El Mundo Bueno

This one needs to go up, too. El Mundo Bueno or El Mundo Malo: you decide. Get your magic on and help your preferred reality to become Real! ❤

In Starhawk’s novel, The Fifth Sacred Thing, two vastly different worlds vie for control. In mundane terms: a utopian, earth-loving, community-oriented, individual honoring society that values freedom and the sacred fights for survival against corporate fascism, religious, financial, and soul oppression, hypocrisy, and the Police State — a culture’s unprocessed Shadow Side made manifest.

    Interesting times.

  2. Very interesting, Kieron! I do know there are twice blooming irises, because, ahem, I did quite a bit of bulb research this year, LOL! But if they are not actually twice bloomers but bloomed twice, that’s extra interesting. My alpine strawberries have blooms now, too. 🙂 Interesting times for sure with the eagles!
