What are your favourite symbols? Which symbols mean the most to you?
i wear a yin yang symbol around my neck. I love what it represents, that flowing balance of darkness and light, the harmony of the male and female energies, and the subtle hint that each opposite contains the other.
But I am also a fan of the more Celtic type of triple spiral, the triskele. I took this photo of buttons when I visited an exhibition at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris because in all the variations of triple spirals I have seen, this is a new one on me.
As far as I am aware, human beings are the only creatures to create and use symbols. Choosing to have around us symbols which are personally meaningful can deepen the quality of every day experiences.
