After a long "sabbatical" - I will hopefully be back blogging on a more regular basis. I make no promises though, as there are many demands on most of us at this time.
I have deleted many blogs, trimming down to a small number, a handful, to start anew.
I hop to also share more stories on the crow, and some ancient stories, such as the immortal sage-crow, who mastered the breath to diminish sorrow, illness and death; the first, heavenly hound, and heavenly canine guardians of foreknowledge, intuition or keen senses to aid us and the heavens.
Such wisdom tradition knowledge appears important at this critical time and transition.
It is said in the spiritual and wisdom-mystical traditions that when things appear darkest, an even "greater" Light is available, working to conquer the darkness, transform it, and enlighten us.
We are called to be aware of it, to work with it, and within it.
