  • Fruitlands Museum in Harvard MA has a Native American section with a diorama of a Sun Dance. I go there often to sit and think. Even outside the vibe is good. Last fall, just before Peter went back to Tenerife, we went there. It was a sort of solemn moment. His leaving always sets him on edge. We started out towards the museum building with the Indians and the wind kicked up and brought this gift. In all the lush green was a patch of purple. Lent purple, girlie purple, but a joyous color. The color of hope.
