Writer’s Block: A charming defense

My patronus  is the crow (not Raven, Crow), although Coyote’s and Bears are my frequent teachers and protectors as well.What is ironic is that these are my animal protectors from an Italian/European Strega background (Wild Yellow Dog was how I knew Coyote growing up) and now I live in the southwest where they play the same roles in the stories. The crow is wise, playful and very loyal. One cannot know crows well without admiring and befriending the species, like many (including humuns) whose jobs are in clean-up Corvids are unfortunately not popular in modern society except for the angst/horror image of  ‘Poe’ish Ravens.
