Long Ago Pathways
This small pathway hints of the long ago first settlers of our country. With none of the tools and implements that we have today, they created places and ways to live.
Rocks, rubbed across other rocks were made into implements. Beads were fashioned from bone and wood and small rocks. Hunters hunted and farmers grew crops.
I have always had a deep abiding sadness for what the later settlers did to these first people. This small pathway is a tribute to what came before and the skill and thought with which they made their way through their lives.
"Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use." - Carlos Castaneda
