~ Dance, then where ever You May Be ~

Let yourself dance to music as you weave today's spell. Pick a tune to
suit your mood. Arrange to have it play over and over. As it plays,
dance. Dance with your body, but dance also with your mind and heart,
and soul. Dance until you feel as one with the music. Gradually, instead
of being led by the music and just following along, begin to consciously
weave a dancing spell of your own devising. Many legends tell of the
gods dancing the world into creation. You can dance something into
creation. Dance for love. Dance for prosperity. Dance for healing. Dance
as you are led to dance, but dance proactively not just reactively. When
your dance is complete, stop and place your hands on the floor to thank
it for giving support for your dance.

Sacred Run 2006 - Week 4 Reflections...

"Running for Land, Life and Peace - All life is sacred!"

"This morning, rather than rest on a rest day, a number of us went for a morning run. Invigorating, lots of fun, great Spirit among us. Here's our after-the-run and before-breakfast photo, outside the Iowa Nation of Oklahoma Fire and Police Station. Front row: K.A., Joel, Les and Octavia. Back row: Mark, Marcus, Nuno, Joe, Dennis, Larry (BG), and Jim."

From the Newsletter:

The start of our third week of Sacred Run 2006 was both interesting and sobering as part of the group had the opportunity to stop at Fort Sumner, New Mexico, for a special pipe ceremony to remember and commemorate the many Navajo and Apache native people who suffered and died at this location. In 1862 the federal government decided to expel these tribes from their homelands with a forced relocation. Col. Christopher “Kit” Carson led a military campaign that first attacked the Mescalero Apaches in southern New Mexico, forced about 450 people to surrender and then marched them to the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.

HWEELDI: “the place of suffering Carson then led the Army into Navajoland and attacked relentlessly: destroying homes, burning crops, and killing livestock. Thousands of men, women and children were starved into submission and forced to march to the Bosque Redondo during the winter of 1863-64, a distance of over 450 miles. As many as 3,000 Navajos, perhaps one-fifth of the population, died during the “Long Walk” period. Their name for the place is hweeldi, which translates roughly as “the place of suffering.”

We all felt a certain sadness and heaviness during our visit at the Fort Sumner State Monument. But, perhaps more significantly, we were also reminded of the importance for all people to honor and recognize the sacredness of Mother Earth and everyone who lives here. "

The Wild Horses Of Newbury

"There was no inspiration for the film, apart from the moment itself. I was at Newbury, filming the protests and the evictions on a Hi8 Camcorder. Very early one february morning, I found myself in a field with over 500 security guards and police, they had surrounded a small copse and a couple of huge, old oak trees and were preparing to chop them down. They had successfully outwitted the protesters. In the chaos accompanying the operation, some hedges and fences had been destroyed and these two horses were roaming virtually free. As the chainsaws started, they didnt run away as you'd expect, but towards the felling.. I just grabbed the camcorder and started filming, nothing was staged, the whole episode only lasted a few minutes, but had quite a profound effect on everyone there. Even the police were dumbfounded, especially by the 'confrontation' between the 'wild' horse and the police horse"

World Weary Detective

On Friday 3rd March 2006, the Management Board of the Metropolitan Police Service issued the following statement to all members of staff:

'Recently the organisation has become aware of a series of web-logs or blogs - where authors - claiming to be police officers - have offered their views on a number of issues in a highly personalised, often controversial manner.'

This statement is followed by 'guidance' on writing blogs. In summary, this states that although 'blogging' cannot be stopped, the 'impact of expressing views and opinions that are damaging to the organisation or bring the organisation into disrepute' must be considered. Disciplinary proceedings may be considered against posters of material that may be (among other things) defamatory, offensive or otherwise inappropriate.

I have committed no crime. I have compromised no police operations. I have received no payment for anything published on this blog. All opinions expressed are my own.

It is therefore with deep regret and great sadness that I must announce that I will no longer be submitting posts to this blog. I cannot challenge New Scotland Yard. I am weary indeed and cowardice is my bedmate. The protection of my family must take precedence.

To each and every one of you - take note of what has happened here and be afraid.

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever. - George Orwell
