the end of another year has come. no hibernation for me, this holiday season has been filled with familia. i don’t remember the last time i have spent so much time with blood-related family. i remember as a child and teen, i (for the most part) enjoyed being surrounded by cousins, tías, and grandparents. the last few years have been fairly quiet during the holidays. i’ve stayed away for the most part. but this year i had great excuses to stay close.
my grandfather has moved to los angeles, to my parents house. his adventurous and humorous spirit cracks me up, he fills any room with luz. my sister and M are also in town. they’ve been staying with me in my crunched up little studio. its been a blessing, didn’t realize how isolated i was until i had visitors stay with me. i am going to miss them so much when they go next week. i wish they wouldn’t go. but i know they both want to move here soon, so patient i will be.
on a more random note-
hummingbirds have shown themselves twice this week, i got curious and looked up the totem meaning for the little bird. here is what the site read:
It is not commonly known that the fluttering wings of the hummingbird move in the pattern of an infinity symbol – further solidifying their symbolism of eternity, continuity, and infinity.
By observing the Hummingbird, we see they are seemingly tireless. Always actively seeking the sweetest nectar, they remind us to forever seek out the good in life and the beauty in each day.
Amazing migrators, some Hummingbirds are known to wing their way as far as 2000 miles to reach their destination. This quality reminds us to be persistent in the persuit of our dreams, and adopt the tenacity of the Hummingbird in our lives.
The Hummingbird animal totem is a messenger of hope and jubilation.
Hummingbird Animal Totems offer attributes like:
The Hummingbird animal totem most important message to you is:
“The sweetest nectar is within!”
thinking i may get a hummingbird tattoo soon. left shoulder. i’ve been looking for a symbol for tenderness, strength, and self-love. i think the chuparosa has shown itself for a reason…i love how they remind us to look for the good in life, always.
more soon, xo.
