I've loved birds for as long as I can remember,always enjoyed watching them in the garden as a little girl and never tire of hearing them sing, I think there's something really magical about birdsong.
I feel very drawn to use bird images in my art and I think it's about time I had a go at painting or drawing some of my own, so watch this space!
Once, when I was a girl,I found a little bird,I think it was a Sparrow,caught up in some wire in a bush. I untangled it from the bush, cupped it in my hands and carried it home. It was petrifying, feeling it's little heart beating so fast,I thought it might die of fright! I got my Dad, who I got my love of nature from, to free it of all the wire it was wrapped up in,and after checking it was OK, we set it free in the garden. I felt really privileged to have held a wild bird in my hand and to have been able to help it.
I often laugh now, when I point out a Raptor or a Raven as we drive along in the car, and my Daughter says, "Yes Mum! It's just a bird!" I don't think she gets my fascination with them! :)
Does anybody have a bird as their Totem animal? Seagulls are one of mine, along with Spiders and Ravens, but that's another story for another day, I just wondered.
