Dawn Song

Lights and shadows creep over the mountains at dawn
Bright colors slowly appear to illuminate this day
Every time the sun rises there is a new opportunity
To see clearly and to sing in harmony with all of nature

Rush

imaginary place

We flow between seasons, obligations and reasons
To rush from one moment to a never ending line of others
Our escape into imaginary regions preserves imagination
For the times that we can glimpse a reflection of eternity

Watch Party

Watch Party

Watchers

The night begins with music. Waltzes fill the air with sounds

The costumed creatures take their places whirling all around

The frenzy mounts to a crazy pitch while the watchers gather

To see the dancing figures form a circle and change to smoke from matter

The crowd disappeared beneath the dust and the flaming sky

Nobody bothered to look back or ask the question why

Stillness and sunlight fill the desert with color, revealing detail

Of creatures as they go about the business of living with extremes

Lizard lingers in the sun on a cactus, surveying the possibilities

Cosmic Weather: Precise, logical Mercury in Virgo meets up with foggy, dissolving Neptune in Pisces today (3:18 am), the ruler of the fishy sea, and the planet of our imagination and phantom representations (or misrepresentations, including deception), so our thinking, reasoning, communications, and overall mental alertness may be a bit askew now. Or, significantly askew! […]

Retreat

Retreat into the center to find the truth beneath the breath
The way is cleared, obstacles are removed from the path
In stillness.
The mind heals itself in silence.

Henry Nichols, 8th Great-Grandfather

September 6, 2019

My eighth great-grandfather was born in Glamorganshire, Wales in 1678.  Rev. Henry Nicholls received a  B.A.in 1703 and an M.A. in 1705 from Jesus College, Oxford, Wales. He was sent to Pennsylvania, 1702-1708, during the reign of King James II. In 1707 he married my eighth great-grandmother, Elizabeth Gatchell of Chester, Pennsylvania.

Henry Nichols was the first residential missionary to Pennsylvannia for the “Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts”, arriving in 1703. His churches were located in Chester, Concord, Radnor, and Montgomery. The Chester Church is described as of good brick fabric, one of the neatest on the continent, furnished with handsome furniture and rews. The members were regular and constant in divine worship, and they contributed 60 pounds a year toward their pastor’s support. The Radnor Church is still in excellent preservation, known as St. David’s Church and has been in use since 1708. Rev Nichols requested a transfer in 1708 and became rector at St. Michael’s Parish Church. Talbot Co., MD – a post he occupied until his death. For years, all records of his life were lost. The early church books had disappeared! Until June 1878 when workmen, employed to demolish the old church building, found his tomb under the Chancel in good preservation.

The following is a translation of the Latin inscription found on the slab over his tomb: “Here lies the remains of Henry Nicols, M. A., formerly a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, England, and a pastor of this church for 41 years – most unworthy. Born April 1st, 1678; died Feb. 12, 1748. Save his soul, O Christ for Thy own merits. Tread upon salt without savor.” (Henry has ordered these works to be inscribed before his death.) A number of his descendents still worship at St. Michael’s Church. They placed a tablet there to his memory where he ministered for so long. (From the Historical Magazine of the Protestant Episcopal Church, 1943, by Mary Clement, M. A., Principal of the Girls County School Board, Bridgend, Glamorganshire, Wales.)

Lesson

The author did not sign the work, but left it on the ground
At first nobody noticed when it came alive with sound
The colors became fluid, and the words escaped in flames
A violent rush of emotions turned assumptions into games
There was no time to interpret the truth it brought to light
The lesson arrived too late to stop the impending fight

The 5th is a Good Day To . . . let power flow where it will. Trying to control who or what has the juice will be unproductive, and for once, the social order may know more than we do about who should get to do what (and remember, seeing someone on top doesn’t mean […]
