i watch her brooding —
soft downy breastfeathers warming
nestlings still encased in fragile shells
her wordless lullaby as soothing
as the lapping of the water
and the rustle of our Father’s wings…

The water we hold sacred is not some abstract image or fantasy of Water, but the real stuff that we need to drink and bathe and grow our gardens, that provides the crucial habitat for fish and plants and thousands of other creatures, that is the Earth’s literal life blood.

In the armadillo circle, In that armour-plated set
The philosophy is simple, what you see ain’t what you get
In the armadillo culture, in that well-protected creed
a solid hide to hide in is the only thing you’ll need…

"Libraries still for me have this extraordinary charge…when I go in one I feel this buzz. It’s almost sexual, there’s something about the fact that behind all these bound copies there are voices. There are people murmuring to you, seducing you, dragging you into their world. These are wonderful, magical places…" ~Stephen Fry~
