Washington State – You Suck

I emailed Gov. Inslee and I don’t live in the USA. It is lunacy to murder 10% of Washington State’s ENDANGERED GLOBALLY wolf population for the sake of two calves. Wake up and get a clue!

From Predator Defence on Facebook:

“Defenders of Wildlife, or Defenders of Livestock?

If you’ve been following our posts on the tragic and outrageous wolf slaughter in Washington, you have to read this piece. It’s about one of the environmental groups that abdicated responsibility and “authorized removal” of the Profanity Peak wolf pack. What they have done is appalling.

Our director co-wrote this article with Marc Bekoff, a Huffington Post contributor, who also happens to be one of the most educated and enlightened scientists out there and, with Jane Goodall, cofounded Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.”

From Predator Defence Website:

“How You Can Help:

Contact Governor Jay Inslee immediately and ask him to stop the slaughter! Insist he halt the Profanity Peak Pack wolf killings now. Then spread the word to everyone you know who cares about wolves, wildlife and public lands.
~ Rally with us in honour of the Profanity Peak Pack and to stop future killings. Join us at noon at the state capitol in Olympia, Thursday, Sept. 1.

Lyrical ~ Sounds Of The Season

Yule and Christmas wouldn’t be complete without certain carols and hymns. Like a lot of us, I have favourites that must be sung by the voices that I remember from childhood.

Here are a few more that are the favourites I’m listening to get me into the celebratory spirit. I’ll bet you’ll love them too!

From Canadian Songstress, Heather Dale, the ‘Huron Carol’. This is Canada’s oldest carol and Heather’s interpretation in Wendat (Huron), French and English, mirrors the bedrock our country was built on. It’s gorgeous!

From the pre-Christian celebration of Yule, ‘The Holly and The Ivy’. This version is by the incomparable Annie Lennox.

This is my all time favourite Christmas carol and it’s been helping people celebrate since the 17th century. This version by Blackmore’s Night is wonderful. Sting does a nice one too.

If I want to be four years old again this is the song. I learned this in junior kindergarten and so did my two bébés, who both attended a French school. Il Est Né, sung by The Chieftains and featuring Kate and Anna McGarrigle – a perfect pairing of Canadian and Irish music.

Last not least, this fabulous version of ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ by Pentatonix. I love this so much, I can actually sing along with my bizarre soprana-contralta voice!

Hope you are all slowing, stopping, feeling completely and totally in the moment… this is the time and it wants all of us in it. Love, laugh, celebrate – completely.

Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: Wolf persecution is another tragedy of the commons

Please don’t click by Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Step up and call your senators. Contact information is in this reblog post.
Wolves are not the enemy. Stupidity and misinformation are.

“It is imperative that wolf delisting language, along with other harmful policy riders that weaken the Endangered Species Act, are kept out of upcoming government funding negotiations.” ~ Howling for Wolves alert.

Wolves are again the target of blood lust. This time riders are being attached to a must-pass federal budget deal. They throw Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming wolves off the Endangered Species List, permanently, and bar the courts from protecting them. The courts have been the only check and balance on good ol’ boy trophy-killing of wolves. The riders authored by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., endanger the authority of and scientific standards set by the Endangered Species Act as a safeguard for survival of species.

Please network the urgency of making calls to Johnson (202-224-5323 or via his website) and Tammy Baldwin (202-224-5653 or via her website

Full Corn Moon

Come to me on this full corn moon

I’ll be easy to find

Haunting the spaces of your heart

The ones that you can’t fill with any other

I’ll wait in the moonlight

Pulling those strings that you cannot cut

Woven of moonbeams and long ago dreams

It’s time to reap what we sowed so long ago

Under a different harvest moon

In a time ended too soon

Not to be eclipsed on this rotation

Or pulled back by planet clare’s gravitation

Elliptical, we cross again

Directly in each other’s path

Crash into me

Softly

In these fields of moonlit gold

Wonderful Wednesday

Not so wordless today 🙂

One of the first things I saw this AM and still making me smile – yes, I’ve watched three times already – I am a crazy Mumma Bear for kids.

WordPress won’t allow the posting of videos on plebeian blogs like mine so I posted it over on my Blogger site. It’ll be worth your finger twitch for the smile. Promise.

Happy Dancing Wednesday

Poem:
My Rebel Prayer

Think I’d rather risk a wrinkle
Than turn away from the sun

Indian, Thai and fajitas are why
Someone invented tums

I’ve yet to see a gal get a medal
For avoiding MAC and Revlon

Au naturel hair or organic
Doesn’t make you a better person

Just say “No” to crocs and ‘stocks
Why give up Converse and heels

And a minivan equals relaxed fit
Remember how a ’79 Berlinetta feels?

I adore you Mozart…
