A Poignant Message for 2015

Wild horses in Nevada
While away from MuRefuge the month of December, immersing ourselves in Native Peoples culture and their gorgeous Southwest landscape, both Dwight and I continued our reading of Robin Wall Kimmerer's Braiding Sweetgrass. In her chapter "Allegiance to Graditude" she shares the Thanksgiving Address. My plan was to create a rendition here on BE-ing Rooted which was promptly dismissed when I came across this stunning presentation on Dance For All People. To usher in 2015 please join me in honoring and expressing thanksgiving to ALL by reading the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address.

A pair of coyotes just across the street from the casita where we stayed in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
A few days later we saw the same pair on our morning walk. Shasta and the male
spent some while checking each other out, from a distance of course.
Shasta wanted to be "up close and personal."

HAPPY NEW YEAR and all during the year remember to
