Ojibwe storyteller and writer Jim Northrup dies at age 73

From here.

Quote
Jim Northrup, an Ojibwe storyteller whose books, plays and poems were widely published and produced, died of complications of cancer Monday night. He was 73.

Northrup embraced his Anishinaabe language and heritage and helped non-Indians understand it through his plays, including a one-man show, “Rez Road 2000,” produced in 2000 at the Great American History Theatre in St. Paul, and his books, including “Walking the Rez Road,” “Rez Road Follies,” “Anishinaabe Syndicated: A View from the Rez,” “Dirty Copper” and “Rez Salute: the Real Healer Dealer.”
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

Memory eternal. I have to go read some of his work now.

Memory eternal!  Ojibwe Prayer

Lord Jesus, let me know myself and You, and desire nothing save only You.
Let me hate myself and love You.
Let me do everything for the sake of You.
Let me humble myself and exalt You.
Let me think of nothing except You.
Let me die to myself and live in You.
Let me accept whatever happens as from You.
Let me banish myself and follow You, and ever desire to follow You.
Let me flee from myself and take refuge in You,
That I may deserve to be defended by You.
Let me fear for myself.
Let me fear You, and let me be among those who are chosen by You.
Let me distrust myself and put my trust in You.
Let me be willing to obey for the sake of You.
Let me cling to nothing but You,
And let me be poor because of You.
Look upon me, that I may love You.
Call me that I may see You, and forever rejoice in You. Amen.

-St Augustine of Hippo
אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה

For the Christian life is nothing if it is not a struggle against the spirit of every age for the sake of eternity." - Fr Seraphim Rose
