  2. Wow. Gorgeous, Hedy!

  3. When you find feathers upon your path it could be taken to mean that you are on a higher spiritual path (whether you accept it or not), and it may be a sign of encouragement as you philosophically travel on this path.

    • Thank you kindly Urban…feathers have always been fascinating to me…on whatever path I’m on…I collected them when I was a girl…and I’ve often dreamt I can fly…they are magic to me…and soft…and I work at staying soft and open hearted 🤓☺️ I appreciate the connections you share with me Urban ~ sending you all good things for a joyful day ☺️🤓 hedy ✌️

  4. Lovely textures and repetitions. Thanks Hedy 💛

  10. The feather studies are full of tenderness, Hedy. It appears that you were immersed in it all! How fitting the “quote” is, too.

    • well thank you…yes they are soft…and yes it’s been inside time with these brutal cold temperatures…-30 to -35 isn’t cutting it for being outside but soon it will be spring…and now all those nasty beetles are dead so our trees will be happy ☺️🤓✌️ I’ll write you yet Lynn…being a 👵🏻 is a full time job 😂 😊
