Feathered~ Weeks Twenty Six through Twenty Nine

Welcome to the monthly Feathered Blog post. Here you can see all of the images from the Feathered Project standing on their own.  

Feathers are such interesting bits of nature.  Each one is so different, different in shape, color, weight, texture....  They are full of mystery and lore.  Beloved by so many.  Once we decided to do this project, we begin to see feathers everywhere.   At our feet on walks, tattooed on friends arms, one tiny one gently fell out of the sky, slowly, slowly, slowly, to land in Chris's outstretched hand in our yard.  

What do Feathers mean to you?  What memories do they bring up?  How do they make you feel?  What does it mean to find feathers?  Theses are just some of the things we have been thinking about while working on this project together.

We're light as a feather
Heavy, as the weather
We're light as a feather
Got you and I together ~Norah Jones

~~Feathered, Week Twenty Eight~~
“Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be...” 
― William Wordsworth

Today

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

-Mary Oliver
