a hypnotic and holistic, yoga kind of

:L O V E: 

i don’t know if it exists;

not like this anyway:

You have killed my sincerity too. I will never know again who I am, what I am, what I love, what I want.

Your beauty has drowned me, the core of me.

You carry away with you a part of me reflected in you.

When your beauty struck me, it dissolved me. Deep down, I am not different from you.

I dreamed you, I wished for your existence.  

I see in you that part of me which is you.

I feel compassion for your childlike pride, for your trembling unsureness, your dramatization of events, your enhancing of the loves given to you.

I surrender my sincerity because if I love you it means we share the same fantasies, the same madnesses.”

~ Anais Nin

Dear God,

I’m trading in my dark chocolate-covered daydreams for a seriously sensual mantra in hopes of manifesting your Godliest, Cosmic Cowboy-ist, kind of Love.

About Michelle Dawson

Michelle Dawson is a prolific Body Artist who hails from the Black Dirt region of Upstate NY. She combines the ancient arts of Henna and Yoga as a means of reaching the sacred poise of Body and Mind. Referring to her craft as Body Art by Michelle, she owns and operates a Yoga studio in Chester, NY. Her self-appointed title is Black Dirt Goddess and her goal is to deliver Art to Asana and return Asana to the Arts.

Michelle can be found adorning appendages anywhere from NYC streets to Holy festivities in grandiose temples: she believes that every body was created for the satiation of the Artist. www.bodyartbymichelle.com
