The Talking Stick is a method used by many Native American tribes. The stick let all members who wished to talk hold it while others had to wait for their turn. All members of the circle were valued, one could not talk about any person in a bad or negative way. The stick was passed from one individual to another until all who wanted to speak had done so in and orderly and respectful way. After session the stick was then passed back to an elder for safe keeping.

The Dream Catcher Legend Native Americans believe that a night is full of dreams, good and bad both. When the dream catcher is placed above where you sleep it catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, know their way through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams don’t. Bad dreams are caught in the webbing and disappears when the first daylight comes up. This protects you from bad dreams. There are many variations of legends and styles. Some are done with willow and some with hoops. Each one is unique.

Hi, most of you have never met me but if you live close by you most likely have. We love our dragonflies. You see them on our business cards and promo materials. I will do a little mini series, a post every morning about the magical little dragonfly using beautiful images both real and fantasy. One of the greatest pleasures every spring is to welcome them back and watch them dart through the air.
ps it's a real dragonfly on my art that stayed for the longest time.
