Thought for the Day

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breathof a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs acrossthe grass and loses itself in the sunset."

--Eagle Chief (Letakos-Lesa) Pawnee

Native American Indians, wonderful philosophers, knew alot, they are trying to get it back, lot of wisdom behind them.

I have always had a deep tie to the Native world. Worked with tribes for several years. Even one of my undergraduate degrees is in anthropology with North American Indian concentration. Use the medicine in my spiritual practice.

Jim, how is your granddaughter, and how are you?
