When Good and Ready, and In Order to Be.

I found a great big hole in the Earth,
and decided to climb into it.

Then I found this picture online, and decided
to use this beanstalk ladder instead,
springing up for my adventure.

This is where I’ll be until further notice.

    1. Helloooo Atxero! Oooh, that’s interesting, but there’s no rabbit quite yet.
      Maybe a caterpillar though. πŸ™‚

      Oh, there’s definitely a cat, too. I also see some sunshine peering through in the future time in the form of a sunshine post, although I cannot say just when.
      but at some point. πŸ˜‰

      1. ooo. I like the prospects. Looks like fun things for a child’s imagination..and a child with a healthy robust imagination at that!

        The curious me wonders what you do in life. You did say studies and work and with the kind of writing you do here, my curiosity antenna is piqued. Kindly excuse my insolence in asking. It is just that you (I…I) sometimes wonder about the person behind the works from where the works come into existence.

      2. Spoken like a seer. (I finally looked up more about you than just forming my impressions about you from your latest posts in my inbox or the brief interactions we have). I think I have been interacting with a Who is Who personality of an esoteric genre and I dont really know how insolent I have already been. I have been in awe/intrigued by Shamans since some time and glad to be interacting with one, and on wordpress at that!

      3. Hi Atxero,

        You know I wonder about you, too. I mean, after all, we are here for each-other; while we are busy, we are also here. You know? Don’t worry too much about insolence; I hope to take my own advice as well. We are all doing our best fighting a battle within, growing, sharing and being the best we can be.

        Feel free to contact me using my contact page.

        I love you already,

  1. Hey Ka,

    ‘This is where I’ll be until further notice.’ πŸ˜€ Walking with giants on the roof of the world! Awesome!

    If there’s any truth at all to the legend of the golden egg laying Goose…don’t forget to pop a couple of dozen eggs in your knapsack for when you back on Earth. They’ll come in very handy for Easter presents.

    I think they call this form of street-art, ‘anamorphic’ art, or ‘slant’ art. It plays with perspective in the most extraordinary ways. I find it fascinating how easily the eye is fooled and the mind befuddled. A famous example is, The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein, (1533), and worthy of look if you get five minutes to yourself.

    Hoping all’s well and your adventures continue to bring fresh and exciting discoveries. πŸ™‚

    Take care

    1. Hi Dewin,

      Below is my postcard I wrote before returning from the lower world. I think I’ll stay a little while longer. Yes, perspective is a funny thing. I saw myself seeing the hole below me, and actually ended up sliding down on the beanstalk into a lower world with sunshine.

      “Dear Dewin,

      It’s so nice for you to wait up there with the giants. When I get back, I will deliver whatever eggs I find – I have to use my hoodie sweatshirt as a knapsack, but now that I know where lower world is, and that I can actually find light here too *tons.* I’ll just plan ahead for next time. I didn’t realize I’d like it down here so much. Although I think I still want to go down lowering where it might be darker. I am not afraid of the dark. In fact, I am hanging out at the bottom of the bottom of a tree. I don’t know what kind of tree it is but it smells magical. There’s lots of support energy down here. Good thought on the knapsack. Let’s see what else shows up that we weren’t quite expecting, k?

      Sincerely, Ka”

      πŸ™‚ See you on the flip-side!

    2. P.S. Dewin, I took a look at The Ambassadors, by Hans Holbein and remember seeing it before. Very cool. It reminds me of one of my favorites and fairly well-known works of Jan van Eyck’s “The Arnolfini Portrait.” It’s like a portrait within a portrait. Thank you for sharing! Namaste & Smiles, Ka

      1. Hey Ka,

        Thank you for your postcard, it arrived today πŸ˜‰

        Perspective is indeed a funny thing…I must have been looking up at you from down-below to see you at the rising top of that tremendous green shoot. I thought of you as Jack, or rather a Jacqueline and the Beanstalk, hence my quip about the gold-egg laying goose. I hadn’t realised I should have been looking down-below from up-above to see you at the rooted base of that tremendous shoot. πŸ™‚

        ‘I don’t know what kind of tree it is but it smells magical’. Oh, that must be very cool…what does magic smell like?

        I like the sound of a hooded knapsack, or is it hoodie knapsack? Or maybe it’s a hooded napping sack, or a hooded sack napping? Or a hooded knapping sack? Or a hooding knapsack? – which is my favourite term…it speaks of gentle mischief, like scrumping apples from the farmers orchard, or gold eggs from geese! (Is ‘hooding’ a term, I wonder? It should be) But whatever it may be called, if your hoodie has room to carry all the jewels and gems, the treasures and energies, and anything else unexpected back with you, that has to be a good thing and worth all the effort of being in the hole in the first place, right? πŸ™‚ Will we get to hear about all that you find?

        Thank you for the mention of picture you mention of Jan van Eyck’s β€œThe Arnolfini Portrait.” It’s a painting I’ve not seen in a long while and was glad to not only see it again but find out more about. A fascinating work of art…’considered one of the more original and complex paintings in Western art because of the iconography, the unusual geometric ‘orthogonal perspective’, and the use of the mirror to reflect the space..’ (Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnolfini_Portrait) What constantly holds my attention is the light, the way it has been captured with such delicate realism. Beautiful.

        In your postcard you mention thoughts of heading deeper into the hole. You know Ka, I hope you’ll not be gone for too long or we’ll al be missing you on the flip-side!

        Take care πŸ™‚ Have happy week!

  2. Wishing you great adventures and happy creating, my friend! I’m sure the stories you tell upon your return will be well worth the wait… πŸ™‚

    Wishing you Smooth Sailing!

    1. Hi Michael,

      I’m still here. I didn’t go anywhere yet, but I suppose, I am technically still in my hole. ~ just for fun. We’ll see where tonight’s shamanic journey takes me. [Please remind Mary if you see her, that I’m still in Molokai, too. We are playing with the dolphins.]

      I hope it’ll be worth the wait!

      I want to make sure you keep coming around and find some sustenance from this “watering hole” that my hole has created. The emptiness that births everything. The wave that comes over us, remember?: https://fiestaestrellas.com/about/ “the source of life moves in waves,” it’s part of my story. It looks like a big blob that reminds me of the character in the movie Princess Mononoke.

      By the ways, I pulled a very long needle the other day out of one of our patient’s hips. It was a phenomenal experience. I didn’t put it in myself, but I pulled it out. There’s a lot more light now. This work is definitely magic ~ as much as all this other work!

      Much Love,

  3. Ka,

    Your writing can be humorous, with your unique perspectives on the world and your way of pointing out the funny and the absurd in life. But I don’t feel like “whimsical” does justice to all that you are. In addition, you are very serious. You can read an astrological chart or articulate a philosophical point in the shrewd way that could only be done by someone who has been studying and observing the universe for years. I appreciate the levity that your humor can bring to situations, but although you bring light into the world, you are not an intellectual lightweight. You have the gravitas of an old soul, someone who has wisdom that is rare and precious in this world.

    Your admiring reader,

    PS — Thank you for fixing my SQL Server!

    1. Hello Eyehearttesla,

      You are so welcome! I am glad that I could help. I’m just never sure – but I’m glad I saved you some precious time. I feel so super supported by your commentary here. I am touched by your passion, and grateful to have you in my life on a day-to-day basis. Thank you for supporting my blog, and for speaking so well on my behalf. That said, I was once not very keen on the word, “whimsical,” it’s something that I am noticing people use as a compliment, and when they mean to say that they appreciate reading or becoming more light-hearted. Now, Gravitas! Wow. I am sincerely flattered, and deeply considering whether or not I agree with that one. I would definitely agree with you that I am quite a serious person, from my perspective πŸ˜‰
      Love, Ka

Please drop me a petal from your beautiful self and let me know that you visited :)
