From the to the and the countless classes you’ve taught – those who’ve crossed your path are always the better for it. Cheers to all that you are & do!
May the flocks be with you!
It seemed the Turkey Vultures circling overhead were a constant feature in the skies of both Oregon & Texas this year. Time after time they flew into frame. Eventually this made me curious about their symbolism, so I did a little research.
Known as the GOLDEN PURIFIER these birds remind us that dirty jobs done in service of Mother Earth bear great gifts. The vulture does not hunt or expend excessive energy. Rather, when needed, it soars above limitation & seizes the resources already available. Patiently riding the wind & sensing the perfect moment to descend from higher awareness this creature is rewarded with sustenance as it purifies it's surroundings.
Some would say, when this bird appears "You are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle…" Sounds like good advice to me – I'll take it!
For curious types …

I love this Frank Gehry addition to the reinvigorated downtown Los Angeles area, such a fantastically unique design! 20 years ago one wouldn't dream of heading into the heart of the city for anything other than business. Great to see some of the original architecture being brought back to life for a new pulse on the old beat.
