Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Out On A Leash

Friends,

I know I am new to the party here with all of these books and am having to play catch-up, but what a joy it has been so far, and I truly appreciate talking to each and every one of you about these discoveries.

After listening to an interview between Brit and SM when Out On A Leash was first released, I thought, well . . . I should read this book as it is right in line with the spirituality themes of Out On A Limb, The Camino, Saging While Aging. But then I thought, perhaps I should listen to this one as an audiobook as I drive to/from work to get the full effect of the conversations between SM/Terry. So, downloaded the audiobook onto the ol' iPhone today and started listening on the way home this evening.

Friends . . . I kid you not . . . as I was pulling into my home driveway, SM read the part about Terry being on the movie set and being big pals with the Teamsters who work on the movies and how "Terry is a Teamster dog."

Whoa. *cut to: me almost driving my car through the garage door*

As some of you may know by now, I am a union-side labor attorney. Okay--revealing a bit about myself/identity (with a small "i"), but I trust this group--I exclusively represent the Teamsters. Not only the Teamsters, but the Teamster Local (in a certain large midwestern city) that has as one of its bargaining units the guys who work on movies here. (We represent a very wide variety of industries, but the movies here in this city have our guys working 'em).

And the words "Terry is a Teamster dog" were uttered as I pulled into my driveway. Coincidence? Probably not. Probably just the universe smiling on me and continuing to approve of me following my bliss into this marvelous world of the heart and spirit.

So . . . SM . . . if you are ever filming in Chicago, which I doubt because all we seem to film here are large-action-big-explosion-summer-blockbuster type movies (think Transformers, Superman, and Batman), we will make Terry (and you?) an honorary Teamster! Hey, it ain't the Kennedy Center Honors, but it's from the heart.

Solidarity and love from the Midwest,
stephanie
