Swedenborg’s Angel

Swedenborg's Angels are souls that have chosen Heaven.  They have no need of words; all one angel has to do is think of another, and that other Angel will appear beside him. Two people who have loved one another on earth make a single Angel. Photography by Anastasia Traina ~2014~

The Nightjar

Caprimulgus europaeus ~  Is a small bird with huge eyes, it is mostly nocturnal and so is rarely seen.  Legend has it that the soul of an unbaptized child will take the form of a Nightjar, condemned to wander about the world eternally... Photo by Anastasia Traina ~ 2014~
