Wishing you all a wonderful, bright, joyous day filled with Love 💜🌞💜
I am reminded that Thanksgiving day, here in the US, can invoke different feelings for different folks. For many, it is a time to gather with family and friends in joy, love, and celebration. For those that have lost loved ones, this can also be a difficult time. And for those who have lost countless family members and entire ways of simply being…a very real part of the Thanksgiving story and legacy…I too reflect on that immeasurable sense of loss and trauma still playing out today.
The good news is we have an opportunity, to come together, today and everyday…to acknowledge, heal, respect, share, and interconnect…to create and open brighter possibilities, a better way…Together. We’re all in it together, here and now. I’m thankful to share this possibility, and round of existence with you my friends.

Gray whales have been washing up on the west coast of the United States lately, and no one knows precisely why…but it’s no secret that we humans, or at least some of we humans, are taking more than our fair share. Over the past month, on two separate camping trips to different areas of the Washington coast, I sadly encountered two different gray whales dead, washed ashore.
Life is sacred, magnificent, beautiful in all forms. Shall we find a better way, for us all, together…

How do you choose to honor our democracy?
How do you choose to advance “we the people”?
How do you choose to strengthen and grow our beautiful nation whole?
In the shivery, wintery days of late January this year, Americans across the nation showed up and spoke out. For the third year in a row the Women’s Marches convened in response to a rising sense of tyranny, taking ever deeper root in our national governance, while threatening to divide and separate us here at home. In eastern Washington we the people gathered January 19th in both Spokane and Chewelah to indeed honor our democracy, and express our concerns over issues that include women’s rights, human rights, immigration policy, accessible healthcare, economic and social justice, environmental protection, governmental corruption and fraud, and so much more. Thank you to those that marched for so many reasons yet united, in our desire to evolve our society and find a better way, for the greater good…for us all. Continue reading →
