Korean Poetry and Images   11 y  
Stunning photographs accompany Korean poetry by leading poet Koh Jung-hee (translated to English).
Photographed by J.P. Song For the Bruised Souls by Koh Jung-hee Translated by Chae-Pyong Song and Anne Rashid   Under the sky even the bruised reed shakes freely for one season— if a tree is deeply rooted even if the trunk is sawed off, new buds sprout. The bruised souls, let us shake fully, let us suffer, shaking fully. Even the floating weed that moves without root, it will bloom, where water collects around it. Like everywhere in the world a brook will run, like everywhere in the world a lamp will get lit. Let us go, sufferin ...   read more

Medicinal White Sage   11 y  
Native Americans have long used sacred white sage in ceremony and as medicine. I use it for medicinal purposes in water and in tea.
White Sage-- Photo by Elliot Vega from NATIVE SAGE   I had a healing with Chumash medicine woman Cecilia Garcia June 3, 2011 and she told me to put one sage leaf in my drinking water per day and another sage leaf every night for tea. Sacred White Sage used as medicine connects a person to Spirit, helps to heal whatever needs healing be it mental, emotional, physical or spiritual, and helps whatever medication or supplements you’re taking to work more effectively. Sage tea, drunk one hour before bedtim ...   read more

Three minute prize-winning video
”This summer, Philips and director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaking competition dubbed ’Tell It Your Way’ following its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project ’Parallel Lines.’ The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted. There were two strict rules— The dialogue could be precisely six-lines (as it was in the ‘Parallel Lines’ films), and entries could not exceed three minutes. Here’s the prize-winning entry in Philips’ ’Tell It Your Way’ competition. Easy to see how it impressed and touched the judges.”   read more

Becoming Peaceful Change   11 y  
Gretchen Crilly McKay, American Sangoma and Shamanic Practitioner, offers 5 suggestions for living more consciously with intention in this message for Spring. Sunday, May 29, 2011 Becoming Peaceful Change   Spring has arrived in all her glory. After much rainfall during the winter months, the coastal community where I live is alive with vibrant shades of green, purples, pinks, and yellows. I sit on my patio overlooking the quiet little canyon in Laguna Beach where I live and I feel peaceful. The giant cottonwood rustles as the breeze tickles her branches and the air is filled with bird songs and wind chimes. Peace. It is these moments that I want to imprint on ...   read more

Chumash Medicine Woman   11 y  
Today I am walking around with a bandana on my head, filled with all kinds of Native California plant leaves, that I made yesterday at a healing workshop with Cecilia Garcia, the last Chumash medicine woman. I slept with it under my pillow all night--very fragrant! Mugwort leaves are supposed to help integrate the left and right brain. When I put the bandana over my heart I cry. Think I'm gonna get a healing from this woman.
Last night I drank a cup of white sage tea that I brewed--it was funny as after I drank it I laid in bed with my heart hammering and wondered if I’d just poisoned myself (ridiculous, but that’s what went through my head!)--it’s supposed to RELAX you and help you sleep. So, I laid there and laid there and then BOOM! I fell asleep without warning and slept for 6 hours straight without moving an iota from the position I was in (excellent for me, as I usually toss and turn all night and wake up on and off) before I woke up and had to pee! I don’t even remember falling asleep! Tonight I’m go ...   read more

Art:Yom HaShoah   11 y  
Today is Yom HaShoah, also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day. The holiday occurs every year on the 27th of Nissan in the Hebrew calendar. Shoah, which means catastrophe or utter destruction in Hebrew, refers to the atrocities that were committed against the Jewish people during World War II. On this day, I remember those who died in the Shoah, and I honor my Ancestors.
“Chava, The Forgotten One” watercolor 11” X 14” created by Mayah July 2010 Going to bed at 12:30 A.M. on the morning of July 23, 2010, I suddenly had the impulse to draw. Getting out the drawing pad, sitting on my bed, I had no idea what was going to come out if my pencil. Out came the image of this young woman, broken window in the background, mournful look on her face, homemade Jewish star patch on her shoulder (The Nazi’s forced Jews to wear a Star of David patch on their arms, to identify themselves as being Jews). She lived in Eastern Europe and died in the camps during WWII ...   read more

2Penguin Videos!   11 y  
The first video is a cute little penguin at the zoo. The second video is shot by tourists watching as orcas surround a penguin, perhaps meaning to make a meal of him/her, or perhaps not! Watch what happens! P.S. I really appreciate orcas, and think their name "killer whales" lends an air of undeserved malevolence to a magnificent Being!
Cookie the Little Penguin at the Cincinatti Zoo Very Happy Gentoo Penguin! I found a shorter version of this video on youtube; the poster says ”Penguin jumps into boat to escape Killer Whales. I have been in contact with the guy who was driving the boat. He said the whales were just playing with it and training a younger member of the pod and that they could have taken it at anytime. He also said they were never in any danger from the whales. And I did NOT ADD THE (annoying) MUSIC!”   read more
