Here is Shasta one day after we brought her to MuRefuge
from the Marin Humane Society,
the organization that brought her from Kern County, California.
She had just gotten a bath.
She is the easiest 4 legged ever to bathe.
Not surprisingly she is a "Water Dragon."
Today, February 25, 2018, Shasta, the 4 legged member of our pack, is six years old. For those of you knowing the Enneagram, Shasta is a self preservation Six. And for those of you with an understanding of numerology this must be auspicious with a convergence of sixes?

BEing a Water Dragon baby ii is not surprising thawhen she communicated with her interspecies communicator, she asked,"Where has all the water gone?" 

Shasta and her pack walking, to celebrate BEing One year old,
on the beach at Tomales Bay, California.
Her Auntie T joined us for a celebratory  picnic
in the town of Tomales.
Sandy explained that while the water (the Pacific Ocean) still exists, she (Shasta) has moved many, many, many miles away from the ocean. Shasta is having a huge adjustment to the dry desert climate and the near 7000 feet elevation. Now that she has been reassured that she is going to continue as a valued pack member, she has blossomed once again into her sweet, exuberant self that all who know her is familiar with.

And here we are on Butterfly Beach, Santa Barbara, California,
celebrating my birthday with a week in Santa Barbara.
And more water: the wetlands below Auntie T's house in Point Reyes Station, California.
"I loves my Auntie T," says Shasta.
Yesterday the awesome woman who negotiated our house buying gave us a House Warming, providing food, flowers and an opportunity for us to meet our neighbors. What a delicious event on so many levels! We found our neighbors to be of diverse age (from nineties to one year old) but with the common denominator of BEing warm, welcoming and full of stories. We feel blessed to BE here in Casa Alegre, more specifically the San Felipe neighborhood of Santa Fe, New Mexico, albeit without water.

This picture was taken the day before we took legal possession of our
new to us Santa Fe pueblo style Stamm house built in 1955.

We who have lost our sense and our senses -
our touch,
our smell 
our vision of who we are;
we who frantically force and press all things,
without rest for body or spirit,
hurting our earth and injuring ourselves:
we call a halt.

We want to rest.
We need to rest and allow the earth to rest.
We need to reflect and to rediscover the mystery that lives in us,
that is the ground of every unique expression of life, 
the source of fascination that calls all things to communion.

We declare a Sabbath,
a space of quiet:
for simply being and letting be,
for recovering the great forgotten truths;
for learning how to live again.

And as we each create a day of Sabbath to allow our Higher Self to emerge and flourish, may we
