video post vs. links

Sunday, February 07, 2010

On my last blog I added a YouTube link which would take you to a video. I was wondering how to post the actual video instead of the link. Can someone tell me how to do it?
Here is the link in case you missed it...

    I think when you go to post a blog, you click on Video blog and post the link to the video when it asks you to.

My 'little' friend

Friday, February 05, 2010

Awhile back a friend called to tell me this amazing young man would be speaking locally & that I needed to meet him. We went & got to meet this remarkable guy, Nick. Here is just a taste of him. We took pictures with him & have stayed in touch since. Someone recently emailed this.

It came at a time when I was really down & thought I could not get up. I looked up more of his videos & this one was so perfect. I saved it to my desktop so I can remind myself. This is exactly how he is in person. I know this will strengthen you as it did me. Of course I cried as I pulled myself up.

    I have seen another clip of this young man and am amazed at his resilience. A true motivator indeed.

When we start to feel "so hard done by"," it is always helps to see that others have it harder and yet still come out on top........

Thanks for sharing.

Old Oak Me...(I mean) Tree

Sunday, January 10, 2010

My friend shared this & I just had to pass it on...it is so like me.


Im getting old like the old oak tree I used to swing on as a child, my bones creek when the wind blows, I have slowed down no longer growing up but out, my limbs are faltering less leaves, and my wisdom are in the roots that reach deep into the earth. Now when a child gets on that swing and sings I get excited and my leaves sing in the wind of joy of new life
...by my friend Jiiniikwe



Also a reminder that we produce fruit, too just like that old oak tree

    THANKS..enjoyed that post!

I live amongst some very old (200 + ) trees and one had the old hoop swing put up by my ancestors. When the old trees finally come down, I greet those situations with great sadness. We keep planting more..so there will always be more tress maturing around us.

I can't thank you all for all the messages I've received regarding my dear friend. Here is a picture from her memorial. Below is a more clear picture. Thank you all for being so sensitive. I will lift you each up with a personal prayer for sharing your hearts with me.

Honoring DancingSong

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

My friend DancingSong had been living in Colorado & was moving back to California. I met her years ago, maybe 25 or so years ago. We were involved in NDN community events & powwow committees & all that. We lost touch about 10 years ago. We found each other over a year ago on Facebook. We had been corresponding & were planning on hooking up. The weekend she arrived in town we planned to meet at a powwow. She was so excited to get back home...she kept quoting Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz saying "There's no place like home". One day she said, "Maybe I need some ruby red slippers like her so I can get home sooner. She tapped her toes & tada...there she was. She flew in & the very next day her son went to visit her. A couple of hours later he walked into the sheriff's station saying he thought he killed his mother. His family is so devastated that they still haven't shared exactly what happened. I do know by newspaper accounts that she died from asphyxiation. My heart was so heavy for her family during these happy holidays. She also passed away on my deceased brother's birthday.
I will always have bittersweet memories on that day. Every time I see or hear of ruby red slippers, for sure I will remember her.
