Miss Leesa sings to the children in her classes each and every day and they love it!

So much so that their parents started asking Miss Leesa to record her songs so that the children could listen to them when they weren't at day care.  So that's just what we did!  Miss Leesa encourages children to sing along, tap their toes, use their imagination and have fun!   And, as they listen they also learn about counting, the alphabet, word meanings, and much more!  There are also some soothing ballads for quiet listening times.

    ...A Little Big Bamboo History... By Zina Tane

Why the Giraffe?  Totems have a funny way of finding people.  For us, it all started when we lived at The Notch.  The Notch itself was a magical place where many people gathered to play music and make memories.  Freedom of expression was the fuel and creativity was the energy.  After a 1999 spring storm, a rather large limb had fallen off one of the crabapple trees and we were going to cut it up for lengths to burn in the wood stove.   While flipping it over to get it into a cutting position, we were startled to see the image of a deer appear.  With a little help from my chainsaw and some weeds for a tail, a sculpture was born!  We placed it on our front lawn for everyone to enjoy.  Unfortunately someone enjoyed it too much and after a few weeks, it disappeared.  But the seed was planted and the next time a storm gave us a large branch from the horse chestnut tree we turned it around looking for another shape to be born and that shape was a giraffe!  Again, with a little help from my chainsaw we were able to create a sturdy 9 foot statue that graced our lawn (in our backyard this time) and amazed visiting Notchers.  From there it was an easy path to incorporate giraffes into our promotions and into our lives.  When we got married we received all shapes and sizes of giraffes which added to our own growing collection.  We like to think that the giraffe found a home with us because we were use to sticking our necks out to welcome so many people to The Notch and into the creative world we promoted.   When we moved to Killingworth we were going to leave the giraffe in it's native habitat but our friend Frankie A. wouldn't hear of it.  With his help we hoisted the sculpture onto the back of his pickup and with a lot of cushioning and careful driving we brought it to Tane Lane.  It's getting a little rickety and probably won't last much longer, but we know that when it finally returns to the earth it's legacy will continue on for as long as we all remember.


Update on history:  A couple of years after moving to Tane Lane in 2001 the giraffe statue did indeed return to the earth.  I planted a beautiful tree next to the spot it fell down upon and that tree is now thriving.  We also placed our granddaughters swing set right over the spot and so the energy and vibrations of love that were once inside that giraffe statue continue to this day .

In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments,
the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people,
to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.
Leo Tolstoy, author (1828-1910)

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. 
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. 
This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. 
Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is;
I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action.  
It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
