Friday Offering

The world is now far too dangerous for anything less than Utopia.—Buckminster Fuller Cold Days in Portland. Half my plants are living in the basement. The sun comes and goes… yet no heat or relief. Everything can be a prayer, a meditation it seems. These quiet days I am struck by the struggle of life, and how we try to swim against the stream. Even the struggle can be a meditation. Let it go, let it go. Here is a…

Indoctrination

The shaman seers of the Fourth World generally agree that those who tenaciously cling to the past will fall into mass insanity.—John Hogue Rowan picked up an interesting book for me for the holidays, ‘Poets on the Peaks’ (Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen & Jack Kerouac in the North Cascades) Wonderful book.

Deus Sol Invictus

A Song to Mithras (Hymn of the XXX Legion: circa 350 A.D.) Rudyard Kipling Mithras, God of the Morning, our trumpets waken the Wall! ‘Rome is above the Nations, but Thou art over all!’ Now as the names are answered, and the guards are marched away, Mithras, also a soldier, give us strength for the day! Mithras, God of the Noontide, the heather swims in the heat. Our helmets scorch our foreheads, our sandals burn our feet. Now in the…

On The Turning Of The Solstice…

To Juan at the Winter Solstice There is one story and one story only That will prove worth your telling, Whether are learned bard or gifted child; To it all lines or lesser gauds belong That startle with their shining Such common stories as they stray into. Is it of trees you tell, their months and virtues, Or strange beasts that beset you, Of birds that croak at you the Triple will? Or of the Zodiac and how slow it…

Chill days here. Full…
