The trickster archetype (our black-garbed avian) exists to question, to cause us to question and not accept things blindly. This meshes nicely with one of The Four Agreements - "don't make assumptions."
When a way of thinking becomes outmoded and needs to be torn down and rebuilt, trickster appears. If you're like me, the first response to the mere suggestion of tearing down and rebuilding the ways you are thinking is to dig in your heels and furrow your brows. I chuckle as I write this, because I'm learning that these responses are exactly the clue that says - yep, girl, this is what you need to dive into. - take a breath and get on with it already. Dropping the resistance makes everything easier.

Jen, so much to explore. So much magic, mastery, and mystery to plumb. And the light you've captured! I am agog. And fired up!

Dotty! Thank you my friend. I can't wait to see what your fired-upedness creates! xoxoxox

I love this painting! Perfect colors and shapes! It has power and makes me think it is here to deliver news or in this case force you to change how you look at something. The blogpost is fascinating as well. One I will do some research on for sure.

Just pops out from the background. Love the drips and drops and collaged moon! We don't have, or I haven't spotted any, black crows, but we have lots of the hooded variety. Saw one at the pool this summer take out a closed bag of potato chips from a kid's backpack and have a feast! Sometimes putting a pecan nut on the road and wait for a car to crack it!

Carol, I had to google hooded crows to see what they looked like! Rather an elegant bird compared with our behemoth crows here. Absolutely lovely!
