Meditating on this song and opened eyed drinking in the images. Heart afloat, mind dazzling, eyes are doorways. Thank you Feather Lynn for bringing this one to my screen. 🙂

It is my gift to be here. It is your gift to be here. Together we have gifts.

When it becomes an obligation, or a duty, there is weight but meaning. There is work to be done.

When there is insistence that our relationship be anything other than a gift, the present… it is gone. That is true for me in work, friends, love, life.

I see that now, I was never able to articulate it or express it with ease or grace.

I will sit with that. May that be a paper lantern prayer, glowing in the twilight. Carry me further down this river.

I’ve been looking for the complete movie of “The Line, The Cross, & The Curve” by Kate Bush.

No DVD to be found but I did find some used VHS tapes on Amazon. Fortunately we still have a VCR.

This video in particular, which I think is number 3 or number 5 of seven clips that make up the 30 minute movie, reminds me of the Three Rays (Christopher Penczak, The Three Rays of Witchcraft). I think in part that comes from my recent experience (4 or so months) thinking about trinities, three’s, etc.

Anyway. Enjoy.

Scott

Thanks Bryan for posting this last week on Facebook.

I would really like to have embedded this video because I am not sure that you can view it at facebook without being Chati’s friend…

The wind does not discriminate between the mountain and the sand, between the trees or man. It is still. It is driving. It is our first breath in, our last breath exhaled.

This is beautiful.

Something light for a Sunday  morning.

As a novelist and memoirist, Isabel Allende writes of passionate lives, including her own. Born into a Chilean family with political ties, she went into exile in the United States in the 1970s — an event that, she believes, created her as a writer. Her voice blends sweeping narrative with touches of magical realism; her stories are romantic, in the very best sense of the word. Her novels include The House of the Spirits, Eva Luna and The Stories of Eva Luna, and her latest,Ines of My Soul and La Suma de los Dias (The Sum of Our Days). And don’t forget her adventure trilogy for young readers — City of the BeastsKingdom of the Golden Dragon andForest of the Pygmies.

As a memoirist, she has written about her vision of her lost Chile, in My Invented Country, and movingly tells the story of her life to her own daughter, in Paula. Her book Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses memorably linked two sections of the bookstore that don’t see much crossover: Erotica and Cookbooks. Just as vital is her community work: The Isabel Allende Foundationworks with nonprofits in the SF Bay Area and Chile to empower and protect women and girls — understanding that empowering women is the only true route to social and economic justice.

I don’t know how I missed Ovation TV. I mean really, it’s a great channel, breaking away from all of the regurgitated shows that you’ve seen 1000 times. Oh make that 1001 later today.

Anyway. Brandon stopped at the start of The Artists Den: Tori Amos. You would have thought I was watching the sound of music. I know my songs. I stayed up when the house fell asleep to watch the whole thing.

Couldn’t find a full version of the performance to post until now.

Tori Amos at the Artists Den

I hope you enjoy the performance. Something for a creative Wednesday.

Tomorrow is the Queer Art Walk, at the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk, I hope to see you there. I’ll be showing with the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence at the Exchange. I’m only a small bit of all the creativity that you will see tomorrow at the benefit show.

Time, address, and other information are located on my blog here.

I just ordered a copy of For the Next 7 Generations. I think I might want to do a screening to raise money for the cause…

For The Next 7 Generations Trailer from Laughing Willow on Vimeo.

In 2004, thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers from all four corners, moved by their concern for our planet, came together at a historic gathering, where they decided to form an alliance: The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. This is their story. Four years in-the-making and shot on location in the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico, North America, and at a private meeting with the Dalai Lama in India, For the Next 7 Generations follows what happens when these wise women unite. Facing a world in crisis, they share with us their visions of healing and a call for change now, before it’s too late. This film documents their unparalleled journey and timely perspectives on a timeless wisdom.

Grandmother’s Mission Statement:

“We, the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come. We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light the way through an uncertain future. We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.”
