Americans: Happy Thanksgiving / Everyone else: Hey! :-)

THIS IS NOT A RACE RANT JUST SAYIN’

However, me being the patak (I speak Klingon better than I write it) I am, let me ask my American brothers and sisters and transgendered folk just what are we celebrating?

This is how I remember it….

Pale faces coming to these lands, telling the natives, who have lived here….well FOREVER….well as long as they can remember that how they live is WRONG. That their(pale face) way was the only true way, the RIGHT way.

Pale faces telling the natives that the way they worship and commune with THEIR higher power is WRONG. And that their (pale face) way was the only true way, the RIGHT way.

Then after they came, the natives started to die…illnesses they have never seen….are killing them. But that’s THEIR FAULT, because of how THEY lived. That is until they (pale face) came and told us … That their way was the only true way, the RIGHT way. Oh, their God is punishing those who refuse him.

That is what I seem to remember.

Hey, isn’t gluttony a sin? So, I guess this holiday is sanctioned by God and the rules are suspended?

I don’t know. This is where I went…..where I was lead to go, and now I am done!

An Affirmation of Hope

Hope, fragile, luminous & buoyant, fill me now,
bring your gifts of optimism, faith & positivity,
grow strong within me, today and everyday,
increase my connection with those around me,
balance my moods with a lightness of being,
and touch all those I meet, with blessings.

Hope, fragile, luminous & buoyant, fill me now,
humble and expand my heart, with openness,
making me compassionate, relaxed & kind,
aware of the many blessings I have each day,
making of me a better, more human, person.
Hope is a gift that passes through me, to others.

Easy to do, hard to do


They’re easy to do– things of no good & no use to yourself. What’s truly useful & good is truly harder than hard to do.

Wisdom fields


Fields are spoiled by weeds; people, by delusion. So what’s given to those free of delusion bears great fruit. Fields are spoiled by weeds; people, by longing. So what’s given to those free of longing bears great fruit.
