Because birds fly and we cannot, they and their feathers often represent symbols of our yearnings. Among the many themes feathers may hold for us are:
· Success and achievement
· Bridges between here and our goals, between earth and our heaven
· Oversight, ability to see all things at once (like from on high—like where birds fly)
· Freedom from: pain, oppression, suffering, heaviness of life, death, failure, our limits
These themes provide me more fodder for my art.
