Lately it seems like something will catch my eye, only to discover later that there is need to go deeper. A clue to find, like an advent door on a decorative Christmas calendar. Several weeks ago, this vintage snow orb music box was one of those things. The monuments in Washington, D.C. were featured together in miniature: The Capitol Building, White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and the Jefferson Memorial. When you shake the globe, glitter falls like snow. And, the music plays the Battle Hymn of the Republic.
When I came home from the Farmers' Market, without thinking much about it, I set the patriotic orb on the coffee table by the angel statue holding a star. They were a good pair. Our country needs our prayers right now for peace, harmony, and forgiveness.
While working on the blog, an angel thought came to look up the symbolism of the actual placement of these historic monuments. On-line, I caught a fish. An article on how they might have been strategically placed to form an image of a fish, cradled between the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers.
Reminds me of another surprising fish that showed up on our driveway in January. A Fish symbol outlined by light.
Love and blessings,
