Lyrics Sara Teasdale (1917?) Music Jake Riviera (1979) For Ingo Schantz & Andy Lunn Recorded 1979 @Hotline Studios, Frankfurt ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Your eyes drink of me, love makes them shine Your eyes that lean so close to mine. We have long been lovers, we know the range Of each other’s moods and how they change. But when we look at each other so Then we feel how little we know, how little we know.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. [interlude] We have long been lovers, we know the range Of each other’s moods and how they change And how they change, change, change.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. My, my, my my mystery.. [repeat & fade] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In 1884, Sara Trevor Teasdale was born in St. Louis, Missouri, into an old, established, and devout family.

Spiritual Reflections: Peace- Easy to define, harder to experience
In the midst of a holiday season in which peace is commonly announced but too seldom experienced, a few spiritual reflections on peace may be fitting. Many draw their understanding of peace from self-determined assumptions; I offer here meditations …

Make Peace with Yourself and Others the Wise Woman Way

(PRWEB) January 30, 2005

What is the Wise Woman Way? It is neither alternative nor orthodox medicine. Orthodox scientific medicine heals by fixing the machine. Alternative or heroic medicine heals by cleaning, by trying to get rid of what is dirty, bad, or wrong.

The Wise Woman tradition, however, heals by nourishing the wholeness of the unique being. To the wise woman, all things are interconnected and already perfect. The task then is not to create perfection but to make ourselves available to it, to acknowledge and trust our bodies as perfect manifestations of our wholeness, accepting life and death, health and sickness as part of the spiral. The Wise Woman tradition is more than 50,000 years old.

As a “backwards pioneer,” Susun brings this ancient wisdom to our modern lives, saying “I speak for the earth. I am the voice of the plants, bringing the ways of the Ancient Grandmothers to the sacred sister spiral of today.”

Susun Weed’s “Making Peace with Ourselves & Others, the Wise Woman Way” will be held at the St. Augustine Art Association, 22 Marine St., in St. Augustine, Florida, on February 13th at 7pm. The cost is a sliding scale of $ 10-$ 15. For more information, please contact Diane Longo at 904-824-8970.

Susun’s books will be available and she will sign them after the talk. There will also be a place at the book table for those in the healing arts to display their business cards and pamphlets.

Susun Weed, author of four best-selling books, and founder of the Wise Woman Center, is here to wake us up to the earth’s gifts, to entice us to bend over and pick a weed and taste it. She loves to see the enchanted glow that lights our faces when we realize all we need for health and nourishment is right here for free, a give away of the earth’s abundance. She reminds us that our bodies are organic, changing entities, not machines, and that we can trust ourselves to renew and transform.

Susun S. Weed has studied and taught about plants and their uses for more than 30 years. Her encyclopedic knowledge of herbs and health make her one of the most respected healers of our age. As the voice of the Wise Woman Tradition, she has opened tens of thousands of hearts and minds to the magic and medicine of the green nations. Susun is founder of the Wise Woman Center, editor in chief of Ash Tree Publishing, a high priestess of Dianic Wicca, a member of the Wolf Clan and the Sisterhood of the Shields, a Peace Elder, and a devoted goat keeper. Her four books – Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year, Healing Wise, the Second Wise Woman Herbal, Breast Cancer? Breast Health! The Wise Woman Way, and New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way – are used by more than half a million women world-wide. Susun currently offers her wisdom through her website, her correspondence courses, her apprenticeships, and workshops with her at home in the Catskills.

Robert Burns: There’ll Never Be Peace Till Jamie Comes Hame

Burns wrote or collected many songs about the Jacobite Rebellion. This is unusual in that it is about the ‘Old Pretender’. Not Bonnie Prince Charlie but his father James. The self styled James (VIII) and (III); son of the deposed James (II). He instigated the Rebellion in 1715 but it was ill-planned and ill led. This is a suitably sad song. 1. By yon castle wa’ at the close of the day, I heard a man sing, tho’ his head it was grey, And as he was singing, the tears doon came: – ‘There’ll never be peace till Jamie comes hame!’ 2. ‘The Church is in ruins, the State is in jars, Delusions, oppressions, and murderous wars, We dare na weel say it, but we ken wha’s to blame – ‘There’ll never be peace till Jamie comes hame!’ 3. ‘My seven braw sons for Jamie drew sword, But now I greet round their green beds in the yard; It broke the sweet heart o’ my faithfu’ auld dame – ‘There’ll never be peace till Jamie comes hame!’ 4. ‘Now life is a burden that bows me down, Sin I tint my bairnies, and he tint his crown; But till my last moments my words are the same – ‘There’ll never be peace till Jamie comes hame!’ For those interested in such information, this is played in D minor with a ‘dropped D’ tuning ie the lower E is re-tuned to low D

A Man’s a Man for A’ That by Robert Burns 1795 read by David Rintoul rnaudioproductions for Is there for honest poverty That hings his head, an a’ that? The coward slave, we pass him by – We dare be poor for a’ that! For a’ that, an a’ that! Our toils obscure, an a’ that, The rank is but the guinea’s stamp, The man’s the gowd for a’ that. What though on hamely fare we dine, Wear hodding grey, an a’ that? Gie fools their skills, and knaves their wine – A man’s a man for a’ that. For a’ that, an a’ that, Their tinsel show, an a’ that, The honest man, tho e’er sae poor, Is king o men for a’ that. Ye see yon birkie ca’d ‘a lord,’ Wha struts, an stares, an a’ that? Tho hundreds worship at his word, He’s but a cuif for a’ that. For a’ that, an a’ that, His ribband, star, an a’ that, The man o independent mind, He looks an laughs at a’ that. A prince can mak a belted knight, A marquis, duke, an a’ that! But an honest man’s aboon his might – Guid faith, he mauna fa’ that! For a’ that, an a’ that, Their dignities, an a’ that, The pith o sense an pride o worth, Are higher rank than a’ that. Then let us pray that come it may (As come it will for a’ that), That Sense and Worth o’er a’ the earth, Shall bear the gree an a’ that. For a’ that, an a’ that, It’s coming yet for a’ that, That man to man, the world, o’er Shall brithers be for a’ that. Audio created by Robert Nichol AudioProductions all rights reserved
