Releasing Hannah

Sweet Hannah Jenner left this world too soon to suit those of us she left behind. I know in my heart that she's moved on to the next thing, whatever that may be. But it was hard to see her leave this world so soon after she got here.

I've had some of Hannah's ashes sitting in my home since last September. Her mom, the goddess Diana, gave packets of ashes to the tribe at Live & Learn for us to sprinkle far and wide. At first I just couldn't bear to let her go and no one place felt "right." But then I thought of Country Fair. What a perfect place of celebration, acceptance, freedom, individuality, joy, love and peace. So Donna, Qacei and I spent last Sunday releasing Hannah to all corners of the Fair. She made it into spirit pouches, sacred burning sage, a river, a hollow, 2 parades, and one drum circle.

See you on the other side Hannah. Thanks for reminding me to Be Here Now.

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. " ~Gilda Radner
