Memory share

Dear Ananda,
What a joy it is to take some time to think of that vision quest so long ago. Thank you for that. I hope you enjoy my memories and can use it in your blog. Blessing to you.

I want to share some sweet memories I have of David. When I was about 10 or 11 years old I joined my sister on a vision quest into the Sangre de cristo mountains of southern Colorado. It amazes me that I still have an almost photographic memory of the beautiful valley in which we camped, the clearing where people meet in circle, and all the wonderful places I got to hike with David. Due to my young age I had the blessing of staying back in camp with David while everyone went out on their solo quest. I felt it was a great honor and a supremely fun time to have David's full attention. We got to climb a nearby mountain and take long walks through the woods. I remember once when we found a large patch of wild strawberry. We spent what seemed like an hour on our hands and knees searching for and of course eating the tiny berry's. And then there was sweet time we spent at the camp tending to the fire. It warms my heart to this day to remember how caring and generous David was of his time and attention. I will forever cherish these memories with him.
