The MacRae Family Motto: FORTITUDINE, with fortitude, strength of mind that allows one to endure pain, danger or adversity with courage.
May the powers of the One, the source of all creation;
All persuasive, omnipotent, eternal,
May the Goddess, The Lady Moon;
and The God, Horned Hunter of the Sun;
May the powers of the Spirits of the Stones
Rulers of the elemental realms;
May the powers of the stars above
And earth below.
Bless this place, and this time,
And I who am with you.
~ Scott Cunningham
Someone once asked me why I thought we are here. I believe it's to love each other, take care of each other and respect each other. I also believe that every moment each of us, no matter how small we think we are, can make the world a better place. Even a small token like a smile or a thank you can make all the difference to someone else. The way to peace is love ~ let's love one another!
A young girl is walking through a meadow when she sees a butterfly impaled upon a thorn. Very carefully she releases it and the butterfly starts to fly away. Then it comes back and changes into a beautiful good fairy. "For your kindness," she tells the little girl, "I will grant you your fondest wish." The little girl thinks for a moment and replies, "I want to be happy." The fairy leans toward her and whispers in her ear and then suddenly vanishes.
As the girl grew, no one in the land was more happy than she. Whenever anyone asked her for the secret of her happiness, she would only smile and say, "I listened to a good fairy."
As she grew quite old, the neighbors were afraid the fabulous secret might die with her. "Tell us, please," they begged, "tell us what the fairy said." The now lovely old lady simply smiled and said, "She told me that everyone, no matter how secure they seemed, had need of me!"
We all need each other.
"Celebrate the earth and sea, each bubbling brook and every tree...
Celebrate the full moon's light, brisk evening air, the stars at night...
Celebrate the clear blue sky, the rising sun, clouds drifting by...
Celebrate another year of living life, of being here."

Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Of water flowing, rising and falling,
Sometimes advancing, sometimes receding.
May the stream of your life flow unimpeded!
Deep peace of the running wave to you!
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Which fans your face on a sultry day,
The air which you breathe deeply, rhythmically,
Which imparts to you energy, consciousness, life.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you!
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Who, herself unmoving, harbors the movements
And facilitates the life of the ten thousand creatures.
While resting contented, stable, tranquil.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you!
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Which stay invisible till darkness falls
And discloses their pure and shining presence
Beaming down in compassion on our turning world.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you!
~ a Gaelic poem

Spanish - un poco,
||Tree-hugging/dirt worshiping nature freak, Beatlemaniac, poet, musician, bohemian, shower singer, lima bean/polka dots/stripes hater, New York Rangers fan, star gazer, beach bum, goddess daughter of Hawaiian and Gaelic roots, believer in dreams and the paradise I believe the world is meant to be. Growing up in San Francisco in the 60s, I still believe love is the answer.
My totems are the butterfly and the lion. Like a butterfly I am always growing and changing, and like the lion I'm fiercely devoted to and protective of those I love.
And like many a Libra, I'm a hopeful romantic. I love mushy songs and mushy movies. If it has a happy ending I cry, if it has a sad ending I cry. Barry White could bring me to my knees. I love flowers and love letters. And I'm very affectionate with the people I love and let them know all the time how I feel about them. I think it's the most important thing we can do for the people who mean the most to us.

||“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" ~ Jack Kerouac
