I wish Peace for all of you today.
Thanks for coming to read another stone
in the River of Stones project.

River of Stones logo in my sidebar.
Let me tell you about my peace pole...
My Peace pole stands
in the center of my garden, and
has words of peace on each side.
One side you see above.
The other three sides have
Native American tribal words of peace.
Hozhqqji is Navajo for
Ikachi techqua is Hopi for
"blending with the land and celebating life",
Mitakuye oyasin is Sioux for
"with all things we are related",
and Onen is Iroquois for
"peace be with you".
I burned all the words into the pole
with a small wood burning tool
that belonged to my mother.
are about the most ancient kind of landmarks.
Each stone has been placed
at the bottom of my peace pole
by visitors to my home.
Each stone represents that persons prayer.
My small stone for today...
Like some leafy creature,
exotic and large,
the philodendron's arms
safeguard a small
and timid creature
Savor the Day!
