Alternating realities. ..

Overnight shifts are great for reading.  I have been alternating every couple hours between the dystopian”wool” series on my kindle and studying Torah in my URJ Torah with commentary. ..

Its pretty amazing when I noticed that I was reading a paper copy of one of the worlds oldest texts…and a new story on one of the worlds newest!

Horns of Dilemma…not

Tomorrow I’m scheduled for the TPD physical and written exams…yet I’m not even sure I should bother. My desire to go south and contunue my old conmunity organizing work among my people (dominickers and eastern/ poarch creeks) won’t be ignored much longer I’m afraid. This new suggested book,  working title being Guide to Hybrid Peoples,  is exciting and the depth of community based resesrch I could do would be great.
I guess its time to do things that was on hold while I got Sehoy and Harjo raised up and married off the last few years.
Wrapping up this MBA the next few weeks is bringing up the depth of the cross road I’m at. Feels like the decisions been made really.

Let the Winnowing Begin!

Though mid february is still a bit away I’ve begun sorting thru the ten years of junk…
I’m doing all I can over the next eight weeks to spread out all the work associated with moving from oklahoma to Pensacola. If I get enough done over these weeks no one week will be a  ”hell week” like usual when moving. My dad will meet us in Pcola with the 5th wheel and set it up at the park. Five hundred a month for electric,  cable,  wi-fi and the like. It was the top rated park in Pcola so I’m hoping it’ll serve our interests at least the next six months lease-worth…
I never kicked it at Pcola beach…I hope its like Okaloosa Island was.
Being only a half hour from our tribal ceremonial grounds and a hour from the rez is going to be great.

Winters pall…

We in the depths of it here, the gray skies,  carpet of dead leaves,  short days followed by long nights.
I like the changes to the homes and streets that the holidays bring. All the iconography of thousands of years of human life represented by Christmas trees, channukah lights, and all the accoutraments of an excuse to celebrate something.
Sitting in the rocking chair by the furnace looking out the window at the gray eastern horizon studded with the bony fingers of the trees reaching upwards, the season has its own mood and rythym.
Thinking about the summer sun and sandy beach is easy now,  lol.
