Water Day Celebration

International Water Day...

Wednesday, March 22, 2017. 
Here a couple of Mandarin ducks visited Lake Tomahawk.  Me too!
I'm getting better at walking more briskly around the lake...great exercise for me before lunch!

 In the late afternoon I went to the French Broad River in Asheville to take part in a Water Blessing, and saw Gail's nice poster about "Water is life."

Beautiful wolf drum.

Another beautiful frame drum, this time with great blue heron.  Thanks Barbara from Asheville!

Celia St. King shared one of her own songs, which she will be singing at performance at Jubilee on March 26 at 7 pm.

Making the ceremonial space, we each were smudged with white sage by our Cherokee leader.

Singing some old favorites, "Going to Lay Down my Sword and Shield...Down by the Riverside!"

Cathy Holt holding her World Water Day sign as she listens to Emily sharing her own water loving ideas.

A circle allows everyone to be equal!

Ms. Oxendine represented the Lumbee tribe and...

co-led the ritual ceremony down on the bank of the river, during which we took no photos.

But afterwords, the couple of dozen good hearted souls gathered for a group picture.

We share the love of our waters being pure and available to all!
