IN a Protective Heart, a woman's need!




"The gentleness inside of women asks to be protected. At least, perceive it before a word is uttered. It is a prayer I've heard time and times again unspoken in a look, a gasp of breath, and a sudden movement away from a touch..." ~ Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories


















There is gentleness in beauty the way a woman settles within herself. Whores, in the street vernacular, are not given this trait because johns cannot see within. Audrey Bitoni is in this picture. If not told, would you believe she was an adult actress in the porn business? If you answer, yes; then why? Why is one perception a whore, another knowing a woman is, but cannot respond to her thus, and those innocently enough do not sense it.?How is that? How does this come to pass by unobserved by the brutes?

The answer is in the character.- Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12/13/17

Is this a newer perception of Christianity, daring re-visitation of Ephesian 6's description
of being a soldier for the Lord? - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories

Julie Ann, provocative as she is, establishes the fact of the specialness of her soul by the definition of her punany. Connections to her heart from the vagina is the language of a woman's holiness. It can be this way. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories

Food Scientists.


Maat Petrova shopping for food. . . 2017.


Peace. Peaceful mindsets reign above the science of food. It is unusual to be aligned with the foods today. The practice of measuring has overtaken the sanctity of preparing food, removing the sacredness of eating has created disorders. Shifting into this paradigm has no beneficial relationship with power. Power is its own incentive to change, become, and be still within one's soul. Applied to food the better our dreams grow, the better we understand where we are as a People, as a family member.

It is summer time as things grow and the beginning of Harvest is the celebration ceremony. Without ceremony food is just there to eat. Ceremony and gratitude brings in the fullness of healthy minds, empowered spirits and right relations with our Mother, the Earth, each other and the animals who feed us, and the plants who know us, and what we need! ~ Gregory E.

SEX, POLITICS, and GUNS


Guns. The coming together of gun and white woman is and has always
been a deadly combination; add a porn star to the equation and what comes alive,
and out of that kind of math?... ~ Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories. Audrey Bitoni in photo.



The coming together of gun and white woman is and has always been a deadly combination; add a porn star to the equation and what comes alive, and out of that kind of math? There is power in each of the three, but the coming together is the multiplication of hidden factors, not to be separated or divided. But, since the subject poses within history the fact of what a porn star brings into this equation limits the subject of murder to a narrow space concerned with being objectified, raped, or seen as no more than a potential sexual conquest. That ain't fair. Sex is a center piece.

The historical contribution of white women to the violence African slaves experienced, and the grandchildren of ex-slaves shuddered beneath returns the full weight of this history upon the shoulders it belongs. This kind of violence is tied to sex.


This perspective comes from the context of American life and legacy. Not addressing the core of the conditions holding this country apart, and together is irresponsible. Understanding how complex the relationships that complicates the world, and strains within the myth of American society is what is part of being a global citizen! Disturbingly, these are connected to the conservative white man in Alabama running for senator in Alabama!

How?

Americans don't want to know their truths. But it is entirely up to the American citizen to find out why sex is tied to what disturbs the equations of American history in the puzzle around this white man in the senate race in the bloody state of Alabama!

Life Accomplishment: excellence.


Morning meditation: 

Pray in every situation. Know your worth. Don’t let the past harm your future. Stop comparing yourself to others. Trust your inner voice. Everything doesn’t need to be said. Love and forgive yourself first. Life is short. Strive to achieve your goals. Know your limits. Inspire. Believe. Words are powerful. Speak wisely.

This is what I see looking at this photograph!" - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 12/1217

Marriage in Hollywood.


"The images created and sustained by Hollywood shaped the ideas of the modern American family in superficial, and significant ways. They solidified the authority of the nuclear family so far down in our collective memories the stability of, and ancient strength of the clan systems of the extended families and the traditions and rituals they have established deep in the indigenous mindsets got lost in the 'American Dream'.

The way people of the darker hue need to revive their souls is to shake this out of our systems as easily as one wakes up from a gripping nightmare pretending to be other than what it really is: the nightmare! The way white people need to perform the same task is different, and unlike the way others of us must unlearn! You see, those who created and seem to succeed from the dysfunction of the nuclear family have to recognize its enormity with fears acquainted with denial. At some point the various directions realization takes the different people towards wholeness, people will come together; but not superficially. . ." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories [9/9/17]
