Choice and Freedom at the Spring Equinox

Tree of Life by Mark Ryden
Happy Spring Equinox to you all today! This is Luna, a beautiful white speckled pigeon that has taken up residence with us in the week leading up to the Equinox. She is wild but eats from our hand - and nothing could please or teach me more at the moment:  a wild creature that chooses to live with us and comes and goes as she chooses. I hope that this Spring Equinox brings a new sense of freedom and choice as you embrace the balance between the security of home and spreading your wings in the wild world beyond.
