Happy New Year 2013

January 1, 2013



The Raven flies with one eye looking back and one eye looking forward so she knows where she has been, and where  she is going. The Blue-eyed Bear asks her friend Raven to help her know where she’s been so she can move forward confidently into the New Year.


Christmas is Hare

December 24, 2012


The Blue-eyed Bear is the first to witness a new phenomenon the Christmas Hare! Since the Arctic is melting humans may have to adjust their myths, and well the Arctic Hare is just crazy enough to audition for the job. The BE Bear has no idea where the Hare got the hat and bells. Happy Holidays!


Touché, but without a Foible

July 31, 2012

The Blue-eyed Bear gets the touch.

The Blue-eyed Bear lunges to score one on Wenlock. What classic form and the BE-Bear is only using a stick! That stick may be without a foible, which is 6 inches to the tip of the blade or the weakest most bendable part of the foil.


The Games Begin

July 31, 2012

And we call it Ping Pong!

The Blue-eyed Bear and Wenlock challenge each other with Table Tennis, which has been a Olympic game since 1988. The BE Bear tries the Flick and the Smash but Wenlock is pretty quick. Wenlock may get the win.


London Olympics 2012

July 31, 2012

Wenlock and the Blue-eyed Bear do London.

The Blue-eyed Bear has made her way back to Britain for the 2012 Olympic games. Since the BE Bear has no Home Country as she was forced out of the Arctic by Global Warming she thought she would compete on her own. However, she has made a new friend of the Olympic mascot, Wenlock. Together they will be trying their hand and paw at various games over the next two Olympic weeks.

Where could those young Hawks be Bear?

The Blue-eyed Bear has been spending her time following the young lives of three Red-tailed Hawks and their parents Big Red (moma) and Ezra (dad). The parents have an ongoing nest a 70 ft high light tower overlooking the practice fields at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Three little hawklets hatched this spring and the BE Bear has been following their progress. You can too, because the Department of Ornithology at Cornell has placed 2 cameras on the nest. Just google Cornell hawk cams to get to the link. The hawklets are young hawks now having all fledged by June 14th. Their all still in the vicinity of the nest however as mom and dad teach them the Ways of the Hawk. But since they have flow its a lot harder for the BE Bear and the ornithologists at Cornell to keep track of their young lives. The  BE Bear wishes them all the best, best, best and would like to give a Big Thank You to the dedicated individuals as Cornell for giving her the opportunity to have this Adventure.


Daruma Bear

April 9, 2012

The Blue-eyed Bear says never give up on your life’s goals. An old oriental saying tells us “eight times up” That is you  may go down seven times but the eight time you will roll back up and make your mark! Just as the daruma bear can never be kept down. Roll on Daruma Bear!


Heaven and Earth Sing!

December 25, 2011

The Blue-eyed Bear and a few Arctic Friends enjoy a starry song!

All creatures of Heaven and Earth sing to honor the turning of the year. Honor the old and what has gone before and ring in the promise of the new. Whether the coming year brings a messiah or more of the same it  is for sure it will be full of wonder. So no matter what don’t be blue and don’t be bleak lift your voice to the Stars and sing!


Abominable Snowbear

December 5, 2011

A white bear against the Arctic or Himalayan snows is all eyes, nose, and claws! In Tibetan  the term is metoh-kangmi or man bear -snowman. It  was a “Glacier Being” or god of the hunt.  The Blue-eyed bear continues this tradition of a  Great Being in a mystical land. Now you see her, now you don’t. What is she hunting? Maybe you!


Himalaya Adventure

November 8, 2011

The Blue-eyed Bear encounters a Snow Leopard.

Always on the looking for a new place to call home the Blue-eyed Bear is in an extremely remote corner or the earth, the high Himalaya. This beautiful and extreme country may be remote enough and safe enough from human encroachment. But, can the B.E. Bear make friends with the mysterious “ghost cat”, the Snow Leopard, the top predator in this land.

Still,  the Snow Leopard too faces threats from poaching, loss of habitat, and loss of prey animals. Conditions that affect top predators, except humans, all around the world. The Snow Leopard Trust estimates there are some 3,500 to 7,000 cats left in the wilds. And the B.E. Bear is lucky enough to meet one.
