I was confounded by this to be honest. It is a picture of flowers…pretty, but not my “type”. As other members posted their pictures of birds, animals, moons and stars, I was frankly disappointed. But I stayed with it and began to see how my picture complimented and was all of a piece with the others…I began to see how without my flowers the world would be less…I began to get a glimpse of the importance of all things. At my age life big lessons are rare, and I really appreciate this one: look deeply at your disappointments and see what wisdom and beauty lies there.
A revelation! When I received my Relic for Glimpsing Vintage Photo Slide, I could not make out what it contained. At first, I thought it was an airport, with planes lined up. Then, I thought it was a harbor, with boats docked. Once I used my magnifying glass, I realized it was a picture of turtles crossing a body of water on a log and lining up on the shore. How appropriate! Turtles have been a part of my life forever. Both my husband and I have had pet turtles and our son has a huge tank with several large turtles, featuring Arthur, who has markings that make him look like he’s always smiling.
Turtles as spirit animals teach us to walk our path in peace and sticking to it with determination and serenity. Turtles teach us to stay grounded, even in moments of disturbance and chaos. Turtles remind us to slow down and pace ourselves and cultivate emotional strength and understanding. Eureka! This was made to order for me!
