The lunatic is on the grass

The lunatic is on the grass

Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs

Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall

The lunatics are in my hall

The paper holds their folded faces to the floor

And every day the paper boy brings more

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon

And if there is no room upon the hill

And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too

I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

The lunatic is in my head

The lunatic is in my head

You raise the blade, you make the change

You re-arrange me ’til I’m sane

You lock the door

And throw away the key

There’s someone in my head but it’s not me

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear

You shout and no one seems to hear

And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes

I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

You think this song was written in a full lunar eclipse ? Experiencing all the emotional symptoms of the various phases of the moon in just a few hours, topping it off with with Mars in retrograde ?

Wow, what an epic performance from Mother Nature as we watched the moon shade over, turn full blood red and then slowly begin to clear again ! The weather was really perfect here in Durban, SA with clear skies and windless evening. Many shifts and transformational journeys started out over the past few days with the feminine Divine making a rather large impact. On Friday I attended a fundraiser for the  Jess Foord Foundation and it was an emotional event to say the least. Rest assured that it was not only the lunar activities creating this. Jess’ story is a sad and violent , yet inspiring one. This strong and vibrant young woman turned her dark experience around and determined to create something light from it. She now heads this foundation with a network of amazing team leaders working on and behind the scenes, ensuring that things get done. Our attention was brought to a few of the “unofficial” statistics and some of them which really moved me are as follows :

There is a rape in SA every 9 minutes, 64% of these are children ! We were asked to donate colouring books and crayons, for the children to use while they are waiting to testify and also to help bring a small amount of “normality” into the very exhausting and daunting task of laying charges. My heart was broken at the thought of these young girls being in this situation. I was involved with the Township Yogi Project   where we volunteered our time to teach yoga to a cross section of ages. Most of which were children. It was while doing this that I first realised the amount of stress these children experience daily. I noticed how difficult it was for them to lie in Sivasana with their feet, arms and legs relaxed. In fact, it was a non- event at the beginning of the class. However towards the end of the session, most of them managed to feel more relaxed and it was visible to us teachers too. The Jess Foord Foundation runs parallel projects to help alleviate some of the shame and blame associated with this ugly crime and also takes young boys to educate them regarding respect and acceptance of the NO word. If this story has moved you, please click on the link to their site above and send them words of encouragement, see the projects they offer and maybe you are able to make a difference in some child’s life. 

Moving forwards and upwards to help raise our vibrations as we move towards National Women’s Day with a few quotes :
