Spooner Advocate- Springbrook/Trego Column, October 8, 2015

Good morning. Wow! I know it isn't even really that cold out there, mid 50's to low 60's is not cold in the big picture. But man it feels very cold when you first go out your door and the cold air hits you in your face! Wow! I will try and stay positive.... it is refreshing, exhilarating! But I am just going to say it I LOVE fall...but dread winter. So I will enjoy and cherish the leaves that have turned.I will talk to the birds that continue to fly over the house on there way to destination unknown. I was happy to have some cranes come and visit with me in my pasture this year. Sure hope they come back as they are awesome!

We had an awesome writers weekend hosted by Trish and Carol at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College this last weekend. Lots of us rediscovered our inner voice and found that our stories did still flow out of us if we took the time to stop moving long enough to actually listen and write them down. It was great to meet Ryan Winn who is a Professor at the College of Menominee Nation. Some of you might know him from helping write plays about and with various Indian Nations. Some might know him for his writings in the Tribal College Journal. A HUGE thank you goes out to the Oneida Nation Arts Program that helped make this possible. More info can be found at or at or
