68. Legend of Merry Nell

The Comanches tell the story

of She-Who-Is-Alone, the girl who

sacrificed her warrior doll, ended the famine,

was renamed


After the drought of Mom’s cancer finally

ended with her March death, we got better

bluebonnets than anyone could remember.

Even without her, I am not alone.

Everywhere I see a bluebonnet

— in a ditch, in an

emtpy field, in an alley —

I know that She still dearly loves her people.

Go right ahead.
