Meraki (Greek) – “Essence of Self”.
Work infused with one’s soul, creativity, and love
Passion projects, creative work infused with the essence of or ourselves brings matter into being while returning its energy back into the process as an invitation to give more. The artist, writer, reaches only as far as willing to share, determining the diameter of connection.
As I send my message breathed from internal knowing, it resonates with those in my immediate circle loud and clear. We share kindred moments, our philosophies and hearts fused in an unspoken understanding.
Moving farther outward, it expands into a greater crowd, melodious but undefined, finally to be barely audible to those in different dimensions, received only as vague rhetoric.
Through space and time, my being harmonizes with words written centuries ago. Messages burrow through initial exposure, are planted in fertile ground, and eventually sprout merged with my essence.
I feel connected to something unexplainable, an energy that has the force of a universe yet the touch of a feather. Lightly tickled, yet burning within, I strive to share in a meaningful way. Often, the words splatter on paper in abstract fashion. Other times, arranged in poetic prose.
Whims of Words
I prefer to follow Whims
rather than rules
Allow the Heart to
as they Matter
Calling to be
-Erika K Rothwell
Life’s messages are hidden within uniquely crafted stanzas, metaphors, and paradox. Clues lead to discovery of a deeper meaning. The central theme, the heart of my matter.
As tears transcend difficult moments, words bridge the expanse between me and you. Other times, writing with these drops of honest vulnerability, they are added to the sea of humanity.
In summary, I write with “meraki”. For understanding, compassion, and grace. To inspire, transform, and transcend. I write to plant, grow, and gather. To uncover, discover, and treasure. To encourage, incite, and excite. But mostly, I write to hope, love, and live.
From Me to You,
