We all are familiar with road signs. They protect us from harm. They guide us to new locations. They help us find our way.
Recently as I drove 2108 Km I had many opportunity to observe road signs. There were the typical ones that help me know how far I had to the next gas station…..which by the way in Northern Ontario they are few and far between. There were signs warning of the possibility of Moose crossing the roads. I was disappointed I did not see one but glad I did not “run” into one.
The signs that got my attention were reoccurring patterns of animals. It started out with the Ravens. Ravens are found on the side of the highway doing as nature intended cleaning up the animals who did not survive the crossing of the road. It was the Raven in the sky that made me take note. As I travelled along a part of the highway that would be generally steep and winding a single Raven would fly towards my car circle around and escort me down the hill. The further I travelled the more I would see a lone Raven escorting me. I could sense the message from the Raven of “come along with me I will guide the way.” I needed to look up the meaning of the raven and this is what I discovered.
