Our endpoints are the Daughter of Posh between Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, laid out as cosmic dots of alignment synching us to the land beneath our feet.  We have a new beginning with the last full moon of this year and decade on 12.12 at 12.12 AM ET. That’s my sign from the universe that I can officially walk out of The Blues.  My journey through grief has delivered me to rock bottom.

I’m broken but through Divine Mercy I’m healing from the inside out.  Being at rock bottom gives clarity that only comes from climbing up the rock face side of salvation mountain.  So, I’m teaching myself and being my own best student as I experience my own transformative healing through marks of resistance made with needle and thread. Marks of Resistance Online is about participating in a creative hands activity in a season connected to long-standing traditional indigenous practices from the days of Algonquin Moon Lodges.  These traditional indigenous ways of knowing are lifted up by the prayers, joys and heartaches of our ancestors.
