"From your parents you learn
love and laughter and how to
put one foot before the other.
But when books are opened
you discover you have wings." ~Helen Hayes
Wings. They've been popping up in my life a lot lately.
Have you ever had one of those spurts? Where all of a sudden you see or hear a word or symbol everywhere you look? For the past week, it's been wings for me. More specifically angel wings. Massive black wings that shimmer with subtle hues of iridescent blue. They're beautiful and they comfort me. I've been sick and some very stressful things have been going on in my life lately, but the wings help. At first it was dreams that they were wrapped around me. They showed up three nights in a row in very different dreams. Then I saw them on a man's t-shirt while I was paying for gas. Today I started reading a new book, and the main character described the very wings I had been dreaming about. The wings have my attention. I'm just waiting to see where they carry me, or when and where they'll show up next.
