My first poem of 2013 written this morning during the dawn

The Wind

The illustrious remembering prophesying wind
Sits atop the mountains and rests

Remembering tickling old wind chimes
Prophesying people filling with fear

Thinking laughing calling
Candidly sweeping hair out of Olden Eyes.

The wind
The illustrious wind

Whips down
Shakes the trees

Knocks on minds
And soothes crying babies.

All is good with the wind.

wanes not wains

just realized the word is wanes not wains.. but all of you know what I mean (:

life as I know it

I worry about something, I fret, I cry and my faith wains. At the last moment, help comes - things work out as they are supposed to - my faith is renewed. Cycle of belief... cycle of prayer... cycle of acceptance.

All is cyclical and right on course...

I am writing a discourse on thoughts concerning the healing of the rare autoimmune disorder I have been experiencing. This morning, during a prayer of gratitude, I heard the following: Ancestors who will become descendents also want us to heal so that they will not have to deal with these unbalances.

2013 The Next Big Thing in Books

Thanks to Dale Neal, a fantastic Asheville, NC based author whose new book is The Half-Life of Home. Check it out at
Dale invited me to join a blog chain 2013 THE NEXT BIG THING - a series of self-interviews by/with authors about what they’ve been working on.
So, here are ten questions concerning my newest book:

What is the title of your book?
Bear Quotes

Where did the idea come from for the book?
My belief that everything is interconnected and bears are a very important part of the eco system.

What genre does your book fall under?

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I really don’t think this book will be made into a movie but I really think Russell Crowe is a bear kind of guy – just in case.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
The spirit of the Bear is everlasting, demanding, and spontaneously intuitive.

Who is the publisher?
rENEGADE pLANETS pUBLISHING, my small minority owned press.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
One week!

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
My books: Tree Quotes, Crow Quotes, Desert Quotes, and my forthcoming Moon Quotes. And the wonderful book by Richard Bach - Illusions.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The strong spirit of creativity.

What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
An extra bonus in the back covering the importance of “Bear Spiritual Medicine.” The BEAUTIFUL cover art by Ojibwa artist Steve Hapy Jr, and you can order a copy or several copies from my website or order an ebook at!

And to keep 2013 THE NEXT BIG THING going, here are some wonderful writers and their recent books:

Denise Low
Natural Theologies: Essays about Literature of the Middle Plains (Omaha: The Backwaters Press). This book is the first critical study of contemporary Mid-Plains literature. Denise Low, former Kansas poet laureate, shows how the region’s writers inherit a Frontier legacy from Indigenous and American settler communities.

“DIVINE ARROWS” - The authors own story of personal odyssey, infused with poetry and insights that cross time and space. This spirit oriented book begins with a search for healing in 1969 when her brother is killed in Vietnam and ends with her own healing reflection being found as a result of her following the road map (arrow) of spirit (divine) affirming something she always knew - there are no coincidences in life, only synchronicities.
