June 2 2010 Native American Newsletter
Greetings to all near and far. May Spring bring you much joy and hopes for new beginnings.
Do you hear what I hear?
I love to sit on my secluded patio at night and listen to the sounds of Nature. The crickets always sound out with a very loud chorus, and little tree frogs compete for attention out there.
I can tell if another night creature approaches from the mountain because there is sudden silence and the crickets and frogs stop their joyful sounds.
Sometimes Brother Coyote makes his presence known by speaking to Grandmother Moon. Sometimes the mountain lion will let the community know she is on top of things by screeching out her hauntingly beautiful message that she is near.
Once in awhile I will hear an Owl ask his eternal question. When the creek fills up with snow melt I will hear the bull frogs come out and claim their place in Nature.
I love Nature and all the critters that live amongst her beauty. I can smell the desert sage when the soft rains of Spring has moistened the leaves. It is such a wonderful, sweet, fresh fragrance.
I am happy living by the little mountain and say prayers of gratitude every day to Great Spirit for giving me such peace and beauty.
WILD Mystery Series
Every time I read one of Sandi Ault's books I am transported to the beautiful Pueblo areas of the Southwest United States. I am looking forward to her fifth book in the series. For more information on these books check out my book reviews at:

Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,

We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
