Flute Finds Home in Bergamo Italy…

 

 

Recently I sold this Walnut flute to a new client who lives in Bergamo Italy.  I always am humbled when someone likes one of my flutes enough to spend their hard earned money on one.  This flute shares a special journey that has touched my heart and one that I would like to share with all of you.  This particular flute I have liked from the minute I started to shape it.  Not really sure why but it was one of my favorites that I made this year.  It sounds great and looks good to boot.

Over a period of several weeks I have exchanged emails with a man I now call my friend.  Both before he purchased the flute and after the sale we both struggled though the translations that Google so graciously provided.  Italian to English and English to Italian.  It always surprises me when I meet people from other countries that have a love of our Native American Heritage that is truly part of who we are as Americans and even more impressive to know they have taken the time learn so much about our past.  Davide is one of those special people.

During the flute’s transit time from Wyoming to Bergamo he share with me his desire, no – his “dream” to play a Native American Style flute in a very special place that meant so much to his family.  A place where he and his father would visit and spend time together and today it is the final resting place of his father.  His dream as he shared with me was to find a day of solitude and take with him his new flute and play songs in honor of his father.  Just he and the spirit of his father.  By his descriptions in his previous emails I thought I had a pretty good vision of this place in my mind.  Yet when I saw the pictures he sent to me of this day it did in some weird way seem familiar to me even though I knew it was a place thousands of miles away from Wyoming.

A few days ago I received a follow up email from Davide along with some images of his day spent in this very special place.  He finally received his new flute he gathered some personal things together and picked a day to journey to this place.  As you can see from these pictures it appears to be a cold day which he did confirm in his message to me.  Aside from the cold and even colder hands he sat down and started to play.

It is times like these that confirm to me the healing properties of these very special wind instruments.  Davide shared that it was very quite and still when he sat down to play.  As he started to play his flute he noticed that there were a vibrations coming across the water and to him he imagined this to mean vibrations of joy.  To be truthful I am not sure exactly how long he stayed in this place on this day but it was clear from his email to me that it met all of his dreams and expectation for this special occasion.

Although I do not have any recordings of this day I am sure the music Davide played hit the mark as witnessed by the vibrations upon the water.  As a flute builder there is no better compliment than when a client shares a story like this with me.  This is real and it is meaningful to all who have been part of this personal journey.  My heart is full knowing that a flute that I have created with my hands right here in Wyoming has made such a long journey to a place that has brought in some small way a healing to another human being so far way.

Christmas Grizzly Ornament -The Chriszly

Hand Crafted Christmas Tree Ornament

We have decided to have some real fun with our art and create our first Jackson Hole Tim Christmas Tree Ornament.  Too many people rush through the Holidays forgetting how fun the simple things can be.  Living in Wyoming surrounded by forests of Christmas trees, cold Fall evenings and almost always a White Christmas Day is guaranteed.  Nothing better than a decorated Christmas Tree, a fire and family.

2018 Christmas Grizzly Ornament

Beginning this Holiday Season each year we are going to create one whimsical Christmas Tree ornament here in our shop to help celebrate the Christmas Season.  Simply the most wonderful time of year.  This year, our first, we have decided to focus on the Grizzly Bear.  So much attention has been brought to forest Bruin that we thought it would be a great first year ornament.

Completely hand crafted by artist Timothy Jennings here in our shop in Afton Wyoming no two Chriszly’s are the same.  Crafted from American Black Walnut and finished with a natural satin look each bear will ship in it’s own box.  Hang your new Chriszly Bear on your tree this Christmas and share a bit of joy from Wyoming.

Because each bear is hand made there will be a limited quantity so get your order in soon.  We will begin shipping our first Chriszlys the 1st of November.  This is an ornament that should last a lifetime and then some.  As we approach Christmas of 2018 remember what this day is all about.  Honor God, Honor Family, Honor Friends and may the Joy of Peace be will all of you!  Merry Christmas!

$24.95 each plus Shipping

Morning Coffee Meditation… Janee Falls

Once again we ventured out here in Afton Wyoming.  Coffee in tow… A truly magical place!  Around ever bend is another surprise by Mother Earth.  This brief vignette is a moment in time experiencing the wonder of Janee Falls.  A magical little spot on the road up what locals call Swift Creek.   As an added treat imagine sitting in this spot and playing your Native American style flute as you meditate you troubles away.  Flute music is played and composed by Brock Jennings… a little song he calls “CHAKRA”… enjoy.

Morning Coffee Meditation

Morning Coffee Meditation… Filmed on the Gros Ventre River north of Jackson Wyoming

I really have enjoyed writing my Morning Coffee posts over the years and will continue to do so.  I love sharing our little Wyoming adventures we take from time to time.  I want to add something new to the mix now.  Often when I travel around the Yellowstone Basin with a cup of joe in my hands I will stop and enjoy moments of time at different places that reach out and speak to me.  I love visiting the rivers and streams in our area as I find that the sound of the moving water helps calm my spirit.  Not to mention the eye candy that surrounds me daily.

Morning Coffee Meditation will be 1 minute+ or so snippets of time taken at special locations around Wyoming.  Nothing added and nothing taken away.  Just one minute+ of recorded time in nature as it exists at that moment.  I would like to bring a sense of calm and maybe even a smile to your face from time to time.

Morning Coffee

It is time again to get back to my Morning Coffee posts.  One of the most enjoyable things I have done when it comes to blogging is simply sharing one of my daily adventures which starts each morning with a great cup of coffee.

For those of you who know me know that last year we moved from Jackson Wyoming to Afton Wyoming in order to obtain horse property for our daughter.  Although we now live in the Star Valley area Jackson is a frequent adventure in itself.

For those of you who may be new to our blog posts Star Valley is rich in western history.  It was for centuries a place with the Native American people who lived within travel distance came to hunt and fish during the summer months.  Then in the mid to late 1800’s the area was settled by those heading west.

The Oregon Trail in its many facets came right through was is now our back yard.  On this morning I decided to adventure not far from my home to an old homestead I pass all the time.  Each time I pass by I say to my wife and myself that I need to stop and take a few photographs.  Although I really have no idea of the history of this quint yet humble home I just love it’s setting.

I wonder by whom and when this home was built.  What about the large tree setting next to the this humble cabin?  Did the family that built it plant it and if so was it for shade or maybe just aesthetics.  Did they have children and if so whatever happened to them?  As you can see today it is a much different place.  The home is empty and the stories that must have surely been told throughout the years are now secrets of this lonely yet beautiful setting.

Wyoming is truly a magical place.  Some great adventure abound just about everywhere in the state.  Star Valley is rich in Western History some good and some not so good.  But on this morning I did stop and take the time to watch the sunrise, enjoy more than one cup of coffee, ponder the past and took some pictures… enjoy.

Abby Gershuny & Brock Jennings Record Nickel Creek Cover…

Abby Gershuny
Abby Gershuny

A couple of years have past since we have written anything about two of our local favorite music artists.  Abby Gershuney has stayed with us several time over the past years and has truly become family.  Abby ha worked her magic at the Jackson Hole Playhouse many time over the years and is currently performing in St. George Utah at Tuacahn Center for the Arts for the 2018 summer shows..  Abby can sing, dance, act… she can do it all but when she sings she makes people like me smile.

Brock Jennings

Many of you who know us know our son Brock Jennings.  Brock is another amazingly talented singer song writer and he has an amazing voice.  Abby was staying with over the Christmas Holiday while she worked for the playhouse a couple of winters ago.  Not sure why they do but they waited until the last day to actually lay down some tracks.  Abby had to return to New York City for while.

One of the tracks they laid down was not one of their own but a cover from Nickel Creek titled “When You Come Back Down”.  Although this is a rough, uncut, unfinished track  I wanted to share this with all of you again.  I hope you like it.  If you do please let us know we would love to see these two play this summer here in Jackson Hole and maybe some other areas too.
