Happy Holidays! Love & Blessings for all!
May the light that you are shine through the appearances you aren't!
May we all awaken to the truth that we are and transform our fears into peace with the wand of Divine Love!
May you all have wholly, w-holy, holy-days!
I'm blog-less this month, so will send you some stanzas from my "Holiday: Every Day is A W-holy Day Song:"
Just below the threshold of thought
If we listen like we ought
We can find what we’re looking for
The diamond you can’t buy in any store
It’s the essence that we seek
It’s within the strong and meek
It’s the door that needs no key
It lives as you and it lives as me
When we remember who we are
We shine as brightly as the brightest star
We embrace a timeless peace
And remember we house the holiness that we seek!

I am composing this letter from somewhere in the sky just west of Chicago, on way to Santa Cruz. I had it almost completed when I accidentally erased the whole shebang last Thursday. I always back up…ha,ha, ha except this last time, and for a reason I’ve yet to understand, when I press delete when a mail item is in forward mode it goes poof, taking with it the entire page instead of the one little letter I wanted to get rid of! And where did it go? It didn’t show up in trash….. If any one knows Mac’s mail program and knows where these things go I’d sure love to knowJ
A special holiday offer!
Anyone who purchases a gift certificate for an astrological or coaching session, for someone else or for your self, will get the session recorded for free, a savings of $10.
And my news and greatest excitement:
I will be guest minister and at the Santa Cruz Unity Temple on Sunday, December 26th at 10 AM.
The theme is “Deep in the Dark Night a New Day Is Born: From the Caterpillar of Separation to the Butterfly of Oneness.” The service will also be featuring three of my songs.
I will be available at Gateways Books, the most wonderful spiritual bookstore and oasis in Santa Cruz, for spiritual counseling, astrological readings, and Animal Wise Tarot consultations. Last autumn I worked there and love the people and place very much. I am very happy and honored to be able to work there while I’m in Santa Cruz.
I also will continue to be available for phone readings and am scheduled to return to the Catskills on January 12th.

EARTHEARTISTRY:ELEMENTary Arts & Education for the Ecozoic Era
This program offers stories and my ecological songs to students who are home-schooled or in the classroom. My background for this is my twenty-plus year mentoring from Eco-historian Thomas Berry, a certification as a ZERI practitioner and my permaculture certification. (“Bacteria,” a song I wrote, was chosen by the American Museum of Natural History in New York in 2007 as its theme song for their first conference bringing together ecologists and microbiologists.)
Please see my website for course descriptions.
