"Get your motor runnin',
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way..."
Born to Be Wild" is a rock song written by Mars Bonfire and made famous by the Canadian-American rock
band Steppenwolf. It is often used in popular culture to denote a biker appearance or attitude. However,
`Born to Be Wild' was written by Mars Bonfire as a slow ballad. Imagine that. Either way you play it, it is a
song that immediately takes hold of your spirit and seems to give it energy. It gets the adrenaline pump-
ing and fires up visions of roaring down the open road, alive and wild and free. It is the epitome of the
human spirit, wanting, needing to be free, to be outdoors, on the highway of life, running wild. We often
hear the term `wild' in a negative light. Too bad, because we all were `born to be wild'. Without the wild
ideas and experiments that emerge from wild minds not burdened with restriction, there would have been
absolutely zero progress. Every effort in history to `civilize' the `wild'(usually meaning creative) humans,
has backfired into `un-civil' unrest and tyranny. Force humans out of the wild and we spend billions to

get back to it. We are an essential part of the wild, it feeds us and clothes us and nurtures our souls. And
despite what's been taught to us for the last 100+ years, the wilderness needs us too. We give it our admira-
tions and love energy as well as it's very breath(Co2). Humans do not thrive unless they are wild, and free.

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it's significant spiritual sym-
bolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger. It is also
about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young in its nest.
It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be observant and to pay
attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don't use, a blessing for which
we haven't expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk has keen eyesight, it is about
Calling All Angels! Help us in `bringing
opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk is also about new beginnings
