What a fortuitous find



I was rewarded with a special find yesterday when I hoed my vegetable garden





I placed it into this old cabinet hanging on the wall in our barn.







We have worked our fields and gardens for more than twenty years.

  How did this large Indian Spearhead come to the surface?  
There it laid, on top of the ground, for me to pick up and bring me luck. 








Our Spring, which flows at 39 gallons per minute, supplies water for our fields and ever changing vistas for us to enjoy.  

Long before the White Man came it is no wonder Native Americans chose this very spot, to spend a few days or a few months or maybe even years.






Today I took my new Talisman out of the old green cabinet and put it in my apron pocket.  

Have you found your Talisman?  

Thank you for stopping by dear friends and have a wonderful week.  

Gina

  1. How exciting, it is a real treasure. In my imagination I see the Indians racing on their horses along that beautiful spring on your land......

    1. Hello Janneke, No doubt that was exactly what was going on around our pond before we showed up. Holding the artifact in my hand made me want to see into the past.

  2. Dear Gina,

    That is an exciting find, and it makes one realize that often only the dimension of time seperates us from all sorts of very different experiences. Where I live, there were settlements of Seminole Indians, and it is now believed that in their attunement to nature, they chose the area knowing it would be better protected from hurricanes. I certainly like to believe that!

    1. Dear Mark, Your comment about the Seminole Indians makes me want to do a little research about their history. I have seen photographs...they were a handsome and colorful tribe.

    2. Yes, on both counts. If you look up images of the Seminoles, you'll see that they loved textiles, and had very distinctive costumes, which continue to this day.

  3. What a beautiful find. My brother finds them everywhere. He can just get out and walk around and find them. The Trail of Tears went near our property, and we live near the Indian Mounds where Sautee and Nacoochee are buried. They were a young couple from different tribes who were in love and not allowed to marry. The legend goes that they jumped from a nearby mountain and are buried at its foot. (N. Georgia). These artifacts are so meaningful. So glad you found it.

    1. Thank you Kathy for sharing this very poignant story. Your brother has a very special gift. It is easy to walk over so many treasures without recognizing them.

  4. Hmm, Gina, this is sort of post that does set me to thinking about how this giant city in which I live seems very focused on erasing its past...unles said past treasure might catch the attention of a landmarks commission...particularly a commission with a patron like Jackie Kennedy Onassis, who helped save glorious Grand Centran Terminal.

    Your find is a gem. Treasure it...as I know you will. xo

    1. Dear Frances, I do believe that certain artifacts have special powers. We should treasure them and, if possible, make them part of our lives.
      How lucky we are to have patrons, such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis and many others, who have taken the time, money and energy to preserve what would otherwise have long been destroyed.
