Jan. 1

Happy New Year! I'm attaching a picture of a white tailed deer we saw in the small strip of woods behind my house. She is lovely. I hope you can make her out among the scrub and branches. According to myth and legend, deer are supposed to bring messages from God. They symbolize sensitivity to problems and quiet, caring listening. Here is a list of what is believed to be their wisdom:
  • Gentleness in word, thought and touch
  • Ability to listen
  • Grace and appreciation for the beauty of balance
  • Understanding of what's necessary for survival
  • Power of gratitude and giving
  • Ability to sacrifice for the higher good
  • Connection to the woodland goddess
  • Alternative paths to a goal
Nice thoughts for the new year. cheers~
