EMR exposure and brain danger. Do you hear me now?

I have thought about this for a long time. There is just way to much radiation and soon to be more with the digital upgrades and even more cell phone and radio waves flying throught the air. It’s a bit like teflon-how we all have traces of it in our blood now, even Natives in the Amazon.

If you can please keep these electronic devices away from your children and your own brain. Time will tell, but I think the bees have given us a bit of a clue. A child’s brain is still developing into it’s 20s. Just a thought today. I am not anti-technology but I find technology gone wild, without studied effects a bit troublesome. Aren’t you even the slightest bit curious why the Senate would not allow a delay in the transition to DTV?

My teen says she does not care and would risk the danger for technology, but that is a child’s way of  thinking. – They live for today mostly.  Our family does not use cell phones and will not in the future. We also unplug as much as possible anything electronic in the house. It is true though that more and more you can not find a place where you are immune to EMR exposure.

Remember…people back in the day thought that “coal” was an amazing thing that everyone should have burning in their homes. And that cigarettes and cocaine, opium and foot binding were fun/fashionable and even touted as medicinal. That Asbestos was a miraculous product we should coat every inch of our homes and schools with. Just because some one is selling a product that may seem useful in the short run does not mean the companies selling a “product care about you or your children. Please stop wandering around the market gabbing on your box really loud with your bluetooth – all of you crazies. Please do not drive while having a really great conversation about your lunch. Hands 10 and 2 please.

A PRAYER FOR THE HEALING OF NATIONS
     By Lily-Therese “Sacred Dove”

Oh Great Spirit, Our Father, whose breath of Life we experience in every direction of our great nations, hear us. Great Spirit whose voice we hear in silence and in the roar of thunder, listen to our prayers for World Peace. We come to you as the children of all great nations; in love, faith, trust, and unity.

Father Sky bring us warm rains of cleansing waters. Give us clouds with silver linings and the ability to cope during the wind’s of change and uncertainty. Mother Earth bring us an abundance of food to feed all the nations. Give us a bountiful harvest to nourish those that walk on two legs, those that walk on four legs, those that fly, swim and crawl. Grandfather Sun, shine brightly on all nations. Grandmother Moon light our way in times of darkness.

Creator of all great nations bless all of your creations, sky eagle and tiny ant, great bear and majestic mountains, winding rivers and powerful oceans, rain forest and desert sands, mighty trees and green valleys, fish in the seas and birds in the air, tricky coyote, and peaceful dove.

Bless the weak, the hungry, the lonely, and the homeless. Bless the poor and the rich, the mighty and the fearful. Give us strength to fight the powers of darkness. Give us hope in times of depression, faith in times of fear, and a joyful loving heart. Give us healing in spite of our negative emotions and love to replace all hate.

Great Spirit, Light of the World, bless all of the Great Nations and bring peace and harmony to our universe. Heal, bless, prosper, and unite All Nations through the power of Your unconditional Love.

So must it be.

I have mixed hope today as we begin this new Journey. I feel the joy and desire and the shedding of skin that so many in our nation are feeling. I get that Obama is a one man stimulus package and that so many are so liberated on this day of days. I still though feel just a little empty, mabey by the end of the day it will be better and I will get caught up in the waves of hope and speratus.

My little children are filled with the belief and the faith of change. My Son has been a huge Obama fan since day one, as was my teen. My youngest is all Native American and a Green Party witch like her mother. My husband – King of the proletariats and busker hater finds the whole Obama experience a bit over the top “Hollywood”, he is disgusted by the commercialization of a sacred transfer of power.  I think he is secretly happy and hopeful, but must remain gruff for the sake of the children and realistic expectaions. He did not diss the homemade apple cinnamon bundt cake.

I do not hide the fact of my dissapointment over once again no woman as Commander in Chief but I know our time will come and I celebrate the overwhelming Joy that people are feeling. It will be different, I am just not sure how much. The Masks are different and there is Historical Precedence. The world may indeed for a time see America as being or becoming a different animal. Time will tell. Ghandi said “You must be the change” You. No one man can save us, not even you Bono though I am willing for you to try.

I think this is my favorite blog right now and you might enjoy living the experience through her eyes. http://www.tayarijones.com/blog/ 

Tayari Jones a brilliant writer and a lovely woman inside and out. For her I am happy. For my children who still are filled with hope and delight and believe all things good are possible.

If the People lead the leaders will follow. Stop War Stop War now.

I watched the little girls at our Girl Scout Winter Dance tonight and I kept thinking — Why can’t all children be this happy and safe and carefree. It does not make sense all this War. I was thinking of all the wars and the children huddled in fear. Our children here in homeless shelters and sleeping on the streets or in their cars. It does not make any sense. War. Poverty, Suffering.

It is just evil, anytime you are killing children the answer should be no.

It is up to you. It’s up to me. All of us. Waking up.

We need to figure out how to stop wars in our lifetime. Mabey a giant dance party? Robots? Zomies? Communal Mind to stop letting corporations rule our world? Aliens? There has to be an answer…It is a war not just between countries but for the hearts and minds and souls of human kind. Even our very future of the species.

Let me know if you come up with anything.

Lets dance a little. Remember?

Okay that’s all I am tired now. Dream company needs a Dance Floor.

Mothers of Organic (Fathers too but that would be FOO) Here is their website http://www.organicvalley.coop/farm-friends/moo/

I was Vegan for a very long time before moving to Wisconsin. Macrobiotic also but I love cheese and honey so back to Vegeterian it was. I do notice the difference in both energy and appearance (you seem pinker when you eat fish and chicken – mabey its all in my mind). I have several friends who will still not eat anything with eyes. I would love to say we never eat meat and only the healthiest of foods but in the Winter Wonderland the growing season is short and the fresh fruit and veggies at the market -while delicious- are sprayed with all kinds of chemicals and shipped from great distances (both a boon and a bane). The food from the heath food store is crazy expensive and don’t they know it. One thing I will not skimp on is the Organic Milk. Last summer we switched over for good. I was tired of the GMO reactions in my kids to the overly processed and messed with “milk products” being offered and kept noticing how when you left milk out for a few hours it turned a sort of grey green and lumpy. Organic milk does not do this. Do the milk experiment and see for yourself. GMOS or genetically modified milks are more for the benefit of the milk manufacturer than for the consumer. It is not that they are adding uber brain boosting ability chemicals they just want Bossy to pump out more milk. There are many brands of Organic Milk on the market and some stores are now offering their own brands. Just a heads up to you people out there – milk is in a lot of things so you have to read labels. Organic Cheese is best too.  Its all expensive but worth it in the end. I would love to hear from you if you do any milk experiments. We bought several brands as a science experiment over the summer – left them out for hours and then compared. I think we will do this again and take some pictures. Soy Milk is a good option too. The chocolate almost passes the taste test.

Let there be light…

tree

I am missing more than I could ever express – the Christmas tree lights. We took the tree down today and propped her up behind the kids club house and she is still so lovely. My neighbor won this round, I can still see their plastic gorgeous multi-colored lighted tree from the living room window. The hawks are cruising our yard on a daily basis and the tree will help the rabbits and small birds hide a bit from them. In the summer she will get moved to the compost. Now she is just splendid in her winter white coat as the snow drifts to cover her as the night and the cold settle in.

We took the decorations off more than a few days ago but the lights only came off this morning and I am longing for that blue and white floor to ceiling twinkle. The room feels empty without it. I miss the tree too. So what else is there to do but make a sculpture.

Along time ago I  hung lights from mywindows and in the corners of the room when I was young this was cheap and interesting art. I think a lot of people do this. I love driving around looking at the festive holiday lights and will even brave cold for it. I think that Tiffany glass has this magical quality. Trees and color but I have kids I need to put in piano and ballet and boxing lessons. Tiffany will have to wait. So I have begun an adventure to research organic light sculptures and I do not care one whit if it is useful. I need light and beauty. So here the search begins. 

Here’s what we have so far:

lampagehttp://www.organiclightsculptures.com/

I like the shapes but I need more color and they look expensive. Green and I like the use of bamboo. My favorite is the rather industial hanging light. I love Mid-century modern Noguchi lamps, they are more than art or light they are butterfly wings but there is not enough shimmer and flicker of colored lights. http://akaristore.stores.yahoo.net/index.html

I may have found it in these LED designs http://lightenergystudio.com/ but I am thinking these would be best at my dream corporate offices. Expensive again. But getting closer. Gorgeous colors. I am not sure yet which way to go. http://lightenergystudio.com/LightingDesignsFrameset.htm You have to go see these sculptures. I am thinking I might just set up a few artificial trees (skinny country all year round style trees) and we can put the lights on whenever we are missing the season of lights. Mabey I will just hang lights from the corner of the room again.

Mommy’s lovely light monster.

My dream Publishing Company.

I will add to this as I go. When I grow up and start my own Publishing company I am going to use a few companies as inspiration.

First Google’s offices in Zurich. It’s Metacafe just click it.

Another is this lake/ocean view room. Yes that is right I think we will build underwater too. Why not. I think we will have some places for the employees to live as well as work, if they want or are visiting from other countries.
