Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Gaia and my own life

A good talk in church yesterday.

I'd recommend listening to anything Pana Columbus says.  Her Website here.

I will be looking to see her elsewhere, and am also looking for her book, She Wore Blue Invoking the Water. her memoir, which is available at Malaprops bookstore in Asheville.

Here's her TedX talk at Arcadia University a year ago.  http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/21528895
This isn't the same as what she said at church today...but her article Heaven on Earth is pretty much it.

So go listen to your heart, and discover your passion.

Me, I went to the river to honor Oshun, the Orisha goddess of water energy.  French Broad River just north of Asheville, as it travels north and then to the Smokies. My Rogers ancestors lived at the junction of the French Broad River and the Little Pigeon River in Pigeon Forge, TN back in 1794. But with yesterday's event, I wasn't thinking of ancestors at all. Lovely singers of the Sahara Peace Choir.  Lovely day. Drumming women (12 or so I think) and yes, I took lots of pictures.  Tomorrow I'll share.

Today I'm just in bliss.
