Cedar Waxwing Silhouette — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Spiritualists believe waxwings to be a symbol of selfless generosity.
The symbolism of the waxwing totem is believed to teach selflessness
and the practice of giving to others for their benefit, and not your own. 
Waxwings are traditionally associated with the politeness you should have
when you give away to others the thing you have craved for or cherished for so long.

— James Common

“Death” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

loneliness,
decrepitude,
pain,
debilitation,
depression,
senility.
After a few years of those,
I imagine death presents like a
holiday at the beach.
