Vision Statement

This is the story of Creation and the fourth in the Sahdow Bear series. In the Navajo tradition, Grandmother Spider casts her web into the blackness of space. The dew drops on the web become the stars and planets in the Universe. It is the dance of life from our origins to our infinite creation. The cycle is completed only to begin again, a never-ending sacred spiral. We are all made of star material and therefore we are all connected. From the vastness of the universe to the realm of quantum physics, we exist and are a part of the whole. We are One!
