For the Divas

Good morning you awesome beings.
Bold and beautiful, you step out into the world, dazzling us all with your special persona. Immaculate, positive, articulate. The world awaits and you boldly venture forth. A new time of man, a new time of woman, a new time of society.
Hail to you, the women of the earth. The long adventure to that special self fulfilment. People are changing, society is changing and your minds and voices are heard. A powerful time, a time of equality and self actualization.
Caution, you dauntless beings, we know your minds. Thinking of men as husbands and brothers has left you unprepared for the unknown man, the untrusted man, the corruption. For women think that men are kind and are left unsuspecting of the ruin of their lives if they’re not. There is still the danger.
How many times have scandals wracked your world. The criminal element, so aggressive, ruthless and persistent. The fallen victims of scams and unknown disputes, the invasion of privacy, the humiliation and despair.
Praises to you, for the continued support, for the strength and clarity of a society worthy of justice, human rights, success, progress and humanity. Praises to you for a culture of creativity, involvement, advancement. The non judgemental and non discriminatory elements of human rights. The pursuits of child care, social programs, legislation and education. Not just for some, but for all women, all races, all nationalities, still working all over the world. The plight of women and children, the constant quest to end the poverty, the violence and the despair. Praises to all of you for the selfless self seeking of world wide peace, an end to war and poverty and to the rights of the individual. The promotion of compassion, humanity and dignity.
Hail to all of mankind for the wisdom of these pursuits.
Now divas, a caution to your own lives. The daily violence is still a part of our struggle. Your belief that men are kind, they are your husbands and your brothers is too naïve. Beware oh beauteous ones. Violence against women is against all women. The scandals are about all of us.
In the history of mankind, any woman, in any society, in any nation, in any era, have been attacked by scandals. All of these assaults are violence against women, against their place in society and against the family.
But you, divas, need to protect yourselves, shun the mean and contemptuous. Don’t fall victim to the scam. Violence against women starts with the scandals. No one is immune.
Take the simple precautions to protect yourselves, we need your strong voices, the compassion, the mutual support. Beauteous divas, protect yourselves.
Lock your car doors at all times, even when you’re inside. Carry your cellphone, fully charged and call someone to talk to as you walk to your car at night. Park your car in well lit areas. Don’t go out alone. Don’t live by yourselves. Having someone at home, expecting your arrival protects you. Don’t overdress. Don’t invite the workplace to your home unless your roommate is present. Don’t assume. Instead of walking alone, those short two blocks home at night, take a cab. Protect yourselves. Lock the doors of your home. Ask for references. Even if the person is a collegue, you should know them before you invite them. Don’t be overly friendly or overly eager. Find people who you trust and who will support you. Keep your social group tight and compatible. Mutual interests and mutual sharing.
Beware of the evils of the world, fine divas. Predators are stealthy. Be alert and be wise.
Those fabulous, kind and compassionate men are your friends and companions. They will help and support you. Just be careful.

Take Flight

Take Flight

Good morning brave hearts.
The cooler fall air reminds the birds of the season of change. They call to each other to gather around. Come near! they sing. They clamour together and fill the trees, calling for each and every one of them to join the flock. It is fall. Time to move south.
The birds natural inclination to move to warmer climates, brings the masses of migrating birds together. The gregarious birds fly together for protection and flight paths. They keep each other in sight, the older ones, showing the way to the younger ones the way, the strong leading the weak. The birds will travel hundreds of kilometers in search of new food sources, shelter, homes and habitats.
The skies fill with the wonder of migration.
The long flight to ponds and forests in far off places. Will they still be there for the birds? Will those protected places that the wildlife need so badly for survival still exist? One more year of environmental protection, one more year of the survival of so many species.
Thousands fly south to warm climates, their small bodies too fragile for cold temperatures and as the leaves turn colour and fall, the protection of the trees vanishes. The winds are strong and the birds take flight to escape.
Will they return?
We protect our own forests for the salvation of the planet, air, weather, for us, for wildlife and for beauty. The forest provides a beautiful backdrop to our lives. The gracious trees, home to many animals, insects and birds provide homes, shelter from the elements, wind, sun and rain and food.
The brave birds fly on a course to the unknown. They will winter wherever they can find food and shelter. Wherever the compassionate human has protected them and the environments that they need for survival. Parklands, forests, back yards with shrubs and trees.
The migration is a marvel of distance and stamina.
How many will come back to us?
The quiet of autumn fills our ears as the chattering birds leave us behind.
The monarch butterflies have already gone on their long flight to Mexico.
http://www.monarch-butterfly.com/
Hibernating animals dig into the earth for their long winters sleep and ponds become quiet.
Trees shed their leaves in preparation for their own winters sleep.
The land is changing. The scattered seeds of summer plants find resting places in the soil. New life for next year.
Prepare for winter, it will come soon.
The peaceful land keeps us busy with fall harvest. Hay for the livestock, fall fruits and vegetables for us. The farmers markets swell with food and our own food baskets are heavy.
The earth saves us once again.

Solstice

Solstice

Hail Brave hearts!

It’s officially fall. The autumn colours of the landscape are changing and a new brilliant hue of colour is upon us. This almighty man, is the land of our forefathers. The land of pristine beauty, of awesome wonder, of dreams fulfilled, of courageous challenge. A land for bold and daring adventure, a life of freedom. A new way, a new path to follow a new quest.
Here, almighty man, is the great land! All of your strength, all of your courage, all of your skills, all of your brilliance and all of your compassion.
Fine negotiator who accepted cultural diversity and multiculturalism as a natural human condition. Fine negotiator, whose attempts to assimilate brought peace and prosperity to the land. Clever peacemaker who spied an opportunity and felt a responsibility to save.
Save us! Called the dying as they slipped away. The path to prosperity was too difficult and too isolated.
Compassionate human, who lived so well, with such apparent ease, with prosperity, luxury and time for leisure pursuits. Art, games, athletics, tests of skills and feats of daring.
This is the new world. Lucky are we to be the fortunate ancestors of accepted mankind in a world so daunting and dangerous.
The pristine wilderness unfolds before us and calls it endless call to follow. Come, great human, into the great wild, whispers the forest, sings the rivers and howls the wind. Experience this peace and hear our song, we sing to you mankind, freedom!
Freedom! It echoed in the ears of our forefathers as they arrived by the boatload to inhabit a land of unknown challenges. A promise of lives fulfilled, dreams come true, plenty for all. The negotiated peace brought with it nation building, agriculture, economics, land, contentment and relaxation. Escape to the new world.
Gone was the overburdening landlord and the endless struggle against taxation. The homesteaders came to farm the land and now there is a harvest. It is fall, the colours are changing, the fruit is ripening, the food is abundant.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homesteading
http://www.motherearthnews.com/homesteading-and-livestock/living-the-good-life-zm0z12aszkon.aspx
Still, in our modern homes, we hear the voices of wisdom persistently nudging us. Move forward, brilliant human, but keep the past with you. Don’t forget your daring ancestors, that brave wilderness birth, the fear, the sorrow, the overwhelming pain. Don’t forget us mankind. Don’t leave the past behind. Remember the great peace that saved us and that is our duty to retain. The great peace, in a world of hardship, with a call to duty to overcome the challenges, inhabit all of the land, build a civilization, farm the land, be the almighty human! No so, bravehearts. Without the great peace, all would be lost.
Now, in this time of joy, when the crops are harvested, food is plenty, the winter is cared for, survival is promised. Now we rejoice in the autumn, with it’s changing colours, it’s cooler temperatures, it’s gifts from the earth.
The animals mate and they too will survive. The great earth, full of miracles, provides again.

Paint your palet

Paint your palet

Still the wild calls us. It’s perfect hues. It calls to our instincts, our passions and our joy.
Here, almighty man, whispers the forest. Come walk my trails, into the secrets of my wooded landscapes. It is autumn and my continually changing attire is now ablaze in fall colour. My own berry harvest is ripe and ready. I fed your ancestors, they walked these trails, full of purpose and determination. Yes, mankind, you will survive. The negotiated peace prevails and you, brilliant one, have achieved your goal.
Your goal to prosperity, to the rugged landscape, to the great wild, to the pursuit of inner peace.
Hail, almighty man, for the great negotiation of a multi culture society.
The great Earth cloaks itself in the unrivalled beauty of its colourful landscape. The changing populations of flowers each with delightful colour and purpose. The early bold display arising from a winters sleep is soon overwhelmed by the spring blooms. Now it is fall, time to put it all away. Time to harvest the crops and to bring the abundance of the land into your home.
The Earth sustains us, as it sustains all of its creatures. The powerful bear, preparing for a long winters nap, will fill itself on the fall berries. Berries for the pregnant mother, berries for the tiny infant to be born next spring. All in a prepared cycle of life and living.
The powerful bear will sleep a blissful winters sleep, away from the curious, the elements and the cold. The wild land will provide a soft, dry den of quiet protection and the mighty bear will drift into a tranquil rest. The earth provided an abundant harvest and the bear will arise with cubs in the spring.
The changing seasons is a changing world for us as well.
The season of the harvest is a time of plenty.
No one is hungry here. No humans, no wildlife, no creatures. The earth provides for what it creates and the wild sustains the wild.
No plunder here. The immense landscape protects a tiny fraction of the populace of wildlife that the earth creates. This small tract of land continually provides for grazing animals, hungry predators and contented birds. The web of life and the interwoven dependence of life is fulfilled in some small, protected lands where encroachment is limited and hunting prohibited. These select few are an example of the biodiversity of the planet. One small area of pristine environmental integrity, set aside for the earth to decide.
In these small areas, the earth chooses the numbers and variety of the species of plant and animal life. Mankind is a visitor to these realms. These realms of abundance, no poverty, no plunder, no starvation here. These are the sanctuaries of the planet, no matter how large, they are too small. Too small for the vast numbers of fishes in the waters, too small for the vast numbers of birds in the sky, too small for the populace herds of ungulates and too small for the density of predators. Here, the earth lives, its populations thrive, it plants its seeds of joy, of regrowth of rebirth.
Almighty human, sighs the earth, I need more.

scent

Good morning Brave hearts.
Welcome to this wonderful day.
The fragrant flowers are turning their nodding, colourful heads into seeds to scatter for next years seedlings. A well planned decision, well timed and well orchestrated. The fall, the harvesting of crops and the harvesting of seeds for next spring. A time to collect the berries, bring in the crops and to celebrate the abundance of the earth.
The obvious is the joy of cooking. New recipes, fresh produce, the taste of newly harvested fruits and vegetables. Your own garden an oasis of earthly delight, filled with the joy of your own labour and love of food. Your garden, be it a patch in your yard, a window box, or a collection of plants on your balcony is ripe and ready .
The seeds that you’re able to harvest from your garden produce will contribute to your plantings next spring. Some will give up hundreds of seeds for you and for sharing. The seeds that you collect this fall will save you the time and expense of purchasing seeds next spring.
Your beautiful fragrant flowers, for perfumes and aromatherapy, will give you hundreds of seeds as well.
Your garden is a treasure.
Properly planted and maintained your garden sustains you with food, scent, decoration, privacy, relaxation and well being. Your garden is your own creation of sustainability and your own access to organic produce. It is your healthy choice to add organic vegetables, herbs, spices and fruit to your daily diet.
The scent of your beautiful flowers takes you into a profession of earthly delight. Perfumes, aromatherapy, massage. Awaken your senses to the fragrance of the planet. The smell of the ocean and the rain, the cut grass, the meadow, the fragrant breezes. For you, almighty human, have it all.

http://www.aromaweb.com/articles/wharoma.asp

The delightful planet provides an array of product in its various scents. Soaps and herbology, the tastes, the smell, the medicine. Your casual plantings are more than food to you. They are also your fragrance, your home remedies and part of your prosperity.
Your conversations turn to earthly delights. Your garden has become a more prominent focus. More than just a pastime or a passing glance, the garden adds more to your life than just an open space. It adds to your nutrients, your cleanliness, your personal fragrance, your well being and your happiness.
Your garden is your meditative retreat, your constant calm, your uninterrupted quiet. The busy insects, pollinating the flowers, taking the last of the sweet nectar for their own food source. The bees and butterflies, so intent and focused. The cross pollinization, from one flower to another will produce fruit from this plant. The essential insect, necessary in this chain of life.
Your garden, a sanctuary for you and for the earth as well.
In the fabric of life that the earth weaves, the garden plays an important role for the lower life forms. Insects abound and with them, comes the birds. A healthy environment in your own yard, producing food for you, the insects, the birds and perhaps some wildlife.
Praises to you almighty man, you have it all.

A path of delight

Good morning Brave hearts.

Hail brilliant mankind.
A lifetime of beauty and serenity awaits you in the grand adventure of the wild. The peaceful quiet, the wonderful aromas, the clean, unpolluted waters, the immense landscape, the fabulous wildlife. The joy of an escape into peace. A timeless oasis of splendor for the senses, an awakening, a rejuvenation, a moment in time where all is well and the good Earth breathes it’s regular breaths and it’s heart pounds with regular beating. Here, the Earth lives!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E40lwh53ec forest tranquility message.

We feel the soft path under our feet, mosses growing in the shaded forest beside. Wild grasses and wild flowers tightly competing for a particle of soil to secure themselves to. The meadows are lush with vegetation. Insects thrive on the nectar and birds thrive on the insects. A perfect environment, a perfect interaction of life and the continuation of living.
Here, in the wilderness, the Earth lives.
Every inch of it’s surface is covered by plants. The seasonal changes of plant life, from a planet so creative, it continually changes it’s cover.
Now, it is fall. The seed pods are a burst of energy for new life. The tiny seed becomes a flower of exquisite colour and beauty. The proud planet, showing off it’s own newborn.
Here the planet chooses for itself. It plants it’s own lush creation of plants, the number and variety. It feeds it’s own creation of insects and wildlife. It chooses it’s own abundance, beauty, colour and scent. Here, in the great wild, where the wind pollinates the plants and rain nurtures the ground, is where the planet shows us her finest designs.
A tangle of forest, a carpet of meadow, every colour of green imaginable. Here, where the ponds match the colour of the sky, where every plant species is a different colour of green. Even in the fall, when the early frost changes the colour of the leaves, this is not a dying world. This is the time of rejuvenation. In this time of quiet, the animals will mate, the flowers will sow their seeds, the migrating birds will fly and the land prepares for a restful winters sleep. The Earth too, needs it’s time of restful calm.
The joy of an unhurried escape along a path of simple pleasure. A day of acquaintance with nature and its wonderful ways. Simple, gentle breezes wafting pleasant smells of plants so fragrant. The sounds of calling birds and the cascading waters of small waterfalls reminding us that we have nourishment here.
The discovery of a path of luxury. The luxury to have unspoilt lands, unpolluted waters, clean, fresh air. The luxury to protect, to conserve, to walk the great wild.
Here, we don’t plunder. Here we save.
The Earth smiles at us and presents her glory.
Brilliant mankind, come to the great wild. Let the fabulous good Earth nurture your soul and sing it’s songs of gladness to you.
Peace to you, brave hearts, nurture and care.

Come with me

Come with me

Into the great wild.
Into an adventure of peaceful delight, where the gentle breezes warm your body and the sun filled meadows delight your senses. The playful butterfly drinking the last of the seasons nectar and the grasshoppers leaping in the tall grasses. The wild life leave only footprints to indicate their presence, the occasional scat of wolves and bear indicate a balance of life and the songs of birds, hawks and ducks fill the air with their calls. The berries are abundant, there are several signs of bears.
The great wild.
As usual, the wildlife are elusive and although our presence is known to them, they hide from us. We, like them, will leave only footprints. We, like them, will pass through the meadows disturbing as little as possible.
Lucky are we, to have the great wild.

Lucky are we to be the only humans in this vast landscape. A retreat for us. A welcome change in the daily routine. A back country trip of awesome wonder, fabulous scenery, a remote distance, a genuine pleasure.
Here, the mountain steams provide necessary water. Clear, clean water. We fill our cups to drink. The great Earth provides unpolluted water from numerous streams as we pass by. The great Earth provides and we, oh great human, have the great good fortune to inherit such wonder.
The protection of vast tracts of land for preservation, conservation and environmental security is a necessary gift to us.
The wildlife need their uninterrupted peace where the daily drama of their own lives can be fulfilled. We too, need uninterrupted peace, where our own minds rest and relax. We need the great wild. The calling birds, the swaying, dance of flowers, the brilliant colour, the songs of animals.
On these glorious fall days, the land was gentle to us. The sun warmed us and the streams cooled us. We could drink from the unpolluted waters of the Earth. In two glorious days, a lifetime passed. Gone were the worries of the world, the distant workplace vanished from the conscious mind into a void. No more thoughts of daily disturbances, no more the sounds of traffic. The silence greets us with restful, deep sleep and the meditative calm of nature soothes the soul.
Here, mankind, sighs the great Earth. This is a gift to you. Protect as much as you can. The great wild is a precious and fragile gift, it restores your soul, it sings to your heart and it relaxes your mind. There is no war in the great wild. There is only the daily interaction of nature as it plays out its own life. The nurturing wild. It calls us to protect it. Save us mankind. Save yourselves. Here is the land of plenty.

The smells of juniper are strong and pleasing. The grasses smell sweet as we pass through them. The end of season flowers nod and wave. The sweet serenity of the far off place. The wild. So rich for us, a near at hand wonder of the great creation of the Earth.
