“the ocean is the beginning of the earth” & “A NEW WAY”

Playing a special show in LA opening for STARHAWK again! 12NOON SUN DEC 7 2014 – GET YOUR TICKETS FOR THIS INSPIRING, EMPOWERING COMMUNITY EVENT TODAY!  http://www.eventbrite.com/e/starhawk-2014-climate-workshop-winters-dream-ritual-tickets-13340013339

dear friends ~ have been dreaming for many moons that our beautiful planet Gaia generates her own water somewhere from deep within the core, meditations & music writing lead me to this all the time ~ and for the past several years, when I do deep grounding, I always connect to WATER at the center of the Earth ~  well, found this!

“It’s good evidence the Earth’s water came from within,” says Steven Jacobsen of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The hidden water could also act as a buffer for the oceans on the surface, explaining why they have stayed the same size for millions of years.

Jacobsen’s team used 2000 seismometers to study the seismic waves generated by more than 500 earthquakes. These waves move throughout Earth’s interior, including the core, and can be detected at the surface. “They make the Earth ring like a bell for days afterwards,” says Jacobsen.

“it begins with the sunlight
gleaming crystalline
first a drop forms
finally a stream
between the ice and the ocean
there’s a growing rising tide
forming unseen rivers”

Thank YOU, Silver Lake! Prelim election results

<<In the hotly contested Silver Lake election, candidates on the new slate “Yours Not Ours” carried the day. Incumbents fared poorly overall and only two members of the Empower Silver Lake slate prevailed.

In Silver Lake, civic engagement could be called controversy’s silver lining — Saturday’s election recorded the biggest turnout of any neighborhood council election so far this year.>>

<<“I really feel that this is emphasizing the value of being neighborly in a neighborhood,” said Amy Clarke, the election’s leading vote-getter with 737 total. “We’re entering kind of a new phase … There are new outreach strategies emerging, there are new communities being forged, there are new bonds being grown. And I believe that everyone who’s served the board well so far will continue to serve the community well … but that potentially a change in board culture can lead to a shift in the culture of the community, and I’m really hopeful that we’re going to be able to move forward in a constructive and compassionate and hopefully harmonious way.”

To date, roughly halfway through the city’s neighborhood council elections, the SLNC’s voter turnout surpasses any other neighborhood council election, and was more than double the 507 who voted in the last election in 2012.>>

Election results – pending any of the 60 provisional ballots and any further matters – should be final by Friday April 18.  Stay tuned for updates.

Thank YOU, Silver Lake!  This is YOUR victory :)

In gratitude, Amy Clarke

I love Silver Lake ~ Neighborhood Council Elections Sat Apr 12, 2014 ~ why it matters to me

Hello dear ones,

After a full day out in community since 9AM, my beautiful daughter is napping. I am pausing before heading out to the piano to create music in the garden to reflect upon the fullness from this day.

I love Silver Lake.

I feel at home here. Connected and complete, encircled by community. While the ride has been full of peaks & valleys, I have learned more in my time of service than I might have imagined; and not even lessons I thought they might be.

Serving the neighborhood has greatly inspired me, humbled me, transformed me. As an artist and a musician, it can be a challenge to find the right balance to do both, but it IS possible & inspires GREATER art; the more one is able to tap into the spirit of a place, listen to those in community, unite with tribe, redefine local family, grow from the ground up. It infuses my art, music, expression, passion, pride.

I also have deepened bonds, connections & groundwork ~ it only makes natural sense for Gaia Grove to be centered here in Silver Lake as well.  And, since like in gardening, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it ~ Quod Severis Metes (As You Sow, So You Shall Reap) ~ I am grateful to serve the community in which I live.

This is my original home from whence I landed from thousands of miles away, many years ago; this place welcomed me, nourished me, gave me sustenance.  I love it here, and I listen to the people I BOTH live with and share with in community.

I am running again for Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, as an At-Large Representative for YOU, Silver Lake, and for future of all together, though, recognizing that I serve you, I humbly ask for your vote SAT APR 12, 2014, 10am-4pm, Micheltorena School, Silver Lake, but also, and more importantly, your vision.  Please message me and share your ideas, your dreams, your possibilities for our shared space and let’s co-create it!

Please check out the YOURS not OURS coalition Recommendations: www.yoursnotours.org

PLEASE VOTE: 7 At Large, but only 2 per Region, and you may only vote one region (all may vote At-Large ~ At-Large: Charles Herman-Wurmfeld, Amy Clarke, Teresa Sitz, David Modern, Heather Carson, Kinoka Ogsbury  Region 1Helen Dion, Joshua Gomez, Region 2: Georgene Goodin, Karen Speitel Region 3: Seamus Garrity Region 4: Ted Adams James Bigelow Region 5: Frances Tran Region 6: Matthew Desario, Joe Ryan Ferrell Region 7: John Wingler, Hope Taylor Arnold   Coalition also supports Jeff Wayne (At-Large), Joe Malone (3), Matthew Mooney (5) 

PERSONAL additional recommendations (some more good choices) are Lisa Marie Hart (At-Large), Dorit Dowler Guerrero (5), Karina Andrade (7)

Love, Amy
