      Your two cents is always worth at least a quarter, in my book.  Thanks for the complements.

      Ted;
      Enjoyed your account of travels to the Turtle Mounds. Your writing evokes imagery and a sense of location that is just like being there. Also great to hear about your work on photographing rock art.

      Red Horn Myth is an important part of the culture that existed with the mounds. Uses many allegorical names and associations with actual leaders. Some appear to be astronomical allegory from times when people focused on the position of astronomical "objects" more than hollywoood "stars".

      It is unfortunate that there are numerous examples of symbolism that have been labeled as apocryphal.  An unbiased look at these objects may reveal truths that would otherwise be lost after the conquest. Especially with a scientific and independent evaluation.

      My two cents.
