"Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts...there is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature—the assurance that dawn comes after night, and Spring after winter."—Rachel Carson

Invitation to the Fountain of Lavender Butterfly Bee Tranquility

I love to garden, and as an animal communicator and animal shaman/healer I enjoy spending time in nature with All My Relations.

The large lavender plant in the back yard is currently in full bloom and is a beacon for bumblebees, honey bees and the rare butterfly. I revel in the scent of the lavender and the …Continue reading

This article was originally written in 2009 and appeared on my old website as the third of a series of three entitled “Answering the Call of the Wild.” It feels like the time is right to publish them again.

A Wildlife Thanksgiving

It’s Thanksgiving Eve, and the aroma of the old-fashioned pumpkin pie as it bakes is heavenly.

As we all know, Thanksgiving is a holiday that traditionally involves physically gathering with friends and family, and the celebration of abundance in the form of good things to eat.

Earlier in the day, as I completed tasks in preparation for tomorrow’s …Continue reading

Spirit is the Leader: Prayers for Standing Rock

This summer I had a personal experience involving poisoned water that caused me to be much more aware and grateful for the blessings of water every single day.

There were times that I had no running water (and that was not fun), but the absolute worst was when the water became highly toxic and vile tasting due to chemical leaching. I could not assuage my own thirst, that of my animals, or indoor or outdoor plants using water from the tap. We existed on bottled drinking water for weeks until the water could be tested and declared safe.

So when the protests camps at Standing Rock began coming to my attention I was personally in support of the mission of the water protectors, for in protecting water we protect All Our Relations (which includes us). …Continue reading

Inviting Flying Jaguars to Lunch

While dining outside earlier this week enjoying my bagel with smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese, a yellow jacket landed on my thumb. Apparently he had invited himself to breakfast.
