I saw a print called Whirlpool by the Tsimshian shaman artist
Robert Seabatian, from the Pacific Northwest coast, in which he depicts a
wind/water event that frequently occurs in the mouth of the bay leading to
his home. He described the importance, the magic of such events in healing
in the Tsimshian creation myths, is the one who supports the pole on which
the earth spins.
Listening to an astronaut
interviewed recently, I was struck with the interesting implications of
his report that during his couple of months in space he lost 14% of his
bone mass. I started wondering how many generations it would take to look
like a squid, but eventually, returning to Earth, I started seeing bone in
a new way. First as a living force, whatever that means, coming into
existence along an axis in reaction to gravity, but then suspecting that
gravity is a ‘living force’ as well. Of course this line of thought
generates a multitude of questions and one of those questions would focus
on the role of intention and thought in creation.
