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.

Perhaps Prairie Creek renewed us children as well as Mother?

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.
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

“…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 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
“Won’t do me no good washin’ in the river …”

The RIVERSIDE has been built up with civilization and the rivers themselves savaged by humans, even as we humans savage ourselves.

Suden AIKA = TIME of The Wolf   Korppi = raven
3min. 55sec.

ONCE UPON A TIME — Dreams And Imagination — Two Steps From Hell
Can there be a TIME without measurement? Does measuring TIME change the nature of its passing?  Does TIME even pass, at all, without measurement?
5min. 54 sec.

THE HOME THAT I WILL NEVER SEE  —  Hagalaz’ Runedance — Andrea Nebel
NEVER is a A TIME that cannot be.
4min. 22sec.

Vast forests with evergreen trees
Foggy hills the eye can see
The wind sweeps through a valley
That lies by the deep blue sea

A village from another TIME
Awakens with the misty dawn
This is my home my mind shows me
The home that I will never see

Small houses, carved in dragonheads and runes
The smell of tar and burning wood
Men and women breathe their souls to their craft
Some dancing to the lyre’s tunes

A young man wraps his arms round me
One dancing flame we came to be
The only vows I chose to know
This is the place I call my home

Oh, the vision tortures me
I will never really see
I will never smell its smell
Nor touch the face of my loved one

My village by the deep blue sea
Today an ugly factory
Oh, why has it become my fate?
That I am here one thousand years too late
THE WORMHOLE — Interstellar — Hans Zimmer

Den Pfad, begraben von der ZEIT  = The path, buried by TIME
4min. 02sec.

Ein heimlich Ort hab ich geseh’n
Im Walde schlafend die Steine steh’n
Der Nachtgesang hat mich hingeführt

Verwunschner Baum den Blicke fängt
Ein Raunen im verwachs’nem Geäst
Unterm Stamm, such unterm Stamm

Grabe mit den Händen aus
Der Erdmann klettert selbst heraus
Er weiß den Weg zum Labyrinth

Ei, da siehst du staunend an
Die Geister des Waldes erwachen dann
Kennst du’s Rätsel? Frag’n sie an

Dort der Pfad zur steinernen Tür
Die uralte Weisheit liegt vor dir
Dein Geiste ist der Schlüssel zu ihr

Im Traume, du erinnerst Dich
Kehrt zurück dein wahres ich
Verloren einst im Labyrinth

Verschlossen hab’n sie die steinerne Tür
Den Pfad, begraben von der ZEIT
Such in dir, mach frei die Tür

THE FINE PRINT — Music Themes

Lisa chose the theme THE FINE PRINT for this week.
The theme for next week is DRAGONS
Children must be cared for all day and all night everyday and every night twenty-four hours a day no matter what. Absolutely no matter what. It also absolutely required that this be done with good humor,  love and kindness,  gentleness, and all of the wisdom that can be mustered.

SLEEPSONG — Secret Garden
5min. 51sec.


Children must be cared for all day and all night every day and every night twenty-four hours a day by at least one impeccably trustworthy adult. No matter what.  Absolutely no matter what.

Who knows what the future will hold? Certainly, THE FINE PRINT says: The future will be brighter for children, and everyone, if you act with the welfare of children, and future generations in mind.

I have plenty of opinions about most things, and strong opinions about childcare.  Keep in mind my opinions are just that, my opinions.

MOVING MOUNTAINS — Nemesis — Two Steps From Hell

SARAJEVO — Max Richter
3min. 59sec.

“My dear love…”

Work, work, and more work and practice, and foot work and breathe. Plenty of restful sleep and a healthful diet are in THE FINE PRINT. With the Takitumu the flavor is so bold, it doesn’t seem like there would be any FINE PRINT. But there is.THE FINE PRINT of dance is discipline.
Takitumu Akirata Ou Ura Pau
5min. 22sec.

Most people are so distracted by the hips or the stories told by the hands that they don’t notice the essential FINE PRINT. Often the practice and stamina building work required to perform dance is not thought about by people observing. Have you ever tried to do a pliés? Try doing a set of pliés with your knees clapping back and forth like these men do. Strength and foot work and breathing and disciplined practice are the FINE PRINT in dance.

What are you nostalgic for? Who or what aspect of home do you remember with fondness? Do you feel nostalgia the almost or even the never was?

I wish for my past
Nostalgia for what was not
Unfinished dreaming
