NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED WEEKLY ON WEDNESDAY - WEBSITE UPDATED THURSDAY

Life, as I see it: Moments in time

Home Opinions Life, as I see it: Moments in time
There are those moments in time that you don’t forget. 

About 25 years ago I was a fledgling writer trying to make my way as a journalist and a publicist. About that time, a young man named Ken Hennicks wanted to make a movie in North Dakota. Ken took a chance on me and turned over to me the media coverage for the film.

He brought with him some actors from New York, but he also searched for talent in North Dakota. That’s when he found a young Native American flute player and traditional storyteller, Keith Bear, from New Town, ND.

Since that time, Keith has traveled the world playing his music and telling his stories. There is a magic about him that draws others to him.

To me he has become my brother.

This past week, I was blessed to be in the audience as the now gray-haired Keith Bear was inducted into the North Dakota Native American Hall of Honor. 

He was eloquent and gracious as he accepted the award. 

It was one of those moments in time as I watched, remembering when we first met so many years ago. I remembered the times over the many years that we have shared. There have been happy celebrations and times of putting loved ones to rest. 

But, each moment, a moment in time has bonded us as family.

We were also blessed that our other forever friend and brother Gary Teragawa came from Georgia to Bismarck to honor Keith.

It has been a week of remembrance of longtime friends and celebration of young life as well.

We celebrated granddaughter Lea’s 10th birthday. 

We are so proud of the beautiful young lady she is becoming. 

The blessings are plentiful this week.

Life is good today.
