"All the Woulda Coulda Shouldas layin' in the sun talking about the things they woulda coulda shoulda done Then all the woulda coulda shouldas they all ran away and hid from one little did." -Shel SIlverstein In nordic tradition, the god Oslin had two ravens named Thought and Memory. Every day he would send out his ravens to learn everything that was going on in the world, and they would come back and report it to him. This is how they got the reputation as being messengers. As a journalist, it rings true to me. Over time, the raven got a reputation as being the messenger of death. So I tied it in to the poem Woulda Coulda Shoulda to mean that I can't live life remembering those who died and the things I woulda coulda shoulda done with them. It's also to symbolise that I should just DO things instead of sitting around, because you never know when the messenger of death will be call
Larger - Happy Feathery Friday! - Pics never shown on flickr. This was the first photo that I ever had published - in California Coast and Ocean Magazine. It was so noisy (taken in incredible fog) I shrunk it down and turned it into a black and white. Yesterday I think this photo received the ultimate honor - someone from Britain wrote and asked for the original, which he plans to use as a tattoo for himself. (I'll post the pic when I get it!). :-) I'm a big fan of ravens - my "totem" animal is a raven. Here's a a northwest coast Haida story I sent to scarecrow/naturefoto/Rien who also loves Ravens. Check it out! :-) Have a great weekend!
This concept turned out nothing like I'd wanted it too.
But I'm far far too tired to keep going.
:/ Maybe I'll do a "take 2" someday...
For now... happy Day 54. :)
