time construct

Time is real. Time is a concept. It is all relative.

Where do you stand in this debate?

The Persistence of Time by Salvador Dali 1931

How do you approach time?

What is time to us? How does time feel?  How is it measured?

spring yet to come

We are going through the motions of celebrating a spring that has yet to come. 

Winter White over the Hudson River

Tired and weary of winter - the magic has gone out of the fluff and cold. 

Even with the days growing longer - the chill is still too nippy in the air. 

Warm yourselves up on some spectacular photos from a late Easter weekend post. 

For #wonderwanderwomen Mother Nature had her April Fools Day fun on our behalf.

NYC March for Our Lives

As we sit in the sweet quiet of the day's session of the nine month Integrative Sound and Music Institute certificate program at the New York Open Center, the world spins on.

The streets of New York City are overflowing with dissidents protesting a collective call to action against gun violence. More than 800 March for Our Lives events took place in cities across America and dozens of locations overseas in sync to occur at around the same time.

March Madness

Once again the heavens have lined up a spectacle.

The Pisces New Moon on March 17. Imbibed with Chiron’s healing influence. It claims to be the best opportunity for wound-healing we will receive throughout this entire year.

A temporary portal that allows us access to the darkest parts of our soul. We have to take a deep breath, be willing to be vulnerable, and bravely dive in to the core of our being.

The Spring Equinox on March 20. On this day Light and Dark are balanced. The goddess Persephone arises from the Underworld and brings back life to the northern hemisphere.

The Sun rises due East as it begins its ascent into the northern hemisphere. Aries, the first cardinal fire sign brings back the fires of life to us.

Take time today to meditate, journey and dream about what new life you want to bring into the world this year.

Mercury Retrograde starts on March 22. Luckily all the Mercury retrogrades this year are in fire signs. This will aid us to curb our enthusiasm so we feel and think before we act.

March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day. A traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for
missionaries worldwide.

Time to spin some magic.

war of art | Oscars 2018

This is reposted from the wonder | wander | women article on Medium.

Art imitates life and at the Oscars. This year more glaringly so in all the issues raised and celebrated by a select community that the world looks to as its microcosm.

Amidst the hooplah and bright lights of the Oscars both rising and reigning stars raised their voices and bent our focus on issues and concerns that have been troubling us all.

homeland hues

On the eve that celebrates the original 1986 EDSA Revolution in the Philippines, it's heartbreaking to admit that this historical moment of dissent has not led our country out of the loathsome corruption we inherited from the Marcos Martial Law days.

Fat chance relocating to the United States did, now that Darth Cheeze Wheeze Trump has brought this once great country to its knees. We can only hope we recover when he's relegated back to his gilt lined tower.

Happy Presidents' Day

Presidents' Day is an official federal state holiday set to honor all who served as President of the United States.

As a newly minted citizen of this grand country, I am proud and honored to have spent eight of my ten years here with the Obamas.

On Feb. 12, 2018, the National Portrait Gallery unveiled the commissioned portraits of the former president and first lady.

Barack Obama's painting by Kehinde Wiley and Michelle Obama's by Amy Sherald mark a high point in our history and highlight our humanity.

Each and all four are shining bright beacons of what it takes to be an excellent human being.

The Obamas made history as the first African American president and first lady. They won our hearts as they exhibited all the grace and elegance humanly possible in the execution of their public office.
They are universally loved and admired for their innate mindfulness and compassionate natures.

They make us all proud to be a part of this historical moment in all our lives.

Check out some of the highlights from the event, and see the painting in person at the Smithsonian Museum.
