Sailing
Whitewolf and I got the pail and soap sponges and got the hose to clean out the Catalina 14 sailboat to get her ready to go out on Clear Lake before the rains came. We had fun squirting each other and finally did get the boat clean, Optimistically we set out to put her in the water. As we got to the boat launch on Clear Lake it began to rain and the wind came up onshore to about 20 knots. Even though i have been sailing onboard 40 ft mas o menos sailboats in the Caribbean, exico and the South Pacific, I felt unsure and hesitant to go out that day. Whitewolf wanted to go so in putting up the mast he dropped the cotter pin which held the mast upright. I took that as a definite sign to stay out esp since the winds continued to rise and the rain came down heavier. So we rolled her out and decided to look into taking a sailing class this winter in Florida.

Beautifying Spring Valley
OH my Goddess…I tune to the wisdom, protection and shelter of the grandmother Oak tree under which is the white wolf statue that was given to Whtewolf……she is home to many beings.She holds the land…
She assists me as I unpack a box of treasures and run thru the house and put up a Tibetan temple hanging or the celtic flag with the red dragon on it and Cymbrie, Welsh for Wales. It’s uncanny how much Whtewolf and i mirror each others lives…..we are both unpacking boxes of treasures, kitchen stuff, books we haven’t seen for over 5 years…so maybe i ought to just let it all go…it is tempting to open each box and sort and amaze at all the suff I have collected from all over the world…hmmmm we’ll see what I end up doing with it all…

Handfasting ll
Whitewolf and I ,soaking in the warm waters of Sierra Hot Springs, renewed the second of 3 Handfasting Bondings in the Celtic tradition for a couple. Yummmmmmmm…hmmmmmmmmm
This year has been different than the others before we were married. We did fall into the pitfall no no more dates…and I am happy to say that we have a date nights now. Lots of lessons of how to live with another being who also has wants, needs, desires, …and guess what? sometimes his are different than mine? hmmmm we have butted heads as well as soared to the heights…and everything I believe in between. Thank the Goddess for other sisters who share with me their experience with their mates…Thank you Spirit for sisters who share, care and dare …..

The Dogs-Rosie and Little Deer

Yes, you read that right. Picked them up November 3 on a Wednesday.The dogs….Rosie, a 6 lb. black squiggly, joyful bundle with a white left paw and a painting of white on her chest and cousin of the taco bell chihuahua..what was the cute saying he said? Yet totally a quiet, shy, fearful guy who just wants your lap to sit in. I am excited and “what have i done?”feelings. reading lots of dog books.
even though this is dog number 8 and 9..There are all these new ways of being with dogs by understanding their point of view.. From there creating a balanced environment together where we can enjoy each other’s species.
Ceaszar Millan who encourages you to commit to walking/bicycling, skating with your dog at least 2 hours a day in the AM and PM..then feed your dog..then play train etc…check his website out..i like it also Dr. Pictarin on dog nutrition..making healthy dog powder out of kelp, brewer’s yeast, bone meal, lecithen…worrying that they aren’t eating or drinking much yet..

Inner Life
Being here at Spring Valley, Tierra Buena, is a great opportunity for me to go within and heal those parts of me that take things personally, that erupt into anger, that feel useless and unproductive to society and myself…Wow yeah the Dali Llama sits on my right shoulder with words of encouragement. I do believe we pisces are forever absorbed in who we are or are not…hmmmm Then there are the days when the tree clearly speaks to me, that I have the clarity of what is next, that I feel the spirits of the native ancestors who walk the hills..that i dance around the house singing..and the beauty is Whitewolf he know those places also. It is our strongest link.


Blessings and many hugs, Alicia Merlady
