Through the course of writing the book Mandy found the importance of listening to her own voice, especially when that voice was angry, angsty, scared, unsure and/or confused. In the dark place she learned the value of hearing and accepting her own truth. She rebelliously did this in her underground layer by art journaling, writing, collecting secret messages, practicing yoga and sharing space with a few trusted friends. (Who love her because of not despite of her paradoxical tendency to either wander barefoot in a field of wildflowers with her head in the clouds or to sit troll-like under a bridge threatening to eat people.) She believes all is Mystery and most days she actually prefers that. Where the Mystery and the Messy collide, Madness is created. Madness is home.
She blogs her messes regularly at MandySteward.com. She also creates custom painted and inked Secret Messages for individuals, self-publishes a subscription based ‘Zine of gypsy journalism, and co-creates a way to thrash through spirituality via The Wild Mystics. She finally has a Self and finds that breathtaking.
