We all have a connection, a sound vibration, it becomes stronger when we become closer to our own spiritual realm. We weave our stories into it. It never breaks. When were with the creation, outside, we are outside of ourselves, in it, working for it, stretching it, weaving it, binding it, together. We all have ties, and we are all unique, so, when we call one another, or what we call one another identifies that uniqueness. Kaadamo or Anamitagize-Odaying is my spirit name. One who speaks from the heart. Creativity is a multi-layered connectivity of spiritual formation in motion.
