“Together again

Gee it’s good to be together again.

I just can’t imagine that you’ve ever been gone.

It’s not starting over, it’s just going on.” ….. Muppets Lyrics

Make sure you look to the right and below, just inside the folds of the eucalyptus leaves where you will see the fledgling Baby Horned Owl sitting next to his big brother (or sister) …

Then the “Peeps” are together under this bush chillaxin’

In the morning light

he winks

sending wishes fluttering ….

If you are in Tucson and would love to visit the four babies they are off of Prince and Cactus in the back of the Natural Resources Park.  When you first enter there are 5 Eucalyptus trees … the nest is located in the third tree on the left ;)

Kwan Yin, Kwan Yin White Buffalo Woman …. April 21, 2012

Filed under: Faerie Dust & Whimsy,Mother Nature,Poems — faeriemagic @ 11:28 pm

I felt quite blessed a few days ago to have seen the emodiment of Kwan Yin in this beautiful bud … She popped up to say hello and the faeries and I gathered her up and placed her on the thrown of leaves where she could easily recline.  Being such a compassionately wise woman, she had a splendid sense of humor as well … giggling as we made sure her cap created a bit of umbrellic shade so she could rest in the sunlight.

A Matter of Pride … Two Tails for the Price of One ;) April 4, 2012

Filed under: Faerie Dust & Whimsy — faeriemagic @ 11:14 pm

I met two beings this week, one, whose name is Pride and the other who had much Pride in himself (in a good way)

Meet Pride, the newest rescue horse at H.E.A.R.T. …. she is super sweet:

She was resuced from an outlaw ranch in town that breeds fighter dogs and is close to the border so many of the law enforcement agencies, Sheriff, Police and County departments all leave it up to one another to take care of the issues plaguing this location.  Luckily, Judy, the owner of this horse rescue non-profit, was able to go in and rescue the newest member of the ranch family.  Gonzo was pleased to meet her as well, although he stayed his distance not knowing her demeanor as of yet.  He heard that some of the other Muppet Crew, namely Kermie, almost had his froggie legs removed by one of the other horses on site.  I assured Gonzo he was quite safe.  I did warn him to keep his large shnoze out of the way though!


Well then we met our next being … a human being by the name, Mario.  He carried much pride within himself for his accomplishments and his wonderful kids.  Meet Mario …

Kermie and Piggy acquired an interview  just the other day … We noticed Mario as he was beboppin’ in the coffee shop to some tunes playin’ over the speakers, and I heard Kermie say, “Let’s hop on over and inquire if he would like to speak with us.”  So that we did.  Mario let us know that he was okay with sharing his story here on my blog.  He was raised in the Bronx and lived there until 1996.  I had him pose in front of this billboard at the shop and he said, “Hey,  how’d you know I was a fighter?”  Turns out Mario fought from the age of 14 through the age of 62.  I asked him how he became a fighter … “My dad turned me into one,” Mario responded.   Kermie asked him the next question … “how was that?”  Mario shared that he grew up in an abusive home where his father would take his anger out upon he and his brothers.  This became the vehicle that drove Mario to stand up for himself in school.  When he  or his brothers were picked on, he would stand up for himself and defend himself.  Mario said, “I didn’t want anyone putting me down like my father did.”   Mario’s passion from then on became about training … he worked out in the local gym, Atzlan Gym, in his neighborhood and would do agility training in the ring as well as push-ups, sit-ups, jump rope and lots of fancy footwork.  Inspired by his ability to train himself and gain the confidence to “hold his own”, Mario took it upon himself to train other students, young men and women, in exercise and boxing.  He wanted to be able to help these youngsters grow up to be able to take care of themselves as well.  Mario admitted, “I am not perfect.  I still have great anger at my father for how he treated all us kids.”  Here in Tucson, AZ  Mario participated in 13 Senior Olympics tournaments and earned 13 Gold Medals in “Chin-ups” category and two Silver and one Gold in swimming.   Thank you Mario for your inspiration and triumph through adversity and building pride within yourself that you can help others achieve.
