Holiday escapees discovered.

These four turkeys come by every day, sometimes pecking at the sliding door perhaps thinking they can check out the shelter of the barn.  After all, it's been pretty cold this winter especially for March.  I saw a pair of osprey's in these trees a week or so ago.  A first!  Instead of dirty city snow, I get white country snow sprinkled with occasional feathers.

One more creative process

Kat led this workshop where 6 women each created her nature spirit using materials from the woods and paper mâché.  It was a bonding experience that brought a story from each of us.

Solstice 12/18

This picture was taken before the lights and candles were lit.  Our intentions were inserted in the Yule log and burned at the campfire with a group of 25 or so.  These are very meaningful ceremonies given by Ruth Zwald, a shaman practitioner in the Peruvian tradition.  There's always a wonderful potluck afterwards.  For those wishing to be a part of them, please contact me.  Space is limited and the group is growing.

Moose in the tree

Well, this day has come and gone.  It's now almost Thanksgiving and the trees are no longer dressed, the turkeys make their rounds, the deer leave their tracks, the owls hoot their mating calls, occasional wood ducks float on the pond and the moose dances in the wind.  My grandson, Tyler, sent me this moose.  He knows my passion for these northern beasts.  I hope to bring one here...she can take Zeppi's place.

Equinox Celebration



Once again, the Red Spirit hosted the equinox with 30+ people.  Ruth lead the ritual with her creative presentation to make it truly meaningful for each person.  Connect with nature, community, your deepest thoughts, add laughter, share delicious food and you will enter the dark season with hope, joy and peace.

Nature at work




Wasps thought the birdhouse was an easy way to make a new home.  Not!
Toad climbed the screen.  Because it was there, I guess.
Hummingbird nested in the very top of the trumpet vine.  Great view.
Turtle sunning on a log in the pond.
These are just a few of the many wonders of nature here at the Red Spirit.
This summer brought many diverse groups I've had the joy of meeting and sharing in the fun.

Just a couple of dishes I served for the shaman group.  I bake pies for local people and for vacationers to take home.  I enjoy making people happy about good food.  We all love to eat!
