Henna bomb

I went into the interwebs todaholiy to gather some interesting details on the culture of henna, and to find a smashing video to share, and I got smacked Holi  style with a desire to return to my Ayurvedic studies in more depth. I have been aware and a drug-store practitioner for probably over 20 years, but in terms of really delving into full practice and doing more study, it’s been  a few years.

Part of my education is in this blog. Yes, Dear Reader, I have lured you into my web of knowledge.  My Mission (working on it “officially”), has always included education in some manner. Before I digress too much, let’s steer back to where this article began, in looking for henna resources, I wanted to include a picture of Holi, a festival I very much hope to be a part of someday.

It is not accidental that most every culture has some sort of Vernal rebirthing celebration. It is in our bones to be drawn to a return of color.

Rebecca Cramer, raised in Oklahoma City, OK, had her first job in design, layout, and printing of concert posters for artists like B.B, King, Bobby Blue Bland, and Wanda Jackson at her family’s offset and lithography business, Colorcraft Poster Company. Her career history includes editing and managing the review process for The American Ornithologists’ Union’s magazine The Auk, as well as teaching English at the secondary and post-secondary levels. In 2008 she completed a Master’s in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) at Oklahoma City University. One constant has been Becca’s love for the arts and her penchant for creating, and she approaches design and construction from an artist's perspective. She has worked such diverse media as silver-smithing, collage, and found-item art. She loves repurposing things others throw away into something useful and beautiful. Early on, Becca displayed a passion for makeup early, when at the age of two she broke into her grandmother’s lipstick stash and applied lipstick to herself, the vanity, and the walls. In June 2012, she moved to Denver to become a makeup artist. Under the name Becca Be, and Fetch, her work has appeared in several fashion publications, including Dark Beauty, Jute, and Kai’outi magazines. She has also worked with designers for Denver Fashion Week, and with ADCD’s Paper Fashion Show (both as artist, and Production Designer).
