circle“We bind ourselves together

by taking hold of each other’s hands

so firmly and forming a circle

so strong that if a tree

should fall upon it, it could not shake nor

break it, so that our people

and grandchildren shall remain in

the circle in security, peace, and happiness.” – Dekanawidah

A Circle


tea“Suitable moments for drinking tea:

When we are interrupted while contemplating

During a good conversation deep into the night

When there is a light soft drizzle

With agreeable friends

When the children are in school

In a bamboo grove on a spring evening

Under unusual rocks.”

– Ch’a-su
