A Cherokee Feast Of Days
COLD MONTH UNU LA TA NEE'
A new day, a new year, a new era. Many moons have passed and they were not all spent in good pursuits. We spent time lavishly, we be- stowed a profusion of attention on people and cir-
cumstances unworthy of our purpose. I am young and have all the time in the world, or I am old now and there's no need to try this late in life. Youth counts the hours the way Abram counted the stars. The aged bow to these words of Chief
Joseph of the Nez Perce: "Hear me my chiefs! I am tired, my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more." But we cannot decide in one moment how many moons we have.
The Great Spirit sees our hearts and loves us any- way. We ask permission to do well with this new time and we know we are not alone.
The frog does not drink up the pond in which he lives.
