Snag or a Sign?



SingPeace! is stalled. The wagon and journey are in limbo following 4 days at the 2010 NW Folklife Festival over Memorial Day weekend.



No mistaking the intention for the earth pilgrimage for peace and global harmony; it remains strong. The "old woman," grandmother Pushkara Sally Ashford, is keen to carry on.



The hitch, quite literally, is in the hitch.



Locally, we've been challenged to arrange for a tow vehicle and driver every time we want to move the… Continue

Grandmother Moon: Gathering the Women

Central to the SingPeace! Earth Pilgrimage are the ElderWild and ElderWise women, the Grandmothers who are finding their voices and singing out on behalf of their children's children and future generations. I will be sharing more of their role in coming posts.



Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the March full moon sweat lodge for women which took place this weekend, I noted a significant change within myself. This experience prompts me to share the following:

Counting smiles, not miles as the SingPeace! gypsy wagon journey begins

Namaste, SingPeace! friends,

With the SingPeace! gypsy wagon on the road, we are counting in smiles, not miles. As the journey begins, each of our recent short trips with the wagon has had a celebratory air, full of surprise encounters, challenges and fun.





Steve Habersetzer, the master craftsman who built the wagon, kindly towed the wagon across the water with his '57 Chev pickup.…

Peace is the Way: Ten Steps to Peace Consciousness--Deepak Chopra

Peace is the Way



Ten Steps to Peace Consciousness

(taken from Peace is the Way, by Deepak Chopra)



1. Change doesn't start on the surface. It's generated from consciousness. This has been true throughout history. If both Buddhism and Christianity could begin with one person, let us not think in terms of numbers and odds. It may sound grandiose to compare ourselves to great spiritual guides, but we act collectively, as an alliance. Our strength comes from critical… Continue

Old Woman's Reply

Old Woman's Reply



"Back to the shoe?" You'll never catch me,

Domination? Dominion? That's his-story.



"Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!" i grimace. Your shoes squeeze and sting!

Life doesn't make sense, if i cannot sing!



Trying to fit in, something always felt wrong,

In the molds others made, i would never belong.



Mom always said: "If the shoe fits,…

From Mick Dodge: "OLD WOMAN GO BACK TO THE SHOE"

I went on a good footing this morning training in the cedar trees, and thinking about press release things and the pilgrimage, and this was mused out, so i send it on.

Peace in the 'Hood'

Not surprising to me that neighborly (and family) relations come up early on when we step forward for Peace and Global Harmony. As soon as I signed on to this pilgrimage, a "war" broke out in my neighborhood. Guess what? It was over the use and maintenance of a road that we all share in common. I took it as a test of my commitment to cleanse and free myself of habits that would inhibit or block the peace that is who I am and what I feel I am about in this life. It was an opportunity to stand… Continue
