as it is to re-write the writer.”

planning, loving, cautioning,
backing and filling, 
appearing and disappearing,
I tread day and night such roads.”

My favorite New Year's message from Francesca Biller, via Elephant Journal

"So here I am, leaning back into the worn fabric of her favorite chair, gleaming upon her memories of 100 years when she only looked forward and never back.

Though she is no longer with us in the physical sense, with her scented lavender hair and soft lilting voice, her presence is everlasting, especially as the year comes to a close and another unsung year awaits us.

In her spirit, I have written the words that spring eternal from her soul, just for you and for me. You see, I know her steady hands, her flirtatious gaze and how she might have told us all how to mine silent and brave along the core.

I can still feel the energy of her childhood, when she traveled towards the West and past the Dust Bowl to engage a better life, and so that I may be born one day and write this very passage, all spent and flushed with the youth of remembrance.

Right about now, she might say…

Forgive yourself for this year, for all of your transgressions and seeming failures. Because you are alive, they are all miracles for you.

Part of you is better for it, and “all of you” is lovelier still, even for what you “thought” you failed…even for those you felt you assailed…

These experiences have made you more whole, and not less, as you wonder endlessly about who you are.

Because ‘Who You Are’ is miraculous, especially the adventuresome wanderer who gets caught in the fray, feeling lost and forbidden and alone.

You are still here, another year older, another moment more beautiful and aged, and yet more youthful than ever before.

This year you also sailed brilliantly along the curves, don’t you recall?

You sang songs you did not even know upon life’s wandering voyage, and the intricate memories of a life well traveled. You were brilliant not only once or twice, but many more.

Be still instead, in this wintry glow that subsides, if only for a moment now.

No resolutions should bask, for a life bursting with more life, for a world of bewilderment and moments left unsaid and more cherished, your time is all worth knowing.

For all of the years forward, live them wildly.

Oh passion-filled days, all steadfast and young, know that the next year will surpass all others, because it is new, and because it will be filled with moments that will remain unspoken of harsh and light, right along with your steady heart.

The month before she passed away, my grandmother began to greet me at each visit at her round windswept door with photos, newspaper clippings and stories she had handwritten about our family’s enchanted and stormy history.

"In her hands she clutched yellowed anthologies, diary entries and stories about her own parents who fought the battles of weary struggles, so that we could all live a brighter day and sleep through hundreds of new years without peril or strife.

I am looking at the pile of papers right now, as my grandmother sits slightly near in memory and hope, with a gleam of gentle in her pose, and I am grateful to her for all of the wisdom of forbearance and idealism she inspired in me, in my children and for generations to come.
We can give ourselves a gift this year: to live the life of wonder.

Stare silently into the sky and wish for nothing but everything imaginable, everything we could not possibly imagine or see.

Forgive wishes and proclamations of this past year and may you want only to bask in the glow of “not knowing.”

And in the sheer madness of all that is both impossible and possible—because we are willing to close our eyes in abandonment and joy, if only for a sunrise or sunset of innocence and breadth.

When we allow ourselves the sweetness of now, we may have all of the adventures that life has to offer in the coming year."

Morning Quotes 12/26/17

“Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning
but a going on, with all the wisdom
that experience can instill in us.”
    ~ Hal Borland


May your coming year be filled with
magic and good dreams and madness.
Create something, sing, dance,
and live as only you can. And I hope
somewhere in the next year,
you surprise yourself.

    ~adapted, Neil Gaiman

why do we have to wait 
for Christmas to do that?"

Morning Quotes 12/18/17

“I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, 
the being sure but not too sure, 
the willingness to surrender ideas 
when the evidence is against them: 
this is ultimately fine—it always 
keeps the way beyond open—always 
gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, 
a chance to try over again 
after a mistake—after a wrong guess.”
     ~ Walt Whitman

“I discover myself on the 
verge of a usual mistake.”
     ~ Walt Whitman

Morning Quotes 12/13/17

“Truth is not a reward for good behavior,

You need not merit truth.
It is your own....Stand still, be quiet.”

Man is wise and constantly 
in quest of more wisdom;

same time the one which calls 
faith rather than reason.

Buckle up! Today is a Supermoon and the start of Mercury Retrograde!


Mercury Retrograde combines with a Supermoon for a huge energy shift! This full moon will take place in Gemini, causing a lot of tumult within us all. 

The energy onslaught that is expected is supposed to be immense and so it is advised to be prepared accordingly. Take extra care of your relationships as this is very fragile time. 

The best advice is to keep your head low and let things take their course. Though you will feel a lot of energetic push and pull forced upon you, if you manage not to let it overpower you, you will be fine.

Saturday Musings

“As I stood in contemplation of the garden of the wonders of space," Milosz writes, "I had the feeling that I was looking into the ultimate depths, the most secret regions of my own being; and I smiled, because it had never occurred to me that I could be so pure, so great, so fair! My heart burst into singing with the song of grace of the universe. All these constellations are yours, they exist in you; outside your love they have no reality! How terrible the world seems to those who do not know themselves! When you felt so alone and abandoned in the presence of the sea, imagine what solitude the waters must have felt in the night, or the night's own solitude in a universe without end!" And the poet continues this love duet between dreamer and world, making man and the world into two wedded creatures that are paradoxically united in the dialogue of their solitude.”
― Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

Saturday morning vibes...

“If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house,

Morning Quotes 11/27/18

"We can depend on the world being a
perpetual surprise in perpetual motion."
     ~ Stephen Nachmanovitch

"If we know that the inevitable setbacks
and frustrations are phases of the
natural cycle of creative processes,
if we know that our obstacles can become
our ornaments, we can persevere and bring
our desires to fruition. Such perseverance
can be a real test, but there are ways through,
there are guideposts. And the struggle,
which is guaranteed to take a lifetime,
is worth it. It is a struggle that generates
incredible pleasure and joy. Every attempt
we make is imperfect; yet each one of those
imperfect attempts is an occasion for
a delight unlike anything else on Earth."
     ~ Stephen Nachmanovitch

"When we are totally faithful
to our own individuality,
we are actually following
a very intricate design."
     ~ Stephen Nachmanovitch

Morning Quotes 11/23/17 Happy Thanksgiving!

“We have a choice about where 
to aim the lens of our attention. 
We can relive past injustices, 
settle old grudges and nurse festering sores. 
We can imagine failure, build up its potential 
for destruction, calculate its odds. 
Or, we can imagine the generous outcomes 
we're working on, feel gratitude for those that 
got us here and revel in the possibilities 
of what's next.”

The energy of our thoughts and feelings
are the attracting mechanisms 
of our experiences.

Let me introduce you to the SUPER HERB, COMFREY!

I have placed  a link at the end of this paragraph, because after you read the two articles I have linked below, you will most definitely be ordering the tea, so I am putting the amazon link here, so you can order :) Some of you will most likely be growing it as well.   Comfrey Leaf Tea

Article One - Move over superman. Can the herb, Comfrey save the world? (Try not to let the few, poor, areas of grammar in this article dissuade you from it's important message.)

Article Two - Chemical Constituents of Comfrey  - This was written by the master herbalist whose advise has helped to cure numerous health issues in my family.

“We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.“ ~ Bill Hicks

Everything that happens was first imagined. Our imaginations are powerful creators. Our thoughts are not private. They project on the world.

Science has determined that the world is a projection of our minds and each of us live in our own individual worlds. We project our beliefs on the world and it returns to us our experience.

When we allow what we see to create our beliefs, we thrive in good times, but suffer in bad times. If we focus on the bad our imaginations run wild with bad things, our belief system creates expectations of bad, and the world responds. If we focus on the good, and discipline our imaginations to envision good experiences, our belief system creates expectations of good and the world responds.

Morning Quotes... 10/13/17

When we are put in charge
we are not given a crown, 
we are given the responsibility 
to bring out the best in others.
      ~adapted, Jack Welch

“Look, winning and losing can’t be quantified. 
They are states of mind, and losing 
happens only when you give up. 
Seen that way, then, the world can be filled 
with winners, and there is room for them all.”
     ~ Jack Welch

Morning Quotes 10/13/17

“So I should be aware of the dangers 
of self-consciousness, but at the same time, 
I’ll be plowing through the fog of all these echoes, 
plowing through mixed metaphors, noise, 
and will try to show the core, which is still there, 
as a core, and is valid, despite the fog. 
The core is the core is the core. 
There is always the core, 
that can’t be articulated.
Only caricatured.”
     ~ Dave Eggers

We must trust, and we must have faith. 
And so we build, because what is building, 
and rebuilding and rebuilding again, 
but an act of faith?”
     ~adapted, Dave Eggers

Morning Quotes 10/11/17

“And there is a chance that 
everything we did was incorrect, 
but stasis is itself criminal for those 
with the means to move, and the means 
to weave communion between people.”
     ~ Dave Eggers 

“We have advantages. 
We have a cushion to fall back on. 
This is abundance. A luxury of place and time. 
Something rare and wonderful. 
It's almost historically unprecedented. 
We must do extraordinary things. 
We have to. It would be absurd not to.”
     ~ Dave Eggers
