Monday I enjoyed going to the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah to welcome the 200 motorcyclists who make a journey each year in honor of those who walked the trail so many years ago. Although it was hot during the afternoon, it became more pleasant as the sun started to set and we were able to have a meal together and listen to a Cherokee storyteller. The riders, the folks who set up this event and other fellow artists who came remind me why I love this place. Wado and Mvto (thank you in Cherokee and Mvskoke) to those who stopped by my booth to look at my art and visit. Have a safe ride home.
