a poem

maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles, and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles: and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

Elephant spirit

I was visiting with my friend Erika yesterday, who is an amazing healer and a Wonder Woman through and through. She is doing some body work on my messed up ankle from my “Lucie takes on Wimbledon” weekend.

We got to talking about animal spirits, how to find out which one you are and learn from it’s wisdom. Ever since I can remember I’ve had love and passion for elephants. Yet it didn’t occur to me, before last night, that the elephant is my spirit, my healing and my medicine.

I’m very excited to start a new journey with my Elephant, and I hope that she visits me in my dreams soon.

Elephant medicine includes dignity, grace, strength, wisdom, confidence, patience, commitment, gentleness, discernment, intelligence, compassion, and removal of obstacles.

The elephant’s head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents OM, the primal sound from which the universe constantly emanates.

Tribal peoples invoke elephant for health, good luck, longevity, memory, and unity with the oneness of everything. By connecting to elephant in a dream, one’s sense of being a separate individual gives way to an experience of union with the totality of a dynamic, interrelated universe. The benefits of attaining planetary collective consciousness include relaxation, healing, more energy, better memory, greater mental clarity, enhanced creativity, and communion with the resonant web of information that is the universe.
