#TBT: Indian Corn

Photo copyright Aji, 2014; all rights reserved.

It's #ThrowbackThursday at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, it's a seasonal spirit (along with some memories, some educational info, and a little indignation, too). The featured piece is a stunner, and although not from my own tradition, it has a way of making me more than a little nostalgic for one of the good parts of my childhood.

Shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are welcomed with our thanks.

All New: Waters Flow

All new at The NDN Silver Blog, it's one of those perfect pieces by Wings, a piece where everything comes together flawlessly. I want it. 

But it's meant for someone else, so shares of the post itself might help it find the person for whom Spirit intends it. Shares of Wings's main page are welcomed, too, with our thanks.

Turquoise Blue-Bloods

It's Turquoise Tuesday at The NDN Silver Blog, and today, it's not precisely royalty, but it is the blue-bloods of the stone (even though they show up in blue, and green, and even white).

Shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are welcomed with our thanks.

A programming note:  He has used up the last of his silver creating a few new pieces in time for the holiday shopping season. They're amazing. We'll be bringing you images of those in the days to come.

#NotYourRedskin, #NotYourMascot, #NotYourstoWhitewashAway

Image credit:  Mother Jones Magazine

On a day when I find myself, once again, in the unenviable position of having my life, my very self, whitewashed out of existence, I also find myself about to do something completely out of character: Root for the Dallas Cowboys.

Yes, it's the Washington Racists at Cowboy Stadium tonight, and while I have no love for Jerry Jones or any part of his organization, for once I hope Tony Romo's got his head on straight tonight. I don't know how much of the game we'll be able to watch; it's next to impossible for us to tolerate the redface and the fake war chants and the tomahawk chops anymore. But we'll at least be checking in, if only to support the #BraidUp/AIM Central Texas and #EONM protestors outside and inside the stadium. I may hit Facebook and the Twitters occasionally, if I feel the need to say something, so shares and retweets would be appreciated. It'll be more of the same on Sunday, since Haskell and other groups are apparently busily helping to provide cover to the Kansas City Thiefs. [Yes, I know it's not correct pluralization. It's still their name in this household.]

And I'll just say for the record, right here, right now:  I am not going away. I will continue to write, to speak, to be who and what I am, every day. I've danced this dance my whole life, and I'm not about to stop because my existence is inconvenient.


Holiday Gifts: A New Weekly Feature Taking Wing

Today at The NDN Silver Blog, it's the launch of a new weekly feature series for the holidays. Yes, I know, but the creative process requires lead time, and like Wings, our other artisans will be busy filling last-minute special orders closer to the holidays themselves.

Today, it's one of my favorites, a new-ish piece from our friend Randy.  Take a look; this little guy is very modestly priced, and has his own unique character.  Shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are very much needed right now, and are welcomed with our thanks.

"In the Circle"

Photo copyright Aji, 2014; all rights reserved.

Today at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a very short feature, mostly a musing on one of Wings's simplest pieces, yet one carrying some of the greatest symbolism.

It's another hugely busy day, and we desperately need to make some sales, so shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, would be much appreciated.

Gifts: Animation.

Now posted at The NDN Silver Blog, it's the second installment in our new weekend miniseries on the gifts of life's journey.

I am swamped today already, so I'll just make our usual request for shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page. The bandwidth issue is fixed, and we really need to make some sales.

Thanks.
