Yo-oh-hey-yo. Hey-ey-yo-yo.... he sang.
We wound our way around the bird feeders several times and around the edge of the opening in the trees that surround the house.
A dog next door, hearing the chant, started barking very loudly and with a desire to communicate. His owner apologized, saying he was not usually like that. We offered a specific blessing for the dog, who was being affected by our ceremony.
Coming back to where we began, we touched the Earth in reverence and gratitude, fingers pointed downward. Having blessed the Earth, our small ceremony was complete.
