Unblock!

I was blocked. I was way past deadline on a crucial phase of writing. I quit trying to push through, went into my bedroom and closed the door. I sat on the bed, ate a piece of chocolate, and partook of herbal medicine, then settled down in the muted light. I could feel the block […]

Celebrating Silver

There is something extraordinarily beautiful about BEING AN ELDER. It took me a while to get here. I cruised through the decades pretty blithely – until my 70th. That one hit me hard. Now I could feel the weight of years behind me and the lightness of the years ahead. My body went through some […]

My Name is Terra!

Hello! Glad to meet you. I’m Terra Kano, Heroine in The Shaman Chronicles (previously called the Energy Unveiled series). I’m passionately in love with Nature and every living thing on Planet Earth. I LOVE how everything is more-than-human.        While I may have sailed past the half-century mark, I’m prime in every way, and […]

The Crystalline Grid Is Not Broken!

The Crystalline Grid is a critical component in Protectors of the Grid, Book 1 of The Shaman Chronicles (reborn from The Crystalline Vision, Book 1 of the Energy Unveiled series).  The Grid is a configuration of energy that flows around and enlivens our lovely planet. This grid is not merely a figment of my imagination. There is […]

The End of Her World

She watched her mother’s face as all color drained away. For once, her mother had heard her. It was a small victory, but a victory nonetheless. She wasn’t used to winning. Now, watching her mother collapse into the kitchen chair, her stomach clenched and her eyes burned. The crippled hands that had always been so […]

"Friend or foe?"

“Could be either,” Kale replied. Lila, the Mo’o, is an important character in The Crystalline Vision, and a most unusual one. A Mo’o is a mythical being unique to the Hawaiian Islands. An article in Maui Magazine describes them this way. “Most moʻo of legend are female, shapeshifters capable of appearing as beautiful maidens or […]

Have You Found the True Story?

A Story Teller in Apache tradition is someone who listens carefully to the details of an experience, then takes those same elements and reframes the experience from a cosmic perspective. Maybe the Point of View shifts. Maybe the Story Teller sees things the person missed. The Story Teller’s job is to make you the center […]

On break with the band…

It’s fun to play with everyone’s fantasies! Being a band groupie this weekend will be just as much fun as it sounds, but probably not like it woulda been xxx years ago, when we were all young(er) and stupid(er). There will be none of the sex, drugs and rock and roll that is legendary on band tours. Ummm – there may be sex – wives and husbands will be along – and herbal edibles to keep your spirits high. For sure there will be great music to get our booties shaking. But the 5-hour drive is along the crest of fabulous mountains and the quaint little town of Vilcabamba is in the Valley of Longevity. The weekend will include numerous spa treatments and pampering.

Sharra? Who the heck…

…is Sharra? Wait! Isn’t that Barbara? Barbara Snow? Well, yes. You’re right. Her earth suit and everything that came with it has been heretofore identified as Barbara Jean Brooks Brdecka Snow Snow-Erlin, Mom, Sis, Honey, or Hey, You! But you can call her Barbe, the childhood nickname her mama gave her (before Barbie’s were invented). […]
