Hello dear friends,
My painting above was the result of some playing around, starting with a whirlwind of colors which then had an unusual angel come to visit. I’ve not decided whether I’m done with it or not.
It’s May, and it just snowed here in Lethbridge. Sigh. I have laryngitis or some sort of throat/chest infection — the weather feels like sympathetic resonance. So I don’t have much to share today, except the painting experiment above and the following poem. May this new moon initiate new beginnings, and better health for myself and all else who need it!
With much love and many blessings,
— Cat Charissage, April 2019

We think in trinities.
We describe reality as we experience it, in trinities.
And, in 1945, in the soul land of enchanted New Mexico,
the test site of another trinity —
Soul, Defense, Destruction —
was named The Trinity Site,
where we caught clear sight of one particular reality.
Some may have seen
Testing, Destruction, Ending the War.
I say I saw
Threat, Destruction, Death.
Or Power, Threat, Annihilation.
The explosive power is not IN the Proton, the Neutron, or the Electron, but
In the INTERACTION of Proton, Neutron, Electron.
Power is not in Me, or You, or in the Other,
But in the interaction of Me, and You, and Another.
Almost 75 years after the first nuclear explosion,
Supposed to have brought peace in our time,
We live with Fear, Hatred, and Instability.
What if. . .
we had a testing site
in a most beautiful soul land —
here would do,
or the center of any of our hearts —
where we gather
the brightest of the brightest
Aspirations, Creativity, and Skills
to Explore, Test, and Disseminate
The explosive power of the interaction of
Hope, Love, Life —
of Me, You, and Another.
