I don't know where you get your inspiration from each week but everyone is so very unique.......
The weekend for me starts now......

A great way to begin the weekend Sherry. I do so enjoy your renderings. The Downy Woodpecker photos were great. Their tails are fablous works of art as are your videos.

Dear Sue,
This week I celebrated Indian Summer, the Corn Maidens anf the Indian Pricess. I was very pleased to find "Corn dance Song" on the cd "Dance to the Drum" when I began to make our slide show. Kevin Lewis is our artist. This cd is a compliation of Native American songs. "Corn Dance Song" is from the Navajo/Cherokee tradition.
Glad you enjoyed this.
Thank you for your continued support.

Throughout the slideshow I felt how all people are united through birds, plants, trees, the moon, the sun and all of creation--and what a beautiful thing that is. . .Thank you for reminding me of this. Hugs~carol

Now that was interesting choice of music. Perfect choice for this week theme.

Very appropriate for this time of year. I enjoyed your images to the rhythm of the Corn Dance.
Love and Light

Dear Carol,
Thank you for connecting to the simple message that we are connected and we are one.
I think it is important to celebrate each day, each species and each human who walks on this good red road.
All my relations,

Dear Cheryl,
I try to be open to Mother Earth each week. She sends so many different and interesting creatures to my backyard.
I am inspired by the wind and the moon and friends like you.
Thank you!

Dear Lisa,
I am very lucky to have two pairs of Downy and two pairs of Hairy Woodpeckers that come to the feeders. A pair of Red-bellies call the large nut feeder their feeder. I love having the woodpeckers about. I too think the tail feathers are fantastic.
Thanks Lisa for your continued support.
Life is fun when I cans hare the comings and goings in the backyard.
All my relations,

Dear Marmee,
I do not know the meaning of the words. I think they are Navajo. I will do some more research and see what I learn. I think the simple song is so very lovely. I am transported to a time and place very far removed from 2008 and my city.
Thank you.
I enjoyed thinking about this week's slide show and taking my photographs. Adding some pictures of some decorative items in my house seemed to work. The opening scene is of a painted tile from Sante Fe New Mexico.
Glad you enjoyed this one.
Alll my relations,

marmee said...

the tile is beautiful. i am told by my paternal grandmother i have cherokee in my bloodline. she has passed so i don't have much information. but i have always loved indian culture.

Mary said...

Your slide shows continue to delight me - your images, accompanied with music, are the best in blogland.

Wow, Sherry.

You rock.

Q said...

Dear Marmee,
I love questions! I do not always have an answer but I enjoy the challange of finding out. I still have not learned the meaning of the words. Theya re lovely and I hope they encourage everyone to be respectful of the earth and of each other. All the ways are to be honored.
Nice to know you have a connection to the First Nations of the Americas!
All my relations,

Dear Cathy,
Thank you for picking the theme up this past week. I do try to have one.
I do a word each day too. I look for my word. Sometimes I see my word in the clouds or in the shadows. Sometimes I hear my word whispered in the leaves or whistled in the wind.
My word today is gratutude!
Thank you for being my friend.
Attitude of gratitude,
