Queen Kali Calls Us to Love

Listening to NPR on my car radio, the news of the enormous explosion in Beirut and its aftermath are heartbreaking. But it was the stories of kindness, compassion, and generosity that finally broke the dam of global grief tears in me. Immediately, the Lebanese nearby began to set up online housing sources. Opening their homes, their apartments, to anyone displaced by the devastating explosion. A hotel owner assured potential guests they would be fed as well. This land of Lebanon, with so many years of conflict, war, economic hardship, has a lion’s heart [...]

Singing in Tree

We must come to the end before a new beginning can come to us. —Helene Cixous Sitting in the backyard, I marvel at this unnamed plant, found on the nursery table under a sign: “For Hummingbirds and Bees.” Its narrow, bright-green stem stretches up almost five feet, doing absolutely nothing for the first couple of feet.  Or perhaps pruned by the deer.  Finally, yesterday, at the very top, a thistle.  A round ball maybe two inches across, with spikes sticking out.  On either side of the stem, perfectly symmetrical pairs of toothed leaves [...]

Shooting Star: A Letter to Janet

Dear Janet, Wow!  You’re a grandmother.  No fooling.  I just got a letter from Link with a delightful picture of laughing fellow Emmett James Graham Bertram.  That’s a  solid grounded Midwestern name from your wild girl child, now mother.  Sounds like the beginning of a country song, or long poem.  “Emmett James Graham Bertram set off for the river one day.  Looking for fish,  running from sorrow, hoping his darling would stay.” He looks like Amanda with those fat dimpled cheeks and twinkling eyes.  But blue, not mahogany brown.  Uncle Nick calls him [...]

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language, And next year’s words await another voice.”                    T. S. Eliot Four Quartets This is a critical moment in our history and in the evolution of consciousness for women’s voices to be heard. I think this is going to be a year of power and beauty for the awakening woman, the visionary entrepreneur, the healer, creative, Dreamer; the transformational leader and aspiring leader. 2019 ushers in new beginnings, like every New Year, but this one is especially potent for a fresh start in career and [...]

FINDING SOLID GROUND: THRESHOLD OF TOMORROW

Yesterday, June 30, was another day of Americans taking to the streets to show support for the immigrants detained, the babies in cages, for the protection of families. It was heartening and heartbreaking. "We care!" shouts my five year old grandson, Scout, as we walk. I worry caring will not be enough to shift the cruel course of this Administration. We are on a narrow path. And we must take action together. We stand at the threshold of tomorrow. "I want our voices to emerge with what we know to be true. We [...]

“If there is to be a change, it will come from us. Right here, where we stand. Women were always the story-givers, the memory keepers, the dreamers. Listen now to the land’s long dreaming. Do you see what it is dreaming? It’s dreaming you.” (Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted) https://amzn.to/2GuT3QZ Last week I was shaken, as most probably you were, by the news of yet another school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Heartsick, I questioned whether sending this post with a consultation offer was the right thing to do. [...]

“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.” Rilke “The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.” Isak Dinesen The Pisces new moon of March 17, 2018, is a healing moon, revealing much that needs to be completed and released.This healing and completing new moon closely conjuncts Chiron, the wounded healer, which reveals and heals the [...]

[Art: "Mother of the World" Nicholas Roenich]   “And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”                                                       Rainer Maria Rilke Take off your mask. Come home to yourself.  2018 will be a year of alchemical transformation. It is an 11 universal year in numerology, master number of new beginnings. It is also the vibration of creation and partnerships. Step up. Expand beyond what you thought was possible. There will be increased synchronicities, miracles, the possibility for fulfillment of your destiny. As we move into the Aquarian Age, [...]

The wind is roaring through the trees here in Marin County, the sun alternating between brightness and clouded. It already feels eerie and anticipatory for tomorrow’s cosmic event. It will be a psychic event as well, a time of completions and new beginnings. Imagine what is possible. And I must add, as I sit at Peet's cafe, typing, that "The Age of Aquarius" by the Fifth Dimension is playing. Magic is afoot! The solar eclipse that will happen tomorrow is called the Great American solar eclipse. It is the first total eclipse whose [...]
