Here is another great Cherokee animal legend from Lowell Kirk’s online publication, Cherokee Myths and Legends!

The Uktena is a great snake with horns on its head and a blazing crest that looked a diamond on it’s forehead.  It is as large as a tree trunk and  has scales that glitter like sparks of fire. It has rings or spots of color along the whole length and is considered to be a great prize to catch.

It can only be wounded on the seventh spot from the head which is where the heart and life of the animal are located. The blazing diamond is called Ulunsut’hi which means transparent. If a brave wins the diamond, he is considered to be the greatest wonder worker because the light dazzles the hunter and causes him to run toward the snake.


Life with The Word and Bird Man  – Clyde Kessler

Age is relative. I have always wondered about people that think forty is ancient.  It  all depends on which side of the big 40 one is on.  Anyway, my husband and I would not be considered young by most people and we are starting to have a few memory problems.

Yesterday I mentioned a few memory problems that were bothering me.  Later I told him there was another age thing I wanted to mention but I forgot what it was.  He, of course, said you just proved your point!

Thank you for looking at paintings by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway
