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.

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 …”
BARTON HOLLOW — Civil Wars — Joy Williams — John Paul White

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

RENDEZVOUS — Music Themes

We are here, in this RENDEZVOUS, in the venue of our life on Earth.
TRIBUTE TO HOME — Injection — Hans Zimmer — Lisa Gerrard
4min. 48sec.

Pas de Deux – Rendez-vous
2min. 42 sec.

In what reality shall we RENDEZVOUS? When people meet in time, is everyone actually in the same place?

Yulunga = Spirit Dance — Australian Aborigine dialect
Not all RENDEZVOUS are as expected. The culmination of RENDEZVOUS created by deceit can be terrible.
BOAT TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS — Twelve Years A Slave — Hans Zimmer
5min. 15sec.

There are RENDEZVOUS which equal death and also the sum of life and purpose.
Go Forward — Whale Rider — Lisa Gerrard
5 min. 54sec.

But about that day and about that hour no one knows, not even the Angels of Heaven, but The Father alone
Matthew 24:36
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Les êtres humains ne peuvent pas apporter ce rendez-vous.
البشر لا يمكن أن تجعل هذا التعيين
Humans can not bring about this RENDEZVOUS. The RENDEZVOUS must come into being of a volition greater than our small lives on this beautiful shared planet.
No one knows the hour nor the day nor the appointed time …
Maddie’s choice for our next Music Theme is: PURPOSE
Lisa:  Lisa shares her heart and life… Lisa,
Willow:  MUSICAL THEME : …   … a very nice musical RENDEZVOUS
Almost every living being and even what we commonly think of as things longs for a RENDEZVOUS  with  circumstances that allow for some transcendent experience.
3min. 31sec.

We are all constantly engaged in the RENDEZVOUS of the NOW, a constant of eternally intersecting instances evolving from  and with all, infinite in number, in size, in smallness, in intersections of all being.
ARRIVAL AND REUNION — Aion — Dead Can Dance
1min. 41sec.

When I was ten, I had a teacher who said,  “In English there are seven verbs of being. Learn them.”
Perhaps she meant, as my classmates seemed to think, that these seven words should be memorized, as a short list, for a small quiz. Or perhaps she was letting the class know that these words actually were verbs, so that it would be known where to place them in sentence diagrams.

But to my hearing, the command “Learn them” meant much more.
For me, this moment was a RENDEZVOUS with the idea of language as a vector of transcendence.

Wishing for a RENDEZVOUS with what never was.
SEPTEMBER — John Paul White

The Civil Wars John Paul White and Joy Williams

Barton Hollow- The Civil Wars

The Civil Wars    Kingdom Come

Run, run, run away
Buy yourself another day
A cold wind’s whispering secrets in your ear
So low only you can hear
Run, run, run and hide
Somewhere no one else can find
Tall trees bend and lean pointing where to go
Where you will still be all alone
Don’t you fret, my dear
It’ll all be over soon
I’ll be waiting here for you
Run fast as you can
No one has to understand
Fly high across the sky from here to kingdom come
Fall back down to where you’re from
Don’t you fret, my dear
It’ll all be over soon
I’ll be waiting here for you
For you, for you
Don’t you fret, my dear
(Don’t you fret, my dear)
It’ll all be over soon
(It’ll all be over soon)
I’ll be waiting here
Don’t you fret, my dear
It’ll be over soon
I’ll be waiting here for you
For you, For you

Run, Run, Run Away
Run, Run, Run Away
