A discussion of poetic, ecological, synthetic, holistic world views - or lack thereof. In a world of fragmentation, isolation, and overindividualized pursuits, this is a place for the web of being.

New Year's Revolution
A very happy 2010 to all! I came upon this over the holidays and thought it would be a good note on which to start the new year. Hard to follow in everyday life, perhaps, but aren't all resolutions a bit of a challenge?
THE DRUID VOW OF FRIENDSHIP I honor your gods. I drink from your well. I bring an unprotected heart to our meeting place. I hold no cherished outcome. I will not negotiate by withholding. I am not subject to disappointment.
Some little things that go a long way: Pat the tethered dog shivering outside the store (if he lets you). Smile at a stranger. Read a poem and say 'thank you' to the poet (who may never know your gratitude). Share a meal. Renew your vows - with everyone who means something to you. And have a wonderful year of further adventures on this special planet.
