On the surface, Moundville doesn't look all that exciting. It is just a field with grassy mounds dotted around it. But if you study its history and use your imagination, you can begin to see it as a community of a peoples who participated in life by growing food, making art objects, and honoring their spiritual beliefs. I wrote this article to describe my own feelings about the energy of the place and share an imaginative journey into the past.

I am a storyteller. I like to wrap inspirational messages inside little vignettes of my life or the lives of others. I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, have lived in an RV, and am now living in a senior apartment. Everything I've experienced in my 66 years in this incarnation is fair game to be written about.
