For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Contemplating Dinosaurs, Feeding The Inner Child

November 8, 2013


A trip to the dinosaur exhibit at the museum has always been a cherished experience. Carefree childhood memories of my dad taking me to see the dinosaurs since I was six years old. I remember that moment as a child, standing there, looking up in awe at Albertosaurus towering over us.

I still visit once a year, alone, sometimes on my birthday. I sit, meditate, contemplate Albertosaurus and the other fossils, connect with my inner child, and escape for a few moments from the stresses of adulthood.

Dreamcatcher Of Alderville First Nation

November 7, 2013


Dreams play a central role in the spiritual life of the people of the First Nations. The belief is that dreams are given to us by the Creator. Yesterday I acquired my first dreamcatcher. It is made by Alexis, an intuitive and creative woman, married to a Mississaugas* chief and living in Alderville First Nation. I had the best sleep in weeks. The Creator gave me brilliant dreams.


A First Nations legend tells that all dreams are caught in the web. Good dreams find their way through and bad dreams are trapped until the first rays until the sun destroys them.



In some Native American cultures, a dreamcatcher is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher is then decorated with sacred items such as feathers and beads. Wikipedia

It is not unusual in First Nation spirituality for a dream to plot the course of a person’s destiny, guiding them along their path to their place in life. ^
