Crows, for us who appreciate them, are powerful beings. They remind us that nature matters. They inspire us. Crows can be seen as the embodiment of a winning and cunning nature. At the same time, they protect each other and actually hold funeral services for their fallen comrades. This is a cool bird that is so much more than a bird. This is a creature that some say is a messenger for the other side. It is a powerful animal totem. The crow is an immense symbol of strength, resilience and craftiness. Some say the crow is a symbol for death and evil. For me, however, the crow has been a saving grace so, so many times. Actually, I still have an art career due to crows. People who collect my crow paintings feel a kinship with me and how I paint them.
Today, I thank the crows and the humans who give them their due and respect.
