Soooo – I think, it is time for a little update as to what I am up to the days.
Well, busy for sure. Now in late October whenever the weather is halfway decent Peter and me are working hard – getting winter wood ready. Recent storms have brought down some huuuuge Maples, that we cut and carry out of the bush, section by section…..
Then there are a couple of craft shows coming up and while it is raining Cats, Dogs and Howler Monkeys – or rather Chipmunks, Weasels and caterwauling Catamounts we are making jewellery, lots of little things, that are fit for small budgets. Many of them are inspired by the recent trip to Bon Echo and Algonquin Park:

I am also making a few nice Medicine Pieces.
Like this Rattle for example:
here is another view
While sitting on working on pieces like this, I again think back on the “Vision-Teachings I received at Bon Echo and I yet again find myself drawing the pictographs seen on the face of the rocks = or their counterparts shimmering in the water onto the leather of my Medicine items.
The sonorous voice of a long-time enspirited Medicine Person reaches from the beyond into my ear – or rather my soul:
“They call it Bon Echo.
But not for the voices reflecting back from the rock walls.
The bon echo is the one coming of the Medicine Spirits as they dance in the Water and teach the People!”
I reflect about these reflections……..
Bon Echo indeed!
