The following excerpt is taken from one of our favorite new cookbooks, Full Moon Feast, by Jessica Prentice, written about the deep connection all people groups have with the cycle of seasons. We offer this as the introduction to our spring newsletter and hope that you will enjoy it and find it as inspiring as we did.

Sap Moon

Once again we shall
See the snow melt
Taste the flowering sap
Touch the budding seeds.
Smell the whitening flowers
Know the renewal of life.

        --From an Anishnabeg (Ojubway)Thanksgiving for Spring,
                    Translated from the Anishabeg
