DR HANNETJIE SHARES HOW THE OVER THE MOON CLUB
LOGO WAS CHOSEN
Those of you who know me already will probably also know that I love
peacocks and that for a while there were three of them gracing our garden
here at home. To me, very few things are as magnificent as a peacock in full
display and their beauty more than compensates for their awkward calls,
especially during mating season.
I often had the pleasure of them showing off right at my office window,
which they used as their personal preening mirror. What a spectacular sight
and fascinating krrr - sound as they strut forwards and back, shimmying and
rustling their feathers as a dancer would rustle a fan.
Unfortunately some of our neighbours were a little less enamoured with their
presence than me and after a few rather unpleasant altercations and a visit
from the police, the peacocks had to find another home.
They now live at the zoo and from time to time I visit them and fall in love all over again.
(Did you know that the peacock is India’s national bird? Hmmm, that’s interesting for me considering that I believe that I’ve had incarnations in India – interesting throwback!)
THE PEACOCK AND FULL MOON – SYMBOLS OF THE OVER THE MOON CLUB
We chose the peacock as our logo because of its rich complexity. It is a symbol found in many cultures, representing royalty, abundance and many blessings. Amongst other things:
For the Over the Moon Club all the glorious tail feathers, each one a masterpiece in its own right,represent our OTM community, achieving true splendor through the collective magnificence of its members.
In our logo the peacock is silhouetted against the backdrop of the bright, expansive full moon in vivid sunflower yellow, the colour of communication, joy, sharing, fun and happiness.
I hope you will come to love our symbols and logo as much as I do and please join our group of fabulous friends at the OTM Club.
