When I am thirsty and no amount of water will fill me, this is where I turn.  This is my tribe, my clan.  These are my women.  My sisters.  My well.  Thank God, every moment, that they are breathing and dreaming on this beautiful spinning planet.  With them "I have a meat ye know not of".

A kiss blown to my beloved, sister-wife-forever love-friend-kin, whose heart beats with my own, as my expressing in infinite form... forever whole.


beauty on Vancouver Island

I have been in Canada for quite a while, enjoying the beauty of my sweet sister, China, and the landscape  she inhabits.  Here is a window into our time:  Trips to the beach with our two wildly wonderful children, Bodhi and Mina.  Walks to the beach without our two wildly wonderful children.  Days spent reveling in beauty more abundant than I had cause to dream.  Walks alone on moody mornings, breathing in the salty spray from a thousand miles of distant ocean.  Long treks and short rambles through the forests in Metchosin  Falling deeply and passionately in love with arbutus trees.  Deer so close you could touch them if you were patient enough, we weren't (well more specifically Bodhi and Mina weren't).  Waterfalls  Lakes  Fires on the beach...  Happiness picking veggies in the greenhouse to be humbly transformed into culinary masterpieces in the kitchen by sisters joyously working side by side.  Views so astounding that breathing is nearly

The demon was trying to keep all the being of creation from connecting with Great Spirit. He wanted all of Great Spirit's creatures to feel that Great Spirit did not want to be disturbed.

Any normal creature would have fled or died on the spot from fright. Fawn, however, said gently to the demon, "Please let me pass. I am on the way to see Great Spirit." Fawn's eyes were filled with love and compassion for this oversized bully of a demon.
