Wesak Offering – Verdigris River, Coffeyville, Kansas, May 5, 2023

Greetings Beloved Kin,

I chose a place along the Verdigris River in the country north of Coffeyville, KS for my Wasek Offering. (We call it ver dee gree in Kansas.) The pull-off was a big mud hole after the rains yesterday. The climb down was muddy and steep, reminding me of the embankment and my fall on my last visit to the woods. The offering of roses, daisies, and fresh berries was placed halfway down in a spillway for the “living bodies of water” in Mother Nature.


The ritual was one of those “human blood, sweat, and tears” events in the moment. My prayers were offered in the car, after. I was close to the time. It was a beautiful day, even if it didn’t play out the way I dreamed it could be. I’ve been the hermit for a couple of weeks, so I took advantage of the time to end with a celebration feast at the local Mexican food restaurant. I forgot that May 5th also marks Cinco de Mayo. Happy Cinco De Mayo! (A celebration of underdogs who defeated one of the most powerful armies in the world.) The host agreed to a selfie with me. K’inich Ahau is over my right shoulder, and Montezuma looks like he’s offering the blessing to my head. 🙂

This is more fun than I’ve had in a while, so Sun/AHAU was shining a light that dispelled the hard energies of the past couple of days. A prayer of “movement” always carries more weight, no matter how the event plays out in the down-below. This was a lighthearted day surrounded by the peace of Mother Nature and the joy of Humanity.

I pray the light is shining down and around you wherever you are. The eclipse marks an ending and a new beginning. I pray the end of sorrows, and the beginning of New Faith that God’s plan will work out.

much love, in lak’ech,
