The first people to settle in North America were the Solutreans, a shamanic tribal people who crossed the Atlantic from what is now France, on ice shelves during the Ice Age 17,000 years ago. A lot of people don’t know that. It’s all relatively new information…flint clovis points found in Virginia, DNA evidence, etc… not what we were taught in school. It wasn’t until 6000 years later people began to arrive from Asia. Over time, the two peoples mixed, which is why a quarter of the DNA of the Ojibway is European.
A friend who is 100% Chippewa had some blood work done a while back and it was determined through genetic markers that he was part French. He was baffled by this. Mystery solved. He’s part Solutrean! I’m half French.
In the meantime, we’re having record high temperatures here this week and the polar caps are melting at an alarming rate. There’s a strange irony to all of this, I’m sure, once you work out the logic and do the math.
The following is a Discovery Channel video: Ice Age Columbus. It’s cool!
Gold Finch is a totem of rejuvenation and new beginnings.

The Faerie Queen has unexpectedly returned to my dreaming, leaving me hopelessly love-lorn and interminably distracted. Spirit dictates that the third time she appears, a charm is called for..a binding through ritual magic…a spell that links us eternally.
Greater forces at play….blah, blah. “As I will, so mote it be”, and so on. Five candles, a knife, a ribbon, etc.
The prompting of our subconscious, the deep wanting of our soul, demands we make at least one heroic act to drag the dream kicking and screaming into the light of the day. Retrieving the Sword of Light from the Otherworld. Two acts are better. Seizing the Everlasting Pearl. The third one’s a charm or so I’ve been told. Her heart can not be won otherwise. It’s all just a crazy dream in the end anyway, isn’t it?
“Every step I thought of you…every footstep, only you.”
