If You’d Like To Send A Message To India With Maria…

..To Send A Message to Maria

..To Send A Message to Maria

Talking about the trip to India in February, Maria and I came up with this idea; why not take along messages from the people who helped make the trip possible? Why not bring your own beautiful messages directly to India with Maria?

If you would like Maria to bring a message and share it with the victims of sex trafficking in Calcutta that she will be meeting and  teaching, you can sent it to our Post Office Box: P.O. Box 205, Cambridge, N.Y., 12816.

Maria will take the messages to Calcultta and share them with the women she will be seeing there. "We are going to do a lot of good with this money," she told me this afternoon when she got the latest batch of letters coming into the P.O. Box. She has collected enough money to pay for the trip, any additional donations will go directly to helping the women there.

"It is a tremendous blessing to know about people of your caliber," wrote Danielle and June of Saratota, Fla.  "We trust and hope your India trip will be an enormous blessing to the soul-damaged persons in the diabolical sex trade."

They donated $500.

Maureen from Northampton, Mass. wrote that "I loved your post this morning about worthiness, and your gratitude. I think what you're doing is very exciting and worthy of support. Please use this donation as needed. Also, your writing is beautiful, I love the image of your heart softening, your spine straightening and the smile spreading across your face.."

She sent $50.

"There was a time when I was embarrassed to only have a small amount of money to donate to any given cause," wrote Ann from New Hampshire, "as it seemed so paltry. Since running (an animal) rescue group I have realized it is not true. Every little bit counts…I respect what you are about to do."

Ann enclosed a $20 bill.

These messages have been pouring in from all over the country, and it seems proper that those of you who support this journey should be able to write directly to the women you will be helping. If you care to do that, Maria will see that they receive them. How nice for them to know that all these people from so far away care about them and want to support them.

And thanks again.

Maria has enough money for the passage to India now, if you wish to donate further, she will see that the money will be put to good use.

Maria will be writing about this on her blog over the next few months.

And if you wish to have your letters brought to these women directly,  you can also sent the messages to our post office box, P.O. Box 205, Cambridge, N.Y., 12816.

(You do not need to donate to send a message to India with Maria, it would be wonderful for these women to see them and know they are supported and cared for.)

Talking To Animals

Talking To Animals

Talking To Animals

We talk to animals in so many different ways. We touch them, trust them, open our hearts and souls to them. They talk to us in so many ways – by being near us, trusting us, taking food from us, smelling us, mostly I think, through a connection to the heart, we touch hearts with them, and that, I think, is where communication really begins.

Fate Riding A Sunbeam

Fate Riding A Sunbeam

Fate Riding A Sunbeam

The Infrared camera sees the light that I can't see, it caught the sunbeam from the sunrise, cutting across the pasture, it seemed to me that Fate was riding the sunbeam on her morning run, it lifts the heart to see Fate running, she is so filled with joy and purpose. This is how I feel about my own work, my own love, she is, in some odd way, a reflection of it.

Morning Kiss

First, it was Chloe to liked to offer a morning kiss, then the donkeys observed this and began mimicking the pony. Now, we have to kiss all three and give them carrots and bits of corn in the morning. A chore we have come to love.

The Gang Of Four (Romney Posse)

The Gang Of Four

The Gang Of Four

The  Gang Of Four was out in a corner of the pasture this morning, I am struck by the poised, imperious and entitled demeanor of the Romney sheep. They move with our flock, but they stay together and they seem sometimes to be turning up their noses at the ordinary sheep. As their wool grows and reveals itself to be beautiful and distinctive, they look with some disdain at the dogs, they stare directly into my camera, as if in wonderment at my daring to be there.

They are sheep with attitude, they have enriched the farm. I suggested to Maria that they are snooty, but she says they are just being dignified.
