Herons and lizards are natural enemies – a predator and the meal. Here, in a willow tree that lives along the peaceful Fox River, nature spirits have fashioned the two enemies into a sculptural assemblage, held together and looking at each other.
The blue heron is upper left, his head folded into his wings, his eye staring at the lizard and his bill already open, ready for his next meal.
The lizard is in part of the willow trunk that split, fell over and is now bleached. The lizard is looking up at the heron without fear.
The images are in a willow tree. Willow tree energy is soft, gentle, pliable, adaptive, psychic. It is a tree where people leave prayers. It has moon energy.
The nature spirits showed me that they are seeking to remove fear from the land itself. There is always someone larger who is a predator, but that should not become the defining energy of a situation. Be happy wherever you are.
This scenario shows how intimately connected predator and hunted are; they are a dance that takes place for survival throughout nature, and the only remedy is to acknowledge it in detachment and amusement, not in fear.
These nature sculptures are visual nodal points in a pervasive energy matrix that covers this Geneva, Illinois Fox River Valley area of the Midwest. Nature is still strongly present here. Entertainment is still focused strongly on going out and enjoying nature.
