Tis I...

I, Eye, Ay, yeye yey... Who is this, that sits before this keyboard, reluctantly ready to share the insides of my head and heart? Just another you, another me, another channel of the will of God...

The name Nancy has Hebrew roots, and means Grace, fortunately, as I received the cursed "clumsy gene of the Hall Girls". With out some extra grace, my life may be more of a bruising...

I identify as Nancy Hall the Third, having followed Nancy Hall the first, and Nancy Hall the second into being. Nancy one, although I never did know her, has been an inspiration to my rebel spirit. She grew up in Winnipeg, nursed in Europe during the second world war, and settled in San Francisco, where she became a doctor of biology at Berkeley and lived in an openly gay community of women. All before the sixties! Nancy two has been an inspiration to my spirit of art and expression. She lives her dreams and guides me to be myself, no holds barred. I took the title of Nancy Hall the Third while living on her farm in Sandy Hook. In those days, I would often write letters to the editor, as would Nancy two, and so I made the distinction as the third to avoid confusion about which Nancy was being the activist of the hour. Worked for me! Plus, the number three is lucky, everyone knows that, right?

I identify as Nancy In The Wind. This name was given to me by Stuart Cornell, one of many generosities he has shared with me and my family. On the shores of War Eagle Lake, our canoe bumped hard against the dock. The wind was coming so hard from the west that we could not leave for two days. During that storm I had an unexpected asthma attack. I stayed up all night and day by the fire, practicing yoga to keep every breath from taking my spirit from body. I didn't have the disease known as asthma, and was not going to! For the weeks that followed I fasted and prayed to understand the messages of that trip to the woods, and the lessons were clear. Channeling the ancient teachings of Ayurveda, my body healed and today I stand in the name that come to me then, stronger than ever, with a deeper understanding of the elements and nature.

I identify as Shining Blue Flower, as the ancestors know me. I am adopted into the clan of standing people, I speak for the plants.

I identify as Hole In The Ground. Channeled by the spirit of the Eagle and the Earth herself, I am growing to understand this name slowly and carefully. More will be revealed...
