Well, I couldn’t be more uptight about a matter that I have to keep private.  I hate these kinds of confrontations but it isn’t something I can avoid.  It isn’t anything about my artwork but it is quite serious.  Oh well, it will pass and I am looking forward to that day. 

Meanwhile I have two commissions I am working on in addition to every thing else. Yikes!  Better to be busy then not have enough to do but it sure is difficult to find the time. 

 I am very glad that I now have over 400 followers on Youtube!  Please check out my channel which is Kendall Kessler!  

I hope everyone had a great day and I need to get off the computer for a while. 

Clyde said when you get out of Computer Purgatory come watch a River Monsters episode with me.  His words, not mine!  Love River Monsters!

Let’s watch Jeremy Wade put his big toe into a piranha’s mouth to prove they are not ferocious!  If you have ever watched River Monsters, you know what I am talking about! 

LOL!

No offense to Jeremy!  I am a big fan of this great angler and biologist!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

So far I have kept my promise to stop ranting about my computer so I am on to another modern gadget that is extremely annoying.  I am talking about the remote.

We have a pile of remotes in the living room that I have no idea what they belong to.  I guess they are for old TVs or VCRs or whatever.  I wish one of us had thought about getting rid of them before they became antiques.

Recently we had to add another gadget to our TV to keep getting cable.  When we were done, we had two remotes.  One to turn it off and on and one to change channels and volume.  We didn’t think that was right so we called the company and went through a tricky process to get it down to one.  Whoopy!

Many of the buttons for my DVD remote do not work so when I need those buttons I have to borrow my sons remote.  Fortunately his DVD player is the same one we have in our bed room.

Last night after Clyde went and got his remote so we could watch our River Monsters episode he commented that maybe one day we will need a remote to get out of bed.

I honestly hope I do not live to see that day.

One of my favorite places on The Blue Ridge Parkway!

I really have flowers on my mind right now!

The Cherokee Legends of The Black Bear

The Cherokee Indians did not always inhabit the mountains of the North East.  Some historians claim they have only been here five hundred years after migrating from the upper Mid-West but their traditions, legends and myths date back for thousands of years.

The Cherokee, along with all the Northeastern tribes were comfortable living with the black bear. The southern Blue Ridge Mountains have many Cherokee myths concerning the black bear.  They have often seen the black bear as a spirit guide to their people and considered the white bear to be a special spirit.  A few are born with white fur. It was a significant part of their ceremonial or religious practices.

Joining The Black Bears

One tale is about a boy that would leave the Ani tsa gu hi’  tribe for a while and come back with significant amounts of hair on his body that was not previously there.  The tribe asked him what was going on and he said he was spending time with the black bears where there was much food.  He told his tribe they should all join the bears and live in peace with abundant food.

This tribe was part of the Cherokee tribe and they all decided to leave the Cherokees to live with the bears.  They told the others not to worry, that they would live forever with the bears.  There are Cherokees today that believe some of their people became black bears and their descendants are alive today.

I found this story on Cherokee Myths and Legends of The Black Bear online publication.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

While we were on vacation I had a great time watching River Monsters!  I loved to fish when I was a child so it was great to watch Jeremy Wade catch huge fish!  In one episode he talked about the fishing method called noodling.  The fisherman puts his hand in the fish’s mouth and pulls it out of the water.  Considering the types of fish he catches, it is a dangerous sport.

My mountain man laughed when I told him I had never heard of noodling.  He said his Dad was doing that when he was a kid.  I replied that I bet it is new to people like me that are part of the mainstream culture, not isolated mountain people.  He said that was true.  His people were so far up the holler the creek ran dry trying to get out.

Just joking!  My husband’s great-great uncle George Kessler was one of three founders of Ferrum College and Clyde Kessler is the most knowledgeable person I have ever known.  Don’t trust those mountain stereotypes!
