Staying Young: The Oquaga Spirit’s Advice

Lost code reference is in the Bible

Staying Young: The Oquaga Spirit’s Advice. This spirit dwells around Oquaga Lake. Over 15 years it has communicated its wisdom to me. Her knowledge of Neolithic culture with its  priestly use of number squares is in the process of being posted on a new website. It is called Revivingantiquity.com. Currently it is under construction.  I, David, and Sharon with our creation of musicals, chamber music, opera, and works for symphonic orchestras and concert bands will stay on DSOworks.com  It all takes time- so please be patient. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” applies in this case. It is an adage attesting to the need for time to create great things. It is the usual English translation of a medieval French phrase, «Rome ne fu[t] pas faite toute en un jour», from the collection Li Proverbe au Vilain (published around 1190; reprinted here). The modern French form is «Rome ne s’est pas faite en un jour.»

The Oquaga Spirit Speaks About Staying Young in Her Poem, Never, Never Sit Still

Staying Young on Oquaga Lake According to the Oquaga Spirit.
The Beauty of Oquaga Lake as Viewed  from Scott’s Oquaga Lake House.

Never, Never Sit Still

Be like the wind to renew
Circulate and blow through.
Keeping in motion is youth’s potion.
Never, never sit still.

Air that sits in mass
Stifles and doesn’t pass.
It grows stale and makes one pale.
Never, never sit still.

The swamp decays
On stillborn days.
The stagnant calls for storm.

Keep the heart pumping!
Keep the mind thinking!
Never, never sit still!

For me, the Oquaga Spirit is very real. Everyone who goes to the lake can feel a special spiritual presence. This spirit chooses different ways to communicate with everyone. To most, she “radiates reassuring peace and sensations most sublime.” A few have tried to cross her. An example was a certain night watchman. He made quite a pest of himself. One evening he tumbled down a flight of stairs in Green Gables. He left a heel make over the bannister all the way down. It is still visible. The watchman literally crashed a party that was being held by a dance troup. He quit his job shortly afterwards, never to come back to Oquaga Lake.  Keep checking DSOworks.com for more stories about the spirit. Also soon, start to check out Revivingantiquity.com. A few posts are up.
