A time to reflect, a time to soar...
A gift for friends, graduates, celebrating life milestones, special accomplishments, encouragement, support and acknowledging individual strength.
“Willow Tree is not necessarily a likeness; it’s a way of conveying emotion… a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory that we want to touch, or see. I hope that people can recognize subtle expressions or gestures of those they love, and from that, be able to select pieces that are uniquely meaningful for them.” Susan Lordi.
“The gesture of the figure and the bird communicates forward movement... being uplifted, moving onward; a release of hopes, dreams and spirit; of new beginnings and of endings; in celebration of a life... or in anticipation of a life together. This piece could be a way to express best wishes to someone who is taking a new path in life; on a road to recovery from illness or toward self - improvement... A hopeful symbol of peace for military families awaiting the return of their solders... An expression of sympathy to someone who has lost a loved one. The sentiment refers to the song Turn, Turn, Turn, written by Pete Seeger in 1959, adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes. In the song, there’s a contrast in each example...‘A time to be born/die, plant/reap, laugh/weep’ and so on. I like the lyrical, repetitive nature of the phrasing. At significant milestones, we often pause and reflect before moving forward, so ‘a time to reflect, a time to soar’ seemed like a nice expression for this piece. ~ Susan Lordi
