Music was my first truly sacred ground.
I learned to compose so I could fill in the times
I was not allowed music with my own music.
Making music, – no matter the "recording quality" – is sacred in my life to this day.
My second truly sacred ground came much later.
After first 19 years, then 16 more years, deeply inside organized and socially-acceptable cults,
this sacred ground was hard won
from the hands of these oppressors
I ripped my mind and soul
back to own, myself.
Owning my soul and mind is extremely sacred ground to me.
My third truly sacred ground
came from the person who first
awakened me from my slumber
in the second cult …
Oh, I was already angry… ANGER for me, is always an indication
that my toes (or more) have been stepped or stomped on
Even if it is my outrage at
another’s toes being trampled (or more)
Because I have ALWAYS seen others as part of me
and me as part of others.
That soul who awakened me
has a name: Wolfie
The Original Wolfie on Yahoo
(who’s toes were trampled by someone who,
though perhaps inadvertently, or perhaps consciously,
stole Wolfie’s name online in 2001)
Wolfie led me to my third sacred ground:
Real and Awake Relation with Another Human Soul.
I have had many lovers, even 2 spouses, prior to
Wolfie’s appearance in my life —
–all of which left me lacking for any pure communication.
I had in fact, abandoned the quest.
Wolfie became a part of my life over near daily contact over
a period of 5 years before I understood the
sacredness of the ground both our feet occupied,
While certainly both human, and thus, flawed;
we put all our effort into truly sharing our lives
from inside ourselves to each other.
By trusting AND inquiring for clarification
in order to ward off one of the "bad guys" in many relationships:
We dare to disagree
in order to maintain the most sacred ground:
our own respective beings.
And in order to maintain our
shared sacred ground
we admit, and own
our truly individual
rights and wrongs
and the universe that lies between.
Then, and only then,
we choose cooperative compromise or
only if it resounds as
truth within us.
We never run out of things to talk about
with this recipe.
Even when life is dull.
