The bird spiraling into the heart was inspired during a ceremony many years ago. It is a scratch drawing; the cardstock is black and the ink is easily scratched off with tools to reveal the white underneath, which I painted. I was told to scratch off and reveal my soul purpose. This image came to me in a trance state and only later did I understand its significance. The bird is a universal symbol for the soul and for freedom. My maiden name is Vogel, which means “bird” in German, so I come from the Bird Family. And now I actually fly high in the sky in a hang glider, literally with other birds. My purpose is to spiral into unconditional love on wings of freedom!
