IS she right?


Protestor stomping the flag.

I am not a patriotic type of cat the way that is popular today and was the bane of my people's existence, but I've learned over the years not to cross the line disrespecting what is sacred to another. Anything considered thus deserves, at the least, thoughts centered around 'why' and 'how' in relation to who is before you, and your thoughts about a people who annoy or enrage you! These were taught to me by my people, and my father, in particular, who was a Civil Rights leader in his time!

Is she wrong?

AFRICA UNITE, one day perhaps




Africa Unity Day is May 25 of each year.



 

Soldiers Prayer?





There is a question simmering beneath the appearance of patriotic America: should troops be free to worship anywhere?

I agree. People in objection don't understand combat or living in the constant threat of being killed with a sense of duty to something larger than them. All the emotions around outrage over church over state, and anger over religious experiences that didn't make life easy for many, or fury over the system of religion influencing thought and action, melt away in war. What is left is the raw, bare bones of awareness of the fragility of life, and you start to pray sensing the beyond, like never before!

Exaggerating the body lines and the bottom for white women is an historical piece. To unravel history is to unveil the secrets hidden from ourselves.

It was common knowledge the initial reaction and the long impact of Africa and African women upon the esteem of European women many centuries ago. Fully understanding these things we would understand how close we are to seeing mirrors within ourselves to see what we fear, lack and long for.

It is a great thing to know why we do what we do and admire and long for in each sphere of our lives.

Weapons of the People.


Bows and Arrows


When the Bow and arrow first appeared, it was made as a weapon consisting of a stave made of wood or other elastic material, bent, and held in place by tension of the string. The arrows are thin wooden shafts with feathered tails that is fit into the string by a notch in the end of the shaft. When the arrow is drawn back, the bow is released and the arrow is propelled forward from the release of tension. Arrowheads have been made from a number of materials including stone, flint, metal, and other hard materials.

The Navajo Indians used a short double curve bow similar to the plains style bows. The arrows they made had three feather fletching and lightning groves on the shafts. The Navajo quiver was made of different types of leather including deer hide, cow hide, buffalo hide, fox hide, wolf hide, mountain lion hide, and various others. The quiver may be decorated with fringes, fur, horse mane or beads. The bows were usually made from Mesquite wood and were round on the back and flat on the belly. The back was sometimes lined with sinew and the handle was often wrapped in buckskin. The string was primarily made of sinew.

Some bows were made from Mulberry, Locust, Mesquite, Oak or Maple; however, Mulberry was said to be the Navajo peoples favorite. Sinew strings were fashioned from leg sinew from deer, and arrow shafts were made form mountain mahogany, Apache plume, and mulberry and were fletch with three feathers. There is no record of flint to stone points for hunting; however, a record of sharpened and fire hardened wood tips is available.

The best Apache Indian bows were considered to have been made from mulberry, although locust, oak and maple were sometimes used. The Apache craftsman knew of double curved bows and made some; however, these bows were thought to be inefficient to the single curve self bows that they preferred. The length was usually three to four feet. Bows were made from branches which were stripped of their bark, shaped to size, and dried for a week. After one week, it was greased, bound to shape, placed in hot ashes to keep its shape, and cured for 10 more days. Bows were not immediately fully drawn, but rather gradually broken in. The preferred bow string was made of sinew string, but mescal fibers could be substituted. The Apache made two types of arrows. The first type of arrow was approximately two feet in length and made of hardwood such as mountain mahogany, Apache plum, Mulberry, and Desert Broom. The second type was made from cane and had wooden fore shafts. Hardwood arrows were fashioned from bark peeled branches that had been dried for several days. Once the branches had dried, they were straightened against heated rocs. An arrowhead was bound to the shaft with sinew and hide glue and the fletching of three buzzard, eagle or hawk wing or tail feathers was added.

The Sioux Indians made a double curved bow that was customized in length for each archer. The bow measurement was taken by measuring from the archers outstretched left arm that is parallel with the ground. The bow length is from the left middle finger to the right outside hip at the joint. Although some historians have said the Sioux liked their bows sinew backed, but this is not true. Green Ash was also used to make their bows. This wood was cut when it was green at the approximate size needed, greased, and hung in the lodge to season before finishing. The arrows were made of wood with three feather fletching running even with the nocks and lightning groves. The arrows were measured from the tip of the middle finger to elbow of the right arm and from the wrist to where the hand joins the middle finger. The combined measurements gave the over all arrow length. The Sioux Indians used stone, bone, and sinew arrowheads, but used steel arrowheads as soon as they could trade for them. - anon

delicate dream of beauty, Anya Sugar for InkSpired Magazine
 (July 18, 2016) !!!!



Soft, gentle communication between senses, mind, body, spirit and essence is not unlike the sensory perceptions of divinity and the terrestial elements upon which we live and depend upon. In short, our relationship with Earth, our Mother reflects the beauty of what we see, what we percieve and what we believe we know to be true. Beauty is all a mystery akin to the wisdom teachings of aging into the knowledge of self.
Perhaps, this feels like a riddle, but the riddle of existence is for those who have forgotten why they are in this lifetime upon the Earth, our Mother! - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 7.23.16

The photographer (Meneldor Photography) has a great eye and an understanding of light and dark and how light imposes and darkness suggests. It is an interesting play on emotions with an emphasis on change. How quickly relationships change. Light can become an imposition and darkness can relieve the stress of responsiblity, and knowing sometimes as people wrestle within themselves.

A Father's Wisdom is a boy's insight into women.



A wife a man trusts is in the sacred place of the home she created in his heart!
- Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 6.20.16


The closeness of beds to walls in bedrooms, and the close intimacy of bedrooms are an underappreciated and appreciated source of energies that evoke powerful unions into value systems children can assess watching their parent's lives. Bedrooms are meant to be sanctuaries, and holy places where the family grows, conception takes place, prayers are said, pain is spoken of, and shared in the close proximity of heart to heart.

the Math of Form.


60 years of developing into a tour de force.


Sonja Kirchberger's terribly pretty legs!!!! photo by Luca Teuchmann.


So, what is a curve?

You don’t really need a technical definition, and it probably wouldn’t help you even if I could provide one. I’m going to give you a loose definition that a curve is anything you can draw. Obviously, that’s a pretty wide-ranging definition, and there’s only a limited subset of all of the possible curves you need to care about for C1.

In most of A-level, you only care about functions, which have the nice quality that they never back-track: for any value of x you can think of, if you draw a vertical line through that value, it crosses the curve once. Or nonce.

Every curve has a (possibly very complicated) equation in the form y=f(x) , where f(x) is some jumble of x s and numbers. Just like with the straight line, you can tell whether a point is on the line by checking the two sides of the equation: replace the y with the y -coordinate and the x s with the x -coordinate and make sure the two sides give you the same answer.
A curve also (as far as you’re concerned) has a derivative, dydx=f(x) , which you get by differentiating the jumble of x s. This tells you how steep the curve is at any given point: you just throw in the value of x and see what comes out.

Curves are objects that often have names (silly names like C ) — I find it helpful to think of them like Top Trumps cards with categories like “Equation of curve”, “Equation of derivative”, “Name”, “y -intercept”, “Solutions”, “Turning points” and so on. You can even draw out the card if it helps…
(A particularly useful thing to note: if the gradient is 0, the curve is temporarily flat; this is known as a turning point, or a stationary point, or an extremum, or a local maximum or minimum, depending on how awkward they want to be.) - Written by in core 1, geometry.

Mystery teaches the Spirit

What man is ready to lose his own soul for a woman unprepared to restore, and give life in the ways of old when the sacredness of the punany was revered, and the Old Wise Women were teaching the young women the sacred ways?

The answer is easy. It is simple. Most.

To Think Deeply of Home




elegant beauty.




Pandora Blue by Chris Fulcher photo (2015)

An important asset in a good man's house is the most beautiful woman in his world. The most important thing a man's woman can give him is heart, and the highest value between the two is trust anchoring their love for self and each other in that order.

Coming home to a drop dead gorgeous wife is a priviledge. It is an honor and a responsibility to protect her. She makes the husband safe in a parallel fashion her way.

These are my words from personal experience. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 6.20.16

MIRRORS FRAGILE WOMEN'S STRENGTH




Katie Holmes' exquisite beauty of face and form...




Ideal Black American woman's body is this. It is the shape of Africa from whence she comes!!!!
- Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories
June 22, 2016


The study of women is the recognition, or acknowledgement of the importance of women in the manifestation of manhood and the design of masculinity. Without it (the study) where is the substance of integrity within a man's manhood?

We look into mirrors to see how we appear, but cannot look into a woman's soul to see who we are? That is fear at a level of deception, self deception that likes to boast about being superior to a woman in the hope no woman ever calls out a man's ineptness, and his hidden flaws. If men were superior women would be incapable of stirring our fears, making us feel useless, or have the ability to call our contradictions outdoors into the light!

As strong as we are we are as weak as women are strengths or weakness to our inner beings. Is this a riddle? Are we supposed to unravel the unknown elements without a woman's powers and insights?

The answers determine the man.
