    I think this is just beautiful Mo….WOW!!!

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks Eliene, it’s for our friend Eric who is having a difficult time seeing with the cataracts clouding his vision… the good news is he has an appointment with an eye surgeon and will be able to see clearly again in the not too faraway!

  2. Carol says:

    A wonderful talisman for Eric, Mo, so very beautiful and made with love. ((((Mo))))

      thanks Carol it’s on it’s way to Far North Queensland along with this poem for the Librans-
      October, Month Without Gods

      The Japanese think this is the month-without-gods.
      They celebrate it this way. They don’t alliterate October
      with gold falling from the fragile trees,
      or with revolutions that changed history.
      October, like a truce. Like an absence of everything
      that exceeds limits. May it be for us
      liberation. Because now they don’t exhibit
      the relentless naked gods of summer,
      the too many gods, and so much remains
      for the child of winter to be born,
      and our sight doesn’t reach any further, from this
      month of distances, month of far aways,
      imperfect, attained, fortuitous. If only it would be
      like this for us. Without the eight million
      gods that hide in the city or in the forest,
      the scales coincide with our statures.
      Let us be carried away by our premonitions.
      Let us write things with small letters.
      Let us celebrate October for its absence of gods.
      Let us enjoy its name because it is only a number
      in a truncated series. And forgotten. It is October.
      We have thirty days all to ourselves.

      – Juan Antonio González-Iglesias

  3. This could be very useful even if one is a seeing person…..with so much darkness abounding in our world, who doesn’t need a talisman 🙂

    A very special Talisman Mo ! Hope it serves your friend well !

    (and the poem is wonderful, though I hope to have a lucky October)

    I like the idea of October as a truce. And the talisman,as usual, is gorgeous.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I’m taking some time out to just let the crow drawings settle and make whatever wants to fall out of my hands, all our gardens are mulched & fertilised and looking beautiful before the searing sun of summer sets in as you start the gentle release of fall

  7. An object of great beauty and power, Mo…
