Goddess Leonie!


Way way back in the mists of internet time...(I'm talking a whole four? maybe five years ago) I tired of my years of wandering and wondering and tried to set up home in that odd and mystical space.

SARK had a wonderfully colourful world into which I nestled...and there I braved up-loading some photos of my (rather large) doodles...all randomness and flowers. One day I logged in to find I had had a visitor, a visitor leaving me a lovely message about my picture, my poem and my doodles...that visitor was the wonderful Leonie

Until that point I had felt...well pretty much embarrassed about having put my pictures on-line...suddenly it felt ok. Off I went in search of Leonie to thank her, and found wonderful treasure, The Turquoise Journey, then Leonie's blog... still full of wonderful archives.

Over the years I would dip in to The Turquoise Journey, sometimes daily, sometimes monthly, always finding treasure, often spending hours of Leonie led web time, and taking delight in her unfurling as an artist, gorgeous goddess and sacred photographer.

In November last year The Turquoise Journey suddenly disappeared, I checked back the next day, the next week, and the next. Come January I was overcome by the need to create some new space out here for myself, and as ever wanted to create a link to Leonie's blog...but it was still missing...and I began to worry a little for Leonie...and I still missed her blog!

By February, maybe March I finally found it again, though it was still struggling a bit, having to be re-homed and re-launched...After her own wonderful journey in India, Leonie came back with gifts for everyone.

So this page is full of links, for those already loving Leonie that have lost her briefly in the move, and for those lucky ones about to discover her for the first time.

I shall add that there is a competition this month (one week left) and if you place a link to http://www.goddessleonie.com/ on your blog or webspace, or one of Leonie's wonderful buttons, and let her know, then you'll be in with a chance to win one of her lovely prints...I hearby forfeit my chance just to let you know that's not the reason for writing this blog and to give you a better shot at it!

I'm taking this chance also to mention that I discovered today that SARK has braved the world of blog too and has a myspace! (Leonie's in SARK's new book Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper BTW!)
