Photo “Solvitur ambulando – It is solved by walking” by Niki Flow. Inspired by Nicole Huguenin, Chief Dream Architect, Wild Dream Walks

#18* in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram. Nicole Huguenin is not only one of our Under1000Skies photo contributors, she is one of our city artist-pack distribution volunteers.  The first time I read “solvitur ambulando” was during our shared KindSpring.org challenge, “The 1st Annual KindSpring Eowyn Challenge” in September 2015.  The origin of the saying is lost in time, but if I had to guess, I would say it was first said by a Roman mother to her child who was too long indoors (or perhaps to all her family members).  “Solvitur ambulando!” (It solved her problem, too.)

THIS WEEK ON UNDER1000SKIES

Every Friday from now on we’ll be highlighting the posts of the week.  This week’s Gems include:  Photo (“Florida Flowers”) from Mike Downs.  photo (“NYC Looking Up”) and an original poem (“My Wish for You Today”) from Niki Flow.  Painting (“Dark Phoenix“)  from Marvel Comics.  The quotes shared are part of the Divine Feminine Series, Nos. 15-18, and are from Frida Kahlo, Louise Hay, Emma Goldman and Melanie Koulouris.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera, born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón was a Mexican painter known for her self-portraits. Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home, which is known as “La Casa Azul,” the Blue House.

Louise Lynn Hay is an American motivational author and the founder of Hay House, she has authored several New Thought self-help books, including the 1984 book, You Can Heal Your Life.

Emma Goldman was an anarchist known for her political activism, writing, and speeches. She played a pivotal role in the development of anarchist political philosophy in North America and Europe in the first half of the 20th century.

Melanie Koulouris. (from her profile) “Wife to an amazing husband who is my soulmate. Stay home mom to my two beautiful babies, Olivia and Luca. Blogger, creative writer, and forever student of life. Writing has always been a passion of mine since I was very young. I have always considered myself a free spirit with a gypsy soul, surrendering to where ever life takes me. I am grateful to be able to share my quotes and sayings with you as well as others that bring me so much inspiration.”

*Our Mother is dying.  We can stop it, but in order to know what we’re up against, we must clear away the intricately-woven cobwebs spun over the past six decades by the 0.001 percent.    Today is the last day to view the full-length film, Before the Flood:  Leonardo DiCaprio and National Geographic

Full Movie available until November 7th

 

LIE WEAVERS

This movie was chilling. I really appreciated the way Leo took us on this journey over two years. I felt like I was learning with him.  What I learned above all is that it will take all of us, really quickly working together, to fix this.
