Hellena Post - Creatrix

I've tried on so many uniforms and badges that now I'm just me - mother of 8 children and all that entails, flowmad, and human animal parent. Writer of this living book of a blog, philosopher, and creatrix of hand dyed and spun crocheted wearable art. I gave up polite conversation years ago, and now I dive into the big one's.....birth, sex, great wellness, life, passion, death and rebirth.

Just for something completely different.......

Isn't it a funny thing?  While being known for my public honesty, and like a dear woman told me in an email, for 'having a huge set of gonads', when it comes to putting quite personal information 'out there'..........I've been a bit shy of the whole vlogging thing, even while steadily working towards being able to do it.  And with the advent of a macbook in my life, a lot of my computer skills have been given dream tools to work with, and they all interconnect beautifully........so hence this was actually a lot easier to do than I thought.

But in the process, I also realised that it's an even more vulnerable opening to the world than writing.  Cause this is the real me.  In person.  I know I'm saying that a bit but it's tripping me out :)  The whole thing just came together yesterday, and this morning I have a channel and a video uploaded on Youtube, and here it is.  I hope you like it.  And that it doesn't turn out like some of those silent movie stars, who when they started talking, people went 'EEP!  Who'd want to listen to THAT voice!' 

And I'm all shaky as I do this, but I'm going to do it anyway......





Please be gentle with this video virgin!

    1. Well that's just so cool. Really should thank them for all the free advertising really :) And I'm glad that you found me likeable and interesting, cause that's how I'm used to being viewed in the world.....with anyone I actually talk to anyway. At least I'm unique. Don't want or need anyone to validate my life, cause it's the only life I can lead, but I'd love folk to know that if they have a crazy dream hidden down deep inside......that there's always a way for them to find the path, no matter how overgrown it may be, to get them into their dream! Thank you and big love

    1. Oh wow......I must admit I love the lurkers. To illustrate, I'll tell you a story. I've always loved animals. All of em. And every new place I went, I'd search out the animals or the kids to hang out with. Now some animals are friendly straight up, and give you heaps of love and wiggles and purrs, and some are just NEVER gonna come near you no matter how nice you are, and some are just not the sort of personality be it animal or human that you can resonate with, but SOME of them......kinda lurk in the background and seem a bit flighty, and observe what's going on, and if you're REALLY gentle and pretend that you're not noticing them, you can kinda inch your way towards them, and if you don't make a fuss, and act like you don't really care either way, sometimes you can touch them, and then when they trust you enough, they open up into this whole personality that not many other people get to see. And usually they're so glad of your company when you get there and they let you in, that it's worth all the effort, and their friendship s even sweeter cause it was harder to get to.

      Thank you so much for coming to share, and mostly of all, thank you for being touched by me and my stories :) Big love all the way to California!!

    1. Oh thanks darlin! We got a lot on here at the moment, but I'm doing my best to create a moment so I can introduce my Currawong to you all as well. And then the kids.....whoever wants to. And then who knows?! I like it a lot though. The quickness and ease of this video journalling thing is very alluring!
