The Truth About Cancer

Hi everyone,

We’ve all had family members who have died from cancer. Many of us probably have friends and family who are battling cancer right now. The statistics are grim here in the U. S. : one out of two men and one out of three women will be afflicted with cancer in their lifetime. That’s why, when this series came up, I was determined to take the time and watch. My only regret is that I wish I would have shared this sooner, as the nine episodes have been airing, one a day, for free. I was caught up in a lot of projects, though, and it didn’t occur to me to share as a blog post until today – although I have been sharing on Facebook and on the Greenwoman Publishing Facebook page since the day the series started.

All I can say is that this series, created by Ty Bollinger, is absolutely transformational. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing the series and telling all your family and friends about it.

You can still watch the last three episodes for FREE, but you have to start today. Today is Episode 7 – sign up to watch it here! Each episode has been an hour and a half and chock-FULL of valuable information on natural cancer treatments (herbs, foods, oxygen therapy, heat therapy, etc.) that have been proven to work! You will see many testimonies from those whose lives have been saved when there was no hope. There’s a lot on nutrition, a lot on all kinds of many kinds of healthy living strategies – what you can do on a daily basis to transform your life in a healthy way.

Again, this is more than a must-watch. This is a “must-incorporate into our lives and share”!

On Fire Orange Legs

Rock Wall in Suburban Woods

Stones in the wall nest with each other
as communion comes in touch and quiet.

The moss earns its way in solace
giving seasons a green to measure.

An ensatina salamander slips
from the verge of stone and mud

on fire-orange legs in the dark
and scrabbles for spiders and slugs.

Breathing through skin, hidden
under a rock roof, moss for a rug,

and silence as its hiding place.

Strawberries Half-Drown’d in Cream

Because it is May and the flowers are stirring, because I am in a celebratory mood today, because I am naughty, because this was one of my favorite poems (though we didn’t go over it in class) as an English major at CU back in the day, because Robert “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may” was so cool, because there is so much botanical imagery in this poem!

Enjoy – and I hope you all have some sexy plans to celebrate the merry month of May.

Upon the Nipples of Julia’s Breast

HAVE ye beheld (with much delight)
A red rose peeping through a white ?
Or else a cherry, double grac’d,
Within a lily centre plac’d ?
Or ever mark’d the pretty beam
A strawberry shows half-drown’d in cream ?
Or seen rich rubies blushing through
A pure smooth pearl and orient too ?
So like to this, nay all the rest,
Is each neat niplet of her breast.

—Robert Herrick

April Musings

Tulipa 'Apeldoorn Elite', Hybridized by J.S. Verdegaal, 1968

Tulipa ‘Apeldoorn Elite’, by By Jerzy Opioła, via Wikimedia Commons

April Musings

No rain today, a break
from weeks of showers.
A slight headache.

I could have raked up
alder catkins or
plucked off spent daffodils.

I picked up most
of the twigs
that windstorm tore down.

An orange and yellow
tulip opened. The roses
are shooting out new thorns.

I swept up dog hair and dirt
and wrote a poem,
not a good one,

one without wind,
or dirt, thorns or rain.
It feels of old daffodils

and dogs settled into naps –
a comma for the big dog
and a dash for the terrier.

The Gifts of April

The Gifts

April’s garden fraught with scent,

Spring’s gift until the blooms spent.

The jewels of nature, flora crown,

Bespeak a world of grace renown.

(April 28, 1990)

A year or so ago I thoroughly enjoyed Nathan Crane’s documentary series The Search for Sustainability”. (Check out the trailer on the link!) I found myself excited to see so many groundbreaking ideas and practices—I learned a lot and was introduced to many kindred spirits, those who want to work to make positive change in this world. Because of that introduction to the Panacea Community, I am thrilled to share information about another series that’s beginning this week, the Unify Summit! This summit is about: “Inspiring and practical wisdom for living with more abundance, meaning, love, health, and unity with advice from more than 12 world-renowned teachers.”

Mark your calendars and join me – starts Wednesday!

Attend the Unify Summit online for FREE.

April 19-26, 2017

Awakening Spring

Primavera_04

Detail of the goddess Flora from Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera (also known as Allegory for Spring), circa 1482. The painting is said to depict over 500 identified plant species, with about 190 different flowers.

 

Awakening Spring

Spring walks in on fog-bound feet,
Down country lane and busy street,
Touching trees and earth-bound bloom,
Dispelling snow and winter’s gloom.
She wakes the crocus from their sleep,
And hears the cherry gently weep;
Her hands caress my garden’s face,
And turns it now to flowered grace.

(March 20, 2004)
