A short video, below, taken yesterday, of Holly, sharing her fish with the pushy little yearling cub!…what calm and patient generosity she shows!  The smaller spring cub didn’t quite get in on eating that fish…the yearling didn’t share!

Otis!!!!
(I think that’s Otis…hard to tell without seeing his other ear)
A very large male bear who sits all day, every day in his “office”
…catching and eating dozens of fish!

That is….until “Lurch” arrives and takes over that “office”
and Otis retreats to “the jacuzzi…”
but, even in the jacuzzi, Otis catches more fish than Lurch does!

A few mornings ago… sunrise from the Lower River area…stupendous colors!
I feel so inspired by these bears…
and so nurtured and inspired by the astounding beauty of the Brooks Falls area!

Brooks Falls…
The photo on the cover of  the book, Bearable,
a book I had created many years ago.

(When I “wrote” that book, I had no idea that the photo was taken at Brooks Falls! I’d never even heard of Brooks Falls!…well, I sure have now!!
I didn’t have permission for using the photos in the book, so only used it with the kids I taught….maybe some day I’ll find a special bear photographer with inspiring photos?…maybe so….???? The book really helped the kids in my class…and might be helpful to many more!)

Bearable, the book I created for the kids I taught…
encouraging and nurturing a sense of  connection, persistence, strength and fortitude
~

Bearable it may be hard

~

The bears will be leaving in the next few weeks…
only a few more weeks to peek in on, and to learn from,  these astounding animals!
I encourage you to visit that web cam for inspiring “views”
