A pattern that morphs, growing with those all around in a fractal dance, stretching dimensions... Magic and poetry are natural ways to express my spirit and to help me to be able to grasp the incredible extent of the gifts we share; that is the universe at our very fingertips yielding much that is both imagined and unimaginable. Yet imagination is key.
While all that may sound good and fine, perhaps a bit over the top? I do concentrate on the higher ideals, otherwise get enmired in day to day drudge. And basically that does not appeal in the least, in fact, it's not worth living. That is where the practice of natural religion helps, without parallel. By enjoining the Earth in all Her cyclicities, even in the universe at large, I find meaning, purpose and grand wonderment. Perhaps my time in the Universalist Unitarian church influenced me, but I already accepted most of their views prior to joining. Besides, unity is a very good thing.
Please forgive me if I wrote you two messages in the past few days. For some reason, it seemed that the first one did not transmit.
Bless you friend and may the coming Midsummer bring warmth and wealth!

I'm sorry to wait so long to get back to you. I keep seeing your messages around the places that I frequent here. Your insights and ideas align well with my own and I will be honored to count you as a friend.
I'm sure that you are aware of the geologic features that make up Northeast Wisconsin. East of Green Bay, and to the South, we have dolomitic limestone which presents many fissures and eacg becomes a conduit directly to ground water. West of the Fox River Valley, the wolf river watershed drops down from the North, bearing sand, gravel and detritus from about ten centuries back.
Making change takes time, so we are looking into the future to see the good that we do through tree planting. Your help is greatly appreciated!
I would like to help you with your efforts toward starting a not-for-profit. What is the goal or mission that you will have? Our long-term goal is to have a school that has the entire curriculum devoted to sustainability. Folks need to know that rather than a fad, this whole "green" lifestyle is for the long run. Either we make necessary changes, or humankind will perish from the planet taking a large number of other species with us!
There are so many different forces bringing us to deeper awareness of critical ecological problems, that those in denial about them are facing a more and more difficult time "just saying 'NO'." to the truth.
Bless you brother, Tony Saladino- Director ECO-Tours of WI 1445 Porlier Street, GB, WI 54301
I'm trying to make contact with as many Wisconsin Pagans as possible. I'm up here in Green Bay, and am on a mission, reforesting as many acres as possible with as many like-minded folks as possible. My wife and I started a local not-for-profit that has planted over fifteen thousand trees so far, with the help of hundreds of folks.
It is my intention to continue to raise funds for the continuation of this important work. If you are interested in helping, let me know.
