Words to Consider

  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Trudy Abernathy Neill

Hi Anita, I am so glad to read this post. I am a firm believer in visitations....and have experienced them myself. They give us hope and something to hang onto. There has not been one day since his passing that I have not thought of you and prayed for you. I knew how hard the holidays would be this year. I do hope you and the animals are well and staying warm. You were lucky to have had the chance to marry John and find such a fellow soul. Still say I wish we were near to help you. Love, Trudy and Dave.


Echoing what Trudy said & please know that I am REALLY glad to see this post because I've been worried about you. I, too believe in visits from those who have crossed over. My grandparents (the Comanche ones) crossed in 1960 - 2 days apart - when I was ten. I've NEVER been 'officially' visited by my Kaku but she is always with me. However, my grandfather has visited SO many times over the years. I always know when he's around because I smell the sage & sweetgrass first, then the wood shavings (he carved things) before he ever 'speaks' to me. I'm GLAD John visited you. He will again - many times. Maybe he will come to you different ways, but you'll learn to recognize him in all the ways. I LOVE you. That's for all time, my friend!

My dad visited me after he passed away to say everything was okay. I was asleep and I woke up and I swear he was in the room with me. It gave me such peace. I was so saddened to hear of your husband's passing but he will always be with you in your heart and soul.

I was visited by a dear friend after she died, so I do believe John visited you, too. Sending much love.


Echoing what the others said, Anita. Take good care.

Dear Anita, visiting here after a while away and am only just picking up the shock of John's death. I'm so sorry, and like others, I do believe this was a visitation to share the beauty.
Thinking of you.
