Living in the forest

IFor me, it is creating a hugelkultur  around the southern perimeter of the area with buildings to form a fire break. I am using the logs and brush from the cut trees. Larry will use his tractor and back-hoe to dig the trench. We will fill it with the downed trees, and then he will use the tractor to cover the dead wood. See More

The Goddess of the Stones: The Language of the Megaliths by George Terence Meaden

Terry, I just received your book, The Goddess of the Stones. It is an outstanding book, full of descriptions, history, photographs and I especially like the chapter, The Legacy of the Spiral."Of the meanings stored within the spiral symbol the images of birth and rebirth were paramount because they signified fertility and immortality, and stone circles and round barrows were erected with these concepts in view. The Goddess of Nature and the Universe was idolised as the Goddess of the Stones. In…See More

About Me:
I changed from faith to science. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, a survivor of breast cancer thanks to the fine diagnostic work and treatment at Cancer Care Northwest, which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dreadful stuff, but a wake up to living each and every minute. Life is to remember the past, live in the present and remember a preferred future. One can be good without god! My family demonstrates it

My answer to a friend who felt offended by a comment I made

Posted on April 26, 2015 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

Hi, XXXXXXX, I am glad, you did not seek to support your claim   (mutual friends contacted him and not me.)  That is a perfect way to maintain helplessness)   Those who contacted you and not me divulge a character that many people have, however, unless and until they confront me, they reveal a victim mentality. You are entirely correct; I did bully you. I have heard that before as well as being arrogant. I confess to both. 

Frankly I don't remember what I wrote to you. If I offended…

In response to you request to some of the inane remarks coming from Christians to simple questions like, " How are you." Suddenly, you are maddened that you even asked. I've certainly heard, "God bless you" and II reply "May Odin give you many strong children." I must admit that I've never heard, "Let go and let god." I guess that's like  "let Jesus take the wheel," which I just want to be forewarned when that happens so I can pull to the side and let them pass. Again, it is the same with, "God will lead you," I would certainly ask where? The last time I let some one lead me I ended up in a dark alley with a gun in my ribs (not actual, just making a point) I have my own to add to you list which irks be to regurgitation. Try this one. In response to a simple "How are you doing?" I got this, "I blessed and highly favored." I was in a strip club which I used to frequent. I said nothing, but what I was thinking that for being blessed and highly favored she seemed to be in an occupation that suggested otherwise.

 

"It's god's plan."

Dr. T. Have you tried Prometheus books. They publish their guidelines and are very forthcoming about what they seek.That is one of the first places I'd recommend.
