Today is Halloween and I think I just GOT to go out for awhile tonight. How can I resist a full moon nite where everyones alter ego surfaces. I contemplate my alter ego....actually I think I have a walk in closet of those....ok so which alterr ego would like to come out tonight...and can I afford him or her or it... Shit I should have planned this out weeks ago...Oh well...I probably couldn't handle the committment with myself anyway...I am horrible at keeping dates, so I probably wouldn't show… Continue

By Hank Sims – The North Coast Journal -- Humboldt County, CA
Why is it that so few people are able to think with a clear head when it comes to the topic of the demon weed? After 40 years of cohabitation, you'd think we'd have a handle on what it is and isn't.
Yet discourse on the subject is even more loopy here than in the nation at large, if such a thing can be imagined. Wherever you go in Humboldt County people seem to think that the cannabis… Continue

I was in Kid Village playing music with Diego and a few other musicians on a lazy afternoon when I first met Jaecey.
She was a little girl with a little guitar who was not too shy to find her way into the center of the music energy. She knew a few chords and she told Diego her favorite song was American Pie.
As a musician, I bear a heavy ego burden. Sometimes it seems I am of one mind, like a salmon chasing that high. But I remember how Diego directed our energy into… Continue

I was sitting in the tipi on a nice afternoon stringing my guitar when I overheard two of the kids outside.
First grandchild said, “So, what do you wanna’ do?”
Second grandchild said, “I know! Let’s dose Grandpa’.”
I thought to myself, Ha. Ha. Let’s dose Grandpa. Those kids don’t know Grandpa very well.
Just last week I was remembering the good old days. Those were the days of Timothy Leary and Owsley. We were the pioneers of a revolution. We traveled… Continue

Many of the videos I recently uploaded came from a site called, Today's Big Thing. I thought about adding the feed, so my guests can view their vids anytime. They are a collection from all over the web with a new one posted nearly every day. Some are fantastic, unusuall and often very funny. You will find "Today's Big Thing" on the left column of my page. Enjoy!

I woke up on the low side this morning. I checked my page and was hit smack in the face with this splash of love. It was better than an aftershave commercial from the '60s.
So thanks to everyone who passively or actively contributed to this unexpected blessing in perfect time.
I hope it works as well for you -- just when you need it.
I am anticipating a day of labor in the wet and cold, followed by a night in the warm and… Continue

I have been blissfully busy during the summer months, as I know so many of you were. I realized in August, that my picture still showed me standing in the snow.
This fall found me in the valley helping with the harvest and engaging many wonderful music circles in Eugene, Or.
Though I have been inside the grid for a while, I have not been focused enough to do any serious writing, although I have so many stories to… Continue

The Big SWitch to Jesus
I practiced Wicca for 25 years. I was a third degree high Priest in a skyclad collective training Coven. I was sold out to Wicca the Goddess and her consort. 12 to 15 years ago some one told me about the Love of a Almighty God who payed the price for my sins. I was trying to cut my Kharma by doing good and learning the lessons so I could evolve Spiritually and get off the Kharmic wheel of Life. We called this the Great Work....... the real meaning of the third… Continue

Okay, so I got word from fall 2009 Shawnee gathering. Apparently A camp has left, and the real festivities are just beginning.
I was asked to post information on this site as well as another before I take off myself, but I am having difficulties with Welcome Here. Apparently my account was erased there and now I cannot sign up again as the new security feature has a few bugs and does not refresh when a security code has been used. Can someone who reads this PLEASE repost on Welcome Here?… Continue

Misfit is the label given by society to those humans who don’t match the criteria for ‘normal’ behavior, beliefs and desires.
Most so-called ‘normal’ people accept if they are to sport the ‘normal’ badge, they will be required to shape themselves into psychological, career and social boxes that we know deep down are not contoured to the freedom, spontaneity and genuine expression of the individual spirit.

The Time is Now
When we moved out here to the edge of the Cohutta wilderness we knew we were
enacting the first stages of a vision , a dream of a better world through the
emergence of an indigenous consciousness in the mankind leading to a simpler
more earth-bound way of living.
Sounds grand, but like all visions they begin with getting off our backsides and
just doing stuff, sometimes not even knowing why, just because it feels right.

Has Land Got Feeling?
I have been on an earthly mission for most of my life.
I have always known somehow that the land is precious. I spent my childhood years hanging out on the reservation, in the forests and mountains. I have lived in the forest many times over the years. My experience has shown me over and over that the earth is my natural home as it is for all of us.
And NOW after spending twenty years in the asphalt jungle, I know that the time has come to… Continue

Someone who just joined a group we are in wrote something that really summed up what is going on today...deep in the hearts of most of us.
"I would love nothing more than to feel what life is supposed to feel
like. Western society is suffocating my soul. To the woods! "
It's likely, given the current economic situation in most of the western world, that the dream of a nice house in the suburbs, a steady job, good income, stores full of food, a car or two in the… Continue
