Nothing….and I mean nothing, nada….gets past a guard cat. Kujo here is trying to look casual as cats like to do. He is not going to bounce around like a dog unless there is reason and then Kujo will not be bouncing but, rather moving decisively.

Raven is said to be the creator of the world in Native American lore. Raven steals the sun and the moon from their caretakers, flies through the smoke hole in the longhouse and brings light to the world. And when he flew through the smoke hole, he became black.
The white raven is very rare and is seen on the same islands in British Columbia as is the kermode or spirit bear.

There is the world of the flesh.
And there is the Spirit World.
When the flesh is gone,
The Spirit forever remains.
Their voices speak to those who know how to listen.
Wisdom is born in the heart, and then spoken.

How Wolves Change Rivers

This one is a miracle.

THE BeZINE

Thanks to Gayle Walters Rose (Bodhirose) for sharing this with us for Wilderness Week.

“Wolves will travel to drink from a river. But could the presence of wolves lead a river to change its behavior?

George Monbiot: For more wonder, rewild the world In his TED Talk, George Monbiot poetically explains how reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone National Park after a 70-year absence set off a “trophic cascade” that altered the movement of deer, sent trees soaring to new heights, attracted scores of new animals to the area (think: beavers, rabbits, bears, bald eagles and more), and stabilized the banks of rivers making them less susceptible to erosion. Above, see that story set to music — and howls — by SustainableMan.org, who took the audio track from the talk and laid it over beautiful nature footage. It’s a glorious glimpse of how deeply the natural world is interconnected.
