Raven talks about water

Author and adventurer Craig Childs is a man born thirsty. Under Solstice skies in the Galisteo Basin where Raven gurgled and shouted like a rowdy commentator from a peanut gallery, Childs talked about the secrets of water.
Beneath us, earth's lifeblood flowed and to prove it, digging a hole (not even as long as your arm) gave us fresh water.
Raven, content to drink at the trough under the windmill, mimicked the sound of bubbles rising.
Come meet my raven family--from the little juvie shaman to the brassy one who walks like a man -- from 5-7 pm at the opening of my solo exhibit at Randall Davey Audubon Center in Santa Fe.
PS-- The Audubon exibit  was 2010. My  Ravens are currently roosting at  NM State Land  Office until Nov 30, 2011.
