Here are my Rita Mae Brown letters and Bear messages. The first couple RMB letters explain their purpose. They are sent to her via the US Postal Service and I am forever grateful to her for allowing the letters to flow. I am adding some fiction shorts now on the "Writings" page. I hope you find something here of significance, something that brightens your day, entertains you, or touches you in some way. All my best to you.

Rainbow Bear Light Dancer Messages from Ten Bears began as well wishes from one friend to another, both with Bear Indian guides. Both believing in something a little beyond the here and now. Today, they are sent your way, to you. May whatever message you read today, be yours also.
Oh, wf stands for wonderful friend. Thank you for joining us.
Enchanting Rainbow Bear Light Dancer,
The dawn brings sunlight to brighten our world, as
eternally promised. May you find friendship and kinship in every corner of your
day, assistance for wishes fulfilled.
Build your day’s foundation, confident in your strength and
trusting in your vision for your life’s journey. You will overcome every
obstacle. You will learn and grow from every struggle, as the butterfly gains
the strength it will need when it struggles to free itself from the cocoon, you
too will gain insight and power from the challenges before you.
Your path has brought you here, where all your previous
struggles led you to being the person that you are, complete with the gifts
that you have received and the gifts you have given, too numerous to count.
Seize the day, whatever it may bring, it is yours to sculpt.
Sending you life’s warm embrace,
Your wf Ten Bears
Dear Rainbow Bear Light Dancer,
The wind joined me on my walk. I asked if it was the same
wind that visited you and it danced around me in delight. “I am the wind, all
wind”, it responded, “how could I not be the ‘same’ wind?” In this life we are
taught that distance in time and physical space create a divide. There is no
divide in the flow of energy. The wind reminds me of that. Walk with the wind
wherever you go. Feel it bring my “hello” as it reminds you of your connection
to everything else.

Precious Bear Light Dancer,
Some days bring their joy to us and in others simply present
a platform for us to make our own contribution. Each day, a friend in itself,
offers all it can and sometimes it is up to us to return the friendship. If
that I could wish you only joy, peace and all that is good, to have it shower
down upon you, I would. Yet I would be remiss if I did not also wish you
strength and wisdom to know when that joy must come from within you and pour
So many times in your life, your gentle smile has brought
joy, comfort and consolation to others. And at times in your life, when comfort
would be welcomed by you, it is continually requested of you, sometimes even by
those creating the circumstances that cause you to need comforting. As we give
we receive. The comfort you offer may appear to be for others, but it returns
to you in the form of peace within your own heart. It returns with the wind’s
gentle caress and playful push. It is showered down upon you in the starlight.
It is brought to you in words from a new friend and embraces from old friends.
It is abundant. Give freely of it and know that it is being returned to you.
Know that I am with you, wherever you are, sent to return comfort to you equal
to that which you give.
With blessings to you,
Your wf Ten Bears
Dear Bear Light Dancer Norene,
Today, as the sun is rising, may you feel comfort from the
embrace of your friends and family. We are walking with you every day. Smiling
down from heaven, sending smiles your way from earth, Joy from the past and
moments to Explore from your future, all as much yours as we, ourselves, are.
Thank you for receiving these daily reminders in the spirit they are sent, with
hope and appreciation for the person you are and all the enchanting qualities

Your wf Ten Bears
Maravilloso Bear Light Dancer,
Let the day embrace you. Let the day tell you how precious
you are. In each moment we move forward in life. They practically run past us.
Catch a few. Hold them in your hands, in your heart and in your mind by marking
their presence with your joy, your laughter and your words. Enjoy them. Smile
They are numerous, like the minions in Despicable me. The
minions are adorable, fun, happy, eager to move on to any and every task with
glee. Your moments are that way. They appear automatically, eager to please,
open to suggestion, wide eyed with wonder and possibility. And no matter what
happens in each moment, the next will pop up, “I’m here! My turn!” Enjoy your
moments. They are as precious as you are.
With warm embraces and gratitude for you,
Your wf Ten Bears
Dearest Bear Light Dancer,
You have come a long way and the journey hasn’t always been
easy. Fortunately for you and those near you, you have weathered the storms and
come to today a wiser, more loving, kinder soul who cherishes this life
experience, despite the hardships. The hurdles you face now are small potatoes
compared to those you have taken head on in your past. And, because of your
past and who you have become, opportunities will continue to present themselves
to you. Very soon you will see that this hurdle, difficult as it may be today,
was a step towards something better, a better place for you, and ultimately an
even better you.
The world is your oyster right now.

Wonderful Friend Bear Light Dancer,
Life tosses us into wild and crazy
scenarios and sometimes we wonder what’s going on, trying to piece together
reason and logic into life’s plan for us. Let go of logic and reason for today.
Feel the freedom that comes with living in the moment. Allow the day to be wild
and unpredictable. Enjoy each kernel of spontaneity. Play.
Look at anyone that crosses your path
today. Truly look at them, their life, their moments shared with you. Whether
they are kind or not, whether your time together is brief or annoyingly long,
wish them well. Watch as your well wishes return to you at days end in myriad
Your wf forever more,
Bear Light Dancer,
tomorrow, I wish for you a day that delights you at every turn. May sincere
embraces and truth fill your day, may the earth hold you and the wind whisper
are a child of light. Shine on.

Today I wish you a day filled with
tactile pleasures, whether from a delicate touch or the feeling of accomplishment when you write a verse or cook a meal,
feeling your hands create, movement and force, flowing through you, bringing forth
sustenance of body and soul. Enjoy the wind’s caress, the sun’s warmth and the
earth’s strong platform beneath your feet, your life’s stage, complete with
bold lighting, sound effects and supporting characters, of which I am honored
to be one.
