Wheel of Wonder April 22, 2012

We have forgotten who we are
we have alienated ourselves from the unfolding of the cosmos
we have become estranged from the movements of the earth
We have turned our backs on the cycles of life
We have forgotten who we are
We have sought only our own security
we have exploited simply for our own ends
we have distorted our knowledge
we have abused our power
we have forgotten who we are
now the forests are dying
and the creatures are disappearing
and humans are despairing
we have forgotten who we are
we ask forgiveness
we ask for the gift of remembering
we ask for the strength to change
we have forgotten who we are

Though this message is intense its food for thought, information I love to share with you through Wheel of Wonder.  This Sunday is an exciting one.
What a great Sunday!  Happy Earth Day!  This week on Wheel of Wonder we'll explore the origins of the Earth Day Holiday.  Where'd that come from?  When did it begin, and very importantly, what has its impact been on our modern, global earth culture?  This week is also the week of the KAOS membership drive, you can call right in, support independent, non-profit radio, and even here a live interview with Celia Farran!  She'll be talking and playing music, live in studio!
The music won't be limited to just Celia though, the information won't be limited to Earth Day, its an opportunity to learn more about community radio, and of course, to hear new voices, and lots of the great music you like on Wheel of Wonder.  Please tune in, and help keep independent voices, music and live pagan/spiritualist content on the Airwaves.  This week on Wheel of Wonder.

Celia Farran! Three concerts in the area.

Hello friends, Pagans, and Listeners of the show! Its been such a pleasure to bring you Wheel of Wonder for the past three years, through the seasons, through the awards, and just recently, on the radio station voted best radio station in Olympia, WA. (nice, cause there are about four or five stations in the town). Its also been a great pleasure to meet so many great Pagan Musicians, New Age Thinkers, and independent artists!

One of those artists I've met is then warm and wonderful Celia; A musician, activist for equality, songwriter, comedienne and (going out on a limb here) earth spiritualist. This very talented musician is coming into the area next weekend to do three concerts (and I believe, a house concert too).

Don't miss her if you can possibly make it to one of these shows:

Also worthy of mentioning; the KAOS spring membership drive runs from this Monday, April 15 to Sunday April 22. The not-fo-profit public radio station that brings you Wheel of Wonder each week has lost a lot of their funding in the past year or two, so please Pagans, Spiritualists and any independent Musicians that have found their way to Wheel of Wonder, consider seriously starting or renewing your memberships on this fund drive week! Wheel of Wonder, the only Pagan focused Radio Show broadcasting live in the USA is only on the air because KAOS memberships make it happen. To support independent, local radio and shows like KAOS supports please call 360 867 5267 during the drive with your pledge, or if your living in a different part of the world , or a less convenient timezone, start, or renew a membership at

I know this entry sounds a bit commercial. Fear not, I'm as independent as you are individuals. I don't work for corporate America, and Wheel of Wonder has always been intended as a Spiritual, educational Journey! Thanks for listening and following the blog!
