I have not posted regularly for a long time so for anyone who has checked in, sorry. I will be going off to rehab for a month and that's a strange and somewhat frightening adventure. Since I started drinking in mt early teens, it has taken a while to get to this point and it is disappointing to think I can't unhook myself from this without help, but there you have it. I will try to write about this in the future. meantime best wishes and keep warm.
e-qua yona, Cherokee for 'big bear' is the only nick name I've ever had, at least one I liked. One of my favorite ever students called me that when I taught for the Eastern Band Cherokee. It is Mato Tanka in Lakota.
I have lived a nomadic life and have enjoyed most of it so far.
Seeking balance with the universe or great mystery is what life oughta be about.
