Humanity is incarcerated, wounded, bleeding in the absence of social, racial, and environmental justice.
To those who have felt that racism isn’t a deal-breaker, misogyny isn’t a deal-breaker, homophobia isn’t a deal-breaker, destruction of the environment isn’t a deal-breaker, disregard for human health isn’t a deal-breaker, human rights violations isn’t a deal-breaker…What have you become? What have you enabled?
Your higher sense of humanity misses you. It’s time to awaken from the hate, fear, hurt, confusion. We’re ready to welcome you back with open arms. It’s time to come home to Love.

In these difficult times, may we dream, incubate, and ultimately choose new and better ways, out of the blind consumerism that has blanketed our beautiful planet in pollution and desecration of all kinds. In the midst of of this planetary pause, may we recall the pleasure of simpler ways, in harmony, in balance with the gifts all around. Happy Beltane.

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…
