I trust that my creativity and truth will create a place of security for me.

The phrase 'we are the ones we've been waiting for' is not original to Obama, but comes from the great Jamaican-American poet, June Jordan's "Poem for South African Women"--->

(originally found at this blog)

check it out.

"poem for (south african) women"Our own shadows disappear as the feet of thousands
by the tens of thousands pound the fallow land
into new dust that
rising like a marvelous pollen will be
even as the first woman whispering
imagination to the trees around her made
for righteous fruit
from such deliberate defense of life
as no other still
will claim inferior to any other safety
in the world

The whispers too they
intimate to the inmost ear of every spirit
now aroused they
carousing in ferocious affirmation
of all peaceable and loving amplitude
sound a certainly unbounded heat
from a baptismal smoke where yes
there will be fire

And the babies cease alarm as mothers
raising arms
and heart high as the stars so far unseen
nevertheless hurl into the universe
a moving force
irreversible as light years
traveling to the open eye

And who will join this standing up
and the ones who stood without sweet company
will sing and sing
back into the mountains and
if necessary
even under the sea:

we are the ones we have been waiting for.

from wiki article

"Bisexuality means I am free and I am as likely to want to love a woman as I am likely to want to love a man, and what about that? Isn’t that what freedom implies?"[9]

"If you are free, you are not predictable and you are not controllable. To my mind, that is the keenly positive, politicizing significance of bisexual affirmation... to insist upon the equal validity of all the components of social/sexual complexity."[9]

"Does our sexual or racial identity compel an activist intersection with such a horrifying status quo or not? Is it sexual or racial identity that will catapult each of us into creative agency for social change? I would say, I hope so. But also, I do not believe that who you are guarantees anything important about what you choose to mean in the context of others’ lives...."[9]

"When we heard about the hippies, the barely more than boys and girls who decided to try something different ... we laughed at them. We condemned them, our children, for seeking a different future. We hated them for their flowers, for their love, and for their unmistakable rejection of every hideous, mistaken compromise that we had made throughout our hollow, money-bitten, frightened, adult lives" ("Poem for South African Women", Passion: New Poems (1977-1980); publ. Boston: Beacon Press, 1980).
"We are the ones we have been waiting for."[10] (Alice Walker used this line as the title of a book of essays, Barack Obama used the line frequently in his 2008 U.S. presidential campaign)

Otter and Avatar

I have just witnessed a sign from nature:

After watching Avatar in Branson with my Tarryn, we headed down to the lake to reflect. As we approached the dark guided only by the moon, we heard a splash in the water. It was an otter. We gained its trust through patience and Tarryn's clicking sounds. :)

This is what the Otter means:



Joy, Primal Feminine Energy

Otters awaken curiosity. They remind us that everything is interesting
if we look at it from the right angle.

The Otter totem is connected to
the primal feminine energies of life:
the elements of both Earth and Water are present in Otter medicine.

With an Otter totem, you must remember the beauty of a balanced female side,
creating a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions.
Otter teaches that balanced female energy is not catty or jealous,
but it is sisterhood and sharing with others.
Otter expresses joy for others.

Remember that all of us, both men and women, have a feminine side.

If an Otter has entered your life, it may be time to find some play time
in your life, to awaken your inner child.
Allow events to unfold naturally in your life. Be careful not to hang on the material things
in your life that bind you or become a burden.
Become Otter and move gently into the river of life.
