Thursday’s Talking Point – Images of Air
In my mind, air is represented by the wind blowing across my cheek, by birds flying over head, clouds in the sky. I associate it with the Direction East here in the UK.
When I lived and practised my Pagan religion in the American State of Kansas though, I associated Air with the South. This was because the very name, Kansas, is taken from the Kanza Native American tribe and when translated means “People of the South Wind”. Anyone who has ever felt a strong summer breeze coming up from the south while standing out on the prairies of Kansas will know exactly why this fits.
People of the South Wind is also one of my favourite songs from the 70s rock group, Kansas.
I have compiled some of my favourite Images of Air. Some were found over at Wikimedia and have been credited as such.
I will feature some of the mandala images I have created using silk weave in a future post.
What images and symbols do you associate with the Element of Air?
