Glittering Grace

” Across the plains of glittering grace,

behold Winter’s beautiful face”

“…But all along the Rockies you can feel it in the air
From Telluride to Boulder down below
The closest thing to heaven on this planet anywhere
Is a quiet Christmas morning in the Colorado snow…” Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

The deer pictures were taken from my front door.  The rest were taken driving to see our daughter.  Colorado is certainly a beautiful place to live and we are lucky to see all the seasons in all their glory.

A Quote that Spoke to Me

You want to know who’s a real medicine man?  He’s the one who doesn’t say, “I’m a medicine man.”  He doesn’t ask you to come to him.  You’ve got to go and ask him and you’ll find he’s always there among his people.

He doesn’t go off to the city and open an office.  Once a medicine man leaves his own territory he loses most of his power.  All the sacred plants he knows are where he comes from.  He doesn’t know the plants of other places.  The Creator gave him his gift so he could serve his own people where he’s from.  So he stays home and helps them.  That’s who the real medicine man is.
