Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
& sings the tune without the words,
& never stops at all

Emily Dickinson

I’ve always had an attraction to feathers. I think it stems back to my childhood, throwing them up in the air only to watch them float down, so effortlessly & without direction. Perhaps though, it is my American Indian Heritage that draws me to them, either way when I think of them my heart lightens a little. As many of you know I recently gave birth to our second son, Joel. For this occasion I made a labor bracelet with this charm as it’s focal point. I wanted it to be a reminder of what my ancestors endured, how strong & brave the women must have been. I wanted to use that energy to guide me through his birth but I also wanted the charm to remind me that no matter which way the wind of labor would take me, I could trust it. I wear the charm around my neck now, it reminds me to try to keep my heart light & bend with the gusts of each passing day.

What is your strength symbol & how did it become so?
