Being with the idea that a totem animal may choose you … heron has made herself known to me. I notice her traits .. a lone fisher, standing for long periods at the edge of the river… She can stick her neck right out.. and bring it back down in close to herself and her own heart, she's elegant and strong. (I'm mentioned her here before) I was just drawn to gather a selection of pictures depicitng her various qualities… I'm in need of a reminder, and some strength to stick my own neck out again, but realising it is in the very nature of my being also, to snuggle back down, and go inward. Heading further down the introversion scale than perhaps I used to, is this a change of age thing.. I wonder, or is there just a lot more being spoken about this, so we don't have to feel so strange that we are energised by time spent alone, and being with others takes energy sometimes.
Strong, standing ever so tall, eyes alert not missing a thing.
sometimes it is a lone stance… often actually
sometimes a spirit friend stands alongside
I had no idea their nests could look like this
(Ilovegoogleimagesforthis) and nesting near a neighbour, who knew?
then there is this, this ability to lift up some fantastic wings
and fly away.. just fly. away.
