In mythology there may be no more fascinating animal than the beautiful phoenix. These eagle-like creatures have strong connections to the sun in Greek and Roman mythologies. The bird is often depicted in art with fire around it, and there are many accounts of phoenixes bursting into flames, only to be reborn again from it’s own ashes. TIn a way, the life of the phoenix can be a metaphor for lots of people today. There are certainly times where we may “catch fire” and burn out, only to come back stronger after the fact!
