Our language is mostly considered "vocables", the honor and respect of keeping the Fire and Earth alter come directly from my people, the Carrizo Indians. The Medicine grows only in one location and that is in south Texas, geographically called the Rio Grand Valley. Completed Feb 28, 2013 but is a depiction of the rising sun of March 1st, 2013. In the lower right corner (2nd picture) is the rising sun with Mercury to its right and Venus to its left.
