The moon is again waxing. I haven’t yet seen her reappearance, but I know she will be hanging there near the western horizon, a little after dark tonight, a breathtaking slice of light which will soon disappear.
The first time I remember being really aware of the moon, I… Read full post »
That night in bed, Cecil said, "I'm forwarding you an email from Edwin. He wants me to write my recollections of the night we were overrun by the NVA. That was Doc's first night out in country and he responded to Edwin, so I'll call him too. Edwin is filing… Read full post »
Kathryn looked at the day’s reading. A split in the path. A day to choose which way to go. Well, she was pretty committed in all the directions she was headed.
Jake was headed out the door. “Look out for splits in the path," she called. "Any decision might be life… Read full post »
What I Learned Last Year
I learned about letting go, actually getting rid of twenty years of clutter. After 35 years of bad house keeping, I am learning the simple secret of continuous small tidying with large blasts every once in a while.
I learned about pulses from… Read full post »
Today is 1 Etznab. This means for thirteen days, each day is influenced by the energy and concepts associated with this day sign.
Indigenous people of Central America in times past and now were concerned in knowing who they truly were. Their birth days helped define how the… Read full post »
It's cloudy in these parts. I went out early, in the black before the dawn, but the tiny of slivers of the moon were not visible in the east. Instead a mist hung in the air, damp all around. It's been like this the last three mornings.
I will find… Read full post »
Michele looked down on her daughter, Laura who was sprawled on her bed, saying nothing with a single tear tracking down her stubborn face.
"Seize the sunlight. There are only a few hours a day. Seek it, turn your face into it and absorb the light. Vitamin D, you… Read full post »
I decided to take the same challenge as Zanelle using these four words: bird(s), weather, dinner, askance. It took me all day before anything entered my mind and this is what I came up with, for better… Read full post »
Last year a Fox News reporter ignited a controversy when she declared Santa Claus is white. Shortly after that, on another writing site, I wrote a piece for an exercise "Making Myth Your Muse" which made use of Megyn Kelly's unfortunate characterization of Santa Claus. Without further ado, I am repos… Read full post »
I have struck all kinds of poses on Veterans Day thru the years I’ve been married to CC. I’ve been the good wife, trailing behind him to overly nationalistic and hawkish affairs, I’ve been the journalist and the blogger, always the hippie to his hero.

Almost two years ago at my church's annual solstice service, I was asked to deliver the message. Since my last post generated a lot of interest about my daykeeping activities, I decided to post what I wrote for the December 21, 2012 service. Without further ado....
Welcome to my church this… Read full post »
This is a reference guide to the basic story I tell myself everyday using the 20 Mayan Day signs. My associations with the days signs comes from studying a wide variety of Mayan scholars' and thinker’s interpretations. Onto this, each day I create my own cognitive connections base… Read full post »
"Seek water” was the assignment emanating from the sacred Mayan calendar today. I put my kayak on my truck and tied it down. This is a very empowering deed for a woman in her late fifties to heft a 14 foot kayak on her truck, tie it securely and… Read full post »
At the Ocmulgee Indian Festival, I brought out my old Cannon carmera that I gave up when the iPhone cameras started packing as many megapixels as the Cannon. Now I have quit carrying my iPhone, my 16 year old child has taken it over. I am learning to walk away… Read full post »
Oh my Goddess, how blandly we talk of killing more people and
how southerners are sick in the head and depraved.

Life and Death. Choices.
I believe a person has the right to take their own life. Last night we had company when we heard of Robins Williams' death by suicide. A man I admire very much seemed to think suicide is never the right decision because of the people who… Read full post »
I am a vessel of thoughts and feelings which must be siphoned off at regular intervals. These thoughts and feelings come in torrents, currents of life passing through me. I want all of these currents of life to be assimilated into my version of reality. I want it all to… Read full post »
He changed her operating system,
Taking Joy, Leaving Guilt;
Building and Dwelling there.
He was a snake handler.
