"I'm in love, I do not fear"
As I woke-up today, I said good morning to the little oak tree that is in a small pot by my bed. We are waiting until the spring when the ground is no longer frozen then, we’re moving to the forest. Well, the little oak will move to the forest. I usually visit.
I smiled, I saw the sunlight shining in the room. I glanced over to Blackfoot Chief Many Turning Robes and wished Him a good morning as well. There is a sketch on my wall of Him and we often converse on different matters. He has patience, I don’t – we talk about it. We’re still talking ... the Chief has his eyebrow raised and makes me laugh. He seems too serious at times, that’s all.
I stretched, put-on a pair of pants and walked over next door. It is literally next door to my bedroom: my Dacian room – red, yellow and blue. The bottom trim around the room is blood-red, the walls are a bright-pure yellow and the ceiling is a blue that reminds me of the sky in a clear summer morning. Red signifies the sunrise in the morning; yellow is the day-light and blue represents the nightfall. Us, Dacians have honored these colours for thousands of years. Nothing has changed. To this day, this is the Romanian national flag.
I wished good morning to Ninja as I walked in the room. (Ninja is my African Odoe Pike.) Always starving this fish ... wow ... I think I have the definition of greed right here with me. His attitude is: I will eat everything in sight so I can be the biggest and nobody else can be as big as me. Any food which enters the tank, he has to eat right-away. No matter if he was fed a second before ... I don’t blaime him, his brain is probably no bigger than my thumb. He just has his survival instincts. He’s a nice guy. Not everyone thinks so, since he only eats other live fish ...
As I pulled the curtains on the windows to the side, the Sun invaded the room. Awesomeness!! This is how I come to Life each morning – beautiful! I love the Sun. There are no words for me to describe how I feel when I see Him ... just pure love. Always makes me smile, even thinking about Him makes me happy.
At this point, I usually turn-on my computer and look for music. I need music almost all the time. I live through sound-vibrations – they are very similar to Light for me; extremely important.
I found the song I was looking for and smiled again. I thought of the Sunrise Ceremony and I gave thanks to Wakan Tanka (the Creator/Grandfather/Great Spirit) for this morning and for this day. I am thankful for the opportunity to be here, to exist in this beautiful mysterious place. I smiled again and while listening to the song I picked, I thought I would write this piece of writing because it is another day, a beautiful day, a magical day and I wanted to honor it.
