sacred rage

Hey, I’ve been thinking about sacred rage.  I had a friend who hated his coworker for her taste in music–insipid, bland.  Well, maybe he hated her for other reasons, but her taste in music sealed the deal. I listen to chill music, but I can listen to angry music too.  When I was a teenager,… Read More »

clouds

Oh hey, gmorning.  Could I show you some pictures?  These clouds amazed me the other day, in the early morning. Then here’s another sky pic.  What do you think of these clouds?  Stormy!  So pretty!  That sunny part seemed like a magical light place, a portal to a bright world I could dream about. Then… Read More »

good music

“You listen to good music!” Ming said. “Thank you!” I said.  “There’s a lot of good music around.”  I was hearing this medicine in Spanish. “Look!  Jaguar!” I said.  “Snake!”  There’s a jaguar on the art for youtube.  Jaguar is special to me, for sure.  I’m nuts about snakes also. spiritual scientist I used to… Read More »

music and magic

I don’t usually use the word magic, but the talk was named by someone else, so I’m going with it.  Please see this video of me talking about music and magic, my practice run for the presentation I’m giving for the local UU pagan group. I might say something’s magical, like the magical parking lot. … Read More »

sacred song

I was listening to youtube and it went to this sacred song. I was like–holy crap!  What is this song?  I had not heard it in so long.  I totally forgot about it.  Years ago I listened to it all the time.  I guess the name is not that catchy for me to recall.  Maybe… Read More »

to my love

Yesterday I was feeling a lot of emotions.  Then for some reason I watched this video and heard this song, To My Love.  I like another Bomba Estereo song. It was very moving to me, to see the different people dancing, including kids.  Treating kids as valid people is moving.  I see it far too… Read More »

God is a woman

Kind of like how I got full on seeing God as a man, so I needed to switch to seeing God is a woman, and it never felt like time to go back.  “Oh, this break from seeing God as a man feels nice.  I guess this break will be….my whole life.” Then I was… Read More »

music festival

There’s a music festival coming up to support Pace e Bene.  The interfaith peace org that Ming and I help run, Nevada Desert Experience, is a co-sponsor! What a pretty blue guitar, huh? I was having a fantasy of writing a peace song to perform for the music festival, and asking Ming to record it. … Read More »

Lavender Witch

I’m so happy about this band Lavender Witch.  I’m zine friends with one if its members.  This video is beautiful.  I love the “you think you’re so much better than us” part.  It makes me feel strong in who I am. “Not My Sister” is addressing TERFs, I think.  Or just anyone who says they’re… Read More »

leg cramp

“Do you want me to massage your leg?” I asked Ming.  He woke up with a leg cramp. “No, it’s already gone,” he said. “Oh, I’m glad your leg is gone.  That means you don’t have to walk anymore.  There’s a song about that!”  Then I sang for him. If I ever lose my legs, … Read More »
