by the way George, I have been thinking about "tricksters" a lot lately...something towards myself..I know that the raven - like in Haida culture is a trickster figure...so is the monkey a trickster as well?  And which culture(s) are they tricksters in or are monkeys as tricksters more of an archetype?

Hi George, yes, I know that you have been a long believer in the connectedness of creation of which humanity is neither above or below the rest of the creation; humanity can teach the universe, but humanity should also honour and learn from the universe of creation in a balanced way...thanks for those comments...

The puppies. We can learn a lot from animals, if we listen. In my two books, the monkey and the raven are the teachers, the  humans the listeners and learners who learn much.

I am grateful to remember the Ojibway hierarchy of creation.  Youngest of creation is humanity, next are the animals, next is the plant community and finally the physical aspects of the earth itself.  Think about that when you take a puppy for a walk after a stressful day caused by a human-centric and imposed reality and the puppy makes you laugh.  Who is the wise one here, us or the puppies?

Bruce, I made you administrator now. The group was created by you when you first were part of the site. So, in returning, the site doesn't know that you're the same person. Should be all fixed now....

I probably should have spelled it "epiphanic", rather than epiphonic, since it has to do with epiphany, rather than phonics. Picky, picky, picky me!

By the way, I liked the "Homeland Security" photo well enough to look up the website & check it out further. Very well said! Also the one about the "Original Founding Fathers". Interesting, isn't it, Bruce, how that gets left out of the history books. :) I like the "Earth Turtle" image a lot, too.

Blessings on you and your journey into the Southwest, into Navajo and Hopi country. Take care, and keep in touch.

Yeah I like that word..think that I will use it....got through the border though, now I am suffering through disney land fireworks every night .... we are rv'ing at a place about four blocks...I will be glad to get to the desert and connect with eht elders, navajo people and some quieter times in El Paso...

Gee, Bruce, I'm glad you got turned back at the border, or you wouldn't have had all this come together this way. What an epiphany! (I invented a word for this kind of experience, "epiphonic", which the dictionary doesn't yet have (but should) :)
