We got lost in the Hoosier National Forest. Should have listened to the crows who warned "Be Careful." When we realized we had lost our way, it was not long until Jane saw a red-tailed hawk circling in the sky. When he was out of sight, she said, "We must go this way." I had thoughts of doubt about the whole thing. How did Jane know that red-tailed hawk was showing her the direction we were to travel? Why not me? After all, I'm the Indian!

And sparkled with a brilliant hue.
