Café Crem

Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table


The days pass so quickly in the spring. May zooms by, and suddenly it’s summer. The kids and I are adjusting to a lazier schedule as I get the place ready for houseguests again.

The Medicine Wheel Ceremony went very well. It was a powerful event. I am just now starting to hear bits about what happened at each location. I was the Ambassador for the Tennessee site. It was very peaceful–just me, the kids and husband at a beautiful campsite between the mountains and a river.

I am working on an article about the ceremony at our campsite. We had timely visits by a woodpecker, butterflies and a fox. I am still trying to figure out what they all represent. I also found a snakeskin the day before the ceremony. I went to visit a lake near my home where I like to meditate, and there it was, right in my regular spot. I actually forgot about the snakeskin until after I got back from Tennessee, and had started a series of snakeskin print art. I’m getting those pieces ready right now to submit to the next art show.

I have to go clean the house now, but I will try to come back and visit soon. Looks like I have some catching up to do 🙂

  3. I have a skunk which passes each (well, almost…) night 1-2 m from my window… He didn’t rise his tail towards me yet…

  4. Hi Shelley, good to see you here again! I’m sure the snakeskin and your animal visitations were significant – if only to remind us that we share this world.
