Gratitude from my Heart to Yours

Drawing from the Essence of Life…

Dear Friends

After I shared my recent life changing event, the outpouring of love and support from all of you has been incredibly uplifting for me.  What a symphony of well wishes and stories you have shared that makes me feel so connected with you.  Sometimes the internet communication world can be a world of passively receiving information, yet I am learning that it also can be a heartfelt way of reaching out and asking for connection, and expressing how we feel.   When I read your posts, it makes me feel that much closer to you all and I feel so very fortunate that my life’s work has created such a loyal and loving following of like-minded people.

The drawing shown above was created at one of the equine facilitated workshops I taught when I was engaged in the process of drawing the “soul essence” of the person from receiving an intuitive message during a client’s reflective session with a horse.  I have often realized that as an artist who feels compelled to interpret and express for others, it is rare that I take the time to sit down and draw intuitively for myself.  When I do, I am always amazed at the profound imagery that evolves from the unseen world into the seen.  I thought you might enjoy seeing a few of my rarely shown personal creations that held powerful messages for me.

I know now that I have experienced a profound and daunting near death experience, that even though I have yet to put hand to paper, that when I do, I will be able to ask and receive insights into what this crossroads in my journey has in store for me…

The Weaver
This drawing was created during a workshop I taught at Epona – after I participated in a shamanic journey.
The message for me was that as an artist I am a weaver, and I create the horse as a tapestry from life itself

Heaven and Earth
This drawing was inspired by viewing the parts of myself in connection with heaven and earth and the elements

In closing I thought I’d share a couple photos of me in my younger years.  Some of you have known me from around that time!

 I recently heard an interview with Wayne Dyer where he said essentially that we are constantly changing and we are no longer the people/bodies that we were before… it is so true – I have grown so much and had so many magical times since these photos were taken, and my life is just beginning…  I am so grateful to have more of that life to live, and to have the continued vitality to express my creative spirit and continue to share it with all of you.

Thanks for listening…



  1. Kim, what a privilege and joy to be able for you to share yourself here….and a privilege for those of us who can share with you…and learn more about you ! We miss those opportunities too often in our lives…NOW is the time. There is more to come….yes !
    I love the drawings above….and the photos of you. I’m glad you’re continuing to heal….I did read Rod’s note also…my heart goes out to both of you….will talk to you soon. Love you both…

  2. Dear Kim,
    It is fun to see the “younger” pictures of you…that is when I first met you, when I was working at the Bainbridge Post Office and it has been so fun to reconnect from time to time over the years. Your work continues to bring light and happiness to me and I hope to attend a workshop sometime. I want to tell you again how very grateful I am that you are ok and that you were being held in God’s hands during that frightening experience. I believe we are here for a purpose and that is certainly true for you in your life and work. Love to you and Rod and continued health and happiness, Kim!!

  3. Wow, Kim: what an inspiration you gift us with here. Remarkable! Love the way the colors in your hair in the last photo are also those of Vaguely Noble, giving the impression that you are one.

    In an era that has largely abandoned imagination and spirituality, it is truly a joy to know you are still present, setting the world to rights and encouraging us to do likewise. If your choice of works here is anything to go by – and I believe it is – you are about to produce your best work ever.

    Much horse love to you


  4. Dear Kim,

    I just open this email and found out your story. I am so sorry to hear about that, but happy that you still alive in this beautiful world, sharing w/ so much generosity your spiritual experiences. Every experience has two faces and definitely you took the path of the positive face.

    May you be well and happy and free of harm! Much love as always, Beatriz

  5. Thank you for sharing Kim. You have articulated so well through the years the relationship that exists deep within our souls. When others were “training horses” you were expressing horses on their spiritual side and for me have been a light in the dark for so many years.

  6. Dear Kim,
    I too had a NDE once upon a time. I am also an Artist and a Shamanic pratitioner but my love of Wolves is first with Horses a close second 🙂
    Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou! for sharing your art and your stories with us. I always find your blog and your art, inspirational! So glad you stuck around 🙂

  7. Many thanks Kim, truly beautiful work. x

  8. Kim,
    Just love “Your Expression of Gratitude” from Your Beautiful Spiritual Heart!
    It’s always an inspiration to look at and feel the beauty in your art and read your touching words, and it is such an added pleasure to see the beautiful photos of you. You are a truly beautiful person, both spiritually and physically! Absolutely love the photo of you and Vaguely Noble! May God, the Angels, and the Spirits of Horses continue to watch over you!
    Michael & I will keep you in our thoughts & prayers. Lucille
