Tricksters and Conquerors

Photo copyright wings, 2014; all rights reserved.

It is still Turquoise Tuesday at The NDN Silver Blog, and today it's tricksters in pursuit of gold and conquest (aren't they always?). We visit Nevada's Fox Mine (formerly the Cortez), and take a look at a beautiful stone that manifests in many different looks, and is relatively reasonably-priced.

Really just a programming note:

Today's edition of Turquoise Tuesday will likely be late, perhaps very late. The truck blew a hose just as Wings was pulling in yesterday afternoon, and the mechanic is already here to take a look (and probably tow it a mile up the road to his place). We have an appointment at 1:00 that's likely going to take a while. And my brain is, of course, not exactly operating at full function these days.

It's also the seventh anniversary of the day we lost the little girl above. It's why I hate this day; while it's associated with San G in everyone else's minds, to us, it's inextricably intertwined with the our first loss of animal together. I've written about BearGirl before; she was a beautiful spirit, and we both still miss her every day. 

If I can get today's Turquoise Tuesday post up before we have to leave about noon, I will; if not, it'll be this evening.

Feasting.

All new at The NDN Silver Blog, today it's an exploration of feasting, mediated by Wings's photography. It all occurs in the context of the Pueblo's big annual public feast days, today and tomorrow.

Much to be done today; I probably will not put in an appearance (or if I do, it will be late).

Little Bits of Sunlight

Now up at The NDN Silver Blog, it's little bits of sunlight.  Brass rings, but no "Brass Rings" here; these are weighted with symbolism of a different sort.

Song for a Sunburst Sky

Very late today. Among other issues, two chickens apparently lost to predators, in very odd and inexplicable circumstances.

So today's post at The NDN Silver Blog becomes tonight's post. There's very little sun left here at the moment just one tiny splotch of pink reflecting above the cloudbank in the western sky. But soon enough, the moment to which the post refers will be back with the blessing of a new day.

Shares of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, welcomed with thanks from both of us.

Buffalo, In Spirit and Stone

Today at The NDN Silver Blog, it's a feature combo of artist, medium, inspiration, and spirit being. There's a little in the post about its subject, which we've covered in earlier posts, but also information about the stone used, and of course, about Wings's cousin, the artist. 

Shares via the social-media buttons at the bottom of the post itself, and of Wings's main page, are very much needed and are welcomed with our thanks.

#TBT: Points and Blades

It's #Throwback Thursday at The NDN Silver Blog (well, for a few more hours yet), and today, it's points and blades. Specifically, it's handmade traditional knives. These are Wings's own work, and they're stunning, although only the one pictured here remains available; the others sold long ago.
