The Essence of Laurel came to life when Laurel D. Rund went through a personal metamorphosis. After experiencing the loss of her spouse in 2009, Laurel serendipitously discovered her creative talents in a new season of her life.
Woman in the Wind – It is written in stone!
I have encountered many storms and rainbows during this journey called Life.
Breathing in new thoughts and perspectives, I have unearthed more about the spirit within me and bless the earthly form I was born into decades ago.
Time has gifted me with many challenging and exquisite moments
which are woven into the tapestry of my Being.
I now honor and embrace that which is my sacred soul,
and love its eternal spirit - my Essence.
Free to spread my wings and fly, I Am a Woman in the Wind!
And SO IT IS written in stone.
Laurel D. Rund
