Bull

I’m going to get in my truck and drive to Maine real soon.

Right now, there are some new mugs coming out of the studio. Made by me.

Did you know that the Durham, NC flag has the constellation of the Pleiades?

I read here that Durham likes the bull and pleiades because the town began on my birthday, April 26, which is in the sign of Taurus. Fancy. The star system Pleiades is in the constellation Taurus. Some of us know the Pleiades as the 7 sisters. That’s how I learned about them, while lying on the snow between sledding down the hill as a child. My childhood friend, Melissa and I talked about the seven sisters a lot. Kind of like they were our friends.

The bulls and stars will arrive soon.

The bulls and stars will arrive soon.

Fun facts about the Pleiades:

1) If you want to ask them a question, you can go to Raleigh and hear them speak. I went by accident one time and they blew my mind, plus answered one of my life’s most persistent questions even though I had asked some other lame thing that I don’t remember.

2) Around here, in NC, USA, they come around on the dial and are easy see them in the winter time.

For now, time to get a handle on it.

Pottery Cuties

Excuse me while I go away for some moments. I’ll be back.

In the meantime here are some sweet mugs that I just made for a family reunion… plus a poem.

Each cup has a logo for the family. The picture here shows only part of it because it’s top secret.

 FLOWER NONSENSE

I heard tell that if a body

places her nose in a flower

that some magic will occur.

A moment where all is well,

oceans are cured

souls twangled

in a bliss that makes

eyes roll upwards,

deep in their sockets.

There are some noises that tell us this poison

cure does not exist.

Instead theres

empty hands

soiled cheeks

bruised knees.

 

Let’s Independence Ourselves with Mary

I have visited some of the Marys in their new homes.

They are independent of me now. They don’t rely on me to govern, mold or in anyway fashion them.

So sweet to see them out and about.

I noticed they all had light connected from their crown to the sky

but not to the ground.

Because they are the ground.

The Marys, like the feminine form, are a vessel.

Some folks have been going on about the feminine being a place that you can create things.

I noticed that too. Especially when I got pregnant with a baby.

Theres more to it than making babies.

You can go see for yourself.

Its Mother. Feminine as a cauldron of fixing solutions problem solving fantazimo.

For Mother of God’s sake, don’t take my word for it. You can run off on your own and do it yourself. It’ll be great.

Because Mary doesn’t require us to seek anywhere outside of ourselves. She’s a portal, mirror, gateway, reflection to our selves. The original source. Of Creation. Creating. Creative. Let’s do it. And clean up this mess around here.

Hey there Mother Mary. Its through you I can experience my own creative generative self. Thanks.

Hey there Mother Mary. Its through you I can experience my own creative generative self. Thanks.

Today I Wash Woolens

And put them out in the heat of the sun. These past months I got distracted from housework by Mary. Somehow she’s been much more appealing than domesticity.

Even though I was busted by some 70′s feminists while speaking of the beauty and value women’s work in the 80′s, I do get side tracked from home economics. Most of the time.

Tracked to visions. Dreaming. Making. Here’s a bit more of what happened on Solstice at The Advocate.

The first stop on the altar tour was the heart pine door. When the sun shines through it looks like this.

There were people's feeling the drum from the floor.

She was in side of us.

And still is.

Now, I only know to tend to my house. Both my kids are home. What happiness. Dinner. The milk’s out again. Washing machine running full tilt. Hilarity on the porch. Mimosa scent up from the plank road makes me dizzy. Finally we have some smaller trees where I can get my nose right up in the blossoms.

Here’s a poem.

HAND SPARK

Let’s take a sip of sparkling something.

 And think of when our hands touched.

There was magic

of clay.

Right now

as we sit

theres reverberations

over lands and seas

waiting to return

be rejoined on

some rock

surrounded

by water.

Snapshots of Solstice

Not really conducive to words

is what happened on Solstice.

For funzies though, I’ll share what I experienced. There was a heap of drumming in the chapel. With the Marys all lined up. We brought in spirit from the north. And the people used their bodies to raise the vibration. And then connected it with the earth.

Amazing.

Here are some snapshots of the altar tour:

We Open on Wednesday

On Sunday we fired the kiln. It takes a few days to cool.

The ladies went in on Saturday.

Tim put the mud on the brick door.

It is true that the firing went smoothly. Even with two stokers who were not able to come at the last minute, somehow the kiln heard no such thing. Kept itself hot.

Early in the morning.

My maiden name.

Typically, in the last hours we work hard to keep the temps up. This time, we were having to sit around for seconds at a time to wait for the chimney flame to ease back into the bricks.

I sat on the dirt for a while while I stoked the side ports.

And the night came. 6 boards in at a time. The dragon took about 90 seconds to eat them up at 9pm

In between stokes we looked at the sky.  The river of fire was solid through the ware chamber and up the chimney.

Can you see him? Tim played for us while we laughed and watched the flame.

This is how it was meant to be done. Here’s a poem. About some elements. That we can use. Please join us on this Friday at The Advocate. We’ll use the Marys and drums.

FIRE SOUND

Your listening is clear.

Breathing up earth vibration

into water filled self.

these elements

Earth

Air

Fire

Water

are tools.

Please experience them as such

Use them breathe them

Heal your planet

as you sing their song.

Your hands beat the drum

that conjoins the forces

through sound.

Let the vibrations move out

acrost the globe

Sending waves of

balance union.

Rows of Marys

Gabriel spoke

to me.

And pointed to purpose.

Of warm moist insides.

Fertile grounds of mind.

Yin yang makings

that intertwine in a mind.

and heart.

A heart that was two

but is now sewn

together

with thoughts.

white and black

light and dark

boy and girl.

My Dears,

This can be done any old way. These two magical creatures when combined,

rock oceans, knit mountains, tie skies.

Let’s do it.

Mother Mary at Solstice

Dear Ones,

You are invited. To celebrate, activate, participate and expand the Feminine Divine. This Summer Solstice. Myself and about 30 others have designed a tour of the Feminine Divine for you. On a beautiful property in Chapel Hill.

There’s an old timey chapel there where I will display the new Mother Mary sculptures. Please come enjoy them. And take one home if you like. They are for sale.

I super charged them for you. They contain the essence of Mother. Nourishing. Intertwined with spirit. Portals to divine. Idols to connect.
