they only get married once- and it hasta be THAT day?! maybe I can find some way to squeeze it into the day?

if not, TALK to the guy. take him to that great new restaurant. fill up his stomach well. fill his head up with good conversation. give him a warm place to sleep. have your kids coo, pur, smile & giggle a lot around him- be very charming-

and then get his ass back to b-more!

23. "women & nature"
In response to Reply # 20


          

it's fiction.

she's a great writer.

have you ever read anything else of hers? the poisonwood bible was her best work. the bean trees is very typical of her pre-poisonwood style.

she grew up in the south and has an amazing understanding of the nature around her. the poisonwood bible takes place in the congo. this book takes place around an isolated farming valley, and it traces the lives of threee women.

one woman is the forest ranger who lives on the mountain overlooking the town. kinda like a jane goodall type. one woman is an organic farmer below who has a big rivalry with an old man who lives next door. and another is a palestinian woman who moved onto a farm with her husband and was recently widowed and trying to figure herself out.

it weaves their lives through a great understanding of nature & interworks their sexuality through the nature around them as well.

was on Oprah's Book Club. I always wondered what that book was about. Oprah had some really good books in that club. It's a shame that she stopped it.

Tiharqa has been a close friend for the last couple of years- our sons play together...

What am I bringing? I participated in a ritual that Tiharqa performed earlier this year, so I have some items from that ritual that I will bring again, but the rest of the items I will gather Friday night. The only other thing I know I will bring is my Berimbau.

32. "that was my plan"
In response to Reply # 31


          

that's the only part that i can make

but i'm right near the end of my first trimester and truly pooped. the idea of another quick morning sick start with no nap possible during the day and a marathon wedding on both sides is really shaking me up.

it would be different if my husband wasn't working all day and i could expect some kind of a break.

it really depends on how things shake out tomorrow night and saturday morning. definitely if we are up and about by 8:30 on saturday we'll come up for it.

In response to Reply # 33


  

          

Take 95 north- get off at MLK/395 Exit downtown. Take MLK to you get to route 40. Make a left onto Rt 40. Take until you see Pulaski street, which should be the last exit before Rt. 40 becomes a street again. Make a left onto Pulaski street (you will be heading south.) You will pass Bon Secours Hospital. Keep going and you will see space on your left (it is an old factory converted to lofts and workspaces).

I'm sitting here debating if I want to go see Soul Live tonight @ 930. If it let out around 1a.m. or so, I would only get 5-6 hours before the lecture tomorrow, which would not be good.

w. the raspberry Afrikan outfit on, and gold embroidery? I was wondering if you were there or not, but I wasn't sure. I think I saw GL whiz in and out, IF she has short hair, and glasses.

The lecture was like a college class. I can tell that he was a professor. Some of the words he used are not even listed in my dictionary. What does crepuscular mean?

gettin into relics

yelling, screaming

what he was saying about birth year and personality

i've really noticed the water orientedness of my daughter and i since that day

and then the one in the belly is a nature oriented baby- and i can see that because of my strange obsession with trees and crickets lately

my husband's a two. anyone catch what that was? i think he was the earth- grounded & making people comfortable

anyway, that was the part that i really caught the most of in his lecture, and i was dissappointed at the time cuz i don't really tend to go for that kinda thing- seems like there's a sign for everything- but it's been dogging me since he said it

there was a really great conversation about applying the wisdom he dropped about the time that i left

it stunk to miss that, but my girl hit the point where all she could do was lie on the ground and yell about being tired and hungry (i had a pile of fruit next to the diaper bag that i forgot- relegated to feeding her veggie chips! what a tragedy!)

In response to Reply # 0


          

one thing i noticed about some is that there are a few different levels he communicates on

the first chapter of the healing wisdom of africa really blew me away, and on some level i felt like i needed him to return to that level and complete what he started in my head

the lecture seemed to me to be on the level of the rest of the book

when i left, the elder at the door asked me "did you get what you came for?" i've been really turning over that question in my head

at the time i thought i hadn't because i was busy chasing the little one around

but things that he said have been really coming to me over the week and changing my mind about what i saw and heard

In response to Reply # 0


          

someone asked a question about the fire ritual

he had said that the ritual should not be appropriated by westerners

on saturday, he let up and said it's good for some westerners

do y'all think he should have let up on that front?

i didn't because what i understand about his discussion of ritual is that you need to find things in your own life and context that achieve the goals of the ritual

i don't see how adopting another cultures ritual could ever be helpful, but i think it could be mistakenly used as a tool for unity in the diaspora

him recanting his views on fire ritual at all. In fact, that was the point at which he asked me what he wrote in healing wisdom. I told him, and then he said to the lady who asked the question, "Well, there you have it then. You see, I can't even remember what I wrote in my own book!" The audience started laughing, but the lady shot me a dirty look as if to say, "I was asking HIM, not YOU!"

Taharqa Kiambu, the coordinator of the Malidoma Some' lecture and ritual from 2-3 weeks ago, is under Dr. Some's tutelage, to become a shaman. He is trying to meet with Dr. Some' in Oregon, for a two-week training. He is looking for assistance to make this trip, in terms of donated frequent flyer miles, or monetary donations. Taharqa's goal is to use his training to bring aspects of indigenous spirituality to Baltimore. If you enjoyed the information that was disseminated during the lecture and workshop @ the Ancestors Living Theatre, please offer any assistance that you can, to continue this work. Taharqa may be reached @:

taharqa@ureach.com
410-566-4600
1-866-926-2378

Spoke to Tiharqa, and he is trying to arrange a workshop similar to the one in NYC (without the same price tag). Inbox me if you are interested.
