pretty bird

today was lovely. I got to see many a friend and will tell more tomorrow. For now, however, I will share with you the beautiful little trinket that my dear friend Kate gifted me with. I am a fan of feathers. And why wouldn't, how couldn't one cherish them so? They represent taking flight, optimism, unlimited boundaries and the notion of soaring. For me, they are also romantic and reminiscent of older times, when pens were quilled and we actually listened to the little birdie that spoke in our ears. For another great image and mini dissertation on feathers, go here. And if you'd like to own one of these treasures, visit . . .
