After two days of dark clouds and rain, at daylight this morning the sky cleared and the sun came out, a pair of Bald Eagles sitting down by the creek thinking about where to build their nest this year, a Marsh Hawk resting underneath them from his morning hunt, a Pileated Wood Pecker hunting for bugs after the rain, spring has come.  A welcome sign as the world faces one of the greatest challenges of the 21st Century, Spring a new beginning and a sign that we will survive.  I hope you will take a moment to see this day.


40th Anniversary Black Swan is available for $250

A Black Swan is an unpredictable event that is beyond what is normally expected and can cause potentially severe consequences, characterized by their extreme rarity, cannot be predicted and often in hindsight, the widespread evidence eventually became obvious.

Some Black Swan Events:
– Sept. 11, 2001
– 2008 Financial Crisis
– Coronavirus Pandemic 2020

But my friend Jim from Texas has decided to use a Bundy Black Swan as a message of hope, and has ordered 10 of our Swan carvings for 10 friends that he knows are struggling to survive these troubled times, sent to them with this message, “Sometimes even a “Black Swan can be a thing of beauty.”  He wants them to have this beautiful carving a gift to remember this time and that they did survive.  What a wonderful thought!
