Sure sign of Spring - Robin - Bird

Many of the Grimms’ heroines are killed, but reappear as harps, birds, and magical guardians for their children. Each must risk herself completely on her quest, dying in order to be reborn more powerfully. This ultimate form of initiation answers the most primitive longings inside a woman as she travels from innocence to knowledge, light to darkness, and once again to light. –From Girl to Goddess: The Heroine’s Journey through Myth and Legend by Valerie Estelle Frankel
