Number 3 in my series on the 'society is a nest' thinkings.
I was really taken by the image of this woman walking in her dirty, decaying surroundings. This is her nest.
This is not to suggest that her nest will raise damaged birds, that would be a terrible assumption. I am more making an comment on the fact that our societies don't always make very good nests, they don't always provide environments that are places of nuture, comfort, safety and love.
There seems to be an unequal distribution of good nests for children to grow up in. I don't think the rich nessecarily have better nests. That would also be a terrible assumption. I think they are better decorated but not nessecarily better made.
The cross bears the words " Non Identificado" and is a memorial for an unidentified person who tried to flee his nest, in search of a better one across the border but died at the fence put up by border officials to keep him there.
It raises a lot of questions for me... I hope that he found his nest, that place of nuture, peace and happiness he was looking for.
It's not all doom and gloom...I know some nests work well. It just really gets to me that all nests aren't made equal. That some fail and some fall. I hope your nest is your place of safety, comfort and love. My best wishes to you all! Lisa :)
