IF - superstition

where i lived, there's some kind of a belief that when a certain birds called "sit-uncuing" (in my mother language, that is) making noise for days/weeks around some people's place, it's believed that someone is going to die. i'm not a superstitious person, but this thing was happened when my late father passed away two years ago. for like two months the air was heavy by the birds' singing. after my father died, the noise was gone.

Lovely image, and a great story! I kind of like the idea of having my soul carried off on birdsong...

it feels like the little girl was you....
I like to think that some birds have a special purpose known only to them.... and they sing and shout, for joy knowing that .

Beautiful illo. I like the color palette and the feeling of the winds movement. I also appreciate the reference to your culture; these kinds of things are very interesting to me.

Also, thanks for stopping by my humble blog.

your picture has the same mysterious sad quality as the story you told. Sorry for your loss. Delighted by how it motivated you.

Wow! That must be terrible, Enigma. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but still it's very intriguing.

Your illo is beautiful and very touching, though.
