Things progress. I’m halfway through Leslie Marmon Silko’s Ceremony. It’s a devastating, enlightening read concerning the trials of Native American soldiers after World War 2. Silko’s Almanac of the Dead is one of my favorite books, and while Ceremony is less sprawling, it truly captures all the tension and fear that still exists in Native life.
I expect I’ll have more to say on it tomorrow. For now, here’s a song (apologies for the sound quality and my terrible guitar playing). It’s called Candace, and it’s the latest thing I’ve written.
