The Reason Why
If you're in Taos, New Mexico on October 17th, do come meet the ravens and me at The Charles Collins Gallery on the plaza. If you have one, bring me a raven tale during this weekend of the Taos Storytelling Festival.
The newest story came from a jewelry maker from Boston, a graduate of the esteemed North Bennet Street School. She bought this Raven Head, which I also call The Reason Why, to give to a dear friend who knew the pleasure of sitting with her dog named Bear and talking to ravens. Soon after the dog died (Oh why can't our beloved four-leggers live as long as we do?), a raven feather appeared. The owner believes that the feather is a message from Bear. This is not the first and certainly won't be the last story of ravens and the passing of a loved one.
