O.K. So...think of the calender as just that. The 5000 years+ (whatever) increments based on where the earth's position is...within the much larger 26,000 years+ (can't remember the exact figure) precession of the equinoxes orbit.
Chinese, Hindu, Tibetan and many more of the oldest cultures have tracked it for eons and recorded what the effects are on our planet and our behavior. It's a huge egg shaped orbit that takes us furthest from the center of the Galactic Plane, then makes the turn back towards it. Dec 21st, 2012 is the closest we get to the galactic center during that 26,000 years cycle.
When we are headed towards the center of the ... » Read More

Her luminous face has been described in the songs, myths and stories of cultures everywhere on this planet. She's praised, romanticized and even feared as people respond to her beauty and energy. In the mideast, great temples were dedicated to honor Illumqua, the glorius ruler of the night skies. Luna, Taktik, Hecate, Diana, Aradia, Selene, Ixchel, Akua'ba are but a few of the names reverently chanted by our ancestors. They celebrated rites and cycles related to the moon's passage and seasonal changes. Farmers planted by the signs and World War I soldiers unknowingly used the effects of her polarized light when they played jokes on new recr... » Read More

Let's have a little Cosmic Doo Dah session to take the edge off. Ready? Gonna give you a visualization if you want it and have a moment to sit down and close your eyes.*OK* Let your mind wander to an ocean cove...the water is a beautiful color and a breeze surrounds you with sharp briney smells. The water shimmers and you notice something is moving under the surface out there. You first see the shape of a very large dark woman....she's rising up and she's huge and cuddly looking. She looks so friendly and beckons to you as she smiles. She's ancient and her weathered immense body is comfortably resting on some kind of big soft chair or pillow,... » Read More

Tea is so popular that it contributes fifteen hundred tons of waste to landfills each year. So if you're a tea drinker who's also concerned about the environment, you'll be happy to know you can use brewed tea bags in a number of ways before throwing them into the garbage.You've gotten a couple cups out of that bag. Now what?! For starters...Soothe razor burn and relieve nicks and cuts by pressing a wet tea bag to your skin. Not only will the tea take some of the sting out, it will also stop the bleeding.If you have a bruise, sunburn, bee sting, mosquito bite, or cold sore put a cool, damp tea bag on the affected area and use like a compress.

What a beautiful time of year. It feels good to be with people who know most of our history and love us anyway. We've all been through a lot. We've survived plenty of dramas and setbacks, haven't we. But here we are, in this moment, joking around and waiting to share food together. We make up a tiny spirit plate, a simple offering to thank nature for her gifts this year and each person adds a tidbit of something from the table. The laughter quiets and our faces soften as a few prayers are added. I guess we're all thinking of friends and family members who have crossed over to the other side, wishing we could touch them with more than our hearts... » Read More

You know that feeling of not wanting to go work in the morning? Even before I began to feel chronically sick of my previous venue's transition into being a mainly social/commerce site, I'd been thinking about my reasons for picking people or places throughout my life. As an artist, I value authenticity and originality much more than trying too hard to be uber trendy or hip. I like being eclectic and inventive. The atmosphere one works in, whether it involves online selling or running a brick and mortar shop, can make or break a person's spirit or slowly stifle inspiration. It matters what thoughts are on your mind as you sip your morning coffee... » Read More
