Here is a good write-up on the symbolic meaning of the sparrow. Safety in numbers certainly would be something to remember on the road, but the rest really means a lot too! Reminder to be productive... to be creative... & to try to keep our burdens light. She's ever vigilant in her goals, and she has a spiritual side to her too! And of course we can't forget that sparrows also represent freedom! Can't get any more precise than that!
So... Freedom, Joy, Inclusion, Creativity, Simplicity, Protection, Community, Productivity, Friendliness & Spirituality....
Well, gypsy sparrow may not be able to officially be my name, but she will certainly be my animal totem! Even though i'm a 'kat'! We all need to get along! Hehe... ;-)

|the vagabond life...|
And really, when i get down to it... my move to Yellowknife IS the beginning of my nomad life! I mean, i'll be leaving my friend to look after my house & cats, and will be moving on down the road & living in a new town... for a year. I'll just be staying in my first stop for a lot longer than most towns, that's all.
This whole thing is doable only if i have my best friend to stay with the house (good thing he loves it and is willing to pay for it) ... AND my "patron" is still able to finance costs... rent, food & travel. Without that... i'm screwed. So, as long as these blocks are in place, i really need to take advantage of them! Because who knows how long they will last! *knock on wood*... The stars are aligned to be a vagabond, so, i had better get my *ss in gear and DO IT! While i can! Hopefully it will stay this way for a very long time...but i'll just cross those bridges when i get to them. One step at a time, and it looks like a vagabond is the first step!
