Welcome!

Hi Kelsang,

Welcome to the PulseWire community! I think you will find this to be a really rewarding experience and I encourage you to interact in the community through writing in your journal, reading fellow members' journals and offering comments and perhaps joining a group that interests you.

We have some Nepalese and Tibetan women on PulseWire who are young leaders and very vocal about women's rights in their communities . Check them out and introduce yourself!

My Story

Hi Kelsang,

How are you? We haven't heard from you in awhile so I hope that you are well. I would like to invite you to participate in a new writing opportunity to be published in World Pulse Magazine. We are asking women around the world to tell us what Land means to them.

Check it out! http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/programs/mystory

Cheers,
Jade

What Land means to me, etc..

Hi Jade:
I have been rather busy, even with my volunteer jobs, and haven't made the time to write any journal entries. i am much better at telling stories, and when i meet someone in person, i am always full of stories about everything under the sky. this topic is interesting, and if i can make the nov 15 deadline i will do my best to submit an entry. obviously land means many different things to many people. in my mind, since i have travelled so much and lived on different continents, physical land, though having very deep roots and meaning to groups of people or cultures, tribes, states, and countries, is not that important to me personally. i am home wherever i am and usually it is on land, and everything i experience is transitory, and impermanent, meeting people here and there. but land still plays an important role in my story-telling, since i identify names, faces, people, and places, along with events and experiences, and my memory begins with a place and time, therefore location is important and every little detail of the physical surrounding is remembered and brought back to the present time when one can sense the exact moment of the time of the original event,... well, something along those lines is what i would write about when i say something about what Land means to me. i know that may not have been the intent of the question, but that would be my response. in case i don't get time to compose my thoughts more succinctly then this will have to do for now... take care and hope you enjoyed the wonderful weather this weekend in Portland, Oregon as we near another beautiful full moon night, and a marvelous sunny day with blue skies earlier this Sunday afternoon!
Regards, Kelsang

Land

Hi Kelsang,

I'm glad to hear that you are well and busy giving to the community. I hope that someday we can meet in person so that I can hear your many stories, but I also encourage you to share them here so we can learn from you and grow in our understanding of each other and as a community. I love your interpretation of Land. This is exactly what we are looking for - not just a physical location as Land, but in any sense that you interpret it. This is a perfect start for a submission. It only needs to be 250 words or less, so you are half way there!

Yes, it is a beautiful night in Portland. I spent the day wandering the refuge at Oaks Bottom in Sellwood, soaking in the fresh air and fall colors.

Take care!

Jade
