White Feather

white-feather

Steely determination. Implacable dignity.

And a refusal to be homogenized, defined or commodified by the forces of a passing moment in history regardless of its seeming might.

True to herself.

Beauty in strength.

Still here.

Watchful

watchful

Just watchful. Relaxed. Alert.

And ready. Definitely ready.

But it may not be what you think. This is a modern man at a 21st century powwow, thoroughly living in the now world, and at the same time standing in oneness with his ancestors.

Who also lived in their now world.

Standing as someone who refuses to be co-opted by the current madness.

Not trendy, though occasionally trending.

Knowing deeply who he is, a two legged creature among the four leggeds, the sky beings, those who fly and those who crawl or swim, the star beings, and the tall ones, those whose lives are measured in millennia, and those whose lives flash like a spark before they’re gone.

Relaxed. Alert.

Alive.

The Turban

Turban

A Cherokee type of headwear, picking up on some exotic imports from the far east via a visit to the English king in 18th century London. Lots of different styles according to clan and individual taste, they were all the rage for the well dressed Cherokee man for a good hundred years, give or take.

So back then it wasn’t the guys wearing turbans that were the terrorists, it was the guys pouring out of the tall ships with the funny three cornered hats and foreign religious ideas that were running amok tearing up the joint and generally making everybody’s life miserable.

Funny how things change.

But then, sooner or later, they always do.
