miz molly 1,800 Posted April 8, 2020 Report Share Posted April 8, 2020 .............A dear friend of mine in Mt. Shasta told me about this. Her son in Marin told her.......(separation theory) Every night neighborhoods from Mt Shasta to Santa Cruz go outside at precisely 8:00P.M. and howl until precisely 8:05 to give thanks to our first responders during this pandemic. It is really awesome, and the process of howling releases that pent up frustration. Very healing. I thought this was such a great idea I texted all of my friends here in the Valley and told them about it. I mentioned that if they felt self conscious, just go out and listen. If you hear anything, respond if you feel like it. It's really hard to resist. When I first started howling in Ben Lomond, I was, as far as I could hear, the "lone wolf".....well my 3 pups were with me and they couldn't resist in joining me with a good howl. The four of us howled and I could hear no response. The second night I took my Buffalo Drum, & 3 pups, and we danced and howled together precisely at 8:00 P.M......... In the far distance, across the river and waaaaaaay up stream, I heard distant howling...We couldn't resist. so of course we responded, and they back to us. The third night we repeated the journey and heard a few closer people howlng......and way far away there was another drummer...we responded to each other. (so fun) By the fifth night, )it takes a bit of time) I could hear about 6 different neighborhoods join the chorus. Not are only giving thanks to our first responders, but saying "hi" to your neighbors......another time to realize that we're in this together.....PLUS we get a "sing along" with our pups. Do this enough times and don't be surprised if they eventually tell you its time to get ready to go out and sing thanks. Enjoy your howl. 5 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
