When Women Were Birds - Greeting Card


"When women were birds, we knew otherwise. We knew our greatest freedom was in taking flight at night, when we could steal the heavenly darkness for ourselves, navigating through the intelligence of stars and the constellations of our own making in the delight and terror of our uncertainty."

T.T. Williams

"But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time."

Revelation 12:14

Sirens. Sphinx. Harpies.

Women and wings are a favorite theme - we are bird, creatures neither meant to be tamed nor caged, dwelling in the shadows, awaiting winds. Mythical beings with the power to enchant, we sing for flight, longing to rediscover, to reinvent and to reclaim. Our meadows starred with flowers, we are mantic, knowing both the past and future. On windless days, be still and hear our song.

Let this work inspire you to remember what never should have been forgotten. We are out there still.
