Design A Day, Influences

A Design a Day – Day 71 (A Thanksgiving Week Tribute to Those I Love)

Today’s charm is dedicated to my soul-mate, my husband Andy:

Watercolor and Gouche Gold, Enamel, Amethyst, and Diamond "Pisces" Charm Rendering by Joana Miranda

I’ve naively wondered why my husband is a Pisces when he’d rather be eating meat than fish; furthermore, water, whether it be for swimming or showering, has to be precisely a certain temperature before he’ll even test it with his little toe.   Since he didn’t come with a manual when we got married, I’ve learned how to combine my sign (Taurus) with his somewhat by trial and error, the school of hard knocks, and lots of love (which has always been reciprocated equally.)  Today I researched Pisces for this post and had one of those “ah ha” moments.

Traditional Pisces traits are:

Imaginative and sensitive

Compassionate and kind

Selfless and unworldly

Intuitive and sympathetic

On the dark side…

Escapist and idealistic

Secretive and vague

Weak-willed and easily led

While I won’t reveal which of these traits jumps off the page at me most, I will say that my husband is one of the kindest, gentlest, and most compassionate creatures inhabiting my earth.
