04/04/13 - NNHS Newsletter - April Come She Will

“Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
The droghte of March hath perced to the roote
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour;”

-
Geoffrey Chaucer

(c. 1343 – 25 Oct 1400?)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

    April, I suppose, is like everything else - it just does what it will when it will.....

REMINDER:

        From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/20/13, 4:46 PM - "     Dave Arnold's ('65) (12 Aug 1947 - 21 July 2012) Final Resting Place":

Carol,

Please post this in an upcoming newsletter.

Dave Arnold’s Ashes to be Distributed by Civil War Cannon at Fort Shenandoah on April 13th

My good friend, Dave Arnold (NNHS ’65), died tragically on 21 July 2012, as a result of an automobile accident. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated.

It was also his wish that his ashes be distributed in the Shenandoah Valley. Dave loved "the Valley" (as he called it) of Virginia. He grew up in the Tidewater area, but his heart remained in the Valley area of Virginia. It is only fitting that his ashes should find their final home there.

It is also only fitting that his ashes should be distributed by being fired from his very own cannon, which he was having fabricated, so that he could more fully participate with the 1st Virginia, his skirmish group, which is a part of the North-South Skirmish Association.

His final wish will now be fulfilled, thanks to the efforts of his fellow Civil War skirmishers.

On April 13 at 12:00 noon, this ceremony will take place at Ft. Shenandoah at the primary range where the skirmish events are held. Attendees will enter and pass the range keeper's house, and there are signs to the main range.

All are welcome to attend. Dave would have been thrilled to have you watch his cannon being fired on the skirmish field. I can think of no greater way in which to honor his memory.

Fort Shenandoah is owned and operated by the North-South Skirmish Association and is located near Winchester VA.

You can learn more at their web site: http://www.n-ssa.org/

Directions are here: http://www.n-ssa.org/NATIONAL/maps.html

For GPS users, the street address is “480 Chalybeate Spring Road, Winchester VA, 22603”.

   Oh, WOW! I had no idea! We wish we could make it ourselves, but I think the chances of that are infinitesimally small.....

  Thank you so much for letting me know, David!

April 13, 1861 American Civil War: Fort Sumter surrendered to Southern forces.

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 03/25/13 - "How to Create 'Quiet Time' ":

Quiet, Please...

By Carol Look

When was the last time you were quiet enough to really feel your pulse, to notice the rhythm of your body, and hear your heart's messages?
For most of us, it's been a long time, much longer in fact than is good for us. And as a result of not being quiet enough to pay attention to our inner world, we lose touch with the inner messages, both simple and profound, about what decisions are really good for our lives.
Unfortunately, the excuses for not taking the time to be quiet are many. Personally, my primary excuse is that I have too much to do... I'm too busy, there's too much on my plate. But I have recently made a new commitment (I had to re-commit to this one!) to take the time every day to stop, be quiet, and listen to my inner voice.
Which excuses do you use? Below are some typical "yes, buts that I and my workshop participants use to avoid or "forget" to be quiet during the day:

(1) I'm too busy to take time to be quiet, I can't afford the extra time.
Actually, you can't afford *not* to take the extra time. It will save you so much time later if you are still and quiet for a few minutes a day and if you listen to what is right for you.

(2) I don't know how to really be quiet and make it useful.
This is a common complaint - we weren't taught how to make "being quiet" useful for us, so we don't know "how" to be quiet and improve our lives. Sometimes we just need to practice being quiet, and notice the benefits later. In other words, be quiet every day, and don't focus on "usefulness" yet.

(3) It doesn't feel safe to be quiet, I don't like what I hear.
This is a wonderful "tappable" issue of course with EFT, because it means that at least one time in your life, when you were quiet, you were very uncomfortable with the "messages" you received. Tapping on this fear of not being safe will move you forward dramatically.

(4) I get bored being quiet. I need to be doing something more "productive."

Yes, this represents our societal value system to be "productive." If we could only realize how "productive" we could be by being quiet and still in our lives. Getting bored? No worries, that's a "tappable" issue as well.

(5) What's the point of being quiet -- I don't see the value.

There are so many "points" of being quiet, the main one being that it's good for your body and soul. Isn't that valuable enough?

(6) It seems like a waste of time, I don't expect it to help me be more successful in my business.

Again, this reflects the hurrying mode we are all in... so we feel compelled not to "waste" any time, and need every minute to be "productive" for our businesses. Nothing could be further from the truth - slowing down and being still and quiet couldn't be a better use of your time, regardless of the business you own.
What if we could actually feel inspired to take time to be quiet and listen to our heart every day?
What if we could start to look forward to these "quiet times" in our day, to cherish and protect these times of stillness and self-reflection.
What if we committed to ourselves that we would take a few minutes every day to listen to our heart... I wonder how much would improve in our lives...
Why aren't you already taking time to be still and quiet every day to listen and respect what your heart is telling you?
In spite of my sporadic commitment to "being quiet" -- I really have found so many benefits of being quiet and listening to my heart's wisdom. Here is my "top ten" list of benefits of being quiet and listening to what's going on inside...

(1) Being quiet allows you to access your heart's wisdom.
We all have incredible wisdom available to us, but we can't access what we don't take time to hear.

(2) Being quiet slows down your racing energy from the tasks of the day.
We all need a rest, a break from the high intensity pace we move at during the day.

(3) Being quiet actually helps you solve the problems that are taking up so much of your energy.
If we don't listen to our inner wisdom, we can't solve the problems of our lives.

(4) Allowing yourself time to be quiet slows down your reactivity... helps you be more measured when there are crisis situations.

Wouldn't it be nice to be less reactive in your life? Wouldn't it be a relief to be more useful in a crisis situation?

(5) Taking time to be still and quiet gets your body's rhythms back in sync... you'll feel more calm, centered and strong.

Stress from all parts of our lives creates tension and we tend to override the messages we should be paying attention to. Taking the time to be still and quiet slows this process down so you can feel more centered physically and emotionally.

(6) Taking time to be quiet and listen to your internal wisdom raises your vibration immediately.

Remember, that's the name of the game -- we want to find new ways to raise our vibration so the Universe "notices" that we are joyful and can interpret what we want.

(7) Being quiet allows you to be able to access your creative voice which is good for your business and personal life.

I love being creative because it helps me personally and professionally. When I take the time to be quiet, I seem to "hear" better ideas, execute them more elegantly, and overall, feel more peaceful about my life.

(8) Being quiet helps you focus on what you do want, not what you don't want.

Sometimes in the busy day, we are more focused on what we are trying to fix rather than on what we want to manifest. Being quiet helps us remember what we do want.

(9) Allowing yourself time to be quiet gives you emotional relief from the daily static and stress of your life.

Any time we are adding "relief" to our day, we are raising our vibration and allowing ourselves to manifest more abundance.

(10) Being quiet... is, well, quiet and restful, and being quiet and restful is good for all the systems in your body and your mind.

When you take care of your immune system, your body/mind connection and the balance in your life, you will be more successful in every part of your life.
The important question is: Are you worth it?

This "habit" of taking time to be quiet should be right up there with sleeping and brushing your teeth... so why isn't it on your daily schedule?

April Come She Will

Words and Music by
Paul Simon (b. 13 Oct 1941) and Art Garfunkel (b. 05 Nov 1941)

Recorded by Simon and Garfunkel, 1965


April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September I'll remember.
A love once new has now grown old.
