As a young lad growing up on farms in the Highveld Region of Mpumalanga (Transvaal), I spent hours at my favourite dam. Here, between trailing tresses of weeping willows, I would observe myriads of deft dragonflies. I was mesmerized by their intricate flight patterns and their ability to swiftly change direction. These ingenious beings, it seemed, glided through the air with no apparent effort! Being a young Lion cub – and a fixed sign – I was intrigued by flight!
In later years, endearing images of these industrious dragonflies never faded. Imagine my joy when, in my ever questing forays into metaphysical studies, I read that the dragonfly is considered to be a spirit animal. Furthermore, dragonflies are associated with the symbolic meaning of transformation.
Like you, I too had to deal with the aspects attributed to the dragonfly as I ventured out into the greater world. In Dancing with Dragonflies, I pay homage to these aspects through the written word and my photographic skills.
Change and transformation
Dealing with the realm of emotions and learning to dive deeper into feeling
Learning to become aware of illusions and deceits, either external or personal
In the challenging times we are facing I often think of the dragonfly’s aerial lightness and remind myself to take things lightly – even in the darkest moments. It is said the dragonfly spirit animal invites us to keep a light, positive outlook no matter what!
Shalom, Eric Svenson
