While home in Santa Fe, NM.
Returning the next morning.
This altar is located on a steep hill in a tiny valley. Mary was falling apart the last time I visited, so I did my best to restore her. Several wonderful changes began to occur in the village, including more Mary statues arriving in the community. Now she's receiving frequent visits and blessings. This star was made near the altar.
The Blue Corn Star is a gift of love to Mother earth.
Offering blue corn meal is a very ancient gesture of feeding the earth.
Later in the day I visited the shrine and church of El Santuario de Chimayo
