Sitting vigil

I’m honoured to be able to attend the rebirthing of our Hieromum as she leaves this plane of existence with some of my TOILA sisters. She got to come home to hospice last night there was joy and the knowledge we have to let her go.

There have been many tears and much laughter and love this afternoon and evening.

When we sang the knot for her, her breathing calmed and she relaxed.

We continue tonight on this journey with her down the celestial Nile.

Deer

Queen of Arrows

The deer is seen as the sovereign of the Greenwood and a great deal of legend is attached to the White Hart.

At home in the heart of the forest and surefooted on narrow hillside paths, hinds are nurturing and protective of their young at midsummer.

A person with a gentle, tender and loving heart, whose quiet wisdom brings healing. They could have qualities of shyness and oversensitivity; difficult to get close to initially, they are loyal and deep.
