Tonight I read a note from a dear young friend Lindsay Kigueta Borrows. Lindsay is one of those individuals whose intelligence, generousity of spirit, strength and agility, gift for languages (English, Ojibway, Spanish….), beauty and kindness are blanketed and glued together by her compassion, empathy, and willingness to reach out.
In her letter Lindsay quoted Chief Crowfoot,
“What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
The breath of a buffalo in the winter.
The little shadow that runs across the grass then loses itself in the sunset”.
Thanks Lindsay for reminding me.
