Hawks & Peacocks

A  L  O  H  A !
“In many traditions, 
hawks are sacred: 
Apollo’s messengers 
for the Greeks, 
sun symbols for the 
ancient Egyptians and, in
the case of the Lakota Sioux, 
embodiments of clear vision, 
speed and single-minded 
       John Burnside

Don't seek TRUTH, 
just stop being so invested 
in your own point of view, 
and it will reveal itself to you. 

Peacock  Car
“How come it can’t fly 
no better than a chicken?’ 
Milkman asked.

Too much tail. All that jewelry 
weighs it down. Like vanity. 
Can’t nobody fly with all that [stuff]. 
Wanna fly, you got to give up 
the [stuff] that weighs you down.’

The peacock jumped onto the 
hood of the Buick and once more 
spread its tail, sending the 
flashy Buick into oblivion.” 
           Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon

Hawks always look so hangry, Aimee's word for both hungry and angry 😀 Will keep a look out for your Royal Hawaiian Hotel ✨
