regardless of which specific Rainbow Gathering any of us went to this year - when the Great Spirit in infinite wisdom decided to break us up into a group of mini-Gatherings so our prayers could be heard from many different locations and directions all at once...
there are some very simple facts
1- our location decisions are ALWAYS made at Vision Council on the Land during the annual July Rainbow Gathering of the Tribes
2- many years there were people who disagreed with the consensus reached by those who attended the Vision
3- none of those disagreements mattered a damn, except that 2 years we had split Gatherings. the Kentucky-Alabama split and this year. and communication between the 2 camps that 1st split year resulted in a consensus that worked for everyone. this year the Black hills Vision Council invited and was attended by representatives from some of the other July Gatherings. other camps decided not to show Respect for Rainbow traditions and Council consensi over and over again from years past.

"In the City of God, St. Augustine tells the story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great, who asked him “how dare he molest the sea.” “How dare you molest the whole world” the pirate replied. “Because I do it with a little ship only, I am called a thief; you, doing it with a great navy, are called an emperor.”

Comes The Dawn
By Veronica A. Shoffstall
After a while you learn
The subtle difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn
That kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of a woman
Not the grief of a child
And you learn
To build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is
Too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way
Of falling down in mid flight
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much
So you plant your own garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers
And you learn
That you really can endure
That you are really strong
And you really do have worth
And you learn and you learn
With every goodbye you learn.

Oriah Mountain Dreamer (check out her website and blog and books) wrote this:
I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.
- Sarah Teasdale
