Spiritual Expression

Birds are messengers to the heavens as they always fly upward. The title of this series was inspired by a passage from Terry Tempest Williams' book 'Refuge; An Unnatural History of Family and Place'.

I pray to the birds.

I pray to the birds because I believe they will carry the message of my heart upward.

I pray to them because I believe in their existence, the way their songs begin and end each day
- the invocations and benedictions of earth.

I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear.

And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.
