black raven

corbeau noir | cuervo negro | bele beltza

How do we learn to become more and more fearless and flexible, more and more able to play like a raven in the wind? The wilder the weather, the ravens love it. They challenge the wind. They play on it, they float on it. It’s a game. hardy and fearless, playful and joyful. The elements have strengthened them. They’ve developed a zest for challenge and for life. this adds up to a tremendous beauty and inspiration and uplifting feeling. The same goes for us.
