A new year and an old year.

As my mind wanders back over the last year,i smile and remember all the experiences i have been fortunate to have..i remember the proud bucks in the fields in the summer,The feeling of being soaked in the early spring rains..Every year something new pops into my head,something to make,something to share,something i can pass on to others..This years unusual heavy snows has been quiet fun,zeus was in his glory,and i learnt snow,snow became my teacher,but just like an old year the snow has quickly passed..i seem to have my clothing sorted out now,and found wool to be the best answer,my capote is the best thing i have made,this combined with my deer pelt is a union in harmony...i find each years lessons much easier to understand,im learning the song of the universe,it sings quietly within me,and to understand it fully will take more years to come...My one thing that plays on my mind is that i may be seen as some kind of american native wanna be,but i feel that bushcraft and spirit should be shown together.My respect for other cultures and thier crafts is shown in my crafts,but i do not claim to be anything else than me....
My main aim is make my teachings entertaining and enjoyable,i think this is the best way to teach..it pleases me much when people say they have tried out things that ive shown,not because they have done it,but because they are out in the bush,and not watching a tv..
So what will a new year bring?I dont really plan ahead or make a schedule,i live the moment,and wait for a passing deer,or a guide to inspire me...
my thoughts go out to all my friends i talk to or who comment on my videos etc,i know without these people there would be no wolf in bushcraft...I have had thoughts on stopping making videos and blogging,but i think of my subscribers etc,and i feel maybe it would be a selfish act..perhaps i may pad off silently one day into the woods and walk my path with my wolf brother zeus,just me and him,sharing the moment,feeling the heart beat of mother earth in our hearts,as we have done since a time that is ageless..But not just yet..i still hear the calling,the calling which is eager to learn,eager to share,eager to hear the song.....

I wish everyone who reads my blog a happy new year,,remember to want for nothing and you will recieve much,to embrace the world as a child sometimes,To treat everything you see as if youve never seen it before...do this and each day will be a gift,a treasure waiting for you have..open your heart and recieve it,its your gift you are self...

Most excellent bit of writing! I hope that you know how much I have learned from your tutorials. We really do appreciate them and the work that you put into your craft. When the time is right we will all understand but I rejoice in the fact that its not yet. Much to learn yet and myself and many others look to you when certain lessons can not be self taught or a hick up in the road leaves us stumped. I appreciate all of it.
I hope that the New Year brings you and Zeus great new adventures!
All the Best,
Leigh

And a HAPPY NEW YEAR to all. We've been hearing about the strange winter weather on your side of the pond. You seem to be dealing well with it. About an inch of new dry powder on the ground here at my place this morning. Now I know what my dogs have been so interested in under my hay stack. House cat! I don't know if it is sleeping under there or hunting mice. I'll leave it be so long as it leaves my birds alone. I have no objection to it thinning out the mouse population, but it better stay on its toes when the dogs are out there. :)

i just found your website and id like to say you are an inspiration to what life is, for many years ive been unhappy and never realy followed my heart, how ever on the sunset of jan 1st 2011 something changed after watching the sunset, i feal like a different person i feal alive, heart felt thougts and visions are fooding in and something that keeps repeating itself is something ive allways felt, ive allways felt i should be liveing with the land , this year im planing on putting that into motioan maybe not to start my new start but to start learning for it ,i have no tie downs or anything to hold me back, the only thing i am worried about is provideing for my 3 dogs of course i plan on trying to sell some cratfs etc but i will have to make sure i have a soilid plan to keep them feed , im so glad i found your website ,

all the best in this new year
