Again and again. This land appears to be hit too many times, by nature and by despairing individuals with no creativity or hope left in their minds or hearts. Again and again we are called upon to reach into our deep resilience in order to survive, and to thrive again.
We now turn and face a small town of Moore, Oklahoma, that, for no reason other than the design of Earth and Air, has been hit. We try to make sense of such things, in our human terms, but cannot.
Our hearts go out to all of you there, you are all heroes, adults and children both.
May you continue in strength, find your loved ones and grieve your huge and unimaginable losses, knowing you are not alone. The country sees you, and will send what we can and what you need. We hold you all in our hearts.
This is my first video published Ever! But sometimes Happiness demands stepping out and just doing something before you are polished. I am telling you about “The Energy of Money” by Maria Nemeth, Ph.D because she has rocked my world! Watch this video, like it, share it, and then buy the book. Then Read it!! You will feel a deep shifting in the way your perceive your own worth. Let your world be rocked, and turn towards happiness, too!
We found this funny fellow on San Juan Island last weekend—Take the time, pull off the road, look into the face of an Alpaca—a sunset, a lake, a horse, a flower….. allow it in, drink it in, and enjoy its existence. Happy May!
One wonders about the enormity of tragedy fallen on the little, resilient and supportive town of West, Texas. I listened to the interview with an EMS volunteer last night and was struck with the simplicity, honesty, and caring of his remarks. West is lucky to call him citizen. We send support, sorrow, and hope to this town in your hour of need. Your past and now your future is made different by this event, and your kindness to one another remains the foundation for that future. I hope I can visit one day, for this seems to be a beautiful place.
Our Hearts go out to Boston and all who are affected by this terrible attack. There are no words to say that are strong enough, gentle enough, caring enough, healing enough to erase the effects of such outright cowardice and mind-numbing emotional poverty. All most of us can do is send our love and support to those who are immediately affected. To those who stayed to help, who stayed in the lion’s mouth to rip away the barriers and carry wounded people out of the scene to safety, you embody the very best of what is human. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.
Here are some pictures for you of this wonderful moon who has shown her
Window of Light
face the last couple of days. The last snow has melted (so far) and I have been feeling a bit house-bound. I went out into my circle late the other night and lay down on the damp, cool earth. I pushed my face into the moss and breathed deeply of the awakening of spring. I sang to the moon, talked to the trees, and felt the drops of condensation as they let go of the branches over me. I lit a candle, took some pictures, and came in.
I went out again the next night, and there was my candle, still burning! It was so precious, so private, that I simply watched a little while and backed away. I came out again this evening to find a bare patch of ash in the center of my circle. Not a drop of wax was left. There’s something wonderful about all that!!
Happy Oestara, Happy Easter, Happy Full Moon, Happy Spring (Yes it IS coming!!) The earth is awakening, the sky is warming. May you breathe deeply and allow it IN. Kate

Sometimes happiness bursts in under our feet. No advanced hype —just a cheeky little squirrel with food on his mind. Oh, I know all about the down side of squirrels—but what a moment of sheer joy this one was in my life! I’d just opened the door to check the bird feeder when he popped in, bold as brass! I got a few pictures, and he was gone. I think I have much to learn about simply going after what I want, don’t you? Thank you, little one, for the lesson.
