There is no such thing as ‘part Cherokee.’  Either you’re Cherokee or you’re not.  It isn’t the quantity of  Cherokee blood that is in your veins that is important, but the quality of it…your pride in it.  I have seen full-bloods who have virtually no idea of the great legacy entrusted into their care.  Yet, I have seen people with as little as 1/500th blood quantam who inspire the spirits of their ancestors because they make being Cherokee a proud part of their everyday life.  ~Jim Pell: Principal Chief of the North Alabama Cherokee Tribe~

These past few months have been somewhat of a struggle for me with postings on my blog being somewhat sporadic.  Not knowing if I had anything of value to share, or what direction to take, I considered letting it die a slow death…but only for a few seconds:)

It’s just a little blog, something started out of my love for Second Life.  I am not sure if there is anything of value in the words I write, but write them I will. To those of you who follow my little blog…from the bottom of my heart, Thank You.

Having struggled  to find the direction needed, it was while I was shooting these photos and doing research that I realized my path had been chosen for me.  The “Great Spirit” does work in mysterious ways and who am I to argue ? 🙂

Raw shots using CalWL windlight tweaked a tad

Yesterday when putting this outfit together it hit me that there is not a single solitary thing I am wearing that is new, and you know what?  it’s okay.  First rule of Classic Cougar Style:  Wear what you love…and own it. Second rule of Classic Cougar Style:  There is no other rule.  This is Cougar, I am Cherokee, hear me Purrrrrrrrrrrrrr….loudly.  Cougar’s can’t roar ya know 🙂  Above all else, be kind to one another.  TWMA 🙂
