I explore Religious- Ethical- Parental- Conundrums as metaphors in the nature of being human at this time in the world.
- Carnal as a bird
For many bird lovers, the sight of a cardinal holds special meaning, sometimes evoking emotional or spiritual feelings. They say the vibrant red bird is an uplifting, happy sign that those we have lost will live forever, so long as we keep their memory alive in our hearts.
- From a religious point:
The cardinals from a very early period, are assistants of the pope in his liturgical functions, in the care of the poor, the administration of papal finances and possessions, and the synodal (governing or advisory council) disposition of important matters.
- As a parent:
Sculpture that explores or captures Red frustrations in flight, of a mother with a tween runaway child.
Help (something or someone) to grow, develop, or succeed. To take care of (someone or something that is growing or developing) by providing food, protection, a place to live, etc. : to hold (something, such as an idea or a strong feeling) in your mind for a long time.
- The current world affairs from the standpoint of being human.

Something is metaphorical when you use it to stand for or symbolize, another thing. For example, a dark sky in a poem might be a metaphorical representation of sadness. You’ll find yourself using the adjective metaphorically all the time if you take a poetry class; poems are usually full of metaphors.
Red symbolizes energy, action, confidence, courage, and change. Red brings passion and strength to your relationships, your life, and your work. RED SPIRITUALLY EFFECTS: stability, security, grounding, courage, action, physical and emotional survival.
The artist Kandinsky said- “red alive, restless, confidently striving towards a goal, glowing, “manly maturity” Light warm red: strength, energy, joy; vermilion: glowing passion, sure strength Light cold red: youthful, pure joy, young “sound of a trumpet, strong, harsh” Fanfare, Tuba deep notes on the cello high, clear violin”
