Those wings up on the banner are a fancier version of an image I’ve been drawing ever since I was a child. I can’t remember when I started drawing little circles with wings. I do remember that in class whenever the teacher said something I particularly liked I’d put a little winged sphere in the margin of my notes.
At some point I learned that the winged sphere was an ancient Egyptian sun symbol. That came as a surprise. I think of it as an idea, or maybe a piece of information, winging its way to Earth.
Or maybe it’s a planet–a star that moves and flies. Maybe it’s Mercury, the planet named for the guy with the wings on his cap and on his heels, the messenger of the gods.
According to astrology, my Sun sign is Gemini and Gemini is an air sign, so there’s an affinity with flight and with winged things. Paul McCartney, who has the same birthday as me, once had a group called Wings.
As a Gemini, I get a kick out of passing on helpful information. So I hope this website has some information you can use–maybe even some new ideas. And I hope it’s easy to navigate. Let me know how I’m doing!
