Flower Child

I often compare surfing the web to exploring outer space, there are so many unknown gems that are  waiting to be discovered. Today I was blessed to run across a very talented artist/poet Hippie Snook who has released a project called “#teddybearinhandcuffs: Relapse”. This free spirited flower girl creates her own universe with positive energies and enlightening lyrics. Using her voice as a weapon to speak on social injustices of today, as well as providing a different perspective of life.
