Maybe it's the coming full moon, maybe it's the sudden summer heat, or maybe I'm still recovering from the Flute Discovery Retreat. Maybe it is my concern for the friends in my life, maybe I have writers block or maybe I really need to spend time in meditation and with my flutes. I can't seem to get anything done.
I can't help but smile when I work on the grounds at the tipi area. I remember occasions when we have had full moon drumming. I almost fall off the mower laughing and remembering the night a friend (male) was pushed to the back of the tipi while three women moved in to spend the night and share the same fire. I remember my grandchildren spending the night with me and the morning thunderstorm that shook the earth.
I can't wait to get the tipi up again, I need to connect again to sleeping on the earth. I need my friends to come and share it with me. I need to drum under the full moon. I need to hear the flutes inside the tipi, the sound of the flute and the smoke of the fire, carrying our prayers into the night sky to the Creator.
Ahhh, I feel better already................
