I think so many of us do not see ourselves as we truly are. We have been looking in the wrong mirrors for so long, we lose our true vision and wonder why we can not see ourselves.
I did this little piece of art with no intent. The shape of a bird (sort of! ha!) emerged and I created it looking at its reflection.
I kept referring to it in my mind as a “Bird of Paradise Seeking its Reflection”. And, I thought, how wonderful is that. If even a Bird of Paradise must bend over to truly look at itself in the reflecting pool, what am I willing to do to truly look at myself?
How willing am I to find a true reflecting surface and give up my flight for a moment to bend down and really see that I am paradise?
Find true mirrors and find your true reflection.
Until I did research, I did not know there are Birds of Paradise flowers. Surprisingly (at least from what I could tell) the flowers are orange and blue- somewhat like the drawing.
