Thank you, Jerry Seinfeld, for the insightful and fun Bee Movie, and the role model of Barry the Bee! Why does Barry hold his thumb and index finger the same way as the Washburn University Icabod mascot in the sculpture below?
Below is the real Helen Stucky Weaver that attended Washburn University 37 years before this photo was taken. Her live interactive human sculpture humor photo with the sculpture is part of the Bee Attitudes lesson.
The symbolic L made by the thumb and index finger could stand for Love and Logic working in conjunction with the Law and Loopholes that allow us to weave in the best health and wellness practices so everyone can be a winner...no matter if mean spirited people that might have jeered and called someone a Loser.
A little factoid: Icabod was the name of the child in the Bible born to Philahas when her husband and father-in-law dropped dead because the Arc of the Covenant was stolen. She said, "Icabod means without the Glory of God".
The Sisters "Su, Sue, and Sioux"... and all the others costumed characters that work with them as part of the "Sister Sues' Monkey Business...Humor for the Health of It!" all are advocates pointing out the glory of God and helping people to reclaim wellness as their birthright. We always want to use Love and Logic for the full truth to come out and set people onto the right paths to restorative justice.
The Praire Toothfairy, another Sister Sue, wears a special gift crown that was made by Dr Richard Bergen, the same sculptor of Icabod, Ad Astra, Pioneer Woman, Compassion, Trifinity, the Pony Express Rider...and a total of 43 sculptures. Only two of Dr Bergen's sculptures have the feet that Helen was asked to pose for while an art student of Dr. Bergen's at Marymount College in Salina, Kansas in 1974. Like she did in Jr High Journalism class, Helen pitched an Exchange program with the rival school's journalism class so that the student's would write about the common experiences to being a member of the other school. In college, she was part of the force to get Kansas Wesleyan University and Marymount College to cooperate and allow students to take courses at either school when it was not offered at the one they would be graduating from.
Is it just a coincidence or is it a "God thing" that Dr Bergen was the itinerate art teacher for all public school students in Salina when Helen was in 6th grade and that his wife, LuAnn, was the Middle School Librarian that helped save Helen from the despairs of her parent's divorce when she was 13 years old by taking her under her wing and using Helen's love of the arts to help her improve her mood and her reading. It was something that would become woven with Helen's nursing practice and her art of parenting and add tools to her self-care for wellness and resiliency.
Little did Dr Bergen or Helen know that she would be called to join other modern Pioneers to co-develop a system of equality and compassion that supported and connected volunteers to arts and sciences of health and wellness research and resources throughout the lifespan and between communities around the globe.

The Icabod mascot sculpture wasn't a reality in 1979 when Helen became "an Icabod" that got an "A" in "Wholistic Wellness", a graduate level course from Washburn University. She returned to Salina to bloom "Olde McDonald's Oasis", the health edutainment food booth as the capstone project for the course and to serve the families attending the family-friendly Smoky Hill River Arts and Crafts Festival...a three day health edutainment food booth that is the same model of the Wellness Weavers system that both uses and cares for the volunteers and partners with businesses is a Community Service-Learning Health and Wellness work in progress with a physical campus in Waterville, Kansas and a virtual campus on the Internet that is co-developing the Live Well Health and Wellness Cooperative Communities within the TimeKeeper Banking Community network.
If you love to interact and collaborate to innovate, click here for a FREE Ticket for the opportunity to join a free web-based "test flight" to work on the process "aboard the Wellness Weavers Green STARship Enterprise" using the Cisco WebEx Enterprise Event Center account. The set up can help demonstrate a form for Green Court, the friendly place where the intent is to help family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and citizens work out the communication blocks that they have with each other.
Some of those communication blocks reveal that one person or a group of people are actually behaving badly and set someone up deliberately to fail or to abuse, neglect, and exploit them with half-truths, and the marketing plan to spread the pack of lies.
Those cases are referred to our friends the social justice lawyers that have real bills to pay and may require some significant case to put together a team sufficient to out last the lawyers that are looking for loop holes and ways to get their guilty clients to pay them lots of money.
The Wellness Weavers Way helps even lawyers that have been enjoying the lifestyle that only money could buy, have a way to cut back their expenses and have legal ways to save money putting their bikes, boats, yachts, planes, trains and automobiles and extra homes into safe service. That part of the Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network will get set up when we have the lawyers and Certified Public Accounts that understand how to get the infrastructure set up to operate in full compliance with the law.
