» Share Your Art Guidelines

Even though we encourage members to share their art in this section, ideally we'd like to keep an "amateur" flavor to it.

If you are a novice flute maker (for example) and are looking for feedback on your first creations, or if you are an aspiring painter, poet, etc.. then this is the place.

However, if you are a professional who is selling their work anywhere, then in the interest of maintaining the no selling policy of this site (both in the letter and the spirit of the law) we ask that you do not showcase your work here, even if you are not actively making a sales pitch or linking to your website.

This will ensure that no one takes undue advantage of the open nature of this forum.

Some time ago I was asked to put up a sound sample of a flute I bought on Labor Day this year. I had a High Spirits key of G flute that I rarely
ever played. So I decided to sell it, which I did at the Tipton Powwow on Labor Day. The thing is Terry Frasier was selling flutes there that day, and
I found another key of G flute that I connected with and bought at that time. This is the flute I'm playing in this video:

I just want to add that I paid tribute to the seven directions at the end of the video. Please read what I posted with the video to understand how those
who came before us also honor these seven directions. I think everyone will find it of interest if you're not familiar with it.

Yes, Ginger smile.gif You remain an enigma to me, but one that I respect very much. I believe that was my favourite of your videos so far. I asked on your video post what flute it was but that is answered here. I think the Circle Mound is a very beautiful place with a sacred and powerful energy, and am grateful that you can play there with such a respectful heart and soul. Lovely, Ginger 🌹🌹🌻❤️🌻🌹🌹 smile.gif

Your connection with that flute, is readily seen in the video. Nice.

When I pay tribute to those who came before us, doing something like the seven directions comes almost naturally. I have a naturally formed
Medicine Wheel that I use on a regular basis in my horse pasture (formed by five trees), and I always pay tribute to the seven directions first
thing when I enter the Circle and again once I finish my meditations and prepare to leave. Paying respect to mother earth, God, and my
savior Christ Jesus.

Thank you so much for your kind words.

I don't know if this will explain how I view my way of finding faith, but the Bible says that each of us must find God in our own way. Mine is just very
different from the way of the conventional. The more I find out how the American Indians revered the Earth and everything on her, the more it seems
so right. They lived in harmony with nature and not separate from nature like most Americans do today. They believed in the Great Spirit/the
Creator, He whom we Christians call God. They believed He created everything. They seek God through nature--looking for His messages in what
He's created. I have found God and come to Him in this exact same fashion. God created the universe and we live in it. All I'm doing is trying to
find my rightful place in the universe by being in harmony with nature--being one with God's creation, and as such finding my place in
God's great plan... and through His Holy Son, Christ Jesus.

Not all will agree with this, but it's the way I see it. Since following this path, God has been guiding me--letting me serve Him in my own way and to
the best of my ability. It's not the conventional way, but it works for me. I hope I haven't offended anyone by sharing my views on faith and
Christianity. Every time I step into a forest, walk along a river bank, or beside a lake, I feel closer to God than anywhere else. It's what I believe
and who I am.

Ginger

That's one of the reasons why I bought that flute, Rick. It seemed to choose me the instant I played it smile.gif. Thanks for your kind words.

I love how you explained and presented your sharing of God and how you came to Him and praise Him - all done in and through nature and the Earth, it is a view, I also share. Thank you!
