I suspect this child speaks for many of us. Such grace in one so young. I hope she becomes president someday: http://current.com/items/90981878_the-girl-who-silenced-the-world-for-5-minutes.htm
Leaves are falling now in a deluge. In the windless days, they dip down like feathers shaken off from some great, molting firebird. The forest floor is a fantastical mosaic of flame colors as autumn burns away the greens of summer in an inferno of golden, red, and orange. I’ve been wondering whether I could gather the leaves inside and decoupage them onto my kitchen counter, and marvel at them each day, all year long. Read the rest of this entry »
My good friend Genviev had a great idea the other day, so I’m passing it on to you for your input. This may be a way for all of us to participate in generating more income in these challenging times. See what you think!
The Spirit Wolf Press Proposition
In light of the financial and economic difficulties so many of us have
been facing lately, Susan and I have been discussing the idea of
offering each interested member of the community gathered on her
site the possibility of becoming an official distributor of our Spirit Wolf
Distributors would be able to generate high profit margins on every
card they sell. This system would allow those interested to distribute
the collections directly in their area and generate profit margins
equaling those traditionally allocated to commercial distributors. Our
intention is to enable each of us to regain control over our individual
financial stability, while reaching for our dreams, supporting each
other by sharing the fruits of our labor and working together to
promote the respect and protection of animal spirits and their sacred
habitats. Read the rest of this entry »
Carter has an unusual way of expressing himself, which I find delightful and provokative. He is a quiet man who thinks a lot. I was telling him pretty much what I posted to all of you last time in my autumn reflection. He wandered downstairs to his computer, and wrote this for me, and I liked it and thought I would share it with you. So, here it is, unedited: Carter speaks!
“Patience. The idea arose in our morning conversation today. Waiting, I think is another word for it. Word’s thesaurus gives “endurance, staying power, tolerance, lack of complaint, persistence, fortitude, serenity” as alternative words. But none of them capture, for me, the feeling of patience. But, I think tolerant, serene persistence does. Carlos Castaneda’s Juan Metus had much to say about waiting and patience. For don Juan the key was impeccable intent. Impeccability and intent were prevalent in all of his teachings the core of which is “Personal Power”. Read the rest of this entry »
Last night, I took a flashlight out to the pond and gazed into the waters and around the limestone borders. Thanks to our nifty filter, the water is as clear as chardonnay. Two sets of eyes shone in the night: my larger frogs, Green Lips and Green Head (original names, huh?) lurked beneath the overhanging stone shelves, eager for some bugs to come their way.
In this colder weather, the bugs are increasingly scarce—good for me, bad for the frogs. I have been wanting to write about the glory of this new, fresh, fall season for weeks now. I think it was back in early September that I got my first whiff of the season, blown in from somewhere, that fleeting tang in the air that smells like a fermentation of all that was summer.
