Saboteur

I drew the “Saboteur” based on the teachings of Keith MacPherson in a course called “Making Sense of Mindfulness” – https://www.keithmacpherson.ca 

The Saboteur for me is an entity that prevents me from creating when I want to. It is the fear-based ego-mind that stops me right in my tracks from moving forward with my ideas and inspirations to create. 

It has three heads with its own eyes which, for me, represents the past, present and future. Each time period, has its own way of creating tension in the way of regrets (past), fears (present) and anxieties (future). 

The middle eye in the body is like the evil eye of Sauron from J.R.R. Tolkien’s book “Lord of the Rings.” 

The thing about my Saboteur is that he is kind of whimsical and mystical and can be beaten at his own game as he does not have any arms or hands to fight back with. I can prevail and create. I can write more books, take more beautiful photographs and create images of artwork from India Ink drawings, abstract painting, computer design and digital art.

Sunflower Patch

Mikawoz Sunflower Patch

Sunflower Patch

I found this full sunflower patch just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. What was strange was that it was later in the summer season and the field should have been harvested but had not been for some reason.

According to the internet, “Sunflower harvesting has a long history as an American tradition and they have been part of man’s diet for centuries. Native Americans were harvesting sunflower seeds long before Europeans arrived. They boiled the heads to extract the oil and ate the seeds either raw or baked in breads and infusions were used medicinally. The seeds are a good source of calcium, phosphorus and potassium.”

Eagle Eyes

This is a photograph I took in the Interlake area of Manitoba, Canada. I would like to thank David Elliott Atwell for driving me around and letting me take such great photographs. Without him, these beautiful eagles would not be captured with their striking eyes, golden beaks and white heads.
