Google+ What I Made Today: Journey's Landscape

Journey's Landscape


Today marks a thing that many of us blog-folk call our blogiversary. For me, it all started in 2004 on a long-ago format that could barely handle text. Twelve years ago.

In that opening entry I wrote: No telling where this may lead. For me, herbs encompass one day, spiritual guidance the next, shamanic journeys another, maybe time spent with Nature, or drumming, and so on . . . you get the idea. To me, this diversity is at the heart of the people's medicine. We have choices. We have the will to learn about them. We have the power to choose. And we have the right to change! 

Silly words. Filled with the Wisdom of the Fool that inspires me, leads me, pushes me... is me. Still. I reflect on these aging words, wrinkled and sagging, and consider just how little and just how much has changed in this measure of reality. I reflect on the journey's landscape...  on what I've witnessed... from angles all my own.

In this moment, this eternal present we share right now, I feel infinitely grateful, and challenged... pissed off at feeling so pissed off about so much... and ready to continue the healing path... with or without you. Your choice.

And across the landscape I hear the echo: No telling where this may lead. Still.

Peace.

Happy Blog-a-versary!!!!!!

I have been blogging for so long, here and there, that I don't even remember, when I started. But I do remember that way-back-then, I had to be given an Invite, by someone who already had a blog there. Imagine that!?!

By a young man in Dublin, Ireland, actually... Whom I had net-met on an International Mailing List. Mmmm, have you even ever heard, of Mailing Lists???? Probably not. They were a long time ago. -grin-

Anyway, I can't really have a Bog-a-versary, but that is fine. :-)))

New Year Blessings to you,
Luna Crone

I do know of mailing lists, Luna. And is there a bog out there somewhere, calling for your attention?
Or... maybe... mine!

Sorry to be dense, but couldn't figure out, how to leave this comment, on your latest post. :-)

"With that, may you find all that you've stashed away for safe keeping,..."

Oh yes, why do we do this? Put away and forget where. ,-) I have an excuse. I am a Crone. But you are a youngin'.

New Year's blessings,
Luna Crone

Oh, Luna... I too am a Crone. Yet the magpie stash-n-forget has always been a skill of mine. I just keep getting "better" at it! :D
