The Vast and Beautiful World of Indigenous Europe

This was too beautiful and touched me too deeply to pass, if each human being, no matter their “race” would not only read but feel into this and realize what we actually are…

“Our task is to honor our ancestors, even those who caved beneath the weight of systematic destruction and became conquerors themselves. Our task is to remember that we are those beautiful Earth People. The ones whose love and prayers were so strong that they could carry 25-ton blue stone monoliths for miles and miles and build the sacred place of prayer known as Stonehenge. That is who we are. When we remember this, the healing of our lineages comes full circle. When we remember this, we will no longer need to borrow spiritual practices from other cultures (although that can be very helpful when there is nothing else to hold onto.) When we remember this, we will remember that the fates of all beings are intertwined with our own. When I remembered this, I found whole-ness in my self—no longer a half-breed, but a daughter of Two Great Lineages, Two Great Rivers that ran together to make one precious child.”

BAU, Site C & Blade Runner 2049

“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the … Continue reading BAU, Site C & Blade Runner 2049

Late January Updates

“The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of … Continue reading Late January Updates

Transition: On Letting Go & Wetiko

“If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down.” ~Toni Morrison “The dissolution of wetiko will be as much about remembering as it will be about creation.” ~ Alnoor Ladha, Martin Kirk “In our time of disturbance and radical change, we are crossing a threshold, a portal, or an unseen bridge from one world to … Continue reading Transition: On Letting Go & Wetiko
