urbanorganica after the boys were done, she was under a thick pile of rose petals drizzled from above. scrub jay medicine is all about this moment for us. we need to adapt fast, to make laser choices & excavate our best memories for clues to what's next. for some reason we planned for this june, for years & years & years. but not july. or 2017. 2018, yes - that's Hawaii! but the next year...every option is amazing. and every option will take stretching. okay, scrub jay. we got it. #choosing

  •   ookenuh Ah man i would of kept those feathers. They are rare where im from thats why. 21h
  •   urbanorganica Oh @ookenuh I had my scissors & a bag of salt & was making prayers!! My 8 year old was like "don't do it!" 20h
  •   urbanorganica @ookenuh I also had a bit of craziness with barn owl a few years ago, so many crazy things while I had the wings & talons, finally a dream where it wanted them back. You know I buried them all together the next day. So I was nervous, even though I know how to do it right. That was all so vivid 20h

  •   urbanorganica @janaecharlotte and the actual bird, so strangely soft & alive feeling, even waiting a day. it was like she was just tired. or a pretty damsel in distress. 20h
  •   janaecharlotte She's stunning in beauty + strength ::: her presence has deep staying power. and I love the composition of your photo - the intimacy and immediacy of her. 19h
