The Sleeping Giant. Taken in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, can't you just imagine waking up to this beauty every morning?
The Ojibway story tells us that Nanabijou [link] protected the silver treasure from the white man by laying down upon it and turning to stone. As far as I am aware, no mine has ever been successful.
But there is more to this than a legend. For anyone who know about the native people of Canada, you will know that it is a story of deceit and disgrace. The deceit of our government and in the process the disgracing of a people.
And this disgrace continues with broken and unfulfilled agreements. It continues with a people who continue to live in poverty, in one of the most prosperous nations of the world. It continues because Canada doe snot have the will and fortitude to recognize its historical responsibility. A people who are still Between Worlds.
Now these of course are just my thoughts, my "take" on the history. But the picture speaks to me of these things, of a people, sitting on the edge, waiting for their dawn, waiting to take their rightful place in this world of opportunity.
Harvest is almost finished here, about 2 weeks early. But it has not been so great down south where most of the corn crop has failed. Farmers have always lived by the weather, but it is still difficult so see the hardship.
