Who is Behind Little Raven Heart

Who is Behind Little Raven Heart

I decided that my first posts need to cover who the heck is this lady. Why is she posting. Why should I read it? And much more, but I'm scatter brained and we shouldn't cause my brain to go on a walk about just yet. We'll focus on who I am.

My name is Cassandra Rose. I'm just a random lady. Mama to 3 boys, we call em boybots. My bots are 7, 6 and 4. I'm multi-passionate, caring deeply about too many things. I'm a stay at home gypsy, meant to roam, but chose the homemaker route for this portion of my life. Married for 9 years; together 10, holy cow almost a decade. Known my hubs since I was 7. My best friend of 27 years is his little sister. Scandalous I know! And marriage has been freaking hard, amazing too. But we keep trekking along like snails trek, stubborn super hero snails. My boybot's are the reason I give a crap about everything, and they take up 85% of my time. But what is time anyway? We have a menagerie of animals. My kids want to be entomologists, technical archeologists, a police man and ninja masters. They eat veggies that many adults won't and chant kirtan before bed. My middle bot, has some special needs and has taught me to see the world in a radical new way. I'm uber spiritual and sort of religious. I also pray, chant, burn incense, meditate and teach kids and adult yoga. I brew homemade kombucha and collect geodes and house plants. I rearrange my furniture all of the time, and have no real style. I believe plants are a worthwhile investment and I live to be barefoot. I have matching blackbird tattoos with my sisters-in-law (they're my merle). My Grammy is my favorite lady on earth. That's a lie, She is amazing though. My "favorite people on earth list" is quite long, as I have a deep authentic love for many. I love tattoos, the craving for more is real. Picture above was pre-sleeve! My favorite is my boybot tattoo! 3 robots, one depicting each kid. I balter in my kitchen and sing about what I'm doing as I do it.

I believe FIRMLY in the good and beautiful, in our inextinguishable internal light. Life is short and fragile, and I'm okay with it. We're all intimately connected by a Life Force; a Holy Intelligence. I call it God, you call it what suits you best. The most good is found when serving others. I dream about owning farm animals, a city garden and green house and becoming a foster mom with a yard full of kids. And I hope to adopt. I use the word hope as to keep my feet on the ground. I don't need to do anything big with my life but I really do need purpose. So I am in constant search of purpose. This space gives me hope that I will indeed manifest this. If we send it into the universe it will provide. So I hope. I'm a photographer and helping in some way is my business. I'm excited to make this business transition. And if you're still reading?!?! Kudos. Thank you much.

I will develop rhyme and reason and structure to this blog. In the meantime, here we are! Trying to grow a following of sorts. As we gain a following perhaps we can bring good into some lives who need it.

Til next time.
