I Like a Log-Cabinish Type of Website. Pooh. :~)

So the professional PR folks are telling me that I need to upgrade my website. The www.marecromwell.com one. The one I don’t have time to get to, so far, since el booko is not finished. And the Great Mother Wisdom Gathering is RATHER time consuming… ah…

– so I just posted this on the marecromwell website – ;)

“Note – http://www.marecromwell.com is under construction. Until it goes live, here you are…   ;~)   “

Personally, I like the simple, log cabin-ish look and feel of my website. It’s a great catch all, kinda clunky, cute, simple. Not too aesthetic but works. Who says I need a Lear Jet type of website anyway?

Pooh.

;~)

(I will always be counter-culture, I guess. Comes with being the middle child of a large, large family, 7 kids. What can I say?)

The Monty Python and the Holy Grail Reenactment Party

Aka Mare’s Birthday Party/Potluck/Sacred Silliness

 

Sun, Sept 7, 2014 (Rain or Shine)

1pm- 7pm, Young and Old Invited!

(Drumming Circle starts 5pm or whenever)

 

Please no gifts—though a suggested donation of $5-$10/person will go toward party expenses (to Stone Fence Gardens, porta-potty, etc), and also to Mare’s Book Publishing Adventures.

Children under 7 come free.

Stone Fence Gardens

6610 Mountaindale Road, Thurmont, MD 21788

No need to RSVP – Just Come… Bring a Friend…

 

For the past three summers, Mare has not been able to truly celebrate her birthday (traveling, etc.). So she’s inviting you to come out, bring your favorite Monty Python movie prop and have some fun. We will have a scavenger hunt with prizes, Monty Python Trivia games. Shrubbery. More Shrubbery. And even more Shrubbery. You know we have to have Shrubbery.
Not so sure about squirting blood from limbs … or lack of limbs.

**This event will be a celebration of Mare’s completing her book & overcoming lymphoma & having multi-colored toes (toenail polish) and other important events in the world, of a more positive bent, of course…

**If you bring Shrubbery, you may get more prizes. Along with chickens, small dead cows, tiny sheep, sparrows carrying a stone, one scale & a large duck, false noses, coconut shells, small Trojan Horses, curtains, and various other props. We would like several castles too. Please bring one of those.


**Drum circle to follow.

MovieCoverImageMP&HolyGr
**Come with your sense of humor along with the clickety-clack of coconut shell (or cups), potluck dish, drinks of a non-alcoholic nature. Please bring your own plates & cups – to cut down on waste.

— There will be a bonfire burning during the event too. —

**20% of proceeds to support Stone Fence Gardens, and John Wyvell’s store will be open during the event as he is selling all of his inventory.

Produced by Mare Cromwell, Tom & Andrea McCluskey &

the Roving & Informal Center for Sacred Silliness (TM).

She Let Go – Reverend Safire Rose

10494762_591126164337411_7076840323456696960_n
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of fear. She let go of the judgments.
She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her.
She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely,
without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a
book on how to let go… She didn’t search the scriptures.
She just let go.
She let go of all of the memories that held her back.
She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.
She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go.
She didn’t journal about it.
She didn’t write the projected date in her day-timer.
She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.
She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.
She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.
She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.
She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.
She didn’t call the prayer line.
She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened.
There was no applause or congratulations.
No one thanked her or praised her.
No one noticed a thing.
Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle.
It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.
It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her.
And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.
Here’s to giving ourselves the gift of letting go…
There’s only one guru – you.

– The Reverend Safire Rose

This was circulating Facebook and I just had to share it here… so speaks to me… and how I’m finally, really releasing myself from such ancient fears. It’s time… whoo-hoo!  Oh, yeah… it’s time. :~)

hugs, Big Love to all,

Be the Heart Flowing – Poem by Mare

Let it go.
Let it go.
Let the stories wash away

A sweet brook
carrying away the old leaves.
Feel the waters of life’s sweetness and
love wash them away to
Mother.
Let Mother’s love infused sacred waters
fill you up with all the trust
and hope and Divineness
you are truly.
The rest of it is old
stories to let go.
Be the Heart flowing.
You already
are.
