  1. An enchanting piece. I’m wondering, would bat claws help me see in daytime darkness? That would indeed be potent magic.

      (((Susan))) these words from “A Field Guide to Getting Lost” by Rebecca Solnit are in there too-
      “…. The weight of a dream is not in proportion to it’s size. Some dreams are made of fog, some of lace, some of lead. Some dreams seem to be made out of less than the usual debris of the psyche than bolts of lightning sent from outside.”

  7. shemann says:

    gathering afoot here for peace!

  8. Liz A says:

    The word shamanic came to me … this piece feels as potent as the night it carries in its name

  9. i love the carnelian…used to have a stone….what became of it?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Grace))) your magic is set deep in this piece, x fingers your carnelian will show up when it’s ready, I have two tiny emeralds that I keep hoping will reapppear as I work my way through the collected stuff of a lifetime, haven’t seen them for 30 years…

    bat claws!!!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Velma))) they are such beautiful animals, important pollinators for our fragile Australian ecosystem, when the Ironbark across the road is in flower there’s a party every night!

  11. Margaret Johnson says:

    The Bat claws are beautiful, and I LOVE Bats….ox

  12. Susan says:

    the beads are exquisite!

  13. Margaret Johnson says:

    We had lots of Bats around, when we lived in Melbourne, but I think it’s too cold for them here. Although we do have lots of Micro bats here, which are gorgeous. Got to hold one once when it came inside, so fragile!!….ox

    • Mo Crow says:

      when I lived out in the bush half a lifetime ago a tiny microbat lived under my raincoat hanging on the back door, it would take a little spin around the room each evening before flying out for the night, so swift it was almost invisible!
