm. I feel privileged to have been a part of urban regeneration of this street which was ravaged in the Great Fire and devastated by Nazi bombers.
This sacred place 🙏 I found while adventuring myself in the mountains of Mo’orea. The moment I stepped into this path rain started to pour down clearing my entire soul body mind. Tears started to poor down from my face and my body went in full shaking mode. I had spent all morning connecting with the ocean where I had the same happening. Tears and shaking while setting my prayers, my intention for my quest in this land. Deep healing with the masculine is what is happening for me right now. In a very cellular blue print level. Forgiving. Softening. Allowing myself to open again is what Ive been calling in. Life has hardened me up. My initiations have been huge. From many thousands of years until this life Time I have been holding such a massive wall against the masculine. Coming to a full cycle of healing to end this collective anger/ grudge that we hold with the masculine is what my heart is aching for right now. How can we ever find that state of inner union if we are still unconsciously holding onto pain? The pain of separation. The pain of oppression, repression. The rage that we locked ourselves in once we saw our temples burnings and our sisters being rapped and killed? If we don’t let that one go the History and lessons will keep repeating itself. This is a big one for me and as I write this I cry. But Spirit somehow got me here after I had a vision while on a shamanic breathwork in July. I saw two peaked mountain surrounded by water asking me to find them. They told “come my granddaughter, we have a gift for you in here. Find us”. As I came from my vision I thought it was somewhere on Kauai. So I tried to get there but couldn’t. So a friend invited me to Tahiti. I came without even knowing anything. Yesterday as I was praying Tm with the masculine is water I saw the two peaked mountains. I was hanging in my paddle board and it the tide drifted me towards that beach. I was in shock. More yet to come. #maururu#moorea#forever#grateful#exploring#mountains#found#ancient#sacredtemple#sacredland
So as you prepare for Thanksgiving this week, please be mindful of where your food comes from and if it's organic. This is the the sign that sits on the boundary of this non organic lettuce field... For those who can't read the small print... It says except for activity NOT related to the foliage. Which is the leaves, the part you're supposed to consume... What you buy and who you but from matters. In all things. Food or fabric related. @soulcarebyccc is on the sustainable fashion... Thank you to all the organic farmers out there who are not poisoning the planet yourself, or themselves and workers!! I see you and I appreciate what you do. I give thanks to you this week. And every week, every day, every time I eat. This is what mindful eating is to me... We are all stewards of the land by the choices we make about what to eat. What are you choosing? What do you contribute to? #ericamontgomeryphotographs#eurekadesigns#stories#found#farmersmarketfresh#grateful#thankyouuniverse

Two years ago, around this time of year when I first got Hank, we lost a glow ball here I assumed down a stream on a trail near Octagon Pond. We left and I never really thought anything more of it.
Today, we went to the same spot again just exploring looking for photo spots, and I look up and hanging on a tree branch is the ball we lost. I wonder how long it’s been hanging there 😂😱. Thank you kind stranger, I’m glad you thought we might be back. #lostandfound#secondtimethishashappened .

This sweet girl came to our porch last night. She’s very friendly and has to be a pet. She had no collar. We put her in our garage overnight and fed her a can of tuna. She wouldn’t have survived night out in our hood amongst coyotes. We checked for signs in neighborhood this morning and then dropped her at SD Humane Society. Please share. Can’t keep her and someone must miss her
