Spiritual Superhero Week Flashback

Wow! The blog has suddenly exploded with posts!

I am moving posts over from the old blog, and so far have over 100. I can’t help but share a trip down memory lane with you, though, for some that I consider special. So I’ll go back to 2012 and post the five special “Spiritual Superhero Week” entries from that year.

So here’s the first post from that series:

Day One: Spiritual Superhero Week
I have dispirit thoughts to share today. But stick with me for a minute, and you’ll see where I’m going with this.

I have been thinking of Martin Luther King throughout this day devoted to his memory and works. At the same time, I was working on a series of ideas that I would like to present, one for each of the days of this week. So it’s only fitting that the first should be presented on ML King Day.

My next line of thinking involved what it is that I do as a shamanic practitioner and drum maker, and other things I love. For example, comic books. That’s why I produced and posted the Malinda Maeko comic some time back over on the Thunder Valley Drums Website. (The link will open in a new window and may take some time to load, as it is graphics heavy.) People seemed to appreciate it (particularly the way shamanic drumming was presented), and many commented that they would like to see more such spiritual comic books and comic strips in general. Well, I’m no artist, so I’ll leave that up to those with such talents and spiritual orientations.

But I do tinker with digital clippings from old comic book illustrations from time to time, and over the weekend decided to do a series of one-panel takes on a theme of what it would be like if Thunder Valley Drums sponsored a series of superhero ads about spirituality and social consciousness, from my point of view of course. Just having fun, but with an underlying hope of contributing some thoughts to possible ways of helping bring our world back into balance with itself.

This first one attempts to do both. And to honor Rev. King, too, with a phrase from his time.
