When I was a child, no matter how far away we traveled, my Mother would always gather us children and return to Prairie Creek to renew herself.

Prairie Creek was a deep slow-moving black water river filled with alligators and sometimes choked with invasive hyacinths, gorgeous with their purple blooms and glossy green leaves. Prairie Creek was always changing, always beautiful, much like my Mother.

Mother loved this ancient river, not to swim in, not even to trail hands in, and never to get too close to the banks.  In those days alligators particularly liked dogs and children for snacks.  Alligators, over sixty years ago, were also bigger than they are now.  Mother loved Prarie Creek, partly because the river was dangerous, with its water moccasins and gar fish and alligators, and alligator snappers (turtles), but also there were good eating fish, beautiful birds, wonderful plants and trees.

After good rains the water was clear and we could see the waving grasses and sandy bottom. During drier times the water was a deep dark red with tannic acid.  Mother took us children in the row-boat, when we were small, and would drift and fish.  Or more usually she would row up river and drift back.   She loved that it was soothing, but also that she had to stay alert.

Sometimes Mother would  go alone at night to gig frogs, particularly dangerous as alligators, and most other predators, do most of their hunting at night, too.  The next day she would fry frogs legs.  I could never eat them as they looked too much like Little People, to me.

For my Mother the times she seemed most happy were in Grandfather’s row boat on Prairie Creek or sitting by a small fire at Little Bear Lake.   These few moments, of her too short life, were when I was allowed to see her True Self.

BOAT ON THE RIVER — Styx
3min. 14sec.

_______________________________________
I was qualified as a Life Saver, just before I turned twelve, yet I longed not to save my own life, but to stay forever beneath the deep water where no one could find me. I wanted to sleep forever with my green eyes eternally open watching green water flow, never again closed and vulnerable; my long hair tangled with water grasses, holding me, keeping me invisible, unreachable. Safe.
OPHELIA —Kula Shaker
3min. 09sec.

“…I will lay beside the river now,
Forever and a night
Forever and a night…”
________________________________________
I was taught as a child, when we lived “Out West” that if I should become lost, to go downhill until I found water, then to keep following the current down hill. I was not told that it is possible to be lost on the RIVER as well. Nor was I told that a RIVER might be more than a RIVER.

Much of the water in the world is now contaminated, not only with natural parasites and toxins, but also with human introduced chemical run-off and tailings from man-made industrial enterprises including factory farms, mining projects, radioactive waste and petro-chemicals and coal industry wastes, as well as with human bodily effluvia, medical waste, and even kitchen and household wastes of seven plus billion people.  In some monstrous cases the water has been deliberately poisoned.

DIRTY FILTHY SOUTH — Rising Apalachia — Leah Song — Chloe Smith — Scott McKibben Photography
3min. 43sec.

This song and video offer a lyrical analysis of our southern regions and the onslaught of environmental abuses laid onto sacred lands. The lyrics touch on the Gulf coast oil spill, Mountain top removal, and fracking, and beg the question WHY is this south is so “filthy Dirty”. This video is filmed in Lake Verett, LA, thanks to Eye of the Crow videography, and was designed in conjunction with the Gulf Restoration Network at http://www.heathygulf.org. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to learn about land restoration, and preservation.   Rising Appalachia

In the end, not my Mother, not her dreams, not her memories, not even her beloved sanctuary BESIDE THE RIVER survived.  Beautiful Prairie Creek is no longer pristine, it has been dammed and some areas are permanently flooded.  There are subdivisions with paved streets, street lights,  and two car garages, all THINGS Mother aspired to possess.  She achieved that aspiration, for a while, but it was as sweet as bitter ashes.
BITTER ASHES — Blood of Angels — Nox Arcana — Michelle Belanger
3min. 48 sec.

Standing here stripped of everything
I have lost my faith it’s all bitter ashes
Standing here as the waters rise
All my memories swirling down the gutter

2 MIN. 22SEC.

Am I misguided if the DRAGONS that I slay are not the same DRAGONS that you want to be slayed?  Who is misguided? Must we slay our own personal DRAGONS, ourselves? Does the blood of DRAGONS have healing powers? If you slay your own DRAGONS, does that process provide healing? Can we help each other with the slaying of DRAGONS, or must we do it all alone. Must we give up if no one else understands which DRAGONS need to be slayed in order for healing to take place? Is accepting help part of healing? Is it the healing that is actually the reason for us all? Is it possible to live lives of love and service, even without being healed ourselves?

PURPOSE – Music Themes

Maddie chose the music theme PURPOSE for this week
__________________________________________
Must ones dreams be intact for there to be PURPOSE?
DREAM IS COLLAPSING —- Hans Zimmer — Inception
5min. 53sec.

__________________________________________
How do you know if what you are doing has PURPOSE? Are your activities just filling time for the PURPOSE of keeping busy? Must a life of PURPOSE have meaning that is understandable to others, or even to one’s self, to be worthwhile? Can we live worthwhile lives and not be aware of PURPOSE?
CIWENKIERTO — Tenhi
6min. 23sec.

“In traditional Finnish culture, the “tenhi” is an old sage or shaman standing at the threshold between this world and the next” http://en.prophecy.de/tenhi
__________________________________________
Can a life of good works be lived with love, and good intent, with PURPOSE, if all within is hopeless despair?
Hedningarna – Förtvivlans
2min. 14sec.

Förtvivlans = despair – Swedish
__________________________________________
Can a misguided life still have good PURPOSE? Am I misguided if the dragons that I slay are not the same dragons that you want to be slayed?  Who’s PURPOSE is misguided? Must we slay our own personal dragons, ourselves? Does the blood of dragons have healing powers? If you slay your own dragons, does that process provide healing? Can we help each other with the slaying of dragons, or must we do it all alone. Must we give up if no one else understands which dragons need to be slayed in order for healing to take place? Is accepting help part of healing? Is it the healing that is actually the PURPOSE? Is it possible to live lives of love and service, even without being healed ourselves?
BLOOD OF DRAGONS  — Nox Arcana
3min. 14sec.

__________________________________________
Is it enough that people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds can meet together to happily play music?  Must everyone first come to a consensus of the PURPOSE of the Universe, the PURPOSE of life, the PURPOSE of each other, the PURPOSE of religion, in order to come together for no other PURPOSE than to make music? Is music enough reason to put such disagreements aside?
Ja ämmät ne itki (perinteistä kansanmusiikkia) & Tampsi-Jaakon jenkka
2min. 30sec.

Ja ämmät ne itki (perinteistä kansanmusiikkia) = And they Wept (traditional folk) – Finnish

Maddie:  ♪Purpose – Music …
Lisa:  
Johnnie:  Johnny

Eva:   Purpose? Who has one? …

Willow:  Music Themes : Purpose!
___________________________________________
Has your PURPOSE in life been chosen for you? Has your PURPOSE in this life been pre-ordained? How much of your PURPOSE in this life is chosen by your self, how much by your circumstances? Are your circumstances created by fear? Is your PURPOSE guided by fear? What fears do you try to avoid? Are you afraid of hard work? Failure? Rejection? Loss of face? Truth? Not knowing enough? Pain? Success? Mediocrity? Loss of control? Do you fear surrender? Phobias? Illness? Getting old? Death?
FEAR — “Fear doesn’t shut you down.  Fear wakes you up.” —DIVERGENT — Hans Zimmer– Junkie XL
3min. 37sec.

__________________________________________
Is it our PURPOSE in this life to live and remain as pleasant and comfortable as possible? Is the work of the learning and experiencing, as a PURPOSE for life, more like the work of moving mountains than relaxing comfortably, or perhaps even existing in misery, while waiting for someone else to move the mountains? Perhaps our PURPOSE is to learn to ask? Perhaps part of our Earthly lesson is that we are unable to move mountains alone.  A large portion of our PURPOSE is to learn that we cannot do it all on our own.  We all need help. Some of us must learn humility.

___________________________________________
What are we looking for when we SEEK to open Pandora’s Box? Is there some knowledge that should be forbidden? Why? Or is it hurried and lazy or greedy applications, WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF CONSEQUENCES, that should be avoided?
PANDOR’S MUSIC BOX — Nox Arcana

____________________________________________
Can we ever know enough to SEEK ,to know more than echoes, shadows? Can we ever SEEK to know what is beyond that which is veiled in clouds? What is on the other side of cosmic clouds? Is the essence of beauty the same in all of the cosmos?
ECHOES —- Pink Floyd
16min. 39sec.

___________________________________________
Is it fear that we must first overcome when we SEEK to learn what is beyond our current understandings?
JOURNEY BEYOND — C. Nolan —Interstellar
7min. 42sec.

___________________________________________
Is it an act wisdom to SEEK the Apocalypse? Do not all paths lead to One? Are there not infinite possibilities in the Mind of God? Is it wise to SEEK the Apocalytic path we have been warned against? Should not everyone avoid instigating strange wars bereft of honor, fought for vengeance, selfishness, misunderstandings, madness and fury, personal gain or profit, and forced but false loyalties, the loyalty of fear?
APOCALYPSE  — Bear McCreary — Battle Star Galactica Orchestra

___________________________________________
Who or what is a Soul SEEKER?  Do you SEEK the SEEKER that SEEKS you?  Is this all that our small minds can perceive; illusion, shadows  and veils?

What must we SEEK to escape in this life?  What must we SEEK to accomplish in this life?  What must we SEEK to preserve in this life?
