The image is a link to an alternate view.
In a misty dawn at the center of the world is the morning star, tending
cattle at the other side of this
fence. Several years away you can see
smoke from a hogan where an old man is cooking breakfast.
He has already been outside to
pray, recognized the morning star and his relationship to
it, as he stands at the center of miracles.
A morning prayer
may be heard. This prayer lasts 4 min.
and 45 sec.
