If the Dragonfly can do it…Why can’t I?

Dragonfly Dragonfly

A Dragonfly, if one were to really look at it- with critical eye-,
does not look as if it were made to fly

With a body, some would say is much too long and

I am a huge fan of animal totems. Ask my family members, our house is filled with them. I have been known to almost drive off the road as I try to catch a glimpse of birds or other creatures, I am sure are bringing me some message or meaning.

River of the Sun:
 The Silent Eye workshop for Spring 2015
Dates:  Weekend of 24-26 April, 2015.  Location:  The lovely Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow, Derbyshire Dales.
 
Egypt 1290 BCE
It is three generations since Egypt was torn apart by the rule of the enigmatic Pharaoh Akhenaten, who eviscerated the might of the ancient priesthood and moved the centre of political and religious power 250 miles North from Thebes to the new city of Armana on the Nile banks.
The rulers of the 19th Dynasty are determined to reverse the damage done by the heretic Pharaoh.  Seti I begins to restore Egypt’s military might to face a changed world.  This ruthless outward focus is a vivid contrast to Akhenaten’s peaceful but materially damaging reign.
Akhenaten is long dead, but what of his mystic religion?  Is nothing left of his radical teaching, his doomed attempt to replace the ancient religions of the once-noble priesthood…

Sokotei …. fairing well!!!


It Is What It Is

~~April 25, 2014~~ 

Who is Sokotei?

Airlift of Cherie’s Baby, Sokotei

When Cherie of the First Ladies family in Samburu national reserve died, the Kenya Wildlife Service, Save the Elephants, Nasuulu conservancy and both Samburu and Buffalo Springs County councils all rallied to the assistance of the calf.

Although only 5 months old, Sokotei is remarkably strong. When he tried to leave his mother’s body in the night the monitoring team attempted to catch him. As they were chasing through thick salvadora (Sokotei) bush, knowing that lions were in the area, a huge rainstorm hit.

The following morning the team managed to find Sokotei again, and after escaping the attentions of several aggressive bull elephants, succeeded in rescuing Sokotei.It was a…
