I joined Writers Cafe to inspire and be inspired, I hope you are looking for the same. I always review other peoples writing in return for a review (sometimes I am slow) and I look forward to any conversations inspired by our writing. If you don't plan on interacting or reading any of my work, please don't ask to by my friend.
I love nature, writing, reading, observing, thinking, music, dreaming, wandering and wondering...and I love the Sonoran Desert, this is the home of my soul.
Most of my poems are dream and nature inspired. Other poems are written out of sudden inspirations, if I believed in god I would call them visions.
I am also inspired by subjects concerning social justice and global environment, seems to me that this culture is slowly killing the planet...
All artwork or photos attached to my writing is my own unless noted otherwise.
You may find me out wandering in the desert searching for my lost soul...
"Today I am proud to say that I am inhuman, that I belong not to men and governments, that I have nothing to do with the creaking machinery of humanity - I belong to the earth" - Henry Miller
Here is some of the music I am currently listening to.
"When you give up on hope, you turn away from fear.
And when you quit relying on hope, and instead begin to protect the people, things, and places you love, you become very dangerous indeed to those in power.
In case you’re wondering, that’s a very good thing."
I am working on unlearning what I learned in school.
I'm looking for new ways to live that are in balance with the community of life around me. I garden, grow some of my own food, and support local farmers. There is so much learn about the natural world around us so I listen and observe, sometimes the earth speaks in wondrous ways. There is true magic out there, not the kind you read about in fairy tales and fantasy novels, but a real magic you can participate in, be part of. I am always looking for new teachers in my fellow living beings. I like to discover native plants that can be used as food, re-discovering the knowledge of our ancestors. Life is an adventure.
"We are stardust, we are golden, and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden" -Joni Mitchell
I'm learning to live at garden speed...

It is time for a revolution, to protect the Earth and all the living things, including humans...the destruction has gone too far. It is time to join others in fighting back...consider joining an activist group or your choice, such as the Deep Green Resistance: http://deepgreenresistance.org/
or start a movement of your own. If you write any revolutionary writing - I'd love to read it!
Note: I have turned off my read requests. That thing got way out of hand, I was up to 1000 or more, I couldn't keep up, has been causing me great stress to even try. I am going back to a system of reading in return for a read.
