Making medicine


Card describing the work in pocket on inside front cover. Making Medicine, a poem by Luis J. Rodriguez, calls for a positive shift in the way individuals interact with one another. It also highlights the importance of our need to be more attentive tothe preservation of our coexistence with other life forms on Earth.
