THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR MEETING WITH THE GREAT WHITE DEER...PROFOUND. I ALWAYS BELIEVE GOD ALLOWS ALL OUR EXPERIENCES FOR A GOOD REASON...ESPECIALLY THE GOOD ONES. YOUR SHARING IS INFORMATIVE AND BRINGS GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF THE LENAPE PEOPLE AND THEIR CULTURE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS.

Legend" of The White Deer (Short Story) - 1/11/2009 5:27:07 PM
Thank You Deborah for your telling of the white deer encounter you and your husband had. I was looking for this information because I have seen an animal such as this.
It was on the edge of a pine forest and was very large, with two dag-like horns standing about a foot to 16 inches high. And it looked at me directly, seemingly unafraid. As I looked at it, amazed the whole time, it gradually turned and went into the pines. I have never seen anything like it and wondered about it. I often see more than most people because I am more receptive and observant when out in the woods. But this was special, and I knew it. And I have been wondering at the significance of this event. Some of which I understand, but am as yet still curious. It was a little over two years ago.
While this could have been an albino deer, it doesn't really matter. It was so large as to be unusual, as was it's presence. It was grand, mythical. These are two words I would use to describe it. And yet when I read your acount, I could see similarities.
I have always loved and valued animals, but it is almost so difficult to do in our culture nowadays. And yet, I gained from reading your message based on your intuition of what the experience was saying to you.

Thank you for this piece, Deborah. Your clean writing style intensifies the illuminating qualities of this story. You've imparted spiritual, sociological, and historical knowledge. And as always, I enjoy seeing your artwork. :-)

They Call Us Many Things... (Short Story) - 3/13/2005 3:38:30 PM
This is a great article... I really enjoyed the name "First Nation." That says it all right there... I believe the government tries more and more to make the American Indian disappear... The name "Native Americans" to me, doesn't just pay homage to the Indian, but all people who were born here... From now on, I will say "First Nation." And what a proud history with the Iroquois. It was their nation, which the present day government copied...I really enjoyed this... thank you
A Letter from Lavender Aurora (Article) - 10/14/2010 4:10:54 PM
I can't believe that I was scammed as well! last year, I sent money to purchse the latest anthology with my new poem, and almost a year later, i haven't heard a thing. I guess i got what i deserved. Thank God for Deborah Russell- I never would have known for certain what i know now- that LAVENDER AURORA is a phony!
Have You Thought About Leonard Peltier Lately? (Article) - 12/5/2006 1:30:05 PM
Not only of Leonard have my thoughts been taken too...but to the many injustices suffered such a spiritual group of humans that ever walked this land. This article is worthy of inter-national attention and some serious soul searching by all of us. We must also remember that the idea of such an in-humane system (prison itself) was instituted by the white race because of the lack of true spirituality and what justice really should be and means. The prison system is in itself a dark blemish on society.
Yet at this time the opportunity exists for the Native Americans to reach out across the world and build a new nation just as Black Elk had seen in his vision and once again restore the flowering tree.
The Hopi indians have always known that many indian spirits are now in bodies of different races and in many different locations in the world ( Hopi's pahana as a direct reference--and yes pahana has visited the Hopi not but several years back-believe it or not). All that needs to be done now is to reach out with a calling which can be easily developed and unite to build this great nation once again. Nothing is impossible.
Enough said...to the author of this great article...my heartfelt thanks and to Leonard....I truly believe that the Great Spirit has called you to suffer this great injustice on behalf of all your people everywhere and that He will make you free and you will be glad of it. Peace Brother! So It Is. (Robert Taylor)

Thousand Dollar Poetry (Article) - 7/11/2006 8:01:22 AM
You are so right. And book contests are going the same way. I personally don't enter any unless there is a book deal included, and even then you have to watch your step. I read recently here about an AuthorHouse author bragging about placement.
AuthorHouse (formerly 1st Books)is one of the worst of vanity publishers. AuthorHouse lost a libel suit in court. It seems that the courts and jury decided that a publisher couldn't disavow itself of what it published. In other words, AuthorHouse should have vetted what it accepted before publishing. Now they owe several hundred thousand dollars and may have to pay even more in punitive damages.
Have You Thought About Leonard Peltier Lately? (Article) - 12/5/2005 2:17:51 PM
I have thought about Leonard Peltier lately. Two of my friends remind me each day in their email signature lines. I sign petitions, do what's asked, but admit I haven't done a lot on my own, although my heart is with him. Thanks for the reminder.
A Letter from Lavender Aurora (Article) - 11/30/2005 5:28:31 AM
Rhyming words a poem does not make. Feelings, thoughts, expression and enlightenment all work really well in poetry. None of which I'm sure Lavender Aurora knows much about. Thanks for the heads up!

A Nation Lost (Article) - 12/20/2004 12:31:50 PM
All nations are ignorant as are all men, Education is the proccess in which we teach men and women that they know very little. Revolution is the only process to educate a nation that they know very little.
I think that revolution is not necessary nor is fear unhealthy.
The largest problem with primary education is the concept that there is only one way, one plan, one method to teach. That is truly ignorant.
Balancing respect for authority with respect for individuality is a lesson we as a nation must learn before we can expect to teach it to our kids.
If drugs are truly aid in learning, why aren't we all taking them?
I enjoyed reading this, I hope you have a very happy holiday season.

The Moon Is a Jade (Poetry) - 10/10/2007 11:40:38 AM
I was rambling about a bit today and ran across this piece. It is outstanding. The entire feel of this work is soft, both in its composition and imagery. Yet for all that softness, there is an edginess, a sharpness rather like walking through soft grass barefooted and suddenly stepping on a stone. It's that small point of sadness that adds a depth to this fine work.

Marginal Notes (Poetry) - 12/31/2006 1:51:52 PM
What a beautiful tribute...I too find myself often asking what would mom do. I am from the south where most call mom...mommy. So let me rephrase that...I find myself asking what would mommy do? Many pieces of advice she has given that I have found to be useful again and again. Maybe as a teens we do not want to hear what our parents have to say, but as we grow older we become more mellow and less stubborn, and realize that for the most part mothers do know best. Great write, enjoyed...I'll share a piece of advice my mom has always told me and I use often..."Go with what your gut is telling you, and you wont go wrong, don't overide this feeling." I have found this so true so many times. Enjoyed this so much, blessings for the new year and many years to come my friend.

Now that's what I call a desk that needs serious transition.

Atmosphere (Poetry) - 11/2/2006 3:28:54 PM
Beautiful write...and a very elegant write I must add. The imagery is outstanding. I loved the line, for what is a tiny moment in a lover's heart. Those special and treasured moments that we capture in our life time are wonderful and after all a tiny moment of pleasure and satisfaction is better than emptiness and never knowing love. Stunning write!

Sublime, Deborah. Beautifully scripted.
Destitute (Poetry) - 10/29/2006 10:49:46 AM
Poetry rising from the ashes of destitution, giving colour in a black and white world. When sunlight sends shadows into my art studio that is when I stop lifting brushes. Scottish Parliament is obssessed with cigarette ash while all around social decay abounds. I don't know if my reading of your poem was your intention, but it is written in a style that is accessible to any number of interpretations.
I am thankful to the one who recommended your work.
Destitute (Poetry) - 10/29/2006 9:08:41 AM
This would be a great performance piece Deborah.
Destitute (Poetry) - 10/28/2006 1:41:26 PM
This write is rich.
And I like the analogy of "two cups on the edge of a table."
I have to agree with Dr. Lilly, the last two lines place a unique perspective on this - like searching through wilderness to find the water that causes artistic growth.

"Quinta Poema, Caravanas Roja"
A brilliant summation of nature through the eyes of an astonishing poet!
Very seldomly do individuals take time out to notice the smallest creatures that inhabit our earth and do so is a rarity.
Wish all could be in unison as some of the smallest creatures, we would all be right on.
To appreciate is a must!
Deborah thank you for your insightfulness and for your wonderful works, you are such a contribution to society!
Hope you know I for one will always be on the look out for such greatness from you. You my Dear are quite an asset to our world as an Artist, Writer, and Poet. Keeping my eyes on ya', in my world I respect you, and look up to you! Not to mention count on you for such greatness!
Take the best of care,

Quinta Poema, Caravanas Roja (Poetry) - 10/22/2006 3:36:58 PM
As you surmise, quite a lot can be learned from the colonies, of course mindless repetition can be said to be bad for you also. To work as one body for the common good is a much sought-out theory and one that usually does not work with we superior sorts. I use the superior word tongue-in-cheek, allthough of course we are, but sometimes I . . .

Brilliantly conceived and finely executed work.
Quinta Poema, Caravanas Roja (Poetry) - 10/22/2006 12:34:04 PM
Beautiful write...I have often thought about just how wonderful that God made our great earth and all that inhabit it. Ants are miraculous little creatures, they will labor and work at a slice of bread until all is gone, no matter the time it consumes to please the queen ant of the colony, much like Native Americans also worked no matter the time to please the great mother earth. Wonderful write.

Sacrifices (Poetry) - 10/8/2006 9:24:09 AM
A sense of longing for opportunities missed, time lost, and heritage faded. Emotional.
Sacrifices (Poetry) - 10/7/2006 3:30:18 PM
Days do sometimes drift by in ephemeral images, appearing, disappearing, and often feelings, like the sound of water over rocks, rush around us like the eddies of currents.
We look around at our surroundings sometimes and see so much that defines us, and much that we wish did. Photography is good - it captures the soul of those moments that often slip right by us, never to be seen again.
The necessities of life seem simple, but expressing those things that appear simple can be, at times, a monumental task.
Long may your eyes and heart see and feel those things beyond the mundane, those things that give life and hope.
A brilliant write Deborah ...
I salute you!

Zero Place (Poetry) - 10/4/2006 12:05:46 AM
i routinely hike a steep mountain trail here in california's coast ranges. along the way i often pause to build rock sculptures. it is in these moments i am at peace with the nothingness of my zero place.
a profoundly engaging write, deborah. simply exquisite.
wish i had more time to visit!
Zero Place (Poetry) - 10/3/2006 4:05:34 PM
Deborah, this is a stunning write.
Exquisitely written indeed!
I am there in every line of this.
I believe in all that you wrote,
this is one of my favorite parts,
"not asking you to be but you"
Henceforth, that is a great way to be, too!
One of my sentiments exactly. I think individuals
fair far better to just let one be themselves.

Beautiful poem...very inspiring and such a true sentiment...touched me deeply. My heritage is Native American...even though they were my ancestors of years gone by, I still feel a close connection, it stirs within me when I read stories, poems, and watch movies about them. My great, great grandmother was full Cherokee, and a wonderful person I was told by my grandfather before he passed. Again, wonderful write...keep on writing my friend it's great.

What's in a face? Only the essence of what time has wraught in every curve and line, the soul of laughter, the heart in the eyes. Beautiful poem that opens the senses, Deborah...
