Pachamama Tree Bole ©Rose De Dan 2005

When preparing for ceremonies such as the Blessing Ceremony for the Duwamish River—an industrial and Superfund site and wildlife oasis—I often find that synchronous events occur that focus my attention on what is important. And those pointers can come from some surprising sources.
