Yesterday was a big day at the Peyote Lorax Ranch. It started with the wonderful sight of many thousand freshly sprouted medicine seedlings. This was a long planned for and highly anticipated event. Even the sky seemed to be heralding a new season and new birth as balloons and birds soared in celebration!
I enjoyed the beautiful morning by observing new medicine sprouting and visiting with some of the local native cacti growing in this beautiful Sonoran Desert.
The previous night I attended a musical performance hosted by my old tipi friends and while there I ran into another couple of people who I had not seen in many years. This week has had the distinct flavor of spicy welcome home salsa, Tucson style. So yesterday morning, I decided to stay with that theme and met another old friend, a tipi roadman, for lunch. And it just happened to be the opening day of the annual 4th Avenue Street Fair so I rendezvoused there with my Canadian sister who had just arrived in town. There’s nothing like filling each other in on life updates for accentuating the cycles of fellowship that take years to complete their orbits. Tucson is my nexus for these kind of long term connections and it was a pleasure to renew our bonds of friendship.
Wandering through the crafts at the street fair, I happily came upon the very exact item I need for our seedling project- The complete Lorax story with blank pages for journaling. Perfect!
Later that afternoon I met with friends on the Tohono O’odham reservation to help put up the tipi for ceremony. As usual there were stories, and learning, and the making of new acquaintances.
After helping set up tipi I returned home to The Peyote Lorax ranch to enjoy the feeling and looks of the seedling sanctuary nursery.
Spring has officially sprung at Morning Star Conservancy’s Seedling Sanctuary. Now, as the seedlings are sprouting and taking root, is the perfect time to offer your financial support to this important project. Please spread the word- we can’t succeed without public support!
