I remember wandering aimlessly one day through a small local bookstore in St Augustine Florida. I was on vacation and was searching for a new experience. The bookstore was artsy, eclectic, had the smell of incense and there were crystals everywhere. Lots of unusual books dealing with self help, healing and creative spirituality. Something I was told was evil, and destructive to my soul. At that time in my life everything was black and white.
I was drawn to a poster and then to a collection of books written by a woman who's pen name was "Sark". At first I was thinking it was a children's book, handwritten with watercolor illustrations. The watercolor illustrations and lettering intrigued me. Then her words intrigued me.
In several movies I have seen where a journey would start in black-and-white and then progress to color. That is what happened. A world of color was before me and my tunnel-vision suddenly opened up; I saw vibrant colors and possibilities; escapes. I saw an inner spirituality that was different from a dictated belief structure. I was awakened.
SARK inspired me to: "Do the things that scares me!"
