Hawaii Tribune-Herald 12-26-15… “Group to exercise ‘right to travel’”

I like this idea


Climate Collapse

I support what Collette shared here. The agribusiness is creating more pollution than anything practically. If you don’t know that watch Cowspiracy the movie and read Meatonomics. And a vehement yes as Collette points out war is creating devastating effects on our climate that no one speaks to. Consider the changes Collette is making. See what resonates for you. Thank you Collette for being a voice of truth.

This has been difficult to write.

I expect to lose many subscribers.

Truth-tellers in an age of illusion are not welcome, in any circles!

However, truth be told, I have never sought the high opinion of others, so I am prepared to speak the truth, as I see it!

Some of you, maybe even many of you, will decide to unsubscribe to this blog.

Be that as it may…I must press on!

Climate Change has turned the corner…the one that faces into uncertainty and fear.

Yes, I am fearful for what lies ahead for my children and grandchildren.

I am fearful for what I have come to shape my entire being around…Mother Earth.

The violence and uncertainty that lies ahead.

I am not going to put an excess of climate information in this writing.

Step outside and tell me what you experience.

That is all you need to know…FEEL what…

Country Cottage Journal ~ A Christmas Eve Message from Bealtaine Cottage

Gratitude for what has been created and shared. Appreciation for the simplicities of life. Gifts received and given in thanks. The planting of the new during this time of winter Beautiful Creation all around in contrast to destruction. Merry Christmas Collette. Thank you for all you do and share. Love the candle lit in the window Hope indeed

Bealtaine Cottage, Ireland


The cottage is quiet.

Outside the remains of the storm huff and puff it’s remaining fury.

Inside the thick stone walls it’s Christmas Eve.

There will be a full moon on Christmas night, the first one since 1977.

But, this morning, the rays of the Midwinter sun illuminate the grey morning and all is quiet.

Quiet is a welcome word after a night of howling wind and relentless rain.

DSC07785My blessed thanks to those of you who sent me good wishes and gifts.

I am heartily grateful to receive the appreciation of friends.

DSC07784Friends like Heather, who made me this beautiful brooch, stitched with love.

I have pinned it to the lapel of my jacket…it is a thing of beauty indeed!

It is the little notes, gifts and donations that bring a sense of being appreciated.

I am indeed blessed to live my life in the service of Mother Earth…

Natural News 12-23-15… “ANALYSIS: Chipotle is a victim of corporate sabotage… biotech industry food terrorists are planting e.coli in retaliation for restaurant’s anti-GMO menu”

I had intuited this very strongly that Chipolte had been target due to its stance on non GMO foods taken earlier this year.

Yellow Butterfly ~ Following Your Joy Will Set You Free

This lovely post by Tania Marie speaks to me in a big way. I’m going through my own transformation once again and haven’t come out through the other side yet. But trusting and joyful about the possibilities and the everyday simple things in life give me so
Much pleasure. Oxox

yellow butterfly

Yesterday we found this little joyous one at the helm of The Magick Bus, at the driver’s seat and window.

There was this sudden flutter of yellow that appeared out of nowhere inside the RV. Literally, nowhere.

She was just beautiful and sweet, as you can see in this photo I captured when she settled down on the driver’s side window.

Several things ran through my mind right away.

Miracles and magick can happen at any moment, out of nowhere, and both in and from unlikely places and sources. So remain open and flexible, as well as full of unyielding belief.

Support is around, as butterflies are often the divine form that faeries and angels use to message and guide us.

To pay attention the the subtle energies and inner voice, as the butterfly is a reminder to tune in to what’s going on in the inner realm.

Because it…

The Shadow Goddess of the Cactus Cave

This was shared by Tania Marie on her blog. I wasn’t able to reblog but went to Mary Maulsby’s site to reblog this touching and poignant parable with all the beautiful animal spirit guides assisting with the transformation through shadow work of the Cave queen. Love this. Thank you so much

Walking my path: Mindful wanderings in nature

My very artistic and generous friend, Judy, made me a beautiful green, horsehair ceramic woman.  This figurine held a bouquet of pretty sticks, and wore a headdress of the same thin, straight sticks.  I thought she would look great on our forested hillside at the entrance of a cave, which is adorned and protected by a prickly pear cactus.

This is her story. It is a Winter Solstice story:

She awoke at the entrance of a dark cave, not knowing where she came from or how she got there. There were many animals standing, waiting expectantly in front of her.

“Are you here to help us?” squawked the Steller’s jay.

“Yes,” chimed in the bluebird and the chickadee harmoniously, “Can you stop the Coopers hawks from killing us?”

“And the coyotes from destroying our families?” Squeaked the gopher and the muskrat simultaneously.


The bunny nodded hopefully.

“Are you our Queen?” Chirped…

Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, 12-15-15… “Canada Officially Recognizes Historical Abuse To First Nations” and “Statement by Prime Minister on release of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission”

Love is Wonderful

It sure is. Such a sweet post. There is nothing like love. 😘

Tania Marie


I think the photo speaks for itself.

There are no limits to love and there are no boundaries to how love can express itself in our lives and the healing power it has.

Love is part of every experience and every contact we make with others, animals, plants, the Earth, and Cosmos.

Just because you can’t see it currently in your experience, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

You may simply have attachments, expectations, temporarily deflated sense of worthiness, conditioned blinders, and limiting ideas about how you want to have love express in your life – all of which cloud your ability to know it is available at any moment you choose to give and receive it.


These two little love bunnies made their way to me this week as a sweet surprise gift from a special friend (thank you Dawn!), with a lovely little story behind it.

For those…

The Gifts RV Living Has To Offer ~ What I’ve Discovered So Far From This New Journey That’s Only Just Begun

Sharing from my sweet faery friend.

Tania Marie


With just 25 days remaining until our grand RV adventure begins and already a little over 2 months (64 days to be precise) under my belt of this new lifestyle, I wanted to share just a bit about the gifts RV living has brought to light for me and what I’ve enjoyed most, SO FAR, from this experience.

Living in “The Magick Bus,” as her name reveals, is well….magickal.

And that has been both in extraordinary and not so extraordinary ways. Below I’ll share the more simple things, as I share quite a bit about the magick and miraculous stuff, and yet these simple things to me are the magick and elixir of life.

Now of course you don’t have to live in an RV in order to experience these things, nor is this lifestyle for everyone.

But it is perfect for me/us for the place we are in life…
