4. Favorite summer activity--going to the powwow to watch the fancy shawl dancers. The riot of color, the athleticism, the grace, the smell of the grass...it's complete bliss, like walking into a rainbow.

Always seek the truth within your heart and not within your mind. The truth lives in spirit. Be mindful that your truth may not be the truth of your neighbours and that collectively we possess the truth of spirit manifested in us.
