Dirt Worship

Whether there’s proof or not, I think I’ll add this to my belief system. This image crossed my Facebook feed yesterday. It was shared by poet/writer/artist (and Mvskoke Nation member) Joy Harjo. I like it. When measured against some of the religious mumbo jumbo that leads so many other folks to froth at the mouth, hate, and slaughter one another over, this all seems pretty benign to me, particularly since I’ve identified as a tree hugging dirt worshiper for about thirty years now. Feel free to join me.
