A friend of mine asked me what I mean't when I write "All My Relations".This term is used by Native Americans after prayer or ceremony to show that everything on the Earth is related. We cannot live without trees or rain, solid ground, mountains, deltas, oceans, clouds..etc. These things are literally our family. A biologist by the name of Lewis Thomas describes our bodies as shared, rented and occupied by countless other tiny organisms, without we couldn't move a muscle, drum a finger or think a thought. The planet and the universe is like that. One giant, living, breathing cell with all of's parts linked to symbiosis. For us it's even more critical, Earth would do just fine without humans, but obviously we cannot exist with out Mother Earth, the sun, moons, stars. Speaking of stars, did you know it's a proven fact everything in a star is in us. Very cool thought. All my relations.
