Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend.
Today I have chosen a short poetic quote that I found in the Taschen Book of Symbols. If you haven’t heard of it this is a great coffee table book – full of intriguing things. When we did the creative writing session on goldfinches I decided to look up birds in the symbol book, as I was thinking about the totem task (see previous session details) and all the beautiful colours that birds carry.
I stumbled upon this gorgeous poetic quote:
‘Know that the psyche has it’s own
Fame, whether known or not, that
Soul can flame like feathers of a bird
Grow into your own plumage, brightly,
So that any tree is a marvellous city.’James Applewhite: Prayer for My Son
I’ve been thinking that this is a delicious way to start the week! To be bold and brave and beautiful. To be yourself and make the most of any given situation. Inspiration from nature!
I hope to see you all on Wednesday, this week’s class is all about crows (not the most colourful birds but certainly very interesting)!
