This is Victoria Slind-Flor:
honored as sacred work.
That is me in the middle with Bill Silveira and Saundra Warren.
The first offering was "fire". Incense was lit, passed around,
then laid at the Lady's feet.
Next, "water" was offered. Each glass came from a different area of the country: the Colorado, Mississippi, Willamette, Potomac, the Oakland Estuary and the Great Lakes.
Cynthia poured the water onto the new rose bushes, which are an essential part of the Lady's lore. Neighbors are being enlisted to water and tend these bushes.
