Now more than ever – at this time of Dire Beauty:

The world needs its Tricksters!

Dedicated to being agents of liberating blessing,

compassion with sizzle, allied with Nature’e evolutionary genius

– that loves against all odds.


Coyote, Raven, seeds that sprout after cataclysm,

jaunty detectives journeying to the Underworld to restore

human affairs to be in accord with the mandate of heaven and earth,

are all our colleagues with whom we are destined

to rendezvous this Autumnal Equinox.


Let’s harvest earned optimism

at this Time of Dire Beauty…


“Be jaunty, even though fully informed,”

sayeth Wendell Berry.


So much incentive (ack) and opportunity

being proffered to us that Sane Reverence

may assume Cultural Narrative Lead.




Inaugurating a guiding story strategy for Autumn

– woo-hoo, more fun to navigate

this cuckoo maelstrom with others…


Myriad forms of cahooting:

No time to face this election alone


come join Trickster Training Council

where we experimentally convene that our language,

metaphor and story be in accord with our dedicated hearts.

We transcend doom and gloom (“no future in nihilism”) with jaunty aplomb.


As David Grimes quips,

“If we’re not having fun – we’re just not serious enough!”
