This past week, Arya and Amber have been in Cornwall, so have been putting time and quiet to good use. Making, mainly, ingredients to develop new forms of Gold Orgonite.
This piece started inauspiciously, but built to a crescendo of happiness, once it was all set and seemingly very joyous. These past days, have offered spells of moderate temperature, so thankfully some new creative energy has flourished.
Can’t wait to get all the ingredients in symphony!

Forever in the hearts, of English, we witnessed her struggles, with a heart and spirit of a pure Princess, Mother. Truly a sad day in English history, though a search for her lead me to a page suggesting she is still alive, that is a very consoling thought I choose to believe.
My own Mother, Mother Teresa, Lady Diana, three pure Angels in my heart. If my (our) children imbue the merest hint, of these women’s Spirits, blessed we will be.
As a teenager, my parents had mostly cut my strings, let me discover me, however my mother would insist on certain things being observed.
One such thing, my debt will never be fulfilled for, was that my mother through very tough times for herself, sponsored children in Africa.
This, “do at least some good, as there’s always someone worse off’ perspective, is a life anchor that is soo profound. We used to get letters of thanks, describing how my mothers help had allowed such incredible changes, allowing the comfort of basic food provisions, water supplies.
For a teenager, this worked like Churches never did, this gave me an IV line directly into my heart and soul, no huge distraction of Church, at around 14-16 my mother Sponsored Gideous (Ethiopian), he wrote quite touching and beautiful letters of thanks, we felt immediately he was like a part of our extended family.
With my mothers help, his village gained key provisions, allowed Gideous hope and freedom from soo much disquiet lacking food and water, storage, tools, brings.
After around two years, ActionAid wrote my mother, the saddest letter I ever read, that bandits had raided his village, destroying most all the structure recents times had given him, so he was to leave education, and, sadly couldn’t accept my mothers sponsorship, given it was for this purpose, my Mother wrote back that she would continue his sponsorship until adulthood, in whatever form he felt to use it.
We literally had debt collectors at our door, in our house, yet my mother still preserved her Sponsorship, wow!
These things, were soo inspiring, all the videos, articles, scenes of Poverty, never comes into your home, like once you care for a human and invest in them.
This led me to seek to nurture that caring side.
My mother, and all mothers, you are incredible. Don’t ever forget this.
When travelling India, had a big Rucksack, and a small sports bag. After a couple of months or so, we were headed from Rajastan to Madras, so headed to Ahmedabad station.
At the station, we got on the train, placing our rucksacks on the ’Top Bunk’ to preserve our bed on the 50hour trip. Foolishly, it seemed on immediate reflection, I did not lock my rucksack to a bar.
Noticing there were Sikhs in the Cabin, I had moved out, to the single seats past the walkway, to have a cigarette, before we set out on our journey. Having grown to love the train journeys, as much or more than the time between, this was a nice moment, see India alive in all it’s glories, in the cabins (second class sleeper, every time) the stations, the country between stations. Here was my quiet teachings, and chaotic (food at stations, chi wallers).
So, having had my cigarette, venture back to the cabin, to notice my rucksack has gone! Oh no, my stuff…
My friend and I run up and down the compartments, the train at this moment is pulling off. Damn it, was deeply upset, shaken, violated, my camera, we had already trekked in Kalash and other beautiful parts of Himalaya, seen amazing things, now would never be seen again.
However! This, once the anguish passed, was a huge blessing.
The thief was a Terton.
You see, the next 7-8months, I travelled free, only Sadhu’s and destitute had less than me…
This was my blessing, when we were travelling, moving to stations, others would be worn down, by the burden of ”carrying their things”, yet I had been freed, by the thief… others began to bicker, worry, stress, over their things, this was what I came to India for, freedom from things…
Should I wish this man/men be judged, or, rewarded? Rewarded.
Was this man, a thief, or a treasure revealer? Terton.
The negative spirits, are those you choose to carry with you, treasuring your bondage. This Spirit Being (it seemed impossible to disappear like that) gave me the gift of presence, maybe they knew I’d be too dense, to find it myself.
This song means soo much to me, we used to listen to this album in my dads car, full blast, in the summer days of 84’ You are with and in me these days, my father.
This Is My Four Leafed Clover
Saturday Daddy came downstairs, to Amber asking if she could get a toy from Town. My response was to be, how was she to pay for this toy. However, Amber said ”Arya said she will share her birthday money with me”.
Asked Arya, yes indeed she had, what a moment. Later I asked Arya, did you offer to share, as you thought otherwise I would say ”no”’to the toy shop, reassuring it was OK if she had? ”No, I just wanted to share”.
The next day, at Shaftesbury May Festival, Arya was bought a wooden YoYo, as reward, when Amber saw, the envy monster “why you not me” erupted! It’s OK Amber, Arya will share with you! Bless.
“This is a story of a young man’s no-holds-barred love affair. Tom still believes in the notion of a transforming, cosmically destined, lightning-strikes-once kind of love. Summer, the girl, doesn’t. But that doesn’t stop Tom from going after her, again and again, like a modern Don Quixote. Suddenly, Tom is in love not just with a lovely, witty, intelligent woman but with the very idea of Summer, the very idea of a love that still has the power to shock the heart and stop the world.”
However, better than this, is the enduring, forever love, that is making me feel this same joy, in my two Daughters.
They are why I am refraining from 1,000+ days of summer, after 17years of union with their mother, this was to ensure my distractions are not to bring new female influence, to their young lives, until ready 3/3/3/3 post seperation.
