"There was a time when it wasn’t uncommon to use a piece of string to guide words that otherwise might falter on the way to their destinations. Shy people carried a little bundle of string in their pockets, but people considered loudmouths had no less need for it, since those used to being overheard by everyone were often at a loss for how to make themselves heard by someone. The physical distance between two people using a string was often small; sometimes the smaller the distance, the greater the need for the string.
The practice of attaching cups to the ends of the string came much later. Some say it is related to the irrepressible urge to press shells to our ears, to hear the still-surviving echo of the world’s first expression. Others say it was started by a man who held the end of a string that was unraveled across the ocean by a girl who left for America.
When the world grew bigger, and there wasn’t enough string to keep the things people wanted to say from disappearing into the vastness, the telephone was invented.
Sometimes no length of string is long enough to say the thing that needs to be said. In such cases all the string can do, in whatever its form, is conduct a person’s silence.”
This book is perfect. Perfect poetic magic. Every time I read it, I find I want to never take a break from its pages, while simultaneously wanting to savor each and every beautiful line.

The chemtrails are still an unfortunate collective projected echo in our reality (hopefully not for much longer though) - and therefore, so is the battle between chemtrails and sylphs. To those who watch for chemtrails, talk about chemtrails, and point, photograph, share (etc.) the trails, instead try putting your focus on the elementals. They are here to help us, and clearing and purifying the air is their duty to Earth and its atmosphere - they are “air elementals,” after all. When you witness spraying, a hazy day, or in general, a day where the air seems thick and unhealthy to breathe, call on the sylphs, set your intention to connect with them, and send them love and appreciation. Most of all, let them know you *see them* and *acknowledge them*. They are extremely responsive to this rekindled connection between the elemental kingdom and humanity; they are seeming to rejoice in the heightened awareness many are stepping into that includes the elementals inside their vision and “real” reality. Not only this, but by focusing on the reality we want (ie. clear skies, in this case), rather than focusing on that which we don’t - the chemtrail spraying, the us vs. them mentality, victim consciousness, etc. - we distill our energy into assisting the creation of that wanted reality: energy flows where attention goes. We must BE the new world that we want so badly; we must create it with our choices of every moment, and that includes what we choose to focus on moment by moment. Just try it out, work on rebuilding that trust and connection with them, have faith in the elementals’ support, and welcome them in beginning to inhabit the world again in a more pronounced way. There is really never a day here where I live that they do not come out when trails are sprayed or chemmuck blows through. They’re waiting for us to look up and rise up - quite literally. And they’ll meet us when we do.👼🙏
