Inspired...


Madre Adoptiva just recently came back from a Sun Dance in Oregon. Reading her blog, talking to her, as well as reading Fools Crow has been getting me thinking about my own (tiny, but hopefully growing) spiritual life, nature, and people in 'civilization'. These things have been stewing for quite a while but have really come to a head for me in the past week. I don't want to leave people with a rant about civilization so I'll just say I think the time has finally come for me to start a meditation practice, renew my efforts to be more kind and understanding, and hopefully get out in nature more often. Sadly, my weekend is already lining up to be full of 'civilzation'. Bleh. I hope yours is filled with juicy, red tomatoes, blazingly bright sunflowers, and dips in cold lakes.

I'm so glad to be an inspiration for you! My offer still stands to bring you out to that women's sweat. The next one is August 26. :)

Your last line makes me wish I was away somewhere quiet. We had a terribly busy weekend with a huge birthday party and lots of stuff to get done both before and after.. Love my baby but sooooo glad that is over :)

quiet is soooo good. this weekend wasn't real quiet for us either but i'm hoping-hoping-hoping next weekend we'll be camping.

hmmm...the 26th is the day before hubby starts his first day teaching. i'd better wait for the next round!
