Western and native art by Paul Carter art

I enjoy the outdoors and I periodically think about the old west the old frontier that all the men and women and children that made the journey west. 

Some to find gold and silver some to start a new life completely.

So many reasons so many inspired for adventure to find a wife a husband even a tribe to learn from.

I am so grateful and thankful to each of them all the my ancestors and family and friends that paved the way for my own life.
The Wild West art by Pail Carter
I have so much respect for the Native American Indians and the life and lifestyle they have lived  and continue throughout the United States.  

There is so much history and roots in SoCal that I have been so interested in and exploring.

To explore and experience a true Native American sweat lodge for over 3 years now has been an amazing journey.

Letting go of old conditioned negative thoughts and words is an amazing freedom from the negative codependencies on might have.

Native life art by Paul Carter

 Keep the fire stoked with positive creativity and keep exploring.

Waves are empowering on many levels from the power and the energy it is learned by experiencing them.
