Before you read any farther, click on the link above . . .

A great tribute, isn't it? I was reminded of the poet, Rumi, and his advice that when our time comes we should "seek for our resting place, not in the earth, but in the hearts of men."

I also mentioned last week that I would be attending a Native American sweat lodge over the weekend as part of the summer solstice, and as promised, prayers were said in Mykiedave's honor and a tobacco blessing was done for both him and Holly.

I also presented a Pendelton blanket to the Sweat Lodge Chief and dedicated it to Mykiedave. It's called "The Storyteller - Keep The Fires Burning." The title seemed appropriate.

It was a beautiful day in North Idaho!

The sweat lodge was set up and gifts and honorings were placed on the mesa in front of it.

Even though I didn't know Mykiedave in the "real life" sense, in many ways I knew him a lot better than the people who live next door to me.

But unlike my noisy neighbors, I will truly miss Mykiedave . . .

What you did is absolutely wonderful!

It amazes me, this Internet thing, of how it truly touches each of our lives!

I haven't been around in a while and I don't post too often, but I was shocked when I saw this post. Holly, I am so sorry for your loss, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Even though I didn't know him, Dave seems like he was a wonderful, kind hearted person. He will be deeply missed, but just remember he will always be with you in spirit.

I wish I could like it, but just can't get into it for some reason.

Dear Earth Spirit,

What a wonderful, thoughtful and beautiful tribute to MykieDave! I am sure he was there and felt the same.

:D
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.Posted Image

Oh, man, I just now found out as well. It really saddens me...although I did not know MD either, he always seemed so upbeat and kind on the boards. He was a real prescence.

Holly seems like a wonderful lady and I just hate thinking of her having to go on without Md. Again, i never nmet her, but we had some correspondence about a famous relative of mine. She seemed very kind.

My hearts and prayers to Holly and family...

  • Interests:My biggest interests are reading and writing. I also love to research my genealogy and love to research other little historical people or events that catch my attention. I am really getting into homespun crafts and have recently learned howe to weave a basket, make my own paper and am currently learning to carve wood. <br /><br />I am married (10 years in 2006) and have two daughters who will be 10 and 8 in 2006. We all enjoy hanging around outside in our own yard, but also are fond of grabbing a South Carolina map, looking at it and saying &quot;this looks like a cool place&quot; and we will take off and drive there. <br /><br />I also enjoy meeting other people and learning about other places and cultures and have a few penpals that I am trying to be better at writing to regularly.

I did not have the pleasure of getting to know Mykiedave as well as some ghostvillagers, but his name is familiar to me.

My heart and blessings go out to Holly and to all his friends and families. There is a saying that no one is really ever gone if they are remembered and loved. If this is true, then Mykiedave will certainly be around for eternity.

((All of our Friends))

I am tackling each new day one second at a time, and often find that to be overwhelming. Everyone tells me I am being strong. They are wrong.

Right now, I can only describe myself as freefalling...untethered to anything.

I do thank you all for your thoughts here, your e-mails and your PM's..They mean so much to me.

This is a collage made by a dear friend of mine I wanted to share. When it arrived in the mail, it literally took me to my knees...where I stayed for quite some time savoring each picture..She caught his joy of life perfectly..

Earth, we've spoken and you know how your sweet gesture touches my heart. Nothing could have been more fitting..and I love it.

Kats, I have the picture you drew of Mykiedave and would love to talk with you..
I've framed the picture which is absolutely gorgeous and have it beside the family pictures of Dave...It is a treasure and I thank you..

I can not believe that it has been 2 years since we lost this wonderful man. He is still very much missed and will always be a part of GV.

Holly, my heart, thoughts and prayers are always with you at this time of the year.

Dave, you are still very much missed. How I wish you were here so that I could put you on the phone with the baby and you could tell him a story. Instead he will get to listen to you on CD. You will be the first person to tell him a story when he gets here!

Rest in peace MykieDave!!

I was not around GV to have had the pleasure of getting to know MykieDave. However, it is very apparent by reading the posts here just how special a guy he was and how many lives he touched.

Holly - I will also be thinking of you today and will keep you in my prayers.

Blessings,
Amanda
