the Morning Doves Baked Oatmeal
Kathleen is a Morning Dove who is descended from the mysterious
Spirit of the Cloud tribe that inhabits a remote part of the
southwest. There are six daughters who travel the continent
and look for signs, marks, they experience that which mankind
no longer appreciates or had taken for granted. They place
omens creating hallowed ground for future generations who
will gain sight on what really matters the most, a clean food
chain, fresh air to breathe and water to drink. She stopped
by the bed and breakfast on her journey north. Quietly sipping
some fresh sassafras tea, she wove tails that have been in
her lineage for generations and then shared with us a delicious
recipe her mother had created. It's so mysteriously pleasant.
