The Wounded Healer


Sometimes he calls himself 'The Wounded Healer'...
Wounded, we all are.
Healers, we all have the power to be.
We just gotta believe.
He has gone to Africa now to do what his heart, as a doctor and as a soldier of peace, calls for.
His name is Maithri and if you have not met him yet
please check out his virtual world, The Soaring Impulse,
as it is part of yours and mine
and together we are really all as one...
grains of sand forming the beaches...

He has a link, as do I, to the Hunger Site on his blog.
It is part of the Greater Good Network.
The Home Page is paid for by advertisers and ALL of this revenue goes too support the charity partners.
The Charity Partners include The Hunger Site, The Animal Rescue Site, The Rainforest Site, The Child Health Site, The Breast Cancer Site, Global Girlfriend & The Literacy Site.
Once you enter the home page, you may click on any one of these sites and should you purchase anything, your proceeds will go to that specific arena.
There is a section called 'Gifts that Give More' which is tax deductible in the US and allows you to drop a mere twenty bucks to do something significant like vaccinate 10 shelter dogs for kennel cough or provide a stove for refugees in Darur...the list goes on.
However, this site offers some great products through many different sponsors.
I can't encourage you enough to shop their pages for some awesome win/win deals.
I favor the Hunger Site and love that I am able to buy some awesome gifts and such while also helping provide rice for those in need.
I also encourage you to check out the artisans who make many of the products that are available. It will really make you think twice about buying stuff mass produced in China.
I have to say that I have been most impressed with the quality of the items I have purchased....
and I have bought an array of cool things...
handmade musical instruments, bags, clothing, jewelry and more.
Oh, and the shipping time? Just a couple few days!
In summary, I encourage all of you to check THIS SITE out.
Click on the yellow button that says 'Click here to give...It's Free' and if you want to shop, shop with confidence that it is a win/win/win.
If you don't wanna shop, still open the link & click the yellow button. It pings their site & keeps the advertisers happy to keep on supporting such a wonderful venture. ;) And then, do it again tomorrow...

Sister Sing...read something somewhere and it said 'If you can't do it you can still do something...so do something We all contribute in ways, big and small, known and unknown. Peace will win Sister...I know you know...xoxox

Oceans...Yes he does. In so many ways & on so many levels, as do you. Sparkly, golden, white or brown, fine or coarse...we all grains of sand...collectively beautiful, strong & moving...

Monty...p&l to you, my friend.

KJ...LoL, I actually wrote this post last week-end and find myself feeling more awestruck by Maithri with each passing day. Sisters are good. I think it's be about 7 weeks now before I get to see them on the sands of the eastern shores... and we all are looking forward to the peaceful sounds, sights and smells...Much Love to You Dear Girl!

Happy Easter Holiday to you, ma'am.
I do hope you've made a killing of black jelly beans.....

<-- read the coloured words for an awesome message! :-)

Bit on the weary side this evening--I'm certain a good read will serve me well.
