well 'n' happy

Found on the ground at Crystal Castle. Two conjoined feathers.

In Buddhism, an analogy of the two wings of a bird is used to represent wisdom and compassion. If one wing is missing the bird cannot fly. If wisdom is present without compassion there is an imbalance. Is compassion is present without wisdom there is an imbalance. Both are needed equally to give a balanced view of life and living.
