Story Behind the Drawing
How do animals know when to awake from hibernation, you ask? Long ago, when the Rocky Mountains were still being formed, a black bear created a special clock and hid it in deep within the cascading slopes. In doing so, he created a subconscious pulse throughout all of nature — a ticking of time that can only be felt by those who choose to hear it. This pulse signals to hibernating animals when it is time to awaken from their deep slumber — a day which has aptly been named “Awakening Day.” On this day, animals dress in their most festive garments, and trumpet flowers join in a beautiful chorus, all to celebrate the coming spring.
