Religion and Revolution

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. (Hamlet/Shakespeare) Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837 – 1909) We have seen thee, O Love, thou art fair; thou art goodly, O Love; Thy wings make light in the air as the wings of a dove. Thy feet are as winds that divide the stream of the sea; Earth is thy covering to hide thee, the garment of thee. Thou art swift and subtle and blind as a flame of…

The American Abroad: Frederick Bridgman

Terence McKenna: Who’s the boss? “Animals are something invented by plants to move seeds around. An extremely yang solution to a peculiar problem which they faced.” I hope you enjoy this entry… a bit of art history of a long forgotten master, and some comments from another more contemporary master of words… A taste more of Hafiz and some glorious art. The weather has finally cooled out a bit here in Portland, finally… I am hoping for some pictures and…

Monday Night Catch All….

(Luke Brown – Baphomet detail) Think of this entry as a poem of various elements… from the words, to the pictures to the flow of it all. A very warm day again. Melting. I am challenged by the heat, being by nature happiest in spring and fall. Took the dog out for a walk, she was panting in a block or so… Rowan was with me. A hot wind, sirens in the distance (Is it the 4th yet?) and almost…

Ska Pastora – In Her Presence….

Hot as all get out in Portland in the 100F levels… ack. A big congratulation to Diane Darling for her SheShamans Conference held this weekend in Geyserville California.

Diane Darling has been at the center of the Maelstrom of change and evolution in Northern California for quite awhile, often working quietly in the background, subverting the Post Dominant Paradigm with Acts of…

Into The Pyrenees… Weekend Turfing

Welcome to the weekend edition of Turfing… for this edition, we are heading to the Pyrenees, for some time in Basque Country… Hot days here in Portland, muggy as well. Helped our friends move some more this morning (Saturday) Sad seeing them leave their home of 10 years. We lived there for 2 years before they moved in. Great art, parties, and watching Rowan grow to 5 there was nice. Tom and Cheryl (our friends) are on their way in…

Through the Days…

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves”.¬óWilliam Pitt An odd day… weird news, odd events and strangeness everywhere I turned. Almost in complete counterpoint to the days leading up to Solstice. Rowan had his gathering, and it was pretty nice. (a high point) Another nice time was having Morgan stopped by, bringing some excellent music along as well. We talked about the Amadou et Mariam…
