We are each of us angles with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
Roman Poet & Philosopher
(c. 99 BC- c. 55 BC)
I love this quote. The idea that we cannot fly alone, but are only able to soar to the heavens when partnered with the complementary wing of our mate, resonates in my mind as a powerful truth. In this piece, I positioned one wing slightly forward while the other is angled backward. This is my attempt to symbolize my belief that oftentimes one partner leads and the other follows. One guides while the other supports. It's a balancing act that moves back and forth in perfect harmony. It was only after meeting my wife that my life began to take flight. Our union truly lifted me up and gave me the chance to achieve new heights in both my personal and professional life. I adore my beloved wife. She is truly my angle. Without here, I would have a difficult time remaining aloft for any length of time.
