Look at the faces of my people.
You will find expressions of love and despair,
hope and joy, sadness and desire, and all the
human feelings that live in the hearts of people
of all colours. Yet, the heart never knows the
colour of the skin.

Have I Left the Eagle to Soar in Freedom
The time will soon be here when my grandchild
will long for the cry of a loon,
the flash of a salmon,
the whisper of spruce needles,
or the screech of an eagle.
But he will not make friends
with any of these creatures
and when his heart aches with longing
he will curse me.
Have I done all to keep the air fresh?
Have I cared enough about the water?
Have I left the eagle to soar in freedom?
Have I done everything I could to earn
my grandchild's fondness?

Most of the pages on this site are graphics intensive and/or have full length wavs which take time to download. Also, I have used a variety of fonts, therefore if the page does not look quite right, it would be because my fonts are different then the ones installed on your computer.
This site has been developed for your entertainment only, and I do not get any financial gain from any of the music or art work. As my site receives thousands of hits a week, perhaps after seeing some of the artwork or hearing the music, you will help support the artists and musicians.
This page is dedicated to poems, songs, quotes, and short stories that when I read them, I feel good. They come from a collection of several hundred that I have been saving or have been given over the past many years. If I have the name of the author, I will post it, however in most cases I do not. If anyone sees a graphic, quote or music file on my page that you prefer I not use, please inform me and I will take it off immediately. My goal is to bring a little peace into your life, not to take responsibility for something I did not create. If you borrow anything from my site, all I ask is a link back to "Native Inspiration For the Soul".
Here are a couple of logos if you care to
use one for the link to:
The songs I have chosen have a lesson in them. I purchased each and every one of them and they are here for your listening pleasure only. They are highly compressed to save loading time, therefore the quality of sound is sacrificed. I ask that you please support the recording artists and musicians you might hear on my site by buying their cd's and listening to their music in the high quality they are intended to be. I do.
