“It’s in the journey that we see there’s no destination

 

It’s in the journey we find our true love…

Well we don’t know where we’re going

Don’t know just where we’ve been

We gotta dig deep down inside…” 

---Martin Sexton “In the Journey”

 

It is said that one of the ancient customs of Norway was to plant a single tree in the middle of a farm or homestead as a marker… not only of property and family ties but as a reminder of humans’ place in nature. This tree linked the Norsemen to their beliefs and their roots. The “Tree of Life.” A mythological tree of power and beauty whose saga is one of the oldest in Scandinavia. Also known as the “World Tree” it was kept alive by three sisters of fate: past present and future using the waters from the God Mimir’s Well of Wisdom. The saga is often called the “Edda” or “Grandmother”…

“Take your clothes off! Everything. And get into my sleeping bag.”

John was pissed. I was freezing. Couldn’t stop shaking from the cold. But still I argued. “I’llll…. Bbbbbeeee…. Ffffffine” 

Ah… Mother’s Day. Another of those Hallmark holidays that demand our attention (in keeping with our mothers….) But this day wasn’t just invented to sell greeting cards and tchotchkes. It was Anna’s fault… uh… idea. After the Civil War Anna Jarvis from West Virginia decided she wanted to honor her recently deceased Mom Ann with a special memorial for her work with wounded soldiers and commitment to public health issues. Anna lobbied Congress in 1908 for a national day of recognition… they rejected it on the grounds they’d have to declare a “Mother-in-Law’s Day” as well.

This week’s Riff going wherever she goes

Hope it flows

But this is what I chose:

Sing a song of Prince 

Elusive purple rainmaker he

Sang from his heart and hips

Sending up rips on sexuality

Carnality and love divine

Ahead of the time 

Making rhyme rhythm and love with abandon

Yet with a strict hands-on gleam of perfection

Studio tight

Music his life
