« Still dreaming of Hawaii... | Main | The Sunday Poem »

September 17, 2006


And, of course, there is N. Scott Momaday's In the Bear's House with the wonderful conversations between Yahweh and Urset. One of my favorites is the chapter where Urset asks Yahweh for a prayer--a lovely thing that starts "I pray that you are kept safe throughout this day, that you live as wholly as you can..."

As I am so new to this blog format I am not sure if this is the place, but I want to thank Terri and all the Endicott folks for this site--It led me to Wiscon this spring, and through that to conversations with Catherine Crowe, Erzebet and others that are still buzzing through my life. It gave me the chance to share some of the art/hats/charms I have been working on (thanks to Veronica for her enthusiasm)and the realization that there is a larger community of folks for whom the magic of the world is expressed through story and art is a powerful experience of recognition and joy. The introduction to new authors and artists is exciting and expansive. I particularly love the Sunday poem, and a few weeks ago laughed when I saw Helen Klebesadel's spiral tree painting--she is a client and teacher of mine, and I am lucky enough to have one of her tree spirals in my bodywork room.

I sincerely thank you for your work, my world opens and my life becomes bigger because of it.
