Let the beauty we love
be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways
I've always felt that finding a feather upon your path is a sign & I always stop and say a prayer of gratitude when I come across one.
On this past weekend's walk, the camera was turned off, lens was back on and we were on our way home when we came across this lovely lone white swan feather.
Instead of cropping the photo, I decided to leave it just as it had been taken, thinking how beautiful it looked amongst leaves and twigs and dirt.
I remember reading that it is believed in many cultures that finding a feather upon your path was a sign of encouragement ~ Birds being creatures of the sky (Heavens). The hollow shaft of the feather allowing for prayers said, to rise up through the shaft.
~May you find beauty all around you~
