I saw this Orca pod last week in Waihi Beach reserve, just missed getting photo's of them, but saw a dingy out in the water, as they went round the outer cove, I said I bet that guy in that boat got a great showing, cos they were blowing water out their blow hole and flipping and splashing and rolling around.. and then today found these images, I'm blown away, love these guys, they have made their home…Continue
Deciding to take a break from all levels of existence have been good to me... There is nothing like healing self and remembering your path to inspire you to have hope again. For far too long I gave all I was to all that asked, and they turned out to be more greedy than what was good for me.
Being all you can be in service of other, does not mean you have to allow their greed to consume you. Having boundaries are healthy for personal growth, but does…

Last night my friend came to visit......
We were talking and I said to her, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
She got up, unplugged my computer and threw out my wine.
During my mere 21 years of life, you assume I know nothing of this world. I can assure that no matter what age a person is, that has no influence on the amount of intelligence or wisdom they possess. As a person who first started contemplating suicide at the age of 8, I have had an unique experience up to this point in my life. The one thing I can tell you that I know without a doubt is true is that there is nothing that can change…Continue
Music has long been a major source of communication. Through both instrumental music & song we protest, we scream in anger. Music allows us to speak to each other even when we have no common tongue.
We understand that people of varying times & places are linked best when we hear their music. We recognize the voice of protest Although Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land is often used as pro-American it is the voice of protest:

I have been thinking lately about the Loathly Lady stories. They all have in common the hideous woman who demands a kiss or marriage.
In the The Adventures of the Sons of Eochaid Mugmedon, Niall of the Nine Hostages proves his right to be Ard Rí by kissing an ugly woman at a ford whom his brothers have refused. This reprises the earlier tales of previous high kings Lugaid Loígde and Conn of the Hundred Battles…Continue

But in the midst of these crowds there are sinister goings - on. Women and girls are being savagely assaulted and raped by large violent mobs. On the first day alone - June 30th - at least…Continue

Today I went and spent a few hours with my mother. She and I do not get along very well. We went four years with out speaking. But finally about a month ago I gave her a call and met with her. We still have a long way to go but we are working to mend this relationship of mother daughter. As I told her it may not happen but if it does then it does. We don't have control over everything in our life so we agreed that God always has a plan. While visiting with her we was walking around her yard.…Continue

Okay, you may have the occasional bad day or perhaps you are going through a rough patch, but over all, you have it pretty good.

Nicolae Ceausescu was one of the most brutal dictators of the Communist-era. Ruling with his wife Elena, the Ceausescus spread terror and poverty across Romania. They jailed, tortured and killed their opponents.
They lived like a king and queen, while enforcing a brutal austerity program meant, in part to pay for Elena's insane…Continue

Being a witch is a state of being. I will learn to just be.
A witch learns how to work Magick, how to work with the energies of the Moon and Earth.
Witches of yesteryear led simple lives and their magick was simple too. Many did not even do rituals when they performed a spell.
Following the cycles of…
