Intention and perception are the twin powers that will open you up to a new way of being.
To “need” something repels it or pushes it away. To “try” to make something happen can be very
“trying,” using up valuable energy. Instead of being needy, let it be the heart’s desire that
“attracts.” Sometimes great effort is not what is needed. On a lower level, some things can be
achieved through great effort. But as one advances non-effort is more powerful. Meditate on the
Buddhist idea of the “effortless effort.” “Being” nearly always trumps “doing.”

Some of you have been asking about Kat’s new Jewelry site. We’ve been working on KatnCo the past few weeks, and it is finally live, including the shopping cart. The site is presently about 50% finished… all the photos will be retaken in the next week, I think, and I’ll get them up as quickly as I can. But the site is active now, and working. Stop by and drop her a note!
Winter is a time to slow from the activity of the summer. The garden still slumbers under blankets of mulch and leaves. A few early bulb shoots peek out. When it rains, I generally fish a few worms out of Arrow’s outside water dish. I think they are attracted to the warmer metal. Over to the compost pile for them. Still, life is full. The great grandkids are here most days. The youngest, Landon, is three, and loves to pick things up. Which is generally ok. I just don’t know where I’m going to find them. He is a cyclone of energy. Skyler is a year older, already into his little computer games. Kat is very content to the babysitting… she is far more family oriented than I’ve ever been. She has taught this lone wolf a heap about relationships.
Lately when I’m not engraving rocks, I’ve been messing with beta software, Themeframe and Headway. They are both WordPress website making programs, and are attempting great leaps forward in site design. Very interesting.
