Go ahead, call me the Turkey Lady. They keep showing up. Like family.
So, I don't know what Owen was thinking when this pair strolled by the back door. He watched them crisscrossing in the grass, which way should we go, looked at me once, then laid his head back down on his front paws. (There were babies out there too!)
ps. The weather's been heavenly here in Northeast PA; we've been watching birds, eating ice cream, swimming in the river; soaking up this late August magic. We have *not been shoveling truck loads of stone. Amen.
Here's to the magic of shared blessings.
TURKEY: Shared Blessings and Harvest
"The turkey is sometimes called the earth eagle. It has a long history of association with spirituality and the honoring of the Earth Mother. It is a symbol of all the blessings that the Earth contains, along with the ability to use them to their greatest advantage."
- from Animal Speak by Ted Andrews
