Spirit-Hiking Sticks © Ken
Each stick is lovingly selected and cut from a living tree on private property,
it then goes through a process of peeling, drying, sanding, carved graphics which
depicts the sun and mountains (Mother Earth & Father Sky)
then stained and spar-varnished. Additionally, a compass, beads, adjustable lanyard,
feather, deer horn button, arrowhead, half-marble, and beaded leather tie are featured.
All are given loving attention to
detail and blessed with a prayer...
As long as I can remember I've searched for
adventure and discovery, only to find that the great answer
lay directly where my feet my take me; that the intrigue of wonder was indeed walking upon our good earth...
