People often say that angels leave a white feather as a sign that they are there. But I make my angels work hard! I have been known to shout at them, swear at them, and even demand that they get down off their fluffy cloud and do it themselves if it is so easy!
When it comes to angel signs I am not easily satisfied. I demand more than a little fluffy white feather.
A few years ago I was looking after my friend's apartment in Toulouse when I discovered a large park with a small man-made lake nearby. It had lily pads and flowers growing on the water and bushes and tall grasses growing round the edges. There was a fountain in the middle and a large number of ducks swimming around. They were mallards - brown females and green males.
I sat on a log seat admiring the view. I noticed some little fluffy white feathers on the ground near my feet. I told my angels, "You call that a sign? It looks like road kill! You'll have to do better than that..." I looked up again and resumed admiring the lake.
A few seconds later, a pure white duck swam out from behind a bush, right at the waters edge in front of me. It was the only white bird in sight. "Ok," I conceded, "That is a sign!" I could almost hear my angels teasing me, "Is that enough white feathers for you?"
Just how inventive can my angels be with their feather signs?
