You know that catchy line from Portlandia: “Put a bird on it”? Well, I do in fact put birds on things, namely my art, but I also add wings to people, animals, creatures, and objects.
For this “Inspire Me Thursday,” my motto is “put some wings on it.”
I created this mixed media collage in my art journal tonight to honor my “put some wings on it” tendencies, and to perhaps extract some deeper meaning from adding wings to not only images in my art, but to real live people in a symbolic way.
When I am feeling weighed down by my world, I sometimes imagine growing some wings to lift me up, to help me see a new perspective, to open my heart, and to add some lightness to an otherwise heavy worry state.
We can do this for each other, too. Whether through direct action or through sending good energy, we can send each other wings.
Try this: At least twice this weekend, find a way to give yourself wings as well as to another person. How does possessing wings make you feel? What do you notice in another person when you send them a pair of wings? Time to feel a little lighter and fly, everyone!
