1. We say the words "mixed emotions," but we allow very little room in our American culture to actually feel more than one emotion at a time. I hardly ever feel exclusively one way about anything, do you?

2. There is rarely a time when I'm in my studio gazing out the window that I do not see a hawk sitting in a tree. I'm going to accept that the hawk is my sprit animal. I'll be doing some research about this, so stay tuned. If you have any hawk spirit animal knowledge, please drop some science in the comments. I will add that the super tree hugger/NorCal feel of this is not lost on me.

3. Often times the lessons we are trying to learn are unfolding right before our very eyes in metaphor. Gaze softly.
