Signs & Symbols

BranchesCrossBird4_4589

Symbols stimulate ours senses in different ways.
What is holy to some is meaningless to some and antagonistic to others.
Symbols speak without words and are consequently easily misunderstood. By everyone.

Signs speak a simple language that everyone can understand. The buds on the branches for example are signs that spring is on the way.

We can also see signs and symbols where none exist. That’s the territory of poets and fools. The bird can be a symbol of life’s ability to fly higher than human creations. The sign of copper-oxide running down the wall can symbolize green blood as a reminder of pain or the crucifixion of the environment.

 

 

“Sometimes we think too much.
Sometimes we don’t think enough.
Sometimes we think we think when we remember what others have thunk.”
