|...Guess Who ...|
Moiya sent me this picture with a guess who.
I had to study the picture and could get the woman with the Beehive hairdo and after that I could work my way backwards. We tested out the picture with Alex who could see Uncle Greg for some reason and then he went on to say, "Wyona looks a bit like my grandmother. I would say she looks like a bird and my grandma looks like a chipmunk."
"Really? How do you mean," said his mom.
"Well, my grandmother lives in the wood. She is surrounded by nuts and acorns and trees, so I think of her as a chipmunk. But Wyona -- she lives in a huge opulent house, surrounded by space, flying everywhere -- she is like a bird."
So here I am, living on the west part of the west coast, sharing the land with the Strait and Coast Salish, and reading their legends. Alex must do the same thing: Arta = chipmunk; Wyona = bird.
Just love it. Thanks for the pic, Moiya.
