Anita Eaton | Yes, there are much better ways for artists to donate

The phone call from a worthy cause: “We are having an auction to raise funds for charity, and we want you and any artist you know to donate work. The exposure will be great for you. You can deduct the donation from your taxes.” (The allowed deduction is for of materials only, hardly any of the charities understand this when they decide to have an art auction, nor do they consider minimum bids, or sharing proceeds with the artists.)

Wendell George | Little Joe begins new journey

Little Joe wasn’t surprised when he discovered he was Native American. He had brown eyes, dark hair and some of his friends called him “Chief.” On his 13th birthday he decided to find out who his birth parents were. He had a good adopted family who provided him with an excellent education and a healthy life. But he wanted more.

Nancy Coolidge | Winning the battle

Two really nice things happened in my junior English class last week. We were finishing up “The Great Gatsby.” The kids were pretty excited about it — they’d done some work in their history class about the era; many of the students, mostly girls, had seen the latest movie, the book was short; the prose not too challenging. Most of the students actually read the book and didn’t rely on Spark Notes or other internet sources for their information. So the class discussion was lively and good.

Wendell George | Relinquish the ego, find balance

Do we get smarter as we grow older? Native Americans believe so because they have deep respect for their elders. As my Dad, Moses, became one he said the Salish word for it is “Sqool-Chel” which strictly means “Soul” but better understood as a process of “Going into goodness.” That means the best of anything. Dad believed it is our purpose in life and we naturally gravitate to it.
