The Golden State: According to Math

Warmest greetings, my friends! Today, I’m going to drop some very important numbers to prepare you for…

The Battle of California!

Of course, you all know — as well as I — that the California primary has the power to make or break each of the candidates for democratic nominee.

With a stunning 475 pledged delegates at stake, the fight for the Golden State will be a battle for the heart of our democracy — its results shall blare & resound like roaring thunder in the teleprompters of every TV station in the nation and they shall flash with the brightness of ten-thousand suns on the screens of millions of Facebook & Twitter feeds.

Verily, on that day, some shall rejoice, while others shall cast their faces down & gnash their teeth!

Greetings, my friends! (And greetings, my trolls, too, I s’ppose)

A good friend suggested to me that I should write a new update & general overview of the delegate math and I thought that was an exceptional idea, so — here we are. If you find yourself wondering, “wait, where exactly are we, again?” then, you’ve come to the right place & this article is for you! And I’m glad that you’ve asked — I’ll show you, follow me!

A Brief Summary of
What Will Happen at the Democratic Convention

First, let’s go over the basics, again —

The first thing that everyone should understand is that Hillary Clinton will not be clinching the nomination before the convention, despite what the talking heads are saying! They are vipers & deceivers — I suspect that they weren’t hugged enough or something. Anyway —…

If you feel less than awesome in your body at this very moment, keep reading. What I’m sharing today could literally change your life!

Today, we’re talking about a topic that is near and dear to me because of my personal healing journey to identify food sensitivities, get myself off of a chronic disease medication, and heal my body.

What I’ve learned about this system and its role in keeping me healthy has transformed my life.

I feel better than I’ve ever felt in my body and almost never get sick. But for the longest time, I felt like what I was dealing with was “normal” because it was all I’d ever known.

On an almost daily basis I either hear stories about, talk to people dealing with or read about frustrating struggles with health issues that SEEM to be “normal” because they are common.

A Recovering Innocent

“A serious person can never be innocent and and innocent person can never be serious” Osho. I surrender my seriousness and reclaim my innocence! Chery

A Recovering Innocent

“The essential self is Innocent, and when it tastes its own Innocence knows that it lives for ever.”[1]

I am a late bloomer.  I have always felt like I am walking at the back of the parade.  I believe that when I was born, it took me a while to fully enter this dimension of reality.  With one foot in this world, and one in the realm of Spirit I had just left, I had an initial experience of Innocence, my natural state of being.  Innocence felt simple, trusting, pure, and had a sense of incorruptibility.  Actions had a sense of ease and effortlessness.

In this life, this experience of my body and the perception of duality that comes with it, Innocence was easily lost.  I have been wandering through life believing in the perception of good and evil and with that…

Celebration of Life 65

Sun Salute in Sedona
Mountain Valley Retreat has been welcoming guests for one year.                                             Only a few hours ago we all were here…
Sharing our words, our hugs, our laughter, our tears…
Friends coming together to Connect
For our Celebration of Life 65.

My local tribe from Borrego Springs, Manzanita Village, Ramona, Sunshine Summit, Warner Springs, Lake Henshaw, Ranchita and Haiku, our Resident thru-hiker from the PCT
Came together like a giant constellation of stars
Inter-connecting with my Kindred Spirits from far away as if
We have always known each other.

HoJo and Richard created a Sound-scape of Magical Music
While we ate… oh, the Food!
And drank…oh, the Champagne!
While we laughed and talked and hugged and danced.

Chris & Cristina serenaded us with poignant songs of life.
The Grandmother Drum called to us to let our
Wild Souls Out
And we drummed and danced until at last
We fell gently into a puppy pile
Resting our bodies against each other
Feeling the strength of our connection
The power of our love.

And I am only 65 today.
I have 35 more years to live and play
In this beautiful body,
On this beautiful earth,
With these beautiful people.

Aho.
