I was originally asked by a health magazine to write about one of my Reiki experiences and this resulted in the story entitled "Small Miracles`" detailing my Mother's experience with Reiki. After its publication, my father, who has been telling stories all of his life, encouraged me to write more. My writing is a way of teaching which feels natural to me following my long history as a technical writer and software teacher. I write when spirit moves me to do so about topics that spirit presents. I hope you will enjoy reading them and find some small nugget of gold for yourself.

The wind blowing over the sweet grass at the evening of the day
sunset and the smell of hay
The fire whose smoke fills my hair
while flickering light
to look deep
a way to meditate
The dusk and with it comes
the smell so familiar of the deepest well
and a river
whose banks are calling me home

As I awoke this morning I was reminded of standing on my great great-grandmother’s grave yesterday morning. I could have stayed there all day long or just sat down and slept. It felt so good. Never before have I felt so solid in an energy source. It was like a signature key that belonged to me, and my DNA knew it. I was encompassed, surrounded and held by the universal force including hundreds of my ancestral family members.

This paper’s primary focus is to explore the role of the trickster in Amerindian spirituality, their society and propose a universal application of trickster medicine today. The trickster concept is revealed through exploring oral traditions and the nuances of aboriginal language. It is supported by background information of the Red Path spirituality and a brief historical orientation to Native American Indians and our local Algonquin Nation (listed as appendices.)
