Above Water Color Painting By Sarah

I painted that woman within a bear with my baby Miles and the place I was pregnant and birthed in mind and with the one I ran away from
Black Bear in mind as well. Mt Shasta is in there, the mama mountain I still revere. Click here for the rest of story.

My Global Warming show “BLUE ICE” is now on line for you to see

  • Elsa Marleys Site
  • I am working now to promote it as a vehicle for climate change on a global level. Please help support this important matter in what ever way you can.

    I started BBR so many years ago with the help of a small group of Diggers. It has grown, into its own form through many fazes. A much broader vision than my idea of an art colony dedicated to, “Earthworks’. Now in in my senior years I am gratified that it has been a training ground for so many young people who have learned the lessons of living in harmony with nature, and provided me with a large productive extended family. What ever else others can conceive of; for me the heart of the bear addresses an abiding earth. A work of Art so needed on our fragile planet. Elsa Marley October 2009

    What is Black Bear to you

    Black Bear is sacred to me
    Birth place
    Heart place
    where I go most often in my dreams

    Black Bear is in me down deep
    I bleed Black Bear each month
    I wear scars of Black Bear
    on my fingers my toes my chin
    I am Black Bear
    though I no longer liver there in body
    in spirit I am always there

    Black Bear is so familiar
    yet I can go there and discover
    things I’ve never known
    Black Bear is my home
    among many homes

    We are a family spread across the earth
    connected by a place deep in the mountains
    a place deep in our hearts
    called Black Bear
