Subject: Autobiography of Sage Sweetwater

Dear Readers,

Autobiography Journal of Sage Sweetwater are my future newsletters for awhile. Some of my fans think I am Stone Creek Woman and have said so. What do you think?

SAGE SWEETWATER CREATIVE PROPERTIES is the flagship of Stone Creek Woman, my autobiograpy journal, divided into six parts: Shared Blessings, Endangered Species, Sacred Shelters, Canoe Medicine, Moving the Pack, and Reintroduction.


CANOE MEDICINE:

Stone Creek Woman, an entry in Sage's journal, "A Mestizo Messenger, Mestizo {half-Spanish, half Indian}of beauty, calm, and smile. Gifted with healing arts, a talented medicine woman, spinning new wisdom, weaving old ways, and dyeing battered women into colorful bolts of sturdy material, a living spirit of Mother Nature.

According to LIBRARY OF SAGE, in past centuries, Stone Creek Woman's chronicles would have been pounded out on a clay tablet, chiseled on rock in ancient Native American messages, which took the form of petroglyphs and pictographs, and in hieroglyphics, Egyptian picture carvings. The ancient Peruvians used a device called a quipu for recording information. The quipu consisted of colored and knotted strings, which were used like elements of written language. Today, Sage's writing communication chronicled Stone Creek Woman on parchment paper, a paper made from the skins of sheep and goat, a paper treated with sulfuric acid, then carefully washed to wrap meat in.

Studiously packed in her burlap bag, Sage brought with her to Stone Creek Woman's camp, a fresh roll of butcher paper to record Stone Creek Woman's wisdoms. Sage prefers to write on meat-wrapping paper simply because it preserves nature-based products. She stores her nature-based words, freezes the fall paragraphs so they can season until she is ready to slowly unthaw them one spring to use in a warm, healing novel with six chapters, one for each of the six holes a traditional Native American flute has: One hole for each of the four cardinal directions, a hole for skyward, and a hole for earthward, signifying the wind that purifies and breathes life into the heart, winds of renewal for women.

Sage was thinking there would be no better time than here in this backcountry known as Stone Creek Woman's
"medicine land," that she break free, pull the stopper and drain her phobia straight to Hell via the bath, hoping the immersion may purge her nightmares.

"Go to her. Sage has reached a place of spiritual passage. I can feel her water quest has been carried out. Fall is the proper season for such a water journey. She will be shaken, tired, and in a state of confusion. Inside the lodge, there will be more than one medewadji, animal spirits. We cannot see them, but we can feel them. Turtle rests at the bottom of her waterways, feet up, keeping her from sinking into the ground. The other spirits are perched around the sweat hoop," Stone Creek Woman told Lilliehaun.

Stone Creek Woman gave Lilliehaun instructions on applying an herbal ointment on the pruned "bark" of Sage consisting of spruce and pine pitch, pulverized catnip, and a third ingredient, Bag Balm, a medicinal and cosmetic ointment applied to soothe cow udders from nursing.

The final step in making a canoe seaworthy was to seal the stitched seams in the bark with pitch, analogous to sealing seams of battered women.

Just like Stone Creek Woman's mikveh (Jewish women's bath) and sweat bath is heated by stones, the Native Americans heated stones over an open wood fire, then layered the stones in the bottom of the hollowed-out shell of the canoe to heat up the boiling water inside to stretch the canoe's width, known as widening the hull. A cover was placed over the shell to keep the steam in the cavity to soften the cedar, allowing the stretching process to increase the craft's durability.

"I see you need a dugout, or shelter to clear your waterways, and transport your fear from the depths of polluted dreams," Stone Creek Woman told Sage. "You need to work on widening your hull, the frame of your ship. One needs a healthy, sturdy vessel to navigate the choppy waters of life."



CANOE MEDICINE CONTINUED NEXT MONTH.......

Until we meet again, be well, be safe, and Blessed Be. I love you all!
