The Summer Solstice is coming - it arrives tonight at 11:46 pm, Mountain Time. I have a CycleCast all planned, but haven't been able to get to the writing yet. Forgive me, dear readers. I'm all caught up in some personal cycles of my own, plus the events swirling around us on the global scene.
For those of who you haven't heard, a major movement towards f r e e d o m is taking place as I write, on the streets of Tehran and other cities in Iran, and around the globe and thousands join in solidarity, and in the cybersphere via blog posts, twitters, video uploads. I've never seen any thing quite like it in all my years of protest and activism. Two news sources that can catch you up on it: www.HuffingtonPost.com and CNN International.
It is in solidarity with the brave dissenters of Iran that I have changed my avatar. Green is the color of the dissent movement; and the image of Green Tara (Kwan Yin, the goddess of compassion) is, I think, an appropriate entity to evoke at this time. An advance reading of my CycleCast tells me that the quest for freedom - for oneself and others - is strong in the psychic-energy weather right now. May the spirit of freedom and peace eventually prevail, around the world!
I'll have more to say about the CycleCast, which will be posted tonight or tomorrow. Stay tuned.
