Everyone can use some words of wisdom during these very unique and difficult times, during 2020 and Covid 19. I researched “birds” and came across a story called "yogen no tori," introduced by the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum to the public in April. It is said to have prophesied a cholera outbreak that swept through Japan in the late 19th century and offered protection to those who prayed to it. My bird prophecy presented a message to stay positive, and share the message of hope and prayer with those who viewed him. The bird is half way in, half way out of the window. Representing sheltering in place. Hoping for a reprieve. I followed my intuition.
