A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness

"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."

1998 Arches, Bryce, Zion & Window Rock, AZ

The American West, including Indians -- in this case on the Navajo Reservation at Window Rock, Arizona. We were the only caucasians at this pow-wow, and were clearly treated as tolerated, but unwelcome outsiders. The friendliest indians we encountered were Crow, but they too, were outsiders with the Navajo. They had traveled from Montana for the pow-wow. We later were befriended by a Hopi cachina carver who took us to his house, showed us his workshop, and talked about being in recovery through AA. I paid him for the cachina he said he made for me, but that was the last I heard from him despite my complaints even to the local police.
