This season of the American calendar is called January. But, for many of the Navajo, this season is expressed as 'yas nilth tees' - its the time when the 'snow is cooked by the sun.' For me this time reminds me of my late maternal grandfather. He left this earth two years ago now. I miss his presence in my life, and I always think of him everyday it seems.
I just wanted to share his smile with you. His birthday was this time of year on the 18th of January.
Rest in Peace Papa.
