Sail Away 🚤 – Gemp Submissions Boats & Ships

by | Feb 14, 2022 | GEMP | 0 comments

boats & ships ⛵️

When we’re little, we play with boats and ships. Some of us use them daily to get to school or work, or some of us might even work on a ship or need a boat to do their job. Other people build and fix boats.

Style, form and tradition around boats vary greatly, yet they all move us from A to B and keep us over water.

In ancient as well as modern times, they move us and the goods we require. A lot of things would not be possible without them.

And they can be extremely beautiful and elegant, or a big threat to our environment.

What is your relationship to ships or boats? Do they make you think of vacations or every day life? Do they play an important symbolic or traditional role in your life/family/community/region? Do you just like to look at them, or do you have to deal with the pollution some of them cause?

These are your submissions:

I imagine us sailing
The boat blends with the sea
The vessel dissolves and then
The vessel is us
We carry ourselves and each other
Under us the organisms play
Are born and die and regenerate and mutate
We do this as well
A cloud above opens itself to us
It takes us in
And pours us out
It whispers thunder
It strikes nearby and illuminates our bones
We grow exoskeletons
We grow fins and tails
We descend and submerge
play breathe merge

Moon in house
I moved the moon into my old house last night
The people are there, glistening bare backs steeped in strange sounds
with boxes of antiques pulled out of place
from the ships that the residents of the locket
had committed to, moving boxes along the pier
spices scattered in their pigtails
The moon has seen everything, can teach you
return to the moon in the house
miss the people who have sailed, out
found livelier planets, leave behind newcomers
Up on the moor, Chang’er wishes the visionaries would learn again
all the ways she laughs too, would caress
more than the runaways at the subway

Meredith Bass “Waves” 2021

Crashing down
Carrying me into dark places
Places that should only be felt in passing
A moment
Not a destination
Unable to gasp for breath
Feeling and moving
The current pushes and pulls
Once again
Time and time again
Feel the waves crashing
Don’t let it keep you down
Sway with the current
Using your weakness as a tool
Sharpen your axe
Don’t get lost in the waves

My name is Meredith Bass, I’m an artist and I love to express my emotions through my work. When I feel waves of sadness, I draw it out or write about it. Instead of hurting someone with my words or actions, I choose to create art from my pain or joy.

Shopping consciously is easy now.

Our world needs you.
In your full power.

Start exploring new ways to be in this world.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the I AM CREATOR School as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.

Ask yourself:

Am I ready to explore what else is possible for me? Am I curious to learn more about myself and my powers?

To start raising your consciousness, guided by me and together with other like-minded explorers.


Who you were always meant to be. And start living a generous, free and abundant and joyful life.
