feathers -

i have read a lot about them lately

someone who found a feather recently said it meant change

i love this poem by emily dickinson - hope is the thing with feathers...


Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

It is believed that if you find a feather on your path it may be a sign of encouragement as you march along your path.

It also means lighten up; find a feather, change your thoughts, be grateful for the moment - find joy -
