This is what I’ve called “Tillie’s Candle”, there are two in the series. of course, it is a feather….and from a friend who’s dear little quarrion bird is called Tillie, up til recently we all thought Tillie was a little girl, it turns out she is a boy. What can we learn from this, I pondered. Perhaps that we can embrace whatever a person is, no matter what. Perhaps this little image, is a good one, to say sorry to someone, like a white flag…a white feather….I think it’s so beautiful. Thank you Jef and thank you Tillie! :)

i also thought this looked like a little sailboat, tillie’s feather being the sail and the little sea urchin shell, being the boat.

    I saw it as a little boat. :) But Tillie’s candle is a very sweet story too.
