Messenger, from the Roots and Wings Series by Sara Harley
life's path is unclear
but the messengers call
change is in the air
a new cycle begins

We all have bad things happen to us. Trust me when I say that it will get better.

Time does not heal all wounds.

But the passage of time does help ease our pain so that we can learn to function again.

We have to learn to live with our loss, or we are not living at all.


Messenger is from my solo Roots+Wings exhibit held at the Margaret Hennigar Public Library in February 2018. Each image was paired with verse to represent emotions ranging from devastation through rejuvenation.

I believe trees represent growth and strength, with roots to ground us in our traditions. I see birds in flight as symbols of freedom, with the power of dreams and life renewed. Together, Roots + Wings create powerful images of inspiration and tools to heal the soul. These images are a symbolic representation of emotional healing, from devastation through rejuvenation.
