No, I'm not the Rosemond who murdered Tupac with P. Diddy. But I am the Robin Rosemond Shaman, Power, Priestess who kicks ass and can now do a hand stand. Alaska brings out the best in me. I'm driving up the Al-Can in May, so come back and check out The Rosemond Post for travel, humor, tips and all the bounty that the Universe provides!

Happy Easter! I'm cresendo. I'm the peak. I'm happy. The egg, the fool, and childlike wonder. Even when life exceeds your dreams, it's bitter, sweet. The taste of true love, and the time it takes to understand how deep it goes, is difficult. I shine with my loved ones. We play hard. It's like a roller coaster, and I find that there's not much peace in erotic, sexuality. It's like bathing in fire, and bubbling over. I certainly wouldn't trade the heat of passion, for a tepid relationship with no spice. I know I walk this path alone, but from time to time, I hold the hand of another warrior, and we mix like a perfect cocktail. The beauty of a new beginning. The sweetest words are the simplist. Weak in my knees, you ask me to stand before you. I do just what you say, and feel naked, even with my clothes on. I continue to tell the truth and be the innocent. There's no gile, just love. Love that's survived, and now explodes between us. It's clear how dear we are to each other. I have no answers, but I believe this is a healing, madness. Like a spring sacrifice, burning at the altar of pure love. "This is it. This is it. You got a lot of hopes but they ain't worth a shit. This is it. This is it, and it ain't so bad ya know. Why can't you see? Why can't you hear? The sounds and the sights that are so dear. It ain't over here and it ain't over there, just stay where you are cause it's every where. Don't matter if you do. Don't matter if you don't. Same if you do. Same if you don't. Gotta be a little blind in order to see, there ain't no you and there ain't no me. This is it!" (Willi Cripps)

Spring! I begin again. I step into my boat, and float by the light of the moon.
The unconscious is alluring and I wander, led by my heart. A leap of faith takes me. I'm better, and I get what I want. I'm fulfilled in this story. This incredible life is mine, and there's no way I can be forlorn one minute longer. That has ended completely.

More Romance! People gonna talk the way they do. Today I know I'm loved and it's enough. I weep like a willow, and cry like a baby, but I'm going on, in faith, that it's all love. Whoo Wee and Horse Shit! I'm saying, and I ain't saying! "The only reason to live is to love!" There's a fire burning in my heart.

I drove out to Palmer and picked a bouquet of Pussy Willow. I've stepped away from so much in my life, and now I'm letting go of even more. Like a snake, I shed skin and just drop what is of no use to me any longer. I pray, ask, visualize, dance, sing and do yoga. It's the best life I've had in a long time and I'm reporting it all to you on my blog. I study the eight limbs of yoga and have immersed myself in what's good for me. Now, I find a way to share all this bliss and manifest the full bounty of the universe. It's happening as I write!

To me, wholeness is the key to aliveness. Radiance comes directly from within and it comes from being one with yourself and your experience. Life flows through you and you radiate! I love Alaska and I'm going to live here. I will find a great way to make a living. I will create, prosper, love and see a future today that I walk slowly toward. I continue to love those that I love and I believe completely that they love me. They love me unconditionally and that makes me happy. I find that when I approach all of this change with good feelings, I attract the most amazing things. I see when there is confusion or bad vibes around me, I deflect it and walk on. I know this sounds like Tony Robbins or Deepak Chopra, but it's real to me.
I also find that I'm going to continue doing just what I want to do! I saw 'The Secret' and although it was a bit redundant, I did enjoy the message and I'll continue to ask, believe and receive! Your wish is my command.

When you're going through something that can take years to process, it's wonderful to have days or even moments where you see the progress of learning, or beauty of the lesson. Today was such a day. I walked the Coast Trail and had a great sense of peace. I remember in 2006 when I came to Alaska on my own and was so frightened. I walked the Coast Trail alone then and I suffered so. I was dealing with the death of my sister and father, I was slowly leaving my marriage and my job, but I didn't know where to begin, or what to do. My answer at the time was, come to Alaska. It's been a long, long journey and although I still have far to go, I'm happy. The tiniest, most wondrous epiphany brings with it the deepest breath of relief and just letting go. Hey, I think I will celebrate and have a drink with my favorite bartender Hilary Pattison.

I believe in love. I won't go to the dark side of my pathetic heart. This time in Alaska has challenged me to be a better person. Now, I must continue with that. It's up to me to understand the boundaries and the reality of who people are. I told my beautiful friend, that I'll get through this someday. I don't want to leave Alaska, even for a moment. Oh help me! That's what I yell to heaven. Some days, I'm far away. From a distant universe, I race back to my body and see a fragile me. I yearn to be inside myself. Peace and contentment, I'll have in this life. It hurts, but I continue to love.

I survived Fur Rondy 2008! What a wild two weeks. Chilcoot Charlie's beat Darwin's Theory at Snowshoe Soft Ball. Even though the loss was tough to bear for so many folks, the game was exciting and the day, splendid. The Fur Rondy Princess showed up and posed with some of the players and although the fifth inning was a disaster, I believe Darwin's was the better team. They say Chilcoot Charlie's always finds young players and Darwin's Theory let's the 'old timers' participate. It really shouldn't matter who wins or loses, but talk went on deep into the night about how it all could have been different if... The traditional meeting at Darwin's before the game was great fun and Barbara Jean served up the Hot Shots in fine style. Darwin's signature drink is an odd concoction of cinnamon liquor topped with Tabasco. The bartenders pour a shot glass full of the mixture for each and everyone and then wait until all are served. At the clanging of the bell, the partakers do a long, slow yell that cresendo's with downing the shot in unison and slamming the shot glass down. It's a tradition that can really scare the newcomer, but so be it. This is Alaska and you should be scared. I've been telling everyone who asks me, "How's Alaska?", that Alaska is incredible because each day is more humiliating than the last. Alaska is in your face and humbling. I want to continue to be hopeful and open to love. I'll share my latest poem about amore. Let me know if you think I'm too jaded to swoon again.
I saw his eyes flash
as ego clashed
when I did what I did
he hid his heart
so twirling girl and dancing soul
the battle waged tonight has told
no one's won
brave bird go on
loving every one
It comes in unseen
the plays of broken men
I flicker bright amid the hurtful, bitter den
like caves they adorn
with sweet, sweet beat
of living, breathing, watery heat
music plays and romance begins
oh balance in my innocence
all is not lost
just start again
a sacred, circle, mirrored end
Robin Rosemond 2008
