This week has been a “feather” week.
Went hiking way up in the Pyrénées to a waterfall and found a white feather on a rock near the water. oooh i love finding feathers in unusual places.
On the way down the mountain a black feather flew across my path. hum two feathers same day..mmmm ok…
Next day I go shopping for kitchen mats (as you do) and the only set available was the feather set…right. feathers. again.
To end the week in beauty, during the visit of my favourite yearly garden exhibition in the region, the Lieurac Gardens, I luxuriated in the Plumerium.
Feather is obviously communicating with me! right?!
So I researched (googled) the symbolism, archetypal, religious, spiritual, all rational and irrational beleifs that have existed for eons, from Dream analysis to Native Shamanism and Biblical references.
Needless to say, it was very interesting reading.
So thankyou Feather for the experience. The photography of feathers will be all the more fun now.
