snake medicine

This is what we found while mowing the yard this weekend.  The boys were not happy to see a snake skin in the backyard and went promptly to the snake altar and had a conversation, restating our boundaries and the desire to have all snakes leave the property immediately, while thanking them for their continued messages and strength.
Bodhi is often found, hands in "namaste" and having a snake chat "with his heart" seated in front of his makeshift alter. I have become the fearless leader, checking the grounds thoroughly whenever the boys are outside, preferring to be the paschal lamb if need be.  Who would have guessed that my beloved mountain was also a den of vipers.  It is a good metaphor, so long as there are no more trips to the hospital.
