"Heron ... the bridge"
This gorgeous creature was sitting casually on the bridge when my partner and I took a walk this afternoon... and he stayed right there and let me take a photo... only about 1 metre away! Wow, I admire these graceful feathered ones, and of course as one does these days ...
I googled meanings of 'grey heron' and found a bunch of things... going with the flow... patience... and grace were are few things
I found a fabulously informative blog here : Symbolism of the Heron or Egret
"Most Native American tribes took note of the heron’s inquisitiveness, curiosity and determination. As such this set the heron as a symbol of wisdom in that this creature seemed to have good judgement skills."
I was doing some thinking over these last two days as my head has been pounding with yet another head ache! and I decided to take some time to check in and ask myself some questions in relation to it (as was a wise suggestion I read in Christiane Northrup's book just this morning!!!) "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" so... I've realised I can't be giving from an empty cup... so it's time for lots of tea (haha, I already do quite a lot of that)... and tender loving care of myself... and taking time to play! There's probably a bit more to it... but enough said for this tired artist for now...
on that note... I better get to bed... a good night's sleep is marvellous for repairing cells and things!
