Story Stone is a Native American artifact that was used to tell stories.
It is believed that it was a story that warned against selfishness,
especially as it relates to food and the taking of life.
The stone is from the Reeves Road site in Willoughby, Ohio which is now under condos.
I took the picture at a museum and cut it out,
then put it on a Fractal background created with Ultra Fractal..
The day I completed it, I went to some friends for dinner and syncronistically
found out that one of our friend's brothers found it and later donated it.
Salamanders are wonderful creatures that live in the forest floor.
The create burrows on the forest floor in damp soil away from direct sunlight.
Spotted Salamanders are one of the most common types.
Many varieties of Salamanders are endangered.
Salamanders migrate to vernal (spring) pools to mate and lay their eggs.
They then return to the woodlands where they live.
The eggs develop in the pool and, by the time the pool dries up,
the young emerge and seek out homes within a few hundred feet of the vernal pool.
Some Salamanders can live to be twenty years old!
I photographed this Salamander in Allegany State Park, New York.
Wakan or Wakan Tanka is the name the Lakota Indians
use to indicate the sSpirit essence of all things.
Each creature and each object has its own Wakan,
a pure spirit without limitations of space or time.
This is my good friend Bailey.
He is a Black Lab and German Pointer mix.
Sometimes he looks out a window in a dreamy sort of way.
Wow, something cosmic must be happening in his mind...

There is an old story about Grandmother weaving creation.
The old black dog keeps coming along and unraveling the fabric.
Looks like the space-time continuum has a thin place along this trail...

the human race is about to enter into our next evolutionary state:
from homo-homo-sapiens to become Homo-Luminous.
We will become aware that we are beings of Light (Consciousness)...
