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.
“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
Getting back in touch with our sacred longings entails a spiritual quest – a kind of ecomystical renewal – that can transform our desire, enliven our communities, simplify our lifestyles, and ultimately rekindle our global prospects.
~ Sacred Longings: Ecofeminist Theology and Globalization

Light reaches out across the universe uplifting matter. Seeds and roots respond in Spring time glory. This circulating power, moving outward, downward and upward, has unlimited potential for humans and human systems on Gaia. Light is reaching out to you. Let it in. Let it move through you and out creatively, lovingly into your world.
Light shape-shifts matter and evolves consciousness.
excerpt from S/He Dragon ~ how I found my wings
Goddess Religions upheld the Feminine as dominant. God Religions uphold the Masculine as dominant. Let’s transcend this duality of male/female, light/dark, positive/negative and honor both forces within oneself and with others. This integration provides a new way of Seeing and Being.
Years ago I found a head-to-tail snake skin in a circle garden I was clearing. Today I caught sight of slithering movement in the raspberry bushes. A very healthy black snake (no stripes) revealed its presence. Snakes and serpents are one of the oldest symbols of female power. Welcome, garden companion!
