Visiting the Catholic Diocese

I visited the Catholic Diocese of Spokane this afternoon to obtain a photocopy of an old article from the Inland Register. The article was written by Alice Abrahamson of the Chewelah Band of Indians, and recounts a brief history of our family (we descend from the same family tree). She alludes briefly to the spiritual traditions of our people, but says the old ways are forgotten. Thankfully, a few of us still remember.

In other "news," I had the chance to visit with three remarkable people over the course of the day; Inge Mebes (my father's former wife), Michael Hollaman from the MAC, and Deb Abrahamson. Each conversation was totally separate from the others, and yet each one had a distinctly spiritual quality.
