“Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding
that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy.
The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant
to be celebrated.”
“For far too long we have been seduced into walking a path that did not lead
us to ourselves. For far too long we have said yes when we wanted to say no.
And for far too long we have said no when we desperately wanted to say yes. . . .
When we don’t listen to our intuition, we abandon our souls. And we abandon
our souls because we are afraid if we don’t, others will abandon us.”

~ Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice

Watch a mother — how much she does for the child. But if you ask her, she will
say, “I have not been doing anything. In fact many more things were needed to be
done and I have not done them. I always feel that my child has not received as
much care as was needed.” Then go to the secretary of a club or an institute and
ask him. He will give you a long list of everything that he has been doing
there. Even things which he has not done will be included in the list!
He is a doer; a mother is a lover.

The heart of every home!

The Kitchen

A HOME IS MADE OF MANY ROOMS
TO REST, TO SLEEP, TO SHOWER
TO PLAY, AND READ, AND TALK A LOT,
DO HOBBIES BY THE HOUR

BUT THE KITCHEN, AH, THE KITCHEN
IS A ROOM THAT’S MADE OF DREAMS
OF FANTASIES…CREATED BY
A LOVE OF COOKING SCHEMES

TO TOUCH, TO SMELL, TO VISUALIZE
THE WONDERS THAT OCCUR…
AND THEN TO TASTE, AND THEN TO TASTE
RESULTS OF THINGS THAT WERE

AT ONE TIME JUST “INGREDIENTS,”
IN THEIR PLACES ON THE SHELVES
BUT BECOME A WONDROUS MIXTURE
AS THOUGH TRANSFORMED BY ELVES

YES, A HOME IS MADE OF MANY ROOMS
EACH ONE HAS IT’S PLEASURES
BUT THE KITCHEN IS THE BEST OF ALL
FOR FINDING HIDDEN TREASURES

#WorldofSymbolism . . . In the veils between the worlds,

“In the veils between the worlds, I remember the fairy folk who guard the ancient places. May we walk lightly and with courtesy upon the earth, may no being stay their progress or block their path, so that the hidden household of the earth may be peaceful”.

~Dora van Gelder (1904-1999)

” ‘Can you turn me into a nightingale?,’ she asked.

‘I can,’ replied the wizard. ‘But you must know that the nightingale,
in spite of its glorious voice, is a melancholy little bird that dwells
in the shadows…’ ”

#WorldofSymbolism . . . The Grizzly—alive—extinct—beleaguered

“Alive, the grizzly is a symbol of freedom and understanding – a sign that man
can learn to conserve what is left of the earth. Extinct, it will be another
fading testimony to things man should have learned more about but was too
preoccupied with himself to notice. In its beleaguered condition, it is above
all a symbol of what man is doing to the entire planet. If we can learn from
these experiences, and learn rationally, both grizzly and man may have a chance to survive.”

~ Frank Craighead
