Manitoba Bison

This is a photograph I took of the master bison of the herd. He was definitely the largest and the most dominant. He led the other bison on a rampage towards me as they thought I had food for them. 

This image reminds me of the University of Manitoba Bison symbol and logo. Even though I am alma mater to several Universities and Colleges across Canada, my biggest connection is as alumna to the University of Manitoba. 

I love this bison because he is majestic, strong and perfect.

Brown Eyes

This is a photograph of a red fox with beautiful brown eyes and gorgeous red fur coat. I took the photo in the Interlake area which is north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He was not seemingly too scared of us. He walked along and even opened his mouth which I think is interesting and I wonder why. I know that cats open their mouths off to use their sense of smell – Jacobson’s organ. 

According to National Geographic, the Vulpes Vulpes or “Red foxes are solitary hunters who feed on rodents, rabbits, birds, and other small game—but their diet can be as flexible as their home habitat. Foxes will eat fruit and vegetables, fish, frogs, and even worms. If living among humans, foxes will opportunistically dine on garbage and pet food.”

Growth After

I was reading a book or listening to an audiobook. I forget now but the purpose of the drawing is to indicate that when we grow, we develop our minds and the fruits or in this case, flowers or a garden, begin to grow. It can be growth mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually. 

I have put a person meditating and coming to some realizations and therefore is producing amazing thought patterns which manifest in reality. She is vibrant and beautiful. I have included a rainbow of colours to illustrate the fullness of her/our abilities.

Shedding Time

This is a younger small big horn sheep who is shedding his winter coat and so it looks kind of ragged. Tourists often mistake this for a sheep being sick or undernourished but this is part of its yearly pattern. Everything is cyclical.

Bamboo Fence

Bamboo Fence – Photography & Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz

Bamboo Fence

I took this photograph because I liked the way the fence was woven with rope and attached big pieces of bamboo. It was taken in Freeport, Bahamas at one of the local establishments. 

I put a filter on it to make it look more like a painting. I like the various green and beige levels of transition from light to dark.

Chimpanzee

Chimpanzee – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Chimpanzee

I took this photograph of this chimpanzee sauntering along in nature and captured him framed with beautiful pink flowers around him. It was taken at the Honolulu Zoo in Waikiki, Hawaii. 

According to the Honolulu Zoo Website, an interesting fact is that “Chimpanzees and bonobos are equally humanity’s closest living relatives. As such, they are among the largest-brained, and most intelligent of primates.” 

Also, “The Common chimpanzee occupies a broad range compared to the bonobo and can be found in 21 African countries. They are found north of the River Congo in humid closed-canopy forests, montane forest (up to 6,500 ft.), seasonally dry forests and savanna-woodlands.”

Itty Bitty Footprints

Itty Bitty Footprints – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Itty Bitty Footprints

This is a photograph of sand with itty bitty footprints made either by birds or insects. It was take at Prince Edward Island National Park. There is a small cricket or grasshopper in the lower quadrant of the photo, so maybe it is to be credited with the itty bitty footprints. I like the composition of sand, grass, footprints and the rock. 

According to Wikipedia, “Situated along the island’s north shore, fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the park measures approximately 60 km in length and ranges from several hundred metres to several kilometres in width.”

Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, Mirror – Photography & Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz

Mirror, Mirror

Back when concerts were a “thing,” we saw Adam Lambert playing with the original members of Queen, minus Freddy Merury on June 21, 2014 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at the downtown arena called Bell MTS Place. 

It was a spectacular night with Brian May doing an incredible guitar solo and also Roger Taylor going head to head with his son, Rufus Taylor, AKA Tiger, in a drum battle. 

It was fantastic and very memorable. I have called it “Mirror, Mirror” to reflect the humongous screen in the middle of the stage. 

I have also put a special effect so that it looks as if it is a poster capturing the moment in time.s

Billy Goat Gruff

Billy Goat Gruff – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Billy Goat Gruff

This photography of this little guy reminds me of the little wee Billy Goat Gruff Folktale. 

Here is only the first part of “Three Billy Goats Gruff.” 

Once upon a time there were three billy goats, who were to go up to the hillside to make themselves fat, and the name of all three was “Gruff.” 

On the way up was a bridge over a cascading stream they had to cross; and under the bridge lived a great ugly troll , with eyes as big as saucers, and a nose as long as a poker. 

So first of all came the youngest Billy Goat Gruff to cross the bridge. 

“Trip, trap, trip, trap! ” went the bridge. 

“Who’s that tripping over my bridge?” roared the troll. 

“Oh, it is only I, the tiniest Billy Goat Gruff , and I’m going up to the hillside to make myself fat,” said the billy goat, with such a small voice. 

Hope you enjoyed this part. I was surprised how graphic and violent the folktale really is but I guess it was a sign of the times when it was first created way back when.

Life as a Search Engine – Book Review

The Universe is Your Search Engine – Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book: “The Universe is Your Search Engine: A User’s Guide to the Science of Attraction, Anita M. Scott, Balboa Press, 2020

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available: June 23, 2020

I am going to cut to the chase. It is quite simply a very good book and collates decades of research on my part. I have been on a spiritual journey since I was a teenager. This explains in simple terms how the world operates from a spiritual and scientific model. It incorporates Quantum Physics which makes a lot of sense in this technologically advanced world we are living in.

It quite simply compares life to being a Search Engine where you ask for and receive what you have asked for. As life is made up of energy which is in constant motion, what you give attention to and desire, will come to you. If you are concerned about getting cancer, you will, in fact, experience that experience. If, on the other hand, you envelope good health, that is what you get. In the same way you put key words into a search engine on the Internet and within split seconds, you get your results, the Universe works and operates in a similar method.

I like what the author, Anita M. Scott, has done with providing key points in each chapter. She provides very good exercises towards the back of each chapter and provides links to her website for internal questions with a password. Towards, the end of the book, she reinforces the accumulated amount of information you have learned along with the exercises that you can print off.

I really feel this book is very good and will save you tons of time in research. I do feel as if she has benefitted from spiritual thought leaders like Esther Hicks who channels Abraham, people like Mike Dooley of the Secret and Thoughts Become Things. In fact, some of her information goes way back to include “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace D. Wattles and others of that time. Most recently, Gregg Braden’s work comes to mind on a scientifically-based way. 

It is also added to with recent developments in Quantum Physics research. I would have appreciated a little bit more in-depth information on advances in Quantum Physics as I think we are smart enough to incorporate it in our minds and have found it explained more in other spiritual books I have read. We are capable beings and can handle it.

I agree with most concepts which Anita M. Scott provides but not all. Some, based on my own experience, I have to question but in the overall scheme of things, they are minor discrepancies.

It is an excellent book and for that reason, I give it a 4.5 out of 5 and highly recommend it. It is a game-changer if you let it be.
