This painting is quite special to me as it depicts one of my most favorite places and times to be on the planet. After sitting up all night with the medicine, the ancestors, and the fireplace; the call for water is made with tenor songs accompanied by a heartbeat that can grab the center of the earth. The women is outside the door and waits for the beat to continue on in the ripple of sound that occurs when it ends. She enters with a big smile and wide eyes as she kneels down and places the bucket between her and the fire. She greets her beloveds as she prepares it. She clears herself and allows all that is to flow through her and that tobacco into the bucket that would nourish the people. This prayer will fill the water with everything they need to reenter the world outside. You see she would deliver the message to their very cells, that water for the the grandmothers. She communicates and loves through that smoke to fill all those who sat up and purged and grew through the night. They will need a good watering and the water will carry the final healing of the night cycle. They will get exactly what they need to complete the prayer because the water insists upon it. It is part of us, water. Mini Wisoni ~ Water is life! So, after she puts all of that love into this blessing of all life on earth in the bucket sitting between the fire and her. She has done her job and passes it to the left so that everyone and everything including the fire may receive the blessing. The love is delivered into the cells of every single prayer who receives it upon their lips. It's a cosmic place to sit. It blows me away that I get to sit there. It is a place to hollow bone, to allow the flow of all of that communication as the portals close for the night. Good Morning Relatives...
