The Three Muses Challenge - Something in the Air



The challenge this week from the The Three Muses is Something in the Air. I had a hard time deciding what I felt like doing till I was awakened this morning by a rant by one of the talk radio people. It was about the loss of nest eggs, how there is much bitterness and distrust in the air, a time of unrest....etc... etc... On top of all of that the last chick here is starting to really stretch his wings. He is ready to take the plunge away from the nest. The skills to survive are being honed, that will be the fifth to leave. I am hoping the angels are keeping them all safe on their life journeys.

So, how are your nest eggs? your chicks? are the angels watching over you and yours?

I ADORE your piece & your post is lovely! I am always hoping that the angels are watching over "my chicks" & that they all feel safe enough to truly spread their wings and 'soar'!
Hugs,
Susie

Beautifully said, beautifully done.

This piece has a wonderful message, Elizabeth. Even though most of my chicks have flown, (The last one flew out three times and keeps comng back to the nest!) they're always in my heart and thoughts along with their chicklets. It's a great comfort to know that angels surround them with love, light and protection. You've captured that comforting thought beautifully! Bravo! Hugs, Terri xoxo

My nest egg took a hit this year, but I'm blessed with two great chicks who fly in faith and make me very proud! This is a lovely piece, Elizabeth, and your words make it even more special!

Elizabeth, you have given us EVERYTHING in your most beautiful picture - a stunning background, a gorgeous image, a message to make us think and a banner to make us laugh. I love it a lot! It is so unusual and out of the frame. Fantastic.

Priscilla said...

It is funny where we draw our inspiration from huh? Thank you for sharing your story and images with us. Makes you really think.. I would like to think that we all are watched over.

Love the piece. Love the background too. Three chicks flew away then one came back again and delivered another chick. Mommy and chick are fine living in my nest.
Sigh..... Come spring she needs to find her own nest. :)Bea

Oh, your piece is really really beautiful, and the idea and story behind it are so touching. I wish all the best for you and your "chicks" - I'm sure there will be angels guarding them on their way.

love how you got the inspiration for this wonderful creation, what a combination. My 3 chicks have flown as well and are all on the other side of the pond .
I can only hope they are well equiped for life and have their guardian angels with them .
