Flexing Muscles

Most of us realize that mother nature and father sky are flexing there muscles right now. They are giving us fair warning that if we don't shape up they will kick our asses! Well maybe I should have said "butt" but I am taking poetic license. I for one don't want to tangle with Mother Nature. As humans we may have the allusion that we are tougher and smarter than most... just turn up the air conditioning. Just call FEMA (good luck). Get better insurance or just dig a whole on the sand and stick your head in it, of course now you may pull your head out covered in oil. But whatever we will find a way to wash the oil off....Really!! Wake up and smell the pollution... um lovely! For at least 50 years environmentalist have been shouting out to deaf ears and so now Mother Nature has taken up the call. Some people are actually listening now. Walk softly on the earth. Each one of us doing just a little may keep us out of the fight. Give your life a little purpose friends.. like maybe saving the planet. Recycling may not seem like Star Wars... but just pretend you are a Jedi fighter on your way to the Planet Recycle to save our planet from total annihilation. Turn off a light bulb. Walk instead of drive or ride a bike. Use Less Stuff.... it is not that difficult. Be smart and know that Mother Nature can and will kick our @#$%^# if we don't back off!!

I loved Ireland..the people...the green...the spirit.
Wonderful and I will return to the Emerald Isle.
But one draw back, it was just too cold for me. I like the heat but to tell you the truth right now Arkansas is just to hot for me. I am looking for something "just right". While I am in Ireland I am dreaming of hot summer days at home and now I am at home thinking of cool Irish weather.
We humans are just crazy..... but in an ok way.
We always think something else is better or something is waiting for us around the bend. Not true. Hey Goldilocks this is it!

This morning I received a prayer request for a 20 year old woman diagnosed with a rare cancer. As I read her story I was overwhelmed with questions. Seems she has already lost her baby, who was delivered early because of the tumor. Wow this life can be dark and scary. I know everyone asks the questions.......why the pain and loss in this life. I certainly don't have the answer. As I think about this young woman, she represents the loss that so many people experience on a daily basis. I will pray for her of course and hope for a miracle in her life. Because we never know tomorrow and we don't really understand yesterday, it is important to take time and care with people. Life is fragile and a small kindness can go along way. You never know when a smile, a prayer, an encouraging word will be the las tone someone experiences. I know that this world is a lovely and beautiful place... but not all the time and not for some. Walk softly today in gratitude and put as much light in the world as you can.... it is important

I am not one for surprises, I like to know what is happening. I hate waiting to open a gift, I have to see what is inside. Not a great trait. Hurry, hurry, hurry is my personality. Wait, wait, wait is wisdom. So you can see my dilemma. Fortunately the Great Mystery has patience and is willing to wait. These Dolmen's in Ireland, 5000 years old. Ok...so let me figure this one out?! Guess what... I can't and you can't, we have to accept Mystery. Faith is the substance of things not seen.
Substance is real. Mystery is real. God is real. Whatever power our great great great great great... you get the point..grandparents possessed, we don't have it today. We can barely wait for a traffic light. We want our food and our religion fast and with no hidden ingredients. We want to know and be known (I mean facebook is proof of that). No mystery, no unanswered question for us smart, evolved folks. Well in spite of all our technology and oil spills, they do go hand in hand you know, we still could use a book "mystery for dummys" .... so quick somebody write one and then we will all still be dummys with a new book. I actually find peace and comfort in not knowing how these fabulous Dolmens came to be...but that doesn't mean I am not gonna rip into a wrapped present when I get one........ "why" you ask..."It's a mystery to me", I reply.

creating a memory

One morning while visiting Ireland I wanted to create a late morning snack. I wanted to use this very cool rocks table cloth and create a memory. I looked around at all the left overs we had in the kitchen and I pulled them all together to create a quite scruptious meal. I did this a few times with making some cakes also, that if I must say so myself were quite awesome. It is my art to take what I find around me and put it together to create a memory. This is how I feel about the music we create at Circle Studios Records and the healing retreats we offer. I take a little of this and a little of that and with intention and prayer and some faith watch what happens. I am usually very pleased and very surprised at the outcome. Life has always been that way for me, not too scientific, much more artistic and magical. So though it may seem like a small thing this little table of love prepared for those I love, it is just these simple pleasures that really count in life. I hope you have a whole bunch of them!

champion moments

I went to Ireland and found my 'muchness'. It was not necessarily easy. I had to overcome many fears and doubts and misgivings to stand at this place and breathe in pure peace. I will probably drive you crazy with my Irish Blogs, but the country of sacred spaces and holy faces has captured my heart and I am not looking to escape too soon. Each of us has our awakenings and usually many throughout our lives and many throughout each day. This photo is reminiscent of one of mine. The yellow flowers dance in the field in constant praise and gratitude. The mighty ocean sings its strong gentle song.
The cloud studded painted sky brings promise and change. The boats that pass by in the distance, as well as the soaring seagulls, beckon me to a deeper faith and remind me that, like them, I am on a journey that matters.

all is well

Ok folks... all is well in my world. Beautiful morning, coffee on the deck overlooking the amazing fog in the valley. My redtailed hawk friend came for a short visit while I ate peanut butter on cinnamon toast and bananas. It was quiet and beautiful and I made sure not to Think! Some times life just gets crazy and the laundry, bills, to do list, housework, responsibilties just pile up. Those are the little irritations that can break the thread we are hanging on to.
The real meaningful things that I wrote about in my blog the other day are real... children that need parents to be adults, oil spills, religious zealots and on and on. I make no apologies for my rant about those things. Those are the injustice fires within me that keep my sparkler going to try to make this world a better place. If my place, my personal space is not a quiet still burner, I won't have much affect on the rest. So today before my coffee my laundry got started and my dishes done... shucks no fun. But that is true power to find grace and peace in the little irritations and to put all of lifes work and play into balance. But please don't look at my desk ( if you can find it). I will save that mess for when I reach true enlightenment. I am trying to resist the temptation, but I think I am heading for a second cup of Joe. Love you All!! later

need coffee

I have been thinking....MISTAKE!! and I have a few questions, bitches and bewilderments.
So for today my commitment to the positive blog is void. So warning stop here..bleep..bleep
ok you had your chance.
First of all I do not understand how someone can choose drugs over children? How do you leave beautiful trusting souls who depend and admire you no matter what to getting high.... it is like choosing to eat dog shit instead of fillet mignon. What is up with that.. dope?
Second what is spiritual or loving about forcing people or expecting people to believe the way you do? To the point of killing innocent people with an airplane or damning people to hell because they don't see things your way? don't get it.
Third If there is so much damn oil running into the sea killing our environment and wildlife, why are we over in other countries at war trying to defend our oil interest? maybe I am just stupid..cause I just don't get these things.
Also for you folks that don't believe in global warming... turn off your air conditioners for a couple of days.... and have you noticed the rain and the flooding... I am not a scientist or anything but where does all that water from the snowcaps which are disappearing, melting... (too warm I suppose.. isn't that what melts things??) ...go? Just wondering as the creek rises.
ok there is more but I will spare you... cause I am hungry and haven't had my coffee yet... maybe that is the source of my negativity..... no Pollyanna closing..........life sucks
