Greetings to all near and far. I hope your autumn is starting out as lovely as ours in Northern Nevada is. The Autumn Equinox has come and gone already and the harvest is still ahead of us. I hope you caught my "Harvest Supper" article at http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art16783.asp
This is a great supper for those chilly evenings to come.
From the CherokeeLink newsletter:
Don't forget to drop in and greet Principal Chief Chad Smith and Deputy Chief Joe Grayson, Jr. at the Rogers County Hog Fry and Picnic Set. More information is available at: http://www.cherokee.org/NewsRoom/FullStory/2665/Page/Default.aspx
The Cherokee satellite communities are listed on the website under organizations. Check them out and see if there is a local community that you can join in for fellowship and cultural learning. This week's featured community is the Cherokees of Central Florida. Be sure to stop by and check them out! http://centralflorida.cherokee.org/
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thought nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

Sometimes it is good and proper to enter into silence. Only in silence can we hear the voice of our soul.

O' GREAT SPIRIT
Help me always
to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember the peace
that may be found in silence.
Till next time, may your moccasins and heart always find a happy path.
