I recently recorded the Audio in this piece (Mother Earth's Love for us) which is destine to be a track on my most current CD/DVD, this song was recorded in one take (no overdubs). All the images where taken in my traditional homeland of Saanich BC which is 23 Km. north of Victoria BC, several images I shot in Kyushu Japan.
This Video and the following message were presented at several concerts in Japan which I was unable to attend due to the tsunami & earthquake there.
My Dear beloved relations of Japan, you are blessed with the love of many people throughout the world, we send you goodness from our hearts, wellness from our souls to your souls, a sharing of our strength to mingle with your strength, Great Spirits light has no boundaries or limitations, the love that you have for eachother is the same love that all things are made of, we share this ever present love with all of you knowing that this will help all of us. Our dear late Aunt Vi Taqshablu Hilbert had said to me once "when we help one another in turn we help ourselves" so simple yet so profound. So during this time I feel it is important to remember that we are all brothers & sisters, that no one walks alone or is isolated, the physical and spiritual threads that tie us together are like the roots of a forest that have grown together which share the same nourishment and strength. I feel that one of the greatest things that we can all relearn is to give thanks everyday for all the gifts that our Mother Earth brings to us, acknowledge her love for us, to never feel that we are separate from her, remember to listen and learn from her, she is truly alive and loves us dearly for she did birth us all. Dear late Aunt Vi Taqshablu Hilbert always told us that "Mother Earth is our first teacher" My mom (Mary Sasayitha Wagner) always tells us to "always thank nature, thank the trees for the air that we breath, thank water for the cleansing of our body & spirit".
Always remember that we love you all, for you are our brothers & sisters, we walk with you hand in hand visualizing Spirits light & love surrounding us all.
