I got guns in my head and they won't go
Spirits in my head and they won't go
I got guns in my head and they won't go
Spirits in my head and they won't
I been looking at the stars tonight
And I think oh, how I miss that bright sun
I'll be a dreamer 'til the day I die
But they say oh, how the good die young
But we're all strange
And maybe we don't wanna change
I got guns in my head and they won't go
Spirits in my head and they won't go
I got guns in my head and they won't go
Spirits in my head and they won't go
But the gun still rattles
The gun still rattles, oh
I got guns in my head and they won't go
Spirits in my head and they won't go
I spent a lot of nights on the run
And I think oh, like I'm lost and can't be found
I'm just waiting for my day to come
And I

Even though this post is 4 months old, it is really nice to see you posting ptsum. I have missed the circle. I need to visit this thread much more often.

I haven't been as active on the forums the last year or so due to (mostly) school - one more semester to go. Wish I had done this 30 years ago - or rather wish I had the clarity of what I wanted to be when I grew up 30 years ago. Better late than never though.

Happy Tuesday and blessings to everyone.

here is a little something to think about... The Promise of Tomorrow; The promises Creator gives us comes with every new day, the gift of breath, the gift of life, opportunities and a vast array. How do we count our blessings, through the choices life can bring? Is it through joyful lessons? Or the fears to which we cling? Are we learning to show gratitude, for the victories over human pain? By honoring the ceiling choices, we grasp the will we've regained. Can we change our focus, with no need to defend? Acknowledging joy and sorrow, without judging flow or friend? tomorrow promises the fullness of every human way to know; how we master each challenge determining our balance- reflecting how we grow.

The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself.

Been some time since folks sat around the circle. I've unfolded a few chairs, built up the fire, and put water on to boil.

Been a long winter here in the boonies. Spring flirted a couple of weeks ago, then spun on her heel and flounced for parts south. So, still lots of snow on the ground and the lake remains frozen solid.

But I'm grateful for a warm house and confident Spring will find her way back.

Yup. it will. Had a little flush of asparagus and then a frost. It has started back up and promises to be a good season.

By coincidence - or maybe not? - I broke out my own Native American flute this afternoon (after months of sitting in storage), and let some improvisation inspiration flow Such a wonderful, mellow, and peaceful sound. Very meditative. Passing the breath of life through aromatic cedar, to produce tone and music. Transforming a small part of a tree into use for melody. Kinda cool when you think about it. Wood, air, music. The sacred circle is quick and easy to set up. No electricity, no costs, completely portable, etc.
