Puttering around in the CG world with the help of DAZ and GIMP.<br /> <br /> I've been asked occasionally about my user name and what it means.<br /> <br /> When I was a baby, my great-grandmother (Cherokee, Eastern Band) would sometimes babysit me as my mother would go to work. She said I would howl and cry like a lost coyote pup for quite awhile after she left. The number seven is also sacred to the Cherokee... so I combined them into CoyoteSeven to honor my great-grandmother and my heritage.<br /> <br /> After having survived an almost fatal heart attack and stroke in 1997, I began to really see how sweet and precious the gift of life can be. I live each day as if it will be my last (because it could be) and thank God for His mercy and love. <br /> <br /> As I told gToon (Ricky) in my interview for October 2016 Artist of the Month:<br /> " I may be getting older, but in my mind, I am that child that still finds magic, wonder and miracles in this world. I pray I NEVER lose that part of me."<br /> <br /> Take each day as it comes... the good, the bad and the ugly and be thankful for it. Live life, do what you love and never stop dreaming.
