Have you seen Susanna Gordon’s Winged Messengers? They were featured in Somerset Life Magazine and she has them on her blog. Aren’t they just wonderful? I contacted Susanna and asked if she wanted to send me one I would be happy to put it up here in Esperance.
Well, earlier this week this turned up in the post
I was so excited that this parcel arrived. Inside was a lovely letter from Susanna and two winged messengers for me to put up in town. I couldn’t resist putting them up in the family room so I could see what they looked like.
The first winged messenger with the message “You are Loved” I put at the steps of the war memorial in the middle of town. After I had put it up I watched and waited for a little while, and saw some people stop and read the message. The wings are still there at the memorial, three days later. Interestingly yesterday was the 67th anniversary of the bombing of Darwin I wasn’t aware of this when I placed the wings there.
The other set of wings with the message “You will be okay” I placed on bench at the Pet Cemetary at Monjingup Reserve. It is an A class reserve located just out of town. My father in law set up the reserve to conserve the area. It is a beautiful place. There is a recreation area with a hedge maze, and giant chess set. A Memorial grove for returned servicemen, as well as beautiful walktrails.
I can’t wait to see where else Susanna’s winged messengers turn up!
