we are both

Kathryn Aaker, SF, Canon Digital Rebel

“We are the mirror as well as the face in it.
We are tasting the taste this minute
of eternity. We are pain
and what cures pain, both. We are
the sweet cold water and the jar that pours.”
– Rumi

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    A beautiful, sensitive portrait. Your work continues to inspire. What a novel approach, having the model look away from the camera.

    What a wonderful combination, Rumi’s words, centuries old, and this beautiful image from our own time.
    I can’t believe how big you’ve gotten since I met you at the BlogHer conference (I’m the author who was selling my book, Come Back, across the swag-a-thon aisle from you.) Looks like you’re going to have one very big baby boy. I know it was a long, hard wait – I’m so happy for you!
