Shhh…I think I hear a flute…

It was during our travels out West that we learned about the mystical flute player, Kokopelli, pronounced: “Coke-a-pellie.”

Using the Internet, I read: “The legend of Kokopelli is well-preserved in ancient rock carvings and paintings dating back as far as 3000 years.”

I also read: “Legend has it that his flute playing also symbolized the transition of winter to spring.”

So I thought it would be appropriate for a post on this, our first day of spring.

As you view my scroll-sawed “masterpiece”, listen very carefully, use some imagination, and perhaps you too will hear Kokopelli’s mesmerizing flute. IMG_0988

George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
