“We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly perceive it to be –the mythologized epitome of a savage ruthless killer – which is, in reality, no more than a reflected image of ourself.”
……… Farley Mowat

‘To touch the earth is to move into harmony with nature’ ………..Oglala Sioux

When I am painting a title often shows up and I don’t question. I use it. This one came from a memory I have of my friend who is mother to a beautiful hybrid wolf Dhyren. She lavished affection and training on her wolf as he grew into his manhood. Dhyren is 99% wolf hybrid which means he is more wolf than dog. These animals take a lot of patience to coax them out of their wildness and, because she wanted him to have the best life possible she spent every day teaching to be with humans. And she always referred to the wolf as ‘my son.’ Wonderful animal.

call to the blood moon

All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man. The air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
……….Chief Seattle

Coyotes have many voices just like the raven. Coyotes howl, bark and make a yipping sound. When I lived on the mountain I interacted in some way with the coyotes on a daily basis. Often they would come quite close and they liked to follow me. I kept an eye to my dogs and assumed that they were just curious. They are indeed curious and tricksters just like the ravens.

We reached the old wolf in time to watch the fierce green fire dying in her eyes. There was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and the mountains. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch. I thought that because “fewer wolves, more deer” that no wolves would mean hunter’s paradise, but after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.

…….Aldo Leopold

Truly a profound teaching. I once was honored to be in the woods with a wild coyote as it died. It was deeply meaningful for me for I realized that we were one. The coyote and I spoke to each other with our eyes and spirit.

When the green hills are covered with talking wires and the wolves no longer sing, what good will the money you paid for our land be then?  …..Chief Seattle
