Places

“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way.  Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.  Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.”  ~ Linda Hogan, Native American Writer

Sometimes it’s wonderful to stand in their shoes, to visit the places our ancestors lived, and to pay respect at their grave sites.
