Meet Rick, owner of Ashford Creek Gallery and his visiting Sparrow
Rick is one of the reasons I love to get on the road to sell our books! He and I connected immediately. What's not to love about a gallery filled with art, his wife's ceramics, books, books and more books! While we were chatting, a sparrow flew into the gallery. Rick was quick to catch it and release the little sparrow back into nature.
Did you know the sparrow symbolizes power, creativity, community, simplicity, and empowerment? They also signify friendship, caring, persistence, productivity, protection and joy. "In Chinese culture, the sparrow is an auspicious symbol of happiness."
"The sparrow teaches us to use our creativity to get around in life - think outside the box, and be creative in solving our problems." (From the website What's Your Sign)
