Stephen Sindoni shares a Native American story about the life of Chief Dan George entitled" Words of Wisdom." Did you know that there are 600 Indian Reservations in Canada? And you probably didn't...

The Beauty of the Trees

The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky,
The rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning,
the dewdrop on the flower, speaks to me.
The strength of the fire, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away, they speak to me
And my heart soars.

Ed,

These were really interesting. I loved the poem. The prayer song reminds me of a performace I saw in Cherokee several years ago.

I am not sure what they mean on the last one. Chemtrails? They might mean " Contrails ".

James, Chemtrails are Not Contrails. Something is being sprayed in the lower atmosphere by aircraft. Look for yourself you can see the difference, a contrail dissapates after time a chemtrail spreads. After multiple trails they merge blanketing the skies. Check it out on the internet. Most people don't believe in chemtrails. I didn't at first until I started paying closer attention. Something is going on, we get very few Dark Blue Skies anymore. This stuff wasn't around 10-15 years ago, after cold fronts we had several days with clear Dark Blue Skies. Now were lucky to have two in a row until the massive spraying takes place. Check it out for yourself and watch! I watch the alot something is going on. Larry

Larry,

This is new to me. Contrails however can spread. They can turn to cirrostratus or stratus type clouds over time instead of dissipating. But I cannot say chemtrails don't exist. I just have not heard of them. I have been a fan of aircraft since I was a child and have always read lots about them. I have always dreamed of getting my pilots certificate. But I wonder what would cause chemtrails. A fuel additive maybe?

Dark blue skies also often associate with dark skies at night. That too has dissappeared from many areas. I would now have to use deep sky filters to see many deep-sky objects using my telescopes when I would have found easy without the filters only 15 years ago. On some faint stuff filters aren't enough. Light pollution is usually the culprit here but anything that would cloud the sky would also be a factor and would scatter light pollution even worse.

I will look chemtrails up.
