Slurp, slurp goes the snow. Happily, happily, we soak up the gift from Ma Nature and Ol’ Man Winter as we wait for the Maiden of Spring.


And how about this: New Mexico Rep. Deb Haaland has been confirmed the first Native American secretary of the Department of Interior.

From the article:

“Deb Haaland, a member of New Mexico’s Laguna Pueblo, has become the first Native American Cabinet secretary in U.S. history.

“The Senate voted 51-40 Monday to confirm the Democratic congresswoman to lead the Interior Department, an agency that will play a crucial role in the Biden administration’s ambitious efforts to combat climate change and conserve nature.”

For fighting for her people and all indigenous peoples and on behalf of public lands for all Americans, for fighting for science in the face of looming and catastrophic climate change, for working to preserve places of environmental importance and places sacred to Native peoples, she has been called radical. If being fierce in the face of interests that threaten and standing up for the threatened means being called radical, she seems to be well up to taking that title with the dignity for which she is known. She has widespread support, including mine.

She has my support too – I figure, another person who really ‘understands’ the enormity of the post she just got appointed to – and it’s history – from her personal experience! So happy to know she was confirmed! (been working all day and realized I didn’t log in to keep ‘somewhat caught’ up here, as I have been trying to do – so thanks! – I’ll read the news feed tomorrow – LOL)
