A very fluffy tailed squirrel has found our bird feeder.
When we were in Arizona I was given the very special present of a Kachina. This one is called Hahai-i, the Grandmother Kachina, and was a precious present from one Grandmother to another. “The Hopi doll carvers make her effigy in the flat form to be the first present that a baby receives.” From Hopi Kachinas by Barton Wright, a complementary present given at the same time. “Kachinas are the spirit essence of everything in the real world,” and they have truly caught my imagination. My Hahai-I already has companions which we bought in Phoenix at the Heard museum shop. I’ll tell you about those two soon.
