Door Number 12: The World Card

    Beautiful artwork dear Laura… Much love your way my friend.. ❤

  2. Thank you, sweet Sue! Yes, the Owl is one of my big totem animals, and it does tend to appear when I have choices to make or need a new perspective. I love your interpretation of my dream! Much love to you, too! ❤
