The Best Support

The best way to help
Is to listen

Advice seems to pour
From those
Who insist they understand
But have never experienced it.

Those who help
Are those who listen

Those who accept
There is no magic cure
Accept they cannot instantly
Make things happily ever after

The best support
Is not a quick fix
But a listening ear,
No judgment,
And acceptance.

Hi I'm Shiloh.  I've lived with severe ME and Fibromyalgia since age 10.  I wrote this at age 16 after a year of being entirely bedridden.  I had a book of poems and drawings, 'Stranger In The Moving Chair,' self published in 2004.  Now I am still ill but not as severe and I love to experiment and find joy in art (self taught.)

all i did was listen books have arrived!

all i did was listen books have arrived!

i have begun packaging up the dear orders that have come in so far...
including these fun girlfriend packs!

shelves have been hung, in white, green, yellow, orange, pink + blue, 
for the other books to rest
+ await their new homes.

as delightful as it is to finally receive these into my hands,
i am finding that my deepest joy is in the sending them back out.
in the letting go. in the giving my heart away.
here's a lil' rough video of my first opening of the book ~
you can see both my practical/checking it out + simply delighted sides:

stars + shelves

as i got a lil' fear + temble-ee
about pursuing the moving forward 
with putting my book into
our beautiful world, this sentence dropped in
+ i made this drawing...really, for all of us.

+ beginning to put together what i'll set 
all these books on!

stay tuned, dear ones.

listening to you

Amy is a library-loving waitress who has a fascination with the night sky.  She paints, draws, and loves to listen.


by the wee fairy
juggling spheres of magic berries in her hand
not only did she watch
with her heart she did listen
for tales of once upon a time
spilled forth
with the mesmerizing spinning
tossing of each berry as it danced into the air
