Cold Weather

Wow, since my last post all proverbial hell has broken loose inasmuch as the weather goes, eh? This morning alone, the temperatures were -15 with a wind chill index of right around -30.

I have lived in the North country most of my life, interspersed with meanderings of many foreign and very interesting places and people. In those travels, I was exposed to many different types of weather, ranging from Sahara Desert hot to Greenland or Iceland cold, and many temps in between, but I enjoyed it. They were experiences I would not trade for anything.

Today I am luxuriating in the bliss of the Four Seasons of Wisconsin, my home State where I was born. I came into this world on August 16, 1939 near a small farming town of Arpin, Wisconsin in Wood County of Wisconsin. I have always seen this area as my home and having tired of those various travels, I chose to but some property in Waupun, Wisconsin, about 65 miles southwest of Milwaukee and perhaps 85 miles southeast of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

I encourage all of you to make comments to whatever I post. I have made this site as accessible as possible, posting it on another site I manage,…….

Talk with ya all again very soon as I shall be posting things about language and culture and the happenings around Indian Country, as I become aware of it.

Nin se Neaseno.

I was born on Powers Bluff in Wood County, Wisconsin, into a traditional community of Neshnabek. I was raised speaking only native languages, and learned to speak English upon entering school at the age of 6. As of this writing, I am one of 5 remaining Heritage Fluent Speakers of Potawatomi.

  1. I was born and have lived much of my life in Michigan although more than several times I went to live in California I have always returned here for one reason or another. I lived through some very cold winters and seen much more snow than we get now it seems. I feel most alive in the winter my senses seem the sharpest, the air is the cleanest, the stars in the sky the brightest I know it’s good for me this cold time. The spirits know me here this is home.
