"Raven Medicine" detail

When my friend's son Matthew died, we were in the Painted Desert in Arizona.   That day we saw many Palavayu petroglyphs in the Pueblos, and a pair of ravens followed us around the park, visited with us and even flew so close to our moving car that we had to stop to avoid hurting them.  At home, his mom saw a flock of black birds as she walked outside.  So, I have a new totem animal now, one that will help me with life's questions and land nearby when I need a spirit friend.
