"Being Indian is an attitude, a state of mind, a way of being in harmony with all things and all beings. It is allowing the heart to be the distributor of energy on this planet; to allow feelings and sensitivities to determine where energy goes; bringing aliveness up from the Earth and from the Sky, putting it in… Continue

A Smile costs nothing, but gives much
It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor, but that he can be made rich by it
A Smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good… Continue

ONCE I SAW A FLOWER
BEAUTIFUL BEYOND DESCRIPTION
A ROSE OF SUCH DEEP COLORS
IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY
SO CAREFULLY I CHOSE THIS FLOWER
AND PLACED IT IN A GLASS
SO THE MEMORY WOULD ALWAYS LAST
EACH DAY I WATCHED IT OPEN
UNFOLD EACH PETAL FOR ME
THERE ON THE SHELF
DISPLAYED FOR ALL TO SEE
ALL OTHERS SAW WAS A FLOWER
LIKE A THOUSAND OTHER FLOWERS
THEY DIDN'T SEE HER TAME ME
THEY DIDN'T KNOW WE'D FALLEN IN LOVE

There are many times in our lives that we consider life and death, and the mysteries they hold, but never more than when you know your losing a loved one. That is what I face now, as I prepare to take my mother, to see her mother, before she passes away. My… Continue

Here is a forwarded message regarding this year's West Coast Regional by Dwight "Whytefeather"
Well after just getting back from a whirlwind "Circle Tour" from Arcata to SF up thru Shasta, on to Ashland, and back down to Brookings and Arcata, it's still late Winter as Phyl the Groundhog predicted. The Shasta-Weed area still looked more like the Tibetan Region at this time of year. However, Imbolc has…

The noblest intent that a man might share
is giving honor unto others.
Bestowing with kindness, dignity that's due,
since all of mankind are your brothers.
Do not entertain anger within your self
or let malice have reign in your mind,
but be of good cheer and of a compassioned soul
and all of your spoken words be kind.
Let not others effect the way that you live,
but be true to the things of your heart.
Stand firm on those thoughts that you… Continue

THE GREENEST EYES
I'VE EVER SEEN
JUST WALKED IN AND SAID HI
MY HEART BEGAN TO RUN
TO JUMP TO SKIP TO SOAR TO FLY
BECAUSE OOOO THOSE EYES
AND OH THAT HAT
BUT THOSE TIGHT JEANS
WERE WHERE IT WAS AT
HIS BOOTS MATCHED HIS HAT
AND HIS SMILE MADE THINGS CLICK
BUT THOSE TIGHT JEANS
MADE MY HEART BEAT QUICK
HE WASN'T LOOKING FOR LOVE
AND NEITHER WAS I
THE GREENEST EYES
I'VE EVER SEEN
JUST WALKED IN
AND SAID HI

For the night that is done,
dreams disappear like mist.
Into shadow's they run
from sleeps lingering twists.
How many are the sprites
that haunt us in the dark,
and at dawn's early light
they go, leaving their mark?
They retire in secret
as we perform our day,
awaiting night's onset
and their chance to come play,
And when slumber arrives.
We lay our heads to sleep.
You'll see they do survive.
Back in our dreams they'll… Continue

I walk through the field,
pups yelp their fearful alarm,
"mother, where are you?"
Coyote's low call,
"silence children, I am near,"
in awe I listen,
The next day, the road
takes the life of the mother,
poor coyote pups.

Upon the horizon,
majestic mountains sing
of whispering white pines
and grand creatures of wing.
Wandering troupes of clouds
cast shadows in their path.
The suns radiant glow
gives our earth a warm bath.
The golden sheaths of wheat
yield gently to a breeze,
while cool running water
falls from an alpine freeze.
The earth, it breathes deeply
with harmonious swells.
Life giving sustenance
over hill and through… Continue

An occasion, where all time sat as one,
a question was put forth to them.
"Which of you, with your varied spans of life
know best, man and all his whims?"
First millennium, with his shaggy beard
rose up speaking of many years.
"Millions of men have I seen come and go,
multitudes of victories and fears."
"The wars they have fought, the things they have built,
stretching through the life of them all."
"Civilizations that rose to… Continue

I like to see the trees in the park,
I like to see the trees in the yard,
I like to see the birds flying high,
with a place to rest from the sky,
I like to see the trees in the fall,
when winter comes to make her call,
beautiful colors blaze the trees,
something our earth gave us to see,
we need to… Continue

IN this tribulation of times that we are experencing, we can rise above it if we see that most of it does not pretain to us. The money, power, posessions, and cruel behaviors that are expressed in this world, are troubling but we can survive if we do not let get into us. We have the choice of what we allow in us and to go through us and what we choose not to allow. Remember that what we hear and think, we speak. If we hear love for one another and think only good for our brothers and sisters… Continue

I saw him in the distance
just coming over the hill
it could have been just yesterday
for I remember still
my thumb was up
cars went by
I knew they'd stop
I needed a ride
there he came
on that bike
that was his home
we rode for quite a distance
more than a mile or two
but I never learned too much
about this biker Blue
then as quickly
as he rode in
he rode out of my life
with a softly spoken
it's been… Continue

AS IF TOGETHER
YOU ACCEPTED A PLAN
CREATED BY SOMEONE
OTHER THAN MAN
YOU JUMPED YOU HELD ON
YOU HATED YOU FELL
SOMEWHERE IN HELL
YOU LIVED YOU LOVED
YOU LAUGHED YOU CRIED
AND WAITED FOR EVERYONE
ELSE TO DIE
THEN AND NOW
YOU THOUGHT WHAT YOU'D DONE
WOULD ONE DAY HELP
NOW THE PROMISE IS TRUE
AND YOU'RE ALL ALIVE TOO ...
