From the Heart and Inspiration

Painted Mare-War Pony, Series “Shagbark Hickory”
The prayer below is embedded under the painted mare image. Glimpses of the prayer are seen. The powers needed to restore the status of our planet have left me with a heavy heart. The work it will take and good strong hands with prayers to see the importance of what we have and for the next generations to come. Just this feat is one we should all paint up for and be willing to head into battle.
The Crow is here to remind us that order needs to be restored. The Pony all painted up, red ring around the eye is for good vision. The three lines on the lower next are for the number of battles rider and pony have been together. And the rain and clouds are symbol of water clear and clean for our survival. The shaggy bark hickory leaves and nuts are to symbols the need for clean air.   Part of this series is a wake-up call to state our basic needs are not being met but instead are being stripped from us by greed.

Earth Prayer
"Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you -- the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings of the air,
and all green things that live.
"You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road and road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things."
Black Elk: Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, 1863-1950

With good discussion Yesterday in my Book Club full of Artists we here poses a question by one of our members.  Why do we create what we create...or to some effect like that.  
One of the oldest questions for all human's why do we create?  

I just wanted to share the video and feel this....I'm one of those that creates from this heart section.  Which if you create long enough I think we all get this point.  

Let it come from the heart
