Orion's Dream.

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

There's a story behind this image. Many years ago, I gave a boyfriend of mine (Michael) my favorite stuffed unicorn named Orion. Even after my romantic relationship with Michael ended, we remained friends and he kept the unicorn. But I didn't find out until years later that he still had it...which inspired me to create this piece in honor of that. Sadly, Michael died on October 2, 2003 from complications caused by a brain tumor. So, this piece has become a very special symbol of our bond and our friendship. Please remember that this image is copyrighted and it's use outside of this gallery is subject to my terms and conditions. Thanks! :)

For Lily

This poem is dedicated to a close friend (and fellow poet): Caryn Brooke Ecker (known to her online friends as 'Lily of the Greenwood'). Caryn passed away on New Year's Night (2003) after a long illness. She was a amazing person, a brilliant poet and a dear friend. I like to believe she dwells with the Faeries now.

Time and Memory

From time to time, I get especially inspired by my Muse and the words seem to flow out almost faster than I can write them down...this was the result of one of those occasions. I was fortunate enough to have it included in a small press UK publication called 'ELF Magazine' a few years ago. :)
