Words to Consider

  • I bind myself today to the Holy Powers: Their hands to guide me, Their wisdom to teach me, Their ears to hear me, Their words to give me speech, my heart always to love Them. —Galina Krasskova
  • "Not to hurt our humble brethren in fur, feather or fin, is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: to be of service to them whenever they require it.” ~Francis of Assisi
  • Tikkun Olam (roughly translated, I understand, as Heal the World)
    “It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it.” –Rabbi Tarfon.
  • "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

Great photo! You know it might not be a bad thing that no one reacted. My dogs would have chased that thing all over the house and it would be bedlam trying to get it out.


HOLY POSSUM! I would have had a MAJOR fit! You are one calm, level-headed lady! I'm shaking just thinking of finding a possum in the house. Don't know why those things creep me out but they DO! Shudder!

Our possums hiss, or more like blow. I almost stepped on one in the dark one night and he blew at me. Scared me half to death.


My word - you must be calm to have found the camera and snapped these shots! As for the cats protecting you - we had a squirrel come in once. Cats were not concerned or interested at all.


Oh my!!! For whatever reason I find possums just a bit creepy. Outside is plenty close enough!


Had to get my daughter (now 21) in the room to see these photos...she once had a friend baby possum who lived in a tree outside our old apartment. She named him Pinky and we left dog food and he actually grew and I guess lumbered off for a grander life. But she saved him from attacking crows one time by lobbing kitchen items out the window at the crows (!) and it is still a story she tells proudly to this day.


Oh, my gosh, what a shock to see the possum. I have never seen one, but there is something a wee bit scary. Isn't this what Perkins caught in the old Spin & Marty shows? It seems like he called it something else??
