Tornado Spirit and Cane Painting


Weather. I've been reading about Native Americans living on the Plains and 

Tornadoes. It take a little time to begin to understand the nuances of NA relationships

with weather, land, sky, earth etc. It's different from our own. We try to

fix situations where many times seeking harmony or balance may be

more effective. Relationships are important.


Then there's this cane thing. I have Parkinsons and must use a cane (I'm fortunate

to still be walking). I've noticed how the cane changes brief relationships with people I meet.

I keep canes stashed in rooms and in my car. Bob just finished sanding a wooden cane

for me to paint.

I'll post photos of the cane as it's painted and varnished. I hope it gives folks something 

to focus on, something happy. Getting old can a bitch but is still better than not being.
