The Rich Man and the Shoemaker
The Rich Man and the Shoemaker is a fable first penned by LaFontaine and rearranged and recorded here by Marlene Wurfel. This episode features a very special performance by Captain Thunderpants, the Vancouver Island Comox Valley's Performer of the Year in 2020.
This story is hundreds of years old. Is it still relevant today? Should the Shoemaker have done something differently? Would you have?
Stella and Neon
This is 15 minutes of relaxed visualization.
Stella Starwalker and her wolf, Neon, journey through the star scape. They drink from the Milky Way, see Pleiades and other storied constellations, and rest by The Tree of Life. What does a star wolf dream of when he finally sleeps? Star bunnies, of course.
Be well, Darlings.
