Moons ago, my surrogate mother came to me in a dream and said, "your partner is a raven". I took this to heart and a bit jealous that it felt like he surely should have been mine. I married this raven man and tattooed the totem on my arm.
When I moved to the desert, the call of the raven to my heart became stronger. It seemed he was an omniscient presence, showing up in the most synchronistic ways. Squawking always caught my attention and I spoke to them whenever one would listen.
” I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I have been.”
