Footsteps echoing.
Dirt trudged through once pristine parts
of my cranium.

“Smudging” and Bacteria

Ann's Corner

Having spent many years in close association with First Nations people, through marriage into a west coast community, I came across this practice of “smudging” now and again. I held myself back from participation in this ritual on the occasions I encountered it because I was uneasy about the spiritual aspects of this cultural cleansing procedure and I did not see my husband participate at all. I relied heavily upon him for his knowledge and wisdom about matters relating to his own culture. It was also my understanding that, as a Christian, my spiritual cleansing came ultimately through the shed blood of Christ.
Here is a picture and a CBC article related to the practice of “smudging.

White-Tailed Deer Fawns

What do you call a deer with no eyes?

I have no I-Deer

Interesting Fact: At birth, white tail fawns have a spotted reddish coat that is fairly silky. There may be several hundred spots on the coat. The spots enable the fawn to camouflage itself, with the colors blending well with the surrounding natural environment. They usually weigh between 4 to 8 pounds at birth. The whitetail fawn loses its spots by the end of October of the same year it was born, or within 3 to 4 months after birth.  ( http://www.the-whitetail-deer.com/whitetail-deer-fawns.html )
