Papa Bear -- How the
Papa Bear is the
name folks gave to my crazy Uncle Ernie.
Uncle Ernie lived in
my grandmother's attic.
When he was pretending to be Papa Bear,
was a great story teller.
He told stories
about events that he experienced
when he entered the mini-worlds
he found in an old trunk
in in my grandma's attic.
Everybody said he was crazy,

,except me ever bothered to
learned how to see into these
But, I didn't say anything to anybody 'cause,

needed a care taker,
but I always said, "Sure,

he whispered the

When he did that, he'd become intimately connected to
whatever he touched. and an invisible being
called Papa Beare.
would impress Uncle Ernie mind with a story about
what he had touched,
Uncle Ernie would receive pictures, sounds,
tastes, smells, and tactile
Papa Beare answered the
questions that Uncle Ernie aked.
What I still get
today are the same impressions and stories like
journeys and my original journeys with Papa Bear.
