¡°Don¡¯t give me no broccoli
Or any Swiss fondue
Baby if you want to rock me
Give me good ole barbeque¡±
In the heart of Summer, when it¡¯s nice and hot, and you¡¯ve been working real hard and have worked up
an appetite, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven or stove, and heat up the house even more,
so you can eat a hearty meal. So what do many of us do? We go outside, preferably in a cool shady spot,
and fire up the barbeque grill and get ready to chow down on some finger lickin¡¯, protein filled, yummy
goodness. ¡°Barbeque sliced beef and bread, Ribs and sausage and a cold Big Red¡± says this mouthwater-
ing song by Robert Earl Keen. Indeed. Throw in some potato or macaroni salad, and some watermelon
too. There is something extra we get from barbeque besides satisfied bellies, something spiritual. You
know it because it gets better when it is shared. In fact the more the people sharing the barbeque, the
more pleasure everyone derives from it. It¡¯s one of those magical treasures that brings people together,
allows us to enjoy good food outside in nature, and seasons our meat with secret spices, known only to
the chef within. As the song goes on, ¡°Barbeque makes old ones feel young. Barbeque makes everybody
someone. If you¡¯re feelin¡¯ puny and you don¡¯t know what to do, treat yourself to some meat, eat some

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger. It is
also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young in its
nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be observant and to
pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use, a blessing for
which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk has keen eyesight, it
is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us. Hawk is also about new
beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
