Handle Only With Love
Coined abbreviation and term, H.O.W.L. (Handle Only With Love) originally created by Tini Courtney. Now turning into a collective lifestyle and theory starting to reach the masses. Striving to share the message with the world. Always being captivated by wolves and the sound of howls the mysterious song found their souls as it reminded and reconnected them to the wondrous aspects of nature that some may have forgotten about. Lois Crisler has said, “Like a community sing, a howl is a happy occasion. Wolves love to howl. When it is started, they instantly seek contact with one another, troop together, fur to fur. Some wolves will run from any distance, panting and bright-eyed, to join in, uttering, as they near, fervent little wows, jaws wide, hardly able to wait to sing.” The words couldn’t better describe what she wants to accomplish in her own way. Thanks to an abundance of love, hard work and undoubtable dedication to their study here is the message.
The philosophy of Handle Only With Love revolves around the connection between every living thing that exists here on Earth. A network of energy that links all creatures together. Forces that could potentially save and illuminate the love in this world by helping people become more aware of its reality. By creating all kinds of art she relays this message by establishing a global connection. Bringing together pieces from all over the world to manifest one of her works. Meaning every little iota in each work has a unique energy from whomever hands it touched and its origin. Connecting him or her to the vast array of people who have touched and blessed each individual part.
Living for the inspiration that consumes her by learning about the Earth, different cultures, and anything with a story behind it. Vintage or still in the wrapper, everything collected is of importance because of the unique energy it has been given. She is grateful for everything in life and is eager to explore the idea that we as living creatures here on Earth are all connected.
