Hi everyone!! I’m back again… took a day off there. Anyhoo… today’s post will be short and simple it’s just a repost of a letter that appeared on my Plurk timeline and one I had re-plurked. I felt it was important enough to post it here as well.
Please do take a moment to read it, and also take a moment to say a prayer for our sweet Mother Earth… especially today on Summer Solstice Day. Thank you everyone!!! MUWAH!!

This is an open letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse (Present Chief and Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nation of the Sioux):
Gulf Coast Oil Spill – Sioux Prayer Request
A Great Urgency
To All Nations
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.
We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affected from the oil disaster in the Gulf.
The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.
I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.
I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc’I Maka).
We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.
As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.
So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children’s future and well-being, and the generations to come.

/me smiles and waves hello
Hey there friends, lovers, and strangers!!! So nice to have you back again!! Today the BBBC question is:
Hmmmm let’s reflect here a moment. Well I haven’t really been spending a lot of time in SecondLife lately. I’ve been kinda busy with my First Life, but I am grateful for Plurk because it helps me to maintain contact with my SL friends and more. OK so that would be number one then. My Plurky pals are definitely a positive thing in my life right now that counts toward SL and FL. They seem to be there with a warm (cozy) and a (girlkiss) or maybe a (banana_rock) or two just when it is needed most. It’s amazing how much those silly little yellow plurkicons can brighten your day and make you smile.
For number two (although in my heart this is the number one thing) I would have to say my new relationship with my sweetie. We first met in plurk and then developed our love affair in SL and now we are bringing it full circle to FL!! (warning!- take out your hankies for this next part or keep the barf bag handy- I’m gonna get mushy) He totally rocks my world!!! All my worlds!! I have never met a man like him so far, and I most certainly have never had a relationship that even comes close to what this is! (trust me that’s a lot! I ain’t no spring chicken here, been on the farm for over 44 years now y’know!) He makes me anxious to wake up in the morning so I can talk to him and I love to wait up at night for him to wake up and tuck me into bed for sleep. He makes me smile, and laugh, and cry, and love! He is most definitely the most special thing in my life at this time! (see aren’t you glad I warned you about the mushy part! I know riiight!!! LOL)
This brings me to number three which kinda has to do with number two as well. I am thrilled to be moving across the world to share my life with this new man! He lives in Europe and I live in the Unites States, so if we want to be together (which we really do) then one of us has to move! Since he has some obligations right now where he lives and I’m unemployed at the moment (and adventurous), it just seems natural to be me!!! I’m very excited (and nervous) to be moving to a new country and learn a new language while experiencing a new culture. This is positively the most positive thing that has happened to me ever in any of my lives!!!
Ok, I think I gushed enough now! LOL Hopefully this answers the question of the day for all you fine readers! I’m also very excited to be participating in this project!!! This looks like it’s going to be a very positive thing for me as well!! Ooops that makes four things then…i hope that’s allowed…Alicia, is it OK to have four??? LOL
Just remember that when everyone around you is frowning just stand on your head and they all turn to smiles!!! Keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart and then people won’t mind if you just laid a fart! 😉 LOL See you on the grid!!! Hugz N Xxxxses!!! MUWAH!!!!!
