Letters From The Side Of a Sleeping Volcano

1-DSCF5781-001 would that the world looked this good through my keyhole

rəˈmis/
adjective
adjective: remiss
  1. lacking care or attention to duty; negligent.
    “it would be very remiss of me not to pass on that information”
    antonyms: careful
Origin
late Middle English: from Latin remissus ‘slackened,’ past participle of remittere . The early senses were ‘weakened in color or consistency’ and (in describing sound) ‘faint, soft.’
Remiss is such a marvellous word. And yet as can be seen in this graph it is almost unknown and unused now.
remiss
Unknown and unused, sadly the same can be said for much of what I hold dear. Perhaps I merely look back through the filter of Golden Age Mythology? Perhaps the World is not going to Hell in a handcart?…

He was right. Once again I have let my past dictate my present. Like I said, a slow learner that forgets quickly!

There was a time when I lived in a small Indian village on the north coast of British Columbia Canada. For almost five years I had the privilege to be trained in the Old Ways and beliefs by those who still knew them. I still carry their gifts in my heart. I hopefully always will.

One day as I sat drinking coffee with an Old One I asked him what the greatest change was in his long life. Here I should mention that his grandparents lived in a time when the Indian was still the dominant human on the north coast. The Old Ways (both the…
