Wing and a prayer

Here another day with birds.  The author intersperses animals throughout the deck and doesn't confine any certain animal to any particular element.  Today cups, yesterday wands, before that pentacles.  Lots of birds are the wing, with the seasons changing.  Flying towards warmer destinations.

After I was hurt a few years ago, as part of my healing journey I worked with an Energy Healer for months.  I believe that it really did help a lot.  The thing is she had two giant parrots in cages in her home.  Her home had an extended breakfast nook off kitchen and it was there they lived in cages.  I don't think we should keep animals in cages for our enjoyment, but given this gal was a more 'spiritual' type of person I figured they must been rescued animals and she cared for them. The birds were quite vocal and one day they were even more so than others.  I commented on it and she said she had not let them out of their cages recently because she needed to clip their wings to keep them from flying about.  I couldn't go back.  Just like that my time with her was done.
The promised happiness of the rainbow is different for everyone.
Last night I watched Nature on PBS that featured hummingbirds, that thankfully, were flying free and allowed to live their lives their way.

  1. I know many pet owner cite safety as a reason to do such things, but it doesn't seem right to me either. As an indoor cat owner, I've heard others suggest I have my two declawed, which makes me shudder. I think perhaps we want to make things easier on ourselves.

    1. I had a cat years ago and I could not declaw her, it made me shutter to think about the pain it would cause her. I have to restate, I lived with the cat, she pretty much ran the place, I was just there to get her fresh water, food, treats and a bit of attention when she wanted it.

    Mu husband has a strong bond with a pigeon. Whenever he opens the door of his balcony, it will fly towards him to asking for food which then it will eat out of his hand

    1. I think we should share the Earth with all creatures, not own them. To clip those birds wings and keep them. It just keeps encouraging others to enslave other creatures to become pets.

  3. we always have a number of hummer feeders here. Mostly because none of them get along with any others. If they were bigger they'd be quite frightening :)

    1. On the show, they said hummingbirds have adapted on the Pacific coast and some now stay year around because of the temperate weather. Not here. I saw one at a feeder about a week ago and wondered why the bird was so late getting out of town.
