Since I was a teenager, I have felt a special connection with deer. During a difficult time in my life I found myself looking for clues that all would be well again, that things would turn out ok. I came to find that this message of health and gentleness was, for me, symbolized by deer. I doodled, sketched, painted, and wrote about deer for years, in an attempt to understand and internalize their message of hope. Eventually I got a tattoo - an image of a sleeping fawn - in order to carry this symbolism with me wherever I go. My tattoo, which I refer to as "my friend," has truly been helpful to me over the nearly five years since I got it. It is my animal medicine.
