More pictures tomorrow of spooky cauldron and the fun kids! Happy Halloween. Great, they moved our winter storm warning up right through middle of trick- or- treaters. Wind, snow, rain. Gees....
Ok, here is the scoop for keeping your punkins fresh a few days--I'm hoping six! Best is if you don't carve it until a day or two ahead, but I'm one who likes to get in the spirit early. So: 1. Wash your punkin carefully and dry it. 2. Carve your pumpkin. It's better to … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Jack O’ Lantern Tips on freshness
She's mine and I made her. Turned out better than I thought I could do, never tried it, but it was hard work! Now to get her to last five nights. Or rather six nights. Putting them out AFTER Halloween seems anti-climactic. But our temperature is perfect. Will need to spritz her every day with … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – All Hallow’s Eve — “When witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers ’tils near Halloween'”
Serendipity - John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. Love this movie. Serendipity is not exactly the same as Jung's Synchronicity, but it's close. I had always been writing about Einstein's theory of relativity and Jung's theories of synchronicity without knowing specifically about them, or rather, being totally aware of them. I should say. I understood them … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Serendipity
Carl Jung. My in-progress fantasy dinner party: Carl Jung, Albert Einstein, Henry David Thoreau, Ernest Hemingway, Jesus Christ, Jim Morrison, Robin Williams. Break through. Don't underestimate dreams. Most cultures consider their dream life as relevant as their "waking" one and would debate which is more relevant. We are mostly asleep in our lives! I've been … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Dreamwalking–Asleep in my life?!
Dream traveling. Something Native Americans do instinctively. To meet with "elderhearts," other worlds and realms, alternate realities, to experience Einstein's theories of Time, past present, future, a way to travel soul to soul. Not something we westerners normally consider. I'm still hoping to control my dreams. Invoke my mother, maybe "travel" a bit, hope she'll … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Jungian Thoughts and Lucid Dreams — Native American Practice –useful today?
Steak Marinade: My buddy Mark Sisson just wrote a blog saying that he knew he would lose followers for this blasphemy but that steaks were better on a cast iron skillet (not grill pan) than they were even over charcoal or wood. He further qualified that if you used a marinade on lamb or other … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Marinade
More: My grandson was here. So we did a dry run for Halloween. Oh here is his angry punkin. I will carve the bigger one closer to Halloween. Not sure I can pull off Wicked above, but some version of witch. We had a lot of fun. I need another mist maker. One wasn't quite … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Halloween Dry Run
Worth another posting. Care-givers get a unique chance to work through all that crap that gets left unfinished from childhood. You don't really hear about that much. Though the first thing I would tell people is not to expect to be super-human. There are going to be times you have emotions that aren't perfect. We … Continue reading Carnivore Dreams – Second Chances
