Dear Elder, I understand yourDear Elder, I understand your view of living in concert with Earth's energy, but please remember that other people around the world feel this energy differently due to their geographic locations and create their calendars accordingly. Native Americans (I am descended from Cherokee farmers in the Carolinas) based their calendars upon the particular energy and cycles felt in North America, whereas the ancient Celtic peoples, or ancient African people, or ancient peoples of the steppes of Asia felt different rhythms in their daily lives. I am certain that as the first people crossed over onto the American continent from Asia, they had to adjust their traditional perceptions of the Earth's rhythms accordingly. There is a great deal that all of us do not know about each others experiences and perceptions in this world. It is wise to keep our hearts and minds open to each other.
