Life is a flurry of activity here on the Island.

It seems that the decline of hot sunny days has brought people out of the oceans, lakes, rivers and woods (quite literally), and into community minded activities. Canned goods trading parties, birthday parties and Halloween costume parties are in my plans for October. How about you?

Some links that are provoking consideration and thought in me this week:

Such a beautiful and searing account of one woman’s grief, and healing.

I appreciate this well-considered description of intuition, from a tremendously interesting man.

Brief but intriguing. A worldwide gathering of shamans, in Siberia.

Let me know what you think, and until next Sunday,
