THE LEGEND OF THE PINK BLUEBONNET Years ago an old Hispanic grandmother was walking with her two grandchildren in the bluebonnet fields south of San Antonio. So thick were the blue petals across the plain that it looked as though the Texas sky was resting upon the earth. Scattered within the field of blue, a few white bluebonnets stood proudly at attention. "Grandmother, why are some of the flowers white?" The old lady smiled and said, "The white ones were the inspiration for the pure white Lone Star on the field of blue that waves at us from our Texas flag." The other girl added, "Grandmother, look...some are also pink. Why are some of them pink?" With a look of pride and reverence, she told the little girls, "The pink ones used to be white. But many years ago much blood was shed up river at the church we call the Alamo. The blood of our Texas heroes still rests within this earth, and to this day tints a few special flowers pink, to forever remind us of the cost of freedom."

Advice from María Sabina a Mexican healer and poet. “Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon. With the sound of the river and the waterfall. With the swaying of the sea and the fluttering of birds. Heal yourself with mint, neem, and eucalyptus. Sweeten with lavender, rosemary, and chamomile. Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon. Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars. Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain. Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it. Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead. Jump, dance, sing, so that you live happier. Heal yourself, with beautiful love, and always remember ... you are the medicine.”
