My grandmother called tonight and told me she thinks my infant daughter is different. She said I’ve seen her grab your attention from across the room without even a squeak. I watch her give you a pulling look and you turn your head and sort of speak to each other. I said yes, it is like that.
She said, do you know much about the aborigines? When I lived in Australia in the ’40s I spent some time with them. They go on walkabouts and connect from across the path without a word. And then when the astronauts had trouble landing they sent up sparks from their big fires. Some people laugh at that. But I don’t.

Never forget that the universe is a single living organism possessed of one substance and one soul, holding all things suspended in a single consciousness and creating all things with a single purpose that they might work together spinning and weaving and knotting whatever comes to pass.

Nearly the end of September

oldpinetree:

The coyotes were out early, yipping and calling out their strange howl before 8pm (which is well past dark now). The deer have found the sides of roads again. Tonight I saw a big buck who stood so beautifully and stared me in the eye, strangely unmoving and unafraid, silently reminding me to be on the lookout, as though my mother’s warning was not enough. Above us all was a crescent halloween-like moon, rusty orange and hazy.

Fall has come on so soft and gentle this year.

I really want an environmental revolution to happen soon. Gardens everywhere, herbal wisdom flourishing, intelligent environmental policies, aggressive fighting for plants, straying away from reliance on shady food industries and growing our own to help our own and nurture our own, we see everything, how it’s made and who it goes to cause it’s ours typa shit. I really want this.
