Extinct Animals: Embrace Life

 The grouping of Extinct Animals includes Other Hominins (e.g. Neanderthals), the Dinosaurs, the Remotely Extinct (e.g. Trilobites), and the Recently Extinct (e.g. Stellar’s Sea Cow). (Each sub-group relates to humans differently.) Many of these animals have shown how life started, and how it has continued through mass extinctions. The Recently Extinct animals demonstrate the end of life, and how they are still a part of those living today. Living in the place between reality and imagination, the Extinct Animals have taught me that life endures.

 The Remotely Extinct have survived mass extinctions. Moreover, during the Great Dying of the Permian Era, about ninety percent of all life went extinct. The Ancestors of all beings today are the ten percent who managed to survive the “Time of Hell on Earth,” which occurred 250 million years ago. As generalists, the Remotely Animals were flexible, possessed sheer stubbornness, and had good luck. From them, I learned that extinction happens, but as long as we are flexible, we can transform ourselves.

In the dream, it was the morning of this year's upcoming Grand Sabbat.

As I'm making preparations, Tall Rob comes up to me: beautiful Rob, wet-dream of the Western World, looking just as good as he did when I last saw him 10 years ago.

“Here, I wanted you to have this,” he says in his husky voice, pushing a handful of wadded bills into my hand. “Looking forward.” He smiles and moves off.

I look at the money for a moment, then push it uncounted into my pocket.

Rob has been dead for 10 years.

Children of Thunder

During a power outage, you can always tell where the pagans live.

Just look for the candlelight.

A big Thunderstorm blew through one night. Lights were out all over south Minneapolis.

My boyfriend at the time lived just down the street. I walked over. We undressed and stood holding each other.

He looked into my face.

Editorial Note: This post was the final one Lizann made to the world on Facebook, on May 20, 2018. She died, surrounded by her friends, loved ones, and many divine Beloveds, around 7 am on May 27, 2018. That which is remembered, lives. (Anne Newkirk Niven)

Mother Tree

When you see the Tree, you understand right away that this is the Mother Tree of All Apples.

A farmhouse, now long gone, once stood here. Nothing remains but a pile of old foundation stones.

But the Three Springs still bubble from the creek-bed, and feral apple trees fill the Secret Valley.

The Mother Tree is oldest, and biggest, of them all.

Orchard trees are pruned, bred low for easy picking. This tree has known neither pruning saw, nor the shade of other trees. Three with outstretched arms could barely span its girth.

Approach, and understand. Three sister trees—sprung, maybe, from a single apple—have grown up together, merging, in mutual embrace: the Three that are One, the One that is Three. You'd go far to find a better image of the Triple Goddess.
