By far my favorite in the challenge! A wonderful tribute to Bear (and VERY much a Bear kinda thing!) and a tribute to you as well, my friend! Most excellent.

Whoa, an honest-to-gosh HM as well! Does a body good to bear the soul, or is that the other way around?

Confronting, inspiring, soul-connecting. I'm sure this will touch Bear's spirit as it does mine.

This is extraordinary. In a quick once-over, easily the most powerful image in the challenge, and entirely in the spirit of me, at least as I view myself and my relationship to life. Thanks for sharing it, brother Peter.

You are my Spirit Brother: I award you the Golden Bear Paw.
