Objectivity and Perspective


This totem heralds the arrival of summer
and brings warmth and protection to your home.
It also tells you to pay close attention to conversations –
are you saying more than you should? Are you listening closely to what others have to say? Swallow also brings a warning to not let small things get to you –
don’t let the mundane activities of life take up all you time
and prevent you from moving forward.
Rise above the small stuff and you will gain a better perspective on your life.
The key is objectivity.
