"How we mate, why we stray, and what it means for modern relationships.
Here's some of the things you'll read about on the inside:
Why long-term fidelity can be so difficult for so many.
Why sexual passion tends to fade even as love deepens.
Why many middle-aged men risk everything for an affair.
Why homosexuality persists in the face of standard evolutionary logic.
What the human body reveals about the prehistoric origins of modern sexuality."
I'm looking forward to it.

Here are a few ways I use it in our home:
Whenever I'm feeling a bit frazzled, over-worked, anxious about anything I burn it and sit in front of my alter and pray or meditate or draw my tarot cards. It's method is healing and soothing to my soul.
Whenever we move in to a new space I'll burn it and walk around the home into every room performing a blessing ritual. Basically giving thanks and blessing our new space.
Do you use Sage for spiritual house cleansing or any cleansing for that matter?
Also... the beginnings of some vegan Homemade Coconut Waffles that had my children and husband smacking their syrupy smothered lips. Blog post for this recipe coming soon. The pictures will make your mouth water.
So, when are you coming over for your homemade waffles? I always make enough to share.
"The idea of freedom. The idea of being unspoiled and having rhythms that are uninterrupted by the overdose of the intellect."
Another book that I learned about some years ago and took the time to read during my hiatus from the internet in 2012. I listen to be reminded of what's important - the soul. I listen and read to remember what is dear to me - my wild woman. I listen and read and slowly, sometimes rapidly, are being transformed.
My life needed this book, Clarrisa's wisdom, stories, and teachings. Everything all of a sudden made sense. I was not the "different" one in my family that I was always told I was. My ways were not strange and abnormal like I was taught to believe. There was nothing ever, ever, ever wrong with me.
As a child I would listen to the birds sing and learn their songs. I would listen to the breeze blow through the tree leaves and hear it's message. I felt the bees hum within me whenever they were around. I heard my name whispered all the time and when I turned around no one was there. I saw shadows of people in the corners of my eyes that as I got older embraced them as friends. These things I experienced made me special. They are a part of who I am and I no longer push them away because of shame.
Does this sound like you?
Did you grow up feeling strangely different from those you called family, or couldn't explain why you always felt out of place? Don't be ashamed. You are not alone. You have a place, it just may have not been there.
Creating... his musical beats and rhythms. Tapping into his creative flow, enjoying his pleasures. He loves making music and DJ-ing. His hours at work only allow this to happen during small windows of his free time. I can only imagine what he could do with even more time. Those days will be here soon enough. For now, he enjoys these little moments he has and I enjoy watching him flow.
What do you enjoy doing / creating but don't have the time that you would like to do it?
Do you have an animal(s)? Have you ever felt the kind of connection I'm speaking about?
My mind slips in and out of worlds. The one inside my camera and the other on the other side. Holding it steady, hearing my breath as I inhale and exhale just before I snap.
Currently where the light is.
