your daily dose of spiritual food


as i sit here freezing trying to write, i go to minnesota to put things in perspective.

i may be cold, but it’s so much colder in other parts of the world right now.

suddenly, i am not that cold anymore.

these rolling hills i saw through the window of my brother and sister’s car as we were ‘paseando’ back from canoeing down a river on a beautiful day.

the name of the land comes from the sioux indigenous word ‘minni-sotah’. ‘minni’ is ‘water’, and ‘sotah’ sky-tinted’.

water and sky are perfect themes for the state, as there are more than ten thousand lakes reflecting the heavens.
