It seems the harder I work on promoting my artwork the less I get done.  There were two promo things I was going to do today and neither one of them is done.  Oh well, I never quit so I will be at it again tomorrow.  I am enjoying my new series and am especially pleased with my latest one that I added to Suggestions on my portfolio.  Please check out this vibrant series that I am creating out of what I see in the paint as I combine colors and react to their contrast and texture!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

The other day I asked my husband to call a government agency on behalf of our son.  I was very busy and decided to delegate a little.  He was at work and thought he could try to straighten something out on a break.

He got an actual human on the phone after only a few minutes wait and then was told the problem could be easily fixed but he was not authorized to communicate with the agency.  I forgot that I was listed as the contact person.  My husband was informed that it was another member of the family but they couldn’t tell him the name.

 

I think after all these years my husband knows my name!  LOL

Blue Ridge Parkway Way Sirens

 

The Lorelei live in the pools of Ashville, NC and here is the Native America legend regarding their existence! They are said to live in pools of rapidly flowing water.

The Lorelei are sirens that appear to travelers that stop for a drink in the heat of the day.  They appear to be beautiful women.  It is said that soft music can be heard blending in with the sounds of the water.  Travelers see a beautiful woman beckoning to them.  When the traveler reaches out their hand to touch the lovely image, they are drawn into the water by cold slimy hands. A skull appears, a loud laugh, and then silence.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have said before, I think my husband is very good-looking. He was when we were young and he still is now.  He doesn’t share that opinion and is always making jokes about his appearance.

The latest one is that the mirrors have 911 on speed dial and they hit it whenever he looks at his reflection.  The cops are really getting tired of answering all the calls.

Just three more Days until the next Blue Ridge Discovery Center Event!

For among the finches of Daphne Major, natural selection is neither rare nor slow: it is taking place by the hour, and we can watch. In this dramatic story of groundbreaking scientific research, Jonathan Weiner follows these scientists as they watch Darwin’s finches and come up with a new understanding of life itself. The Beak of the Finch is an elegantly written and compelling masterpiece of theory and explication in the tradition of Stephen Jay Gould.

I am still finding great Blue Ridge myths and legends of the Cherokee people!   Such wonderful, magical stories!  I was pleased that my husband was not familiar with the one I posted yesterday about the chickadee!  I actually taught The Bird Man something! 

 

 

The Origin of Game and Corn

Long ago shortly after the world was made there lived a hunter and his family on Looking Glass Mountain in North Carolina.  The Blue Ridge Parkway can be seen from Looking Glass Rock.  They had one son named Good boy. His brother came out of the water where the first boy played.  They kept him and named him Wild Boy.  They knew he had magic powers.  The father always brought home much game for the family.  They always had enough to eat.

One day Wild Boy transformed himself into a puff of bird down on the father’s shoulder  and followed him to a rock.  The father moved the rock and  deer came out and he killed one to bring home.

The next day the boys went to the rock and got game but forgot to put the rock back.  The father punished them and told them now they would have to hunt for game.

The hungry boys went home and asked their mother for something to eat and she went to the storeroom for corn.  The boys watched her rub her belly to fill a pot with corn and rub her legs to fill one with beans.

They decided she was a witch and she told them that when she died they were to clear the land around the home and they would always have corn.  They didn’t follow her instructions carefully so that is why corn does not grow in all parts of the world.

I found this story on the online publication, Native Languages of the Americas: Tsalagi/Cherokee Legends, Myths, and Stories

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I mentioned before my husband is not able to eat many things most people have no problem with.  The tomato  is one of them but he can eat a small portion if it is cooked such as in spaghetti sauce.  I think I am becoming somewhat sensitive to tomatoes and now after spaghetti I feel like I am going to pop!

I told Clyde we needed to go on a Pasta Buster walk and he said that sounds like a rock song.  “Get outside and bust that pasta before they have to roll you out the door!”  Get outside and bust that pasta!  You know you don’t need anymore!

I know the lyrics aren’t much so far but maybe we will come up with more the next spaghetti night.
