Ma’ii and Me

by Vicky on April 15, 2011

My travel luck was holding.  Betha and I made it across Snoqualmie Pass last week about forty minutes ahead of an avalanche that closed I-90 for hours.

On our way to the Washington Library Association conference in Yakima, we stopped off in Ellensburg to visit the lovely public library.   What a delight it was to see all the public art in the library and around town.

Best of all was running into that charming rascal, Ma’ii (Kitt Coyote, by Richard Beyer).

He’s always good for a story.

The spring weather and the heady creative mix at the conference blew all the wintry cobwebs out of my brain and reminded me of a poem I wrote in 2006, while living on the Navajo Nation.
