Spring Offerings Postcard
This is a photo from about the mid-to-late nineties, one of those days crisp with serenity and synchronicity. It is of a small shallow cataract in the stream of hot springs water on its way to the desert basin. My children played in it when they were younger.
I was told it is called "Squaw Hole" and it was the first and frequently a spot where I took my kids and friends to camp over many years. Things seem to have changed a bit elsewhere, yet this spot still remains a location for me to present "offerings" each time I come out to the springs. I offer to the spirit of the springs and thank all spirits and all the ancestors that have maintained these springs and thank them for the many blessings I've received and petition, mostly, for happiness for all and world peace. I do wishbones and lit candled birthday cakes too.
