Smooth Dancing


In the beginning there was the dawn.

And through the mist came the vision of peace after the great ice.

Trees abundant and creatures flourished.

Lakes and fish make the soul soar and the heart to rest for this was good.

The land provided crops for sustenance for both animals and humans. 

The people danced for joy!
