Happy New Year!
Kai: I am very excited to present my new short story for the New Year! This short story/poetry novel is about a spirit who continues to live on no matter what troubles it faces in it’s many bird lives. It was of course inspired by the avians in my life, but the idea for the tale came to me when I was listening to the empowering song, “Fully Alive” by Flyleaf. With that, I added much of my awaiting poetry to the abstract story to make it complete. However, the birds did not seem to think it was complete – A day after finishing this book, a sparrow hit our window and perished in my hands (which I have never experienced before). This moment was somber, but surreal – I took it as a sign that this story will continue to craft me, and others who care to read it. That is my hope, anyway.
I am very proud to share this book, as it is more full-length than much of what I’ve shared so far. So I hope you too, will face your phoenix this year, and claim the kind of life that is rightfully yours.
In addition to kicking off the New Year with this new book, we at Sacred Visions Studio have many plans for this year. As I did last year, I would like to once again, release one digital book a month. Arianna plans to try one new recycled craft project each month, and share it with you all. And Avery continues to develop awesome new animations/film projects.
We of course have much more than just these plans going on, and we hope to share as much of it as we possibly can.
We wish everyone a beautiful new start, and a happy, healthy, inspiring, New Year!
