Beautiful Summer

Oh Beautiful Summer.
More wondrous than any post card, or miracle.
This is the best of life.
Great lessons, loving, happy times.

The Heat of Magic

It's fire everywhere.
A full day expends itself.
In Alaska, the light slants.
It increases the chances of a full tilt boogie.
I'm not sure what any of it means, I just believe.
As the sun sets, I'm buried in the thickest time of life.
Kiss me again.

Alaska Lilac

Solstice is here.
The longest day, and the shortest night.
I let it unfold.
Here is my bouquet for today.
Lilac, oh beautiful lilac.

Survival and Celebration

The planets revolve in a mandala around the sun.
Today the tears come from joy.
Yes, the survival mode can exhaust you. The celebration begins.
The days are long here.
Many things can get accomplished, finished, begun and continued.
Beauty lies within.
I do not look for it any more on the street, or bars, or familiar haunts.
The ghost has left my heart. What's left is courage and love.
I see the path and find solace in my process.
All the lessons, time and patience has proven love is the cure.

Telling a Man

I had to speak up.
I said I didn't want to work that hard.
I want to be loved and adored.
I want to laugh.
I want to play.
I want to feel happy about our time together.
I really love you, but get out.

The Golden Days Begin

I feel strong and ready to do the work.
Excited and completely thrilled that I'm getting a handle on,
'The Reluctant Shaman'.
Although the work is difficult,
and making up a story worth reading is hard,
I keep going in full faith that it is a story worth reading.
Funny, how hard it is to actually write.
No one knows unless they are a writer,
or have ever tried to write, how it is.
Turning straw into gold.
Yes, I'm taking thoughts,
and putting them on paper.
The golden moments of life.
Today is breakthrough.

Thank you!

The Children Help

Sweet life of growth and wisdom.
I breath the beauty of our children.
Faces of wonder.
Hula Hoops and Dance light their eyes.
Fresh lives filled with love and promise.
I delight in being surrounded by the community of Anchorage.
The Ocean Festival was glorious.
Music, sun, families, friends.
Days like these are why I'm here.

Let The Good Times Roll

KoKo Taylor passed away yesterday. I lit a candle for her, and all the wild spirits that have inhabited the planet. I dedicate this entry to her hit, 'Let The Good Times Roll'. I find happiness in life today. Yes, it's not an easy life, but a full one is fine. I don't want to fight, but I do fight for what is right, fair, good, just. It's my interpretation. It could be wrong or right, but I find I'm impelled to stand up for what I believe in. When I love someone, it's hard to recognize if it's healthy, or dependent, or compromised. Yes, there is the blush of love and romance, but day to day life is not glamorous with most folks. I like being on my own. When people give me their insight on my faults, and weaknesses, I listen. I learn from my mistakes with people, but I can walk away still loving myself. Live your life. Know yourself.
