Another of my favorite gicleé prints titled “A Little Patience”.  Turtles are the oldest symbol for Mother Earth in Native American culture. I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. Patience is not just about waiting for something… it is about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.

Turtle travels his own path in his own time. Turtle also represent security, solid grounding, and support. Slow, steady, strong, wise with age, protective, and unshakeable, Turtle appears the very model of settled universal order. No wonder Thunder and Breezy’s Mother calls her family her “Little Turtle Clan”. Turtle travels close to the earth, intimately connected with the currents of Mother Nature’s energy. Moving slowly means it has all the time to appreciate all her creations. We can follow this example, when we take the time that is always available, when we move more slowly along our own paths and enjoy the journey. We can learn to ground ourselves in the nurturing and protective energy of the earth and to flow with its energies at a pace that ensures what we focus on can be achieved.

Thunder Cheii and Breezy Summer reside in Northern New Mexico with their family.  They are also being taught their old traditional Native American ways that Mother Earth is governed by a set of principles, laws and values. I have a great respect for the families that I work with, trying to keep life in balance with the modern ways.
