In this sacred village there is a sacred playground. Within this sacred playground you get to be super heroes. Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Alice in Wonderland Persephone, Hades, Kali, God. You get to be all of them like queen, witch, monster, good fairy. This sacred playground includes all of you cry baby, bully, know it all, pig pen. Sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you. When you enter your sacred playground you move into NOW time zone. You dream awake and all dreams come true. There is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and all stories are happily ever after-- AFTER you play your nightmares. You throw temper tantrums, you flail, you whine and wail, and murder and die. You meet the monster. Eat the monster. Become the monster. Befriend the monster. You move past good and evil, move between heaven and hell. You create a magic circle. What protects your sacred playground? Your gargoyles! Your dragons! And the monsters You've made friends with! Magic surrounds your playground with love. In your sacred playground. There is willingness to use what we all have in common- long ears, pointy snouts, fat tongues. Everyone agrees to follow their noses, guts, our hearts. We all desire to be seen, to be heard, and be accepted just the way we are.

Laugh so hard your belly aches.
Laugh so hard you start to cry.
