THE NEW YEAR’S BABY

She’d sworn and been darned if she would spend another year after this one,
trying to get a New Year’s Baby ready to face the world. This one had to
have been the most difficult of all the years ever! It was as if it had an
internal computer inside it, set on FAST SPEED and never allowed to turn off.
“Mercy, Lord, and why me?” It was ever so much easier, she thought. In the
very old days, all she’d had to do…Continue
At Christmas time and during the holidays, there is a lot of talk about family. But what is family? This can be a sad time of year for some people and thinking outside the box may help. Do people need to be related by blood to be family? I have two 'daughters' not related by blood but they've been friends with my other daughters for 7 years or more. (I even gave a birthday present this year to one of these girls "from your other mom".) I also have a church family, some of whom have…Continue

Bear, you and I are related, Creator has made it so
I have come here to honor you, and the medicine you freely show
Once, your Grizzly cousins were plentiful in this state
They roamed and ate in peace, not knowing of their fate
Man has killed them all, and now only you remain
Cities and streets have covered what was once your domain
Still, you struggle for life in the best way you can
While man continues to…

Strange as it might seem, and unusual as it was, snow fell softly upon the ocean of the sleepy little town. Its fingers of water were weary. A long day had passed. None the less, it reached up grabbing the tiny flakes, pulling them down and further cooling the vastness of its watery domain. Upon the sidewalks, the snow slowly collected building up layer upon layer, making itself a lovely thing to look upon. Few would likely know at this…Continue

For many of us life has changed
Losing our Mates, Children, Family Members, Friends

In just 2 days will mark my beautiful daughter's 13th Angelversary! As each year pass, my heart and soul becomes lighter and lighter. Lily is still here with me in spirit. Memories of her showing me that she is still here starts to flood my mind:
*My friend "I" and myself were walking across the field going to our once-a-month friend lunch date. We had looked around the field and it was covered with feathers of all sorts of colors! She helped me filled my backpack with these feathers!…
The events of yesterday in California are sad indeed. Humanity has drifted away from the balance of life with the natural world like a boat tied to a pier which has become loose. It does not float away quickly but rather slowly until it becomes out of reach.
The vibration of anger that abounds around the world of humanity is absorbed by our Earth Mother, the Tree People, Rock People and all our relations and each becomes sick.
The word vibrations we cast upon the Wind Spirits will…
