9 Sept 2018 Defragging (drawing) and Pluto

Hi there.  Hope this finds you well in your present moment.  As you may have noticed I’ve not been doing so much outdoor chalk drawing lately.  Part of it is because of the wonderful wet weather we’ve been experiencing here lately and part of it something strange that happened to me with color.  I started to make associations, sometimes negative ones, with colors.  The same thing that I was experiencing with specific objects, some of which got broken.  Just taking a break from it and retreating back to pencils and pens for a bit.  Honestly, I’ve never been comfortable with adding color to my art.  It’s such a commitment!  This past Friday I told my friend who has a couple of my paintings that she has proof I stepped out of my comfort zone!

Do you remember the scene in the movie Close Encounters when Richard Dreyfuss character Roy Neary is shaping his mashed potatoes into Devil’s Tower and exclaims, “This MEANS something!?”  Wife is vexed, kids crying in the “Daddy your scaring me” sort of way and there he is trying to explain himself to people who just can’t understand the fuck it is he’s thinking and doing with those mashed potatoes!

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind Mashed Potatoes

Published on May 30, 2011

Dinner scene in the 1977 classic movie ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ from director Steven Spielberg. Starring Richard Dreyfuss. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) can’t get the image of the Devil’s Tower out of his head, and creates the shape of it in mashed potatoes…

Life is kind of like that for me sometimes lol!  What the fuck is she thinking?!  What the fuck is she doing?!  What is wrong with her?!  Thankfully my dogs just want to be along for the ride and my husband actually gets the meaning behind most of my art and other expressions.  Sometimes we’ve been known to both shape our piles of mashed potatoes into Devil’s Tower, look at each other and not have to say it.

Some of you may find my “numbers thing” odd.  It’s become for me what doing a crossword puzzle or Suduko might be for someone else.  I am finding there is honesty in numbers that I don’t always find in words.   Like people, words don’t always mean what they say.

8 Sept 2018 – Drawing I did yesterday thinking about how meditating, praying, having a moment of silence is like defragging ourselves.

“Defragging a computer” = 190/10/1

Defragment = 93/12/3 cycle

Prayer = 83/11/2/1

Pray = 60/6/3 cycle

Meditate = 77/14/5   (talk about an intersection in the numbers, #Christ =77)

Chant = 46/10/1

“Moment of silence” = 168/15/6/3 cycle

= 717/15/6/3 cycle

“It all passes through, let it go” = 318/12/3 cycle  (one of my mantras when I’m trying to calm myself down)

anxiety = 98/17/8/4/2/1

fear = 30/3 cycle

worry = 99/18/9 cycle

happiness = 107/8/4/2/1

emotion = 91/10/1

feeling = 58/13/4/2/1

= 483/15/6/3 cycle (the numeric value of my mantra is in the numeric summary of words associated with it.)

= 1518/168/15/6/3 cycle (adding it all up) = “Moment of silence” = 168/15/6/3 cycle

 

Side note – saw just this morning they are taking another look at Pluto.  Just yesterday afternoon I was thinking about this too!  I added it back in and it seems to make sense to do that.  :

“Milky Way Galaxy” = 189/18/9 cycle

166 + 752 = 918 (same numeric values as Milky Way Galaxy)

“Solar system” = 166/12/13/4/2/1

Mercury = 103/4/2/1 Venus = 81/9 cycle Earth = 52/7 Mars = 51/6/3 cycle

Jupiter = 99/18/9 cycle Saturn = 93/12/3 cycle Uranus = 94/13/4/2/1

Neptune = 95/14/5

= 668/20/2 or 38/11/2

Pluto = 84/12/3 cycle

668 + 84 = 752/14/5 or 41/5  (5 like a celestial body?  celestial body = 132/6/3 cycle)

Lyrics

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah

You’ve arrived in the land of a thousand different names
And the fabulous sons have crashed their planes in flames
Now tomorrow is back claiming redemption is on your heels
And a toothless past is asking you how it feels

And me, my little red corvette has driven by
Fair weather heart has fallen in
My rainyday girl is feeling down
And she tells me that the world is spinning round

I say the dream was all for you
You’re nobody else
Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
Yeah

Hi! Can I walk you home again today?
Gotta get forgive and forget hey hey
Something good is happening and I don’t know what it is
Don’t you know we’re back on trial again today

And it’s breaking wine for you
Hell!, it’s only ’cause you’re true
Someone outtimed my heart
Stopping and preaching and letting love in

You are my moon, you are my sun
Heaven knows what you are
Tonight the zeroes are singing for you
Yes, they were

Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
You
Tonight the zeroes were singing for you
You

It doesn’t matter what you try to do
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter what you try to do
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter where you try to go
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter who we really are
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)

Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)

Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter
(Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter)
Doesn’t matter

Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race is a 2016 non-fiction book written by Margot Lee Shetterly.[1] Shetterly started working on the book in 2010.[2] The book takes place from the 1930s through the 1960s when women were still viewed as inferior to men.[3] The biographical text follows the lives of Human Computers such as Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, three mathematicians (known as “human computers”[4]) who overcame discrimination, as women and as African Americans, while working at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race, as well as Christine Darden, who was the first African-American woman to be promoted into the Senior Executive Service for her work in researching supersonic flight and sonic booms.[5][6] It was the basis of a film by the same name which was nominated for three Oscars.[1][7] The book reached number one on The New York Times Non-Fiction Best Sellers list[8] and got the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Nonfiction in 2017.

Topic[edit]

Hidden Figures tells the story of African-American women who worked as computers to solve problems for engineers and others at NASA. For the first years of their careers, the workplace was segregated and women were kept in the background as human computers.[9][10] Author Margot Lee Shetterly’s father was actually a research scientist at NASA who worked with many of the book’s main characters. The book explains how these three historical women overcame the discrimination and racial segregation to become three American figures in history. The main character, Katherine Johnson, calculated rocket trajectories for the Mercury and Apollo missions.[11] Johnson successfully “took matters into her own hands”;[11] by being adamant with her supervisor about her capabilities, Katherine Johnson was allowed into all male meetings at NASA.[11][12]

NASA spacecraft rockets toward sun for closest look yet

By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer

NASA Launches First Ever Solar Probe To ‘Touch The Sun’

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A NASA spacecraft rocketed toward the sun Sunday on an unprecedented quest to get closer to our star than anything ever sent before.

The Parker Solar Probe will fly straight through the wispy edges of the corona, or outer solar atmosphere, that was visible during last August’s total solar eclipse. It eventually will get within 3.8 million (6 million kilometers) of the sun’s surface, staying comfortably cool despite the extreme heat and radiation, and allowing scientists to vicariously explore the sun in a way never before possible.

No wonder scientists consider it the coolest, hottest mission under the sun, and what better day to launch to the sun than Sunday as NASA noted.

“Fly baby girl, fly!!” project scientist Nicola Fox of Johns Hopkins University tweeted just before liftoff. She urged it to “go touch the sun!”

Protected by a revolutionary new carbon heat shield and other high-tech wonders, the spacecraft will zip past Venus in October. That will set up the first solar encounter in November. Altogether, the Parker probe will make 24 close approaches to the sun on the seven-year, $1.5 billion undertaking.

For the second straight day, thousands of spectators jammed the launch site in the middle of the night as well as surrounding towns, including 91-year-old astrophysicist Eugene Parker for whom the spacecraft is named. He proposed the existence of solar wind — a steady, supersonic stream of particles blasting off the sun — 60 years ago.

It was the first time NASA named a spacecraft after someone still alive, and Parker wasn’t about to let it take off without him. Saturday morning’s launch attempt was foiled by last-minute technical trouble.

“I’m just so glad to be here with him,” said NASA’s science mission chief, Thomas Zurbuchen. “Frankly, there’s no other name that belongs on this mission.”

The Mobile Service Tower is rolled back to reveal the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket with the Parker Solar Probe onboard, Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018, Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Fla. A last-minute technical problem Saturday delayed NASA’s unprecedented flight to the sun. Rocket maker United Launch Alliance said it would try again Sunday, provided the helium-pressure issue can be resolved quickly. Once on its way, the Parker probe will venture closer to our star than any other spacecraft. (Bill Ingalls/NASA via AP)© The Associated Press The Mobile Service Tower is rolled back to reveal the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket with the Parker Solar Probe onboard, Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018, Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Fla. A last-minute technical problem Saturday delayed NASA’s unprecedented flight to the sun. Rocket maker United Launch Alliance said it would try again Sunday, provided the helium-pressure issue can be resolved quickly. Once on its way, the Parker probe will venture closer to our star than any other spacecraft. (Bill Ingalls/NASA via AP) The Delta IV Heavy rocket thundered into the pre-dawn darkness, thrilling onlookers for miles around. NASA needed the mighty 23-story rocket, plus a third stage, to get the diminutive Parker probe — the size of a small car and well under a ton — racing toward the sun.

From Earth, it is 93 million miles to the sun (150 million kilometers), and the Parker probe will be within 4 percent of that distance. That will be seven times closer than previous spacecraft.

Parker will start shattering records this fall. On its very first brush with the sun, it will come within 15.5 million miles (25 million kilometers), easily beating the current record set by NASA’s Helios 2 spacecraft in 1976. By the time Parker gets to its 22nd orbit of the sun, it will be even deeper into the corona and traveling at a record-breaking 430,000 mph (690,000 kilometers per hour).

Nothing from Planet Earth has ever hit that kind of speed.

Even Fox has difficulty comprehending the mission’s derring-do.

“To me, it’s still mind-blowing,” she said. “Even I still go, really? We’re doing that?”

Zurbuchen considers the sun the most important star in our universe — it’s ours, after all — and so this is one of NASA’s big-time strategic missions. By better understanding the sun’s life-giving and sometimes violent nature, Earthlings can better protect satellites and astronauts in orbit, and power grids on the ground, he noted. In today’s tech-dependent society, everyone stands to benefit.

With this mission, scientists hope to unlock the many mysteries of the sun, a commonplace yellow dwarf star around 4.5 billion years old. Among the puzzlers: Why is the corona hundreds of times hotter than the surface of the sun and why is the sun’s atmosphere continually expanding and accelerating, as the University of Chicago’s Parker accurately predicted in 1958?

“The only way we can do that is to finally go up and touch the sun,” Fox said. “We’ve looked at it. We’ve studied it from missions that are close in, even as close as the planet Mercury. But we have to go there.”

The spacecraft’s heat shield will serve as an umbrella, shading the science instruments during the close, critical solar junctures. Sensors on the spacecraft will make certain the heat shield faces the sun at the right times. If there’s any tilting, the spacecraft will correct itself so nothing gets fried. With a communication lag time of 16 minutes each way, the spacecraft must fend for itself at the sun. The Johns Hopkins flight controllers in Laurel, Maryland, will be too far away to help.

A mission to get close up and personal with our star has been on NASA’s books since 1958. The trick was making the spacecraft small, compact and light enough to travel at incredible speeds, while surviving the sun’s punishing environment and the extreme change in temperature when the spacecraft is out near Venus.

“We’ve had to wait so long for our technology to catch up with our dreams,” Fox said. “It’s incredible to be standing here today.”

More than 1 million names are aboard the spacecraft, submitted last spring by space enthusiasts, as well as photos of Parker, the man, and a copy of his 1958 landmark paper on solar wind.

“I’ll bet you 10 bucks it works,” Parker said.

10 Aug 2018 Simple Reminder, Dreams and Hot Glue and Aluminum Pyramid

Hello to you in your here and now as you visit me here.  Thank you for taking the time.  Hopefully visits here are part of the fulfillment aspect of your time in this life.

Time is an illusion with a face and moving hands.

So this morning I got teary, in a good way.  We were walking Link and Spot and our neighbor George came out to head to work.  We did a cheery exchange of how are you doings like we always do and then I said, “It’s a rough time for a lot of folks” and stopped and looked at me and said, “Is it?” and that made me pause and think, “I like that!” I said.  Positive thinking and faith in one phrase.  It’s hard times if you believe it and if you focus your thoughts on the difficulties and not the blessings.  He said, “We got rain” and I said, “I was out playing in it too, grateful to God for that!”

As we walked away, I felt myself tearing up at this simple exchange.  It was a reminder.  My sharing this isn’t to say or negate the fact that life isn’t difficult for too many people.  It’s about mindfulness and empowerment – mastering the struggles you are facing on your terms.

Profound quote I found this morning that I had never seen/read before:

See the source image

I didn’t have a very restful sleep again last night, part of the reason I’m more easily triggered emotionally.  I had a couple of weird/troubling dreams.  The first dream was of an Asian woman and something about being put in a brothel against her will.  The second was of a woman with blonde hair put up on her head.  She was wearing a red gown with straps.  She almost looked like Sissy Spacek in the movie Carrie (Carrie’s dress started out white).  The woman had a long tan arms and there was a red welt on one of them.  I don’t know if the welt was a sore or from an injection.  She was struggling against someone or something.  Then all the sudden she was wrapped in this white latex and looked like one of the featureless wisp people in my drawings.  She had a crown of the same white material attached to her head.  Then she was put into what looked like a sarcophagus or casing of some kind.  As I watched this happening in my dream, it was like she was going to live in it.

More weird from Jackie’s dream theater!  I have no idea where this stuff comes from.  Sometimes I wonder if I’m walking in someone else’s dream world or they have put their stuff in mine!  Most likely it’s just my brain putting together snippets of all the data I’ve been exposed to in my waking world and making a movie.  Sometimes I wish my mind would just move things directly to the cutting room floor!

 

5 Aug 2018 Painting (Metatron’s Cube)

Hi there.   It’s hot this afternoon and there has been harvesting going on in the field next to us – good day to stay in and paint!  There is something about the process of creating a Metatron’s Cube that flexes my brain muscles and is very relaxing for me.   I’m not great at it but I enjoy it.

For my first try at painting such a complicated design, it doesn’t look too bad – suitable for me anyways lol.  I need lots more practice!  In watching a few step by step videos, I suspect I am missing a few lines!  You really have to measure this thing out and admittedly I didn’t.  The gold and silver glitter fabric paint helped to offset the imperfections!

This one of a couple of the tutorials I watched.  I don’t do the complicated start this one does.   I usually start with 5 circles and do the Fruit of Life design when I start drawing mine.

How to draw METATRON

27 July 2018 Dreams, Drawings and Prince

Hello to you.  I hope this finds you well in the moment you are in as you visit here.  Yesterday I was out drawing quite a bit even though it was hot.  It was just enough not as hot as the past days to make it fairly comfortable.  This morning it is overcast, cooler and there is talk of rain in our forecast.  I really hope we do get a bit of rain, not too much at once of course!

Lots of dreams last night – shopping of one sort or another lol.  I hate shopping for the most part so that was weird.  I was apparently looking to find a ruby or red stone ring and was all over the place with that.  Some of the places seemed familiar like vendors at the Holistic Fair that had crystals, jewelry shops etc.  Wouldn’t that be funny if we had favorite places in our dreams and could go back to them if we wanted to?  Anyhew…no find the ring.  The key behind this is a ring in the Pyramid catalog that caught my eye but I am not going to buy it.  I want to use that money to pay for me to get as much picture space as I want here on WordPress instead lol!  Plus I don’t need anymore jewelry!

So there was that and then the funny one was with Kyle and I going to this HUGE outdoor flea market like place.  Stuff was spread out for miles on this property.  Well Kyle had his heart set on bidding on the rocking chair of some old race car driver!  I told Kyle about this and he laughed because it isn’t like him to want such a think in our world.  He used to like to watch NASCAR and his favorite driver was Jeff Gordon until he retired.

See the source image

The dream before I woke up involved my Dad and a beaded necklace.  He was showing me a stretchy beaded necklace.  It was like he was teaching me something about making it.  I woke up thinking how proud I was to learn something from my Dad.  I have had my Dad on my mind a lot and I think the necklace bit is my mind adding the last bit of The Hobbit when Bilbo gives away a necklace the was given to the Elvenking Thranduil out of gratitude for food and drink.

See the source image

I hope something here is what you were looking for, is helpful to you somehow today.  Sending you lots of positive vibes through the wires and on the winds (and hopefully gentle rains) that connect us all.

24 July 2018 Finished painting, chalk drawings (Kate’s bracelets – dream) and Orgone

23 July 2018 – Kyle’s painting is finished! I am so pleased he did this with me.  Cried happy tears a couple of times yesterday lol.  There is so much going on!  There are colors of the Irish flag (he’s 41% Irish), dragon scales, blue blood (royal bloodlines on his Mom’s side), our wedding colors of black and white, hearts, purple of unity.  He is calling it Times Heart. 

23 July 2018 – This one is about how the water on the ground goes back up in the sky.  The cycle of water.

23 July 2018 – This one is inspired by me thinking about being out in my swim suite in the pouring rain.  I was trying to actively visualize relief from this drought!!

R A I N = 42/6/3 cycle (life, death, rebirth) – of course!

23 July 2018 – The pencil and pen drawing I did so I have a tangible reference. I’m thinking this would be a neat painting to do.

23 July 2018 – Side by side. You can probably see why I like chalk – it’s more forgiving and softer.

23 July 2018 – This drawing has cycles, the water table and solar flare going on. When I start drawing stuff like this I just put it on the slab. My imagination is not entirely my own.

23 July 2018 – This morning I realized the side ways canoe of space ship design correlated to a dream I had just before waking this morning!  I had a dream about a little girl named Kate who looked a bit like Eleven from Stranger Things.  She was working on some healing bracelets like ones I’ve really made before out of copper wire.  The metal was like copper but a more advanced alloy.  I can remember seeing her face on a large computer tablet.  She was working with a young man who I shook hands with.  I had made three separate bracelets of my own.  Just before I woke up he showed me a quarter turn that was needed to put them into one bracelet that would work like the one’s Kate was working on.  The bracelet completed look like the center part of this drawing.

23 July 2018 – Sometimes I just draw these people together. When I finished I heard “Th” so I added it. Kind of like “9th” I guess?

24 July 2018 – I found this in the yard yesterday when I was walking around. It’s one of the first pieces of orgonite I made. I had made it into a pendant for a time but it was too heavy. I find myself wondering what else am I going to find I put in the yard?! https://saymber.com/2015/06/11/11-june-2015-wilhelm-reich-and-orgonomy-by-ola-raknes-its-in-the-structure/

https://orgonomicscience.org/  – this is a link to The Institute For Orgonomic Science which is dedicated to the work of Dr. Wilhelm Reich which included research to try to treat and cure cancer.

Reich now turned to exploring micro-organisms, to see if the energy measured in humans could also be detected on the cellular level. By this point Reich had left the university for a well-funded private laboratory. He first published the results of his experiments in “Dialectical Materialism in Life-Research. Report on the Bion Experiments” (1937). This was followed by the book, Die Bione – Zur Entstehung des vegetativen Lebens (The Bions: On the Origin of Vegetative Life)  (1938).

Briefly, bions are microscopic vesicles, seen as transitional entities between the non-living and the living; these vesicles move in ways that cannot be explained by purely mechanical movement (Brownian movement); they form more readily if the solution is heated in a way that should kill any spores or “air germs”; and they are often seen to have a blue edge to them–those with the strongest electrical charge have the greatest motility, pulsation and bluish color. Bions prepared under sterile conditions with a strong electrical charge could also be successfully sub-cultured.

This description of bions is in no way complete, but should give the reader a rudimentary idea of their nature. Their discovery played a central role in Reich’s realization that the energy phenomenon he was observing was not electricity as conventionally understood, but a distinct biological energy, which he came to call orgone energy in 1939.

Drawing based on dream I had 18 Jan 2006

21 July 2018 Mary and the Witch’s Flower (animated film), chalk drawings, lovely before dark and painting progress

Hello to you in your where, when, here and now as you stop by.  How are you?  I hope you are well in mind, body and spirit and if your not that you are on your way to attaining healing and peace in whatever areas ail you.  I’ve been kind of grumpy lately about things that I have little to no control over.  I’m working on it.  Got a sweet letter from my Mom yesterday and that helps turn a frown upside down!  She mentioned having read some of my blogs and that meant a lot to me.  She is always so busy with living and loving life – activities that usually involve helping others and aren’t on the computer.  For her to take the time for me like that is a pretty big deal to me!

So Kyle and I did that thing we do a lot living so closely connected to each other.  I had gone out and did a drawing with what I perceived as a powerful flower as the focus.  Later in the evening Kyle chose, at random, a delightful animated film called Mary and the Witch’s Flower.  It had a very Harry Potter theme.  One of the voices in the version we watched was actually from the Harry Potter verse!  The voice of Dr. Dee was Jim Broadbent (Horace Slughorn from Harry Potter.)  One of my favorite aspects of the film was how beautifully rendered the nature aspects were done.  In a few frames it was hard to tell if I was looking at an actual scene from nature or a painting.   We like animated films a lot.  The one we are anticipating is the sequel to Castlevania in October!

16 July 2018 Cycles of Spirit (painting), Glitter and Jane Goodall Joins Wyoming Protestors in Buying Up Grizzly Hunt Tickets

Hello!  I finished my painting, Kyle is still working on his and taking his time – so proud of him!  After I finished mine, complete with lots of glitter paint, I saw my friend had posted a video about how bad glitter is for the environment….ugh.  Cue pin popping balloon!  I am trying to finish up all the stuff I have and not buy any more of it until I can find an alternative for adding sparkle to my paintings.  It’s important to be a responsible makers/creators in this world.  If we don’t buy it, there is no profit in them making it and eventually they will stop.  In the case of like micro-beads, some responsible governments have put themselves behind banning the products from being made at all.  I would be bummed if glitter disappeared but I’d definitely get over it.

Apparently mica powder, eucalyptus leaves and even lentils treated with aluminum could be alternatives to traditional glitter.   I’ll have to look into these options when I prepare to purchase more art materials like paint etc.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mica

Mica

The mica group of sheet silicate (phyllosilicate) minerals includes several closely related materials having nearly perfect basal cleavage. All are monoclinic, with a tendency towards pseudohexagonal crystals, and are similar in chemical composition. The nearly perfect cleavage, which is the most prominent characteristic of mica, is explained by the hexagonal sheet-like arrangement of its atoms.

The word mica is derived from the Latin word mica, meaning a crumb, and probably influenced by micare, to glitter.[5]

Mica powder[edit]

Throughout the ages, fine powders of mica have been used for various purposes, including decorations. Powdered mica glitter is used to decorate traditional water clay pots in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh; it is also used on traditional Pueblo pottery, though not restricted to use on water pots in this case. The gulal and abir (colored powders) used by North Indian Hindus during the festive season of Holi contain fine crystals of mica to create a sparkling effect. The majestic Padmanabhapuram Palace, 65 km (40 mi) from Trivandrum in India, has colored mica windows. Mica powder is also used as a decoration in traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking, as when applied to wet ink and allowed to dry it sparkles and reflects light.

Changing gears –

I saw this today and am so proud of the concerned citizens and folks like Jane Goodall who are doing what they can to try and stop the Grizzly Bear hunt in Wyoming.  I can’t do much, I’ve tried phone calls and letters before and that didn’t do much for stuff like this.   What I can do is use this blog and pass it on.  I don’t understand why people like to kill sentient beings for trophies and call it sport.  I could understand if the people of Wyoming were starving to death and had to do whatever they had to do to survive.  I could understand if Wyoming was being completely overrun by bears and they had to defend themselves from them.

Trophy/Sport hunting feels like a waste of life and a waste of God’s gifts to this planet.

I think shooting a majestic animal like a bear through the lense of a camera is the way to go.  I would love to see eco-tourism a boom for the people of Wyoming and all states like it that are supposed to be good stewards for wild beings.

Jane Goodall Joins Wyoming Protestors in Buying Up Grizzly Hunt Tickets

Todd Wilkinson
Within the last few days, Goodall, 84, and Moss, 78, entered a lottery hoping to win a coveted hunting license in Wyoming allowing them to sport shoot a grizzly bear in the Yellowstone region. They have no aspirations to actually kill a bruin. Their maneuver is part of a mass act of civil disobedience to protest Wyoming’s controversial hunt of up to 22 grizzlies—the first in 44 years—slated to commence only weeks from now.

Called “Shoot ‘em With A Camera, Not A Gun,” the impromptu campaign, spearheaded mainly by women, has caught hunting officials in Wyoming off guard. It has also created a groundswell among those who condemn the state’s recommencement of a trophy season on grizzlies just a year after they were removed from federal protection. In May, Wyoming’s wildlife commission approved the hunt unanimously 7-0.

“People felt desperate, wanting to do something positive that could help keep these bears alive. I think we surprised ourselves at how much public support this has gotten in so little time,” says Jackson Hole conservationist Lisa Robertson.

Targeted Plan

The strategy of “Shoot ‘em With A Camera” is to swamp Wyoming’s random system for allocating bear licenses with applications from non-hunters. Should they be awarded a coveted tag, they’ll head into the mountains this fall to take pictures of grizzlies rather than stalking them with rifles.

Begun less than a week ago, “Shoot ‘em” has gone viral on social media. A final push is being made to enlist thousands of bear advocates to apply for a hunting license (https://wgfd.wyo.gov/apply-or-buy) before Monday’s deadline (July 16) at midnight mountain time.

The campaign grew out of a meeting of 19 concerned citizens (16 of them women) and then a group of five who floated the unconventional concept in an ad in the local Jackson Hole newspaper. Ann Smith provided her phone number to answer any questions and she braced for the worse.

“What stunned me is the number of positive calls I’ve received and 85 to 90 percent have come from women,” Smith says. Driving around Jackson Hole in a replica antique pick-up truck, the bed of Smith’s vehicle has a near life-sized stuffed teddy bear in it with a sign that reads “Grizzly Lives Matter.” “No one has called me up on the phone and yelled at me,” she said. I’ve received lots of affirmative horn honks and people giving me thumbs up.”

Brian Nesvik, chief game warden with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, is not so enamored. He acknowledged he was surprised at how fast the campaign mobilized, heightening a level of drama that was already unprecedented given that it involves the wildlife symbol of the Yellowstone region.

Thousands of hunters nationwide and plenty in his state, he said, are excited by the prospect of being able to take a grizzly, with the odds of securing a license still astronomically low. Now, with perhaps thousands of additional applications pouring in, it makes those chances even slimmer.

“This is more about taking away hunting opportunity than having an impact on our population management objective,” Nesvik said, noting that with 700 grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone region, Wyoming’s quota will not jeopardize the population.

In Wyoming, population 580,000, citizens are divided over whether bears should be killed for sport. During a nationwide public comment session, when the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was readying to turn management of grizzlies over to Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, more than 650,000 people weighed in, the vast majority expressing opposition to trophy hunting.

The discussion about wildlife management in America has long been dominated by hunters, but with their numbers declining nationwide, non-consumptive admirers of nature are refusing to stand passively on the sidelines, says attorney Deidre Bainbridge.

Concern over grizzlies has created a force to be reckoned with, she says. “Now we, many strong women, are speaking out for wildlife management based on science, fact and respect for life, not money and politics.” (Learn more about Yellowstone, America’s wild idea.)

Impacting the Lottery?

The lottery selects license recipients at random based on a computer program, the same kind used to award permits to kill other big game species. Three quarters of the licenses are reserved for Wyomingites and the rest for out-of-staters. Nesvik acknowledges the campaign could mean fewer bears die.

While it costs less than $20 to enter Wyoming’s grizzly hunt sweepstakes, those few individuals who get licenses then have to shell out for the tag—$602 for Wyoming residents and $6,002 for out-of-staters (who also must then enlist a guide).

American wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen, who stands firmly opposed to the hunt, has signed up for the lottery and if a non-Wyoming resident secures a tag he said he’ll pay half of their $6,000 fee. To help others who do get a tag cover their costs, there’s also a fundraising campaign at GoFundMe.

The tactic of using licenses not to kill bears is legal. “I just feel it’s wrong to kill animals for fun,” Moss told National Geographic as she was visiting Wyoming this week. “Tourism brings in millions upon millions more than any amount generated through the killing of grizzlies. The economic rationale being made by people who simply want to shoot bears doesn’t hold water.”

Wyoming has spent tens of millions of dollars to manage grizzlies since 1975. But that’s actually a small number when extrapolated over four decades and compared to the $1 billion annually generated for the regional economy based on nature-related tourism in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks alone. Wildlife watching ranks among the most desired activities by travelers and interest in it continues to grow.

Judy Hofflund has been coming to Wyoming for 50 years and remembers the era when grizzlies were virtually eliminated and few thought they would return. Hofflund has a vacation home in Jackson Hole and recently retired from a long career as an agent in Hollywood for actors such as Kenneth Branagh, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sally Field, and Kevin Kline.

Yet it’s been a different star in recent years that caught her eye—famed Jackson Hole grizzly mother 399, arguably the most famous bear in the world, beloved to millions. 399, often viewed along the roadsides of Grand Teton National Park, is 22 years old and, with two cubs at her side, has again been attracting large crowds.

“When the Greater Yellowstone grizzly population was delisted [removed from federal protection] and it became apparent states like Wyoming wanted to offer bears as trophies to hunters, it broke my heart,” she said. “Grizzly 399 is such a beautiful mother, intelligent and caring. This effort is our attempt to give bears like her a voice.” (How the world’s most famous wolf lived hard.)

A Wider Debate

Where Wyoming is leading the Lower 48 back into a new era of grizzly hunting, citing human intolerance toward bears as a reason for targeting them in areas where they aren’t wanted, the Canadian province of British Columbia serves as a counterpoint. It recently ended grizzly hunting, citing declining social tolerance for trophy hunting. British Columbia has roughly 20 times the number of grizzlies that Wyoming does and they roam across a much larger area.

Hunting grizzlies in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem is an anachronism, says endangered animal advocate Heather Lang Mycoskie, who spends summers in Jackson Hole and sits on the national council of the Humane Society of the U.S. Not only has she applied for a grizzly tag herself but she’s recruited family and friends to do the same, including people who hunt birds and big game for the table.

“The debate now isn’t one of hunters vs. non-hunters,” she said. “There’s a divide in the hunting community that has opened up whether grizzlies should be shot as trophies.” Mycoskie has received a helping hand in spreading the word about “Shoot ‘em With A Camera” from her entrepreneur-philanthropist husband, Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS shoes.

Nesvik says Wyoming is actually being conservative with the number of bears it is allowing hunters to take. “I really, truly respect those people who have a philosophical disagreement with grizzly hunting. And I respect people expressing their opinions that engaging in trophy hunting is an unethical activity. But some opponents are being disingenuous in skewing the science,” Nesvik said. “The science supports what we are are doing and it is not refutable. It’s as solid as we have for any species.”

Goodall is an ardent fan of grizzly 399. She also has accompanied her close friend Mangelsen, who lives in Jackson Hole and has chronicled the bruin’s life, on bear-viewing trips to Yellowstone and Alaska. Goodall made her opposition to grizzly hunting known to members of Congress, arguing it’s a travesty to turn bears beloved by millions into stuffed heads on the wall or floor rug that benefit only a few people.

The hunt itself may be endangered. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen is expected to issue a ruling in August on legal challenges to removing the bears from federal protection. If animal advocates prevail in the case, Wyoming’s hunt could be suspended.

“This is the start of a movement,” Robertson said. “We want to show that the worth of an animal is not measured by how much you can collect from killing it.”

Voices on a paper

I often eavesdrop to random voices roaming in the air. Some leave bruises on my eyelids due to the frequent wiping of tears. They have a saddening picture. Others stimulate endless smiles. Some would like to remain unidentified. All in all, I love to narrate stories of the sad, happy and mysterious voices.
