Mythical Creatures
When I am present in the city, I can hear bird song and with every flap of the wing the urban noises disappear. I feel alive, I feel life, I feel hope. For many centuries birds have been seen as mythical creatures. They travel with messages, go on quests with heroes and lead both Shamans to the Spirit world and dead souls to the Beyond. In Celtic mythology, ravens are seen as divinatory birds, while eagles, geese and the humble wren also had their own prophetic powers. The patterns and behaviours of birds have been studied as oracles throughout the years. I find myself captivated by their majesties and intrigued by their presence in the moment.
