You may wonder where the name Raven’s Edge came from. When I first learned to make soap I wanted a label. The label would list the ingredients, the scent and the date I made it. All this was useful information. But, what is a label without a name. So, as I pondered what I would call my soap I thought about life around me.
I love watching the birds in my yard. I have planted many flowers and trees to attract them to my yard. I do not put out seed as this attracts the bears in the area. I don’t mind the bears wandering through the yard as they often do I would rather they not stop for extended periods of time. Crow frequently visits. I love watching him walk across the yard. So I took my attraction to crow and named it after his larger cousin the raven.
I live on a hill and over look the valley below. It is a beautiful view of green, of trees and hills. I can watch the storms roll in from the West. I am amazed by the fog that lingers in the valley and the blue sky I see above it. This hill became a mountain in my mind. My perch became the edge of that mountain.
In the print program I was using I could not find an image of raven but several images for crow came up. This whimsical image is the one I chose to represent me and my manifestations.
