Re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body...”
~ Walt Whitman ~
Leaves of Grass
Lost in the woods
One day I was traveling with my Grandfather through the mountains. There was nothing, but nature for miles and miles. My grandfather was a few steps ahead of me, but I stopped to admire this blue lizard, who seemed to be sticking his tongue out at me. He was truly wild and beautiful. After a while, I turned to look for my Grandfather and he was nowhere to be found. I fell into a panic and began frantically looking for him as if this depended on my very life. To my relief, I saw him sitting beneath a the shadow of a tree, nonchalantly keeping himself hydrated. He asked "What's the matter?" I told him that I thought I had lost him forever. "Indian people don't get lost. We find new ways to get home." He tousled my hair and quickly the two of us broke out in laughter for some time beneath that old tree.— Gianni Crow
