Please Reach Out

Hi Again,

I know that I don’t really have to post this but I felt strongly that I should do it anyway.  Many of you are aware of the catastrophic flooding that has hit the Colorado area leaving many folks in horrific shape.  Many, and I mean many of the Tracker Family of students live in the Colorado area and I’ve been getting calls for help from some of them.  It makes no difference whether it is the Tracker Family or not, please reach out to them and see if you can help them in any way.  Check your mailing lists for names associated with the Colorado area and give them a call, an email, or a text, just to check on them and show them that you sincerely care.  Many in the Tracker Family are often out assisting others, even though their own homes are being battered and threatened but that is the way of Grandfathers’ Vision and the Vision of the Tracker Family and School.  Others first.  

So too are many proud, rather taking the route of doing things on their own, rather than asking for help, for after all they are all basically masters of survival.  Please, but please, ask for help.  That is what makes us all tick.  Helping others.  We come from such an isolated world, cut off from everyone and everything else, fearful to do something for one another as we wallow in suspicion and suspect shady motives.  Can those thoughts, just help one another, help strangers, even if only to offer a kind word of encouragement.  Send out that Concentric Ring of caring and compassion.  Please reach out far and wide.  No one is ever too busy to help another.  

And Thank You, for whatever you are able to do.

Prayer moves everything.

Walk Strong and in Silence,

Tom

Heading Home

Hi Folks,

I’m heading back home and to the Tracker Classes this weekend after a more than productive week of working vacation.  I’m more than overwhelmed with the video I was able to take of old friends from the Pine Barrens that had long ago moved into the North and South Carolina areas were they now call home.  It’s amazing how similar these areas are to where I grew up including the consciousness, edginess, and closeness to the Earth that the people live around here every day.  Most important I was able to capture their stories on video, stories of Grandfather and them coming together in times of need to be treated with his ancient medicinal herbs or just his kind words and understand fully though their observation how he changed lives.  

Equally as important as the video interviews are the grand array of “B” Video I was able to get for both my live on line and physical classes.  I was able to not only collect wild edible/medicinal plants but also capture many of them in the video format so that i can easily use them in the upcoming classes no matter on line or the physical class.  As I’ve said, this series of upcoming classes are probably going to be some of the most important of my life and I wanted to make sure I had all things I need and in place long before the classes begins.  In that same line of thought I’m going to fully settle in this weekend and then make the general announcement for these two very special classes probably monday.  I want to make sure I have everything set and in order beforehand.  

Anyway, I’m on my way home and have some very important teaching I would like to convey to all of you next post.  I also have a very important and key warning.  

In Medicine, Walk Strong,

Tom
