The Trickster Stirring


In all of the American Indian truth stories that I know of there is a sometimes wise,
sometimes foolish and sometimes destructive 'trickster'. This figure is raven to some, coyote to many, Iktomi the spider to Lakota, but always wild and unpredictable. The trickster teaches in ways we often do not welcome. The trickster is at work in my heart and mind. I may not write for a while. I'll wait for trickster to finish.

I absolutely understand the need for a break. Hope the trickster isn't too crazy and brings you helpful things.

I hope we don't have to wait for too long, there are many out here that need your wisdom...
