moonphase anger

Save the wolves!

I just took action to end the brutal slaughter of Alaska's wolves
through aerial gunning at http://www.SaveWolves.org, and I hope you'll
join me.

More than 150 wolves have already been shot dead under the state's
brutal aerial gunning program so far this year. The Alaska Board of
Game allows marksmen shoot wolves from aircraft, or use low-flying
airplanes to chase the wolves, run the helpless creatures to
exhaustion, then gun them down at point-blank range once they're too tired
to run any further.

So far, the Bush administration has refused to use its power to stop
the slaughter of these magnificent animals.

We must stop the slaughter of Alaska's wolves. Help me protect these
magnificent creatures by clicking the link below to send a free
message to President Bush and Interior Secretary Kempthorne urging them
to enforce the Federal Airborne Hunting Act before it's too late
for Alaska's wolves.

Please go to http://www.SaveWolves.org to take action now.

Then forward this message to your friends and family and ask them to
join you.

Thanks for helping to protect our precious wolves.

I've given up on the Festival, but...

(Link goes to my web site, to the page called "Shrine To Nahtahdjaiz.")

Nahtahdjaiz! [naw-todd-jaze], the Child God/dess of Children!

(I use God/dess and Zie because my Deities are hermaphrodites, though they all look female. 'Zie' and 'Zir' are my favorite 'English' genderless pronouns, zie being like 'she' and zir being like 'her.' I use them here instead of the Ah'Koi Bahnis words 'Djai' and 'Djair' because they should be easier to pronounce.)

Nahtahdjaiz, unlike the children and baby animals and baby plants Zie is God/dess of, was not born. Zie Arose. Zie simply found Zirself existing one day, and was very scared and lonely. Shao'Kehn - God/dess of Chaos - and Ahndahn - God/dess of Order - found Zir and comforted Zir. When They found out how Zie had come about - and that Zie was, thus, an orphan - They decided (since They were a couple anyway) to raise Zie as Their own. Thus began Their history of helping mortals by sending pieces of Their souls - full of Their wisdom - down to us. For raising Nahtahdjaiz into the happy Eternal Child that Zie is today gave them a fondness for helping out those in need, those who were lonely and scared.

Thus, we celebrate Nahtahdjaiz as our sibling. Mother Shao'Kehn, Father Ahndahn, Sibling Nahtahdjaiz. Sahn-Kia, Nahtahdjaiz, Koh Soh La Kohrain.

Read "The Epic Of Nahtahdjaiz"

In case you're wondering, that thing inside the circle in Zir symbol is Zir belly button. It's there because it is a symbol of being born, and though Nahtahdjaiz was never born, Zir spirit (not Zir soul, Zir spirit) lives in all of those who *are* born.
