Wildwood COTD : Queen of Vessels

It’s FRIDAY and today the Queen of Vessels comes out to join us. As she jumps from the low river up the waterfall, she launches herself into the unknown, the environment changes, the comfortable environment is left behind, but only temporarily.

What message could she possibly have for us today? She’s the queen of emotions, the loving mother. Salmon who are about ready to spawn will do anything it takes to get to where they want to get to. Nothing will stand in their way if their emotions are driving them. They can be single-minded to the detriment of anything and everything else, but she has some good qualities too!

She’s warm, emotionally supportive, kind, virtuous, devoted, simplistic. She’s very connected to the great honesty, generosity and self-sacrifice. Are these qualities that you see in yourself? I often aim to be the Queen of Vessels (Cups in RWS). John and Mark attribute her with facing and dealing with the most difficult problems with grace and civility.  I can only hope to be like that each day, but occasionally, like any human, I sometimes need reminding.

There is very little I can add to this, so I shan’t, but I’ll leave you with the thought of being graceful and motherly. *happy sigh* If you would like or you are in need of my help,you can find me here. Enjoy your Friday!
