the magic space between old and new always present

… in real space and time, beyond tick-tock and the number given to an orbit, which is measured from some arbitrary event (2,021 years since what?) … let there be beauty and strength power and compassion honour and humility mirth and reverence … if it is not found within, it will not be found anywhere […]

Dis-covering That I am a Place

When I was pregnant for the first time, it was a shock to realize that “something” could grow in me. Though I had no words for it at the time, it was a beginning of revelation of the presence of the creative force of life in me. There was nothing second rate about this, and […]

Solstice Moment EarthGaia December 2020

This is one of two Moments of Earth’s annual orbit around Mother Sun when She/we enter/s a Season of Solstice. For the Southern Hemisphere December Solstice is the Summer: the awesome fullness and peaking of the light part of the day, and the turn /return to lengthening dark out of that fullness. It may celebrate the […]

Journey to Coolum: Belly Stone Revelations

Recently I travelled with my partner to a popular beach named Coolum within our region of East Coast Australia, and I was awestruck with its beauty. Being conscious of the original inhabitants of the land I live with, I googled for the names of the traditional people of the area and found that the Coolum […]

Infinite Generosity

One of my favourite stories is in this telling of a conversation between cosmologist/physicist Brian Swimme and geologian/cultural historian Thomas Berry: On another occasion, Brian was passionately telling Thomas, over a cup of coffee in a café, that he had figured out the source of the problem in industrial society and what needed to be […]

Equinox @ EarthGaia September 2020 C.E.

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia, as our Planet may be named[1], will occur at 13:31 UTC September 22nd (that’s “Universal Time” as it is named – measured at Greenwich England). Equinox is a Moment of balance of dark and light for the Planet. From this moment, the Southern Hemisphere will tip into increasing dominance of […]

A Hera’s Journey: the Return

Recently I returned to my homelands, the region where I was born and spent my early days. For most of my life I thought I would never return here: I couldn’t get away quick enough as a young teen … the world called and there was pain in this place. I returned after forty-seven years […]
