We have much more in common that our beloved Great Mother!
We have our humanity in common: our innate love of life, our innate altruism, our universal wish for love, peace, happiness, and prosperity for ourselves and our children. (All children are our children.)
This is the time of the Great Awakening – the Great Turning – and all we need do is practice that w
hich we want to become. Its essential to practice that which we want to feel and be and radiate to others and the living world, because, what we practice is always what we become.

Huffington Post just blogged about this author and his new book. I think it’s worth a look. Here is a quick look at the intro of his article… Just another word, Tim Ferris, world’s most successful podcaster, says nearly 100% of all top successful people meditate.
“Let me ask you a question. How much time have you spent today thinking about either the past or the present? Obsessing over things you can’t change or events you won’t be able to control? If you’re like most of us, probably too much.

Sometimes Calley’s work takes her off-island, and this is her latest completed project, A Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts Art in Public Places Stained Glass Mosaic Mural at Pukalani Elementary School on Maui.
It is titled NA WAO A’O PI’ILANI – The Life Giving Forests of Maui. Ancient Hawaiian wisdom states, “Hahai no ka ua i ka ulula’au. – The rain follows after the forest.
Destroy the forest, the rains will cease, and the land will become a desert. With over 97% of Maui’s original dryland forests already history, the beautiful island of Maui is well on its way to becoming a desert. Depicted in the mural is the message that “Water is Life” with the triangles and surrounding pattern showing the water cycle. Lilinoi, the goddess of the fine mists and of Haleakala, also beautifully depicted in the mural, instructs her listening students that the water does not come from the clouds; it comes from the trees, who gather the clouds, to water the land.
Assisted by over 300 people, the mural was a two-year project, and notably included about 185 Pukalani students, mostly 4th graders who crafted the ‘lei of aloha’ border surrounding the mural. For more information and many more photos, visit Calley’s website.
My web designer, Julia Fairchild, found this full page ad in The Wall Street Journal, sponsored by Starbucks. She reformatted it from the black and white block letters to this beautiful poster to share with the world. Thank you Starbucks!
Reuben Margolin may well be the single best sculptor I have ever seen. I found his art jaw dropping! It is so big, so complex, so elegant, so ingenious, you have just got to see it!
