Sky Dreamers, Friends For Life
Giizhiginaabandangig, or Sky Dreamers, is a painting about two spirits who have been companions (perhaps even lovers) for thousands of years and hundreds of new births. Always equal. Always searching upon arrival of each new world for the other. Once finding each other again, running, laughing, playing and learning together again. This is not just another romantic tale. It is a story about finding balance and learning acceptance. Acceptance of each new situation. Learning by learning how to find each other and walk whatever path chosen for them this life.
The Elder represents the grandfathers who have been watching them for many lifetimes. Teaching them and guiding them to each other before it is too late. A comfort zone in the heavens where they can sit, tell stories and share grand tales.
"You were my best friend in the nursery. You were the boy I loved as a child. You are the man I walked beside as a woman. It is your face I will see before I take my last rest in this life and it will be your essence I first sense when I awaken again."
