Dream time February 1993: I find a Salamander and hold it tenderly while looking for a place to set it free near forest for protection and water for nourishment. In “real” time I feel motherly toward this tiny creature and asked Native American, David Horsely, to draw an image of it for my non-profit organization Community Threads. Time proved this to be the initial birth of S/He Dragon.
S/He Dragon ~ how I found my wings is a story about my evolving relationship with Light.

Earth Sun lovers ~ in orbital embrace
One at radiant center ~ the other tilting, spinning in response
Their contact grounding ~ enlivening cellular matter
Their circuitry charged ~ releasing celestial song
Their solstice alignment ~ celebrated today
By Solar Beings attuned ~ singing as One
S/He Dragon crossed paths with a Star Gate quartz crystal at a shop in Mt. Shasta. The power of this energy source almost knocked S/He off her feet. This story will be added to S/He Dragon ~ how I found my wings, a story book that continues to evolve.
S/He Dragon supports planetary healing through the Transition Network’s global community and its “inner resilience” component that includes “head, heart and hands.” S/He posted the following “Dragon Speak” in response to Rob Hopkins brilliant article, Is Transition Political? (transitionnetwork.org/blogs). Dragon Speak is different language than human speak. It is more right-brained (seeing the whole) than left-brained (seeing the parts). These two opposites are learning to work together.
Free Flowing Transition
I have been circulating Transition Free Press newspapers to my regional Transition Towns here in Salish Sea/Pacific Northwest/US. Each TT has a unique shape through their action projects and the platforms on which those actions stand. Does not every project have a political platform, a purpose?
This is not politics as usual. This is a system of flow where “bottom up” meets “top down.” Duality stops here. (We might need a new word to replace old “politics” if we can’t see it in a new light.)
It is empowering and encouraging when a Transition member is on City Council and part of that mainstream system. We feel proud. Go team!
Transition is a “party”, a network, a global community in action of flow. We follow our hearts and let that spirit guide us whether that is organizing a county coal/oil train watch, a Tool Library, a climate change event or a food hub.
It’s all Transition in flow.
“Puff, the Magic Dragon, lived by the sea, and frolicked in the Autumn Mist in a land called Honah Lee, little Jacky Paper loved that rascal Puff, and gave him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.”
― Peter Yarrow, Puff, The Magic Dragon
on ley line of earth ~ turning to greet sun ~ co-creating dawn of new day
on ley line of still space ~ between worlds ~ of night and day
a hearty presence laughs in my ear ~ of merry-making and joy ~ very signal that cues bird song
I came to know him that day as Pan ~ horned pagan god
~ excerpt from S/He Dragon, 1986
