When I was a child my uncles took me along duck hunting on the back of
the turtle(inspiration peak). I was about 12 and had no gun and so
would run ahead and scare the game away so they would not be shot too.
I came upon a deer and together we played in the woods. After a few
minutes my uncles came walking and when a few hundred feet away they
stopped and watched as I played with this new friend...When they
started to walk again the deer looked up and so i put my arms around
its neck to try to hold him and calm him as they walked closer.But he
pulled his head and bolted away..My uncle would go on to be a
vetranarian and professor at the U.ofM. He always was amazed at this
thing i had with animals and tested me often,,,I had to go tie up the
meanist dogs before he could even get out of the truck in many farmers
yards...(and people though he had a way with animals?!)
So here on the back of this great turtle of the mediwiwn I played with
the great spirt. I return there often and have not found him
reciently. May be he will be there this spring when I return. I have a
few mushrooms to share with him. I will bring along a dream catcher
So too,,,a bunch of years ago,,,I stumbled into the Gurichief
Society,,,seames they think a few of us have this gift,,,and if you
are at the right place you can catch these dreams and vision.
Thanks for this new insight,,,dream catchers,,,now I know what those
spider-web things i have seen often, are about.
ps who,s that other guy from up near leach lake?Does he know about the
deeper water and the sweet water sea?
