From When Women Were Birds: 54 Variations on Voice by Terry Tempest Williams:
"Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated."
Perhaps it's time to re-claim our wings and song, men and women alike.
The magical imagery today is by Austrian digital artist Christian Schloe.
