100-Day Creator Challenge #28: Symbol
What visual symbol speaks to you most?
Sannu da abokai!
Today we contemplate the following:
What (visual) symbol speaks to you most?
What symbols do you find to be the most powerful examples of how you feel when you're connected with yourself and others? Where do you find these symbols in your life? Where did you first encounter them? Were you always drawn to these? What would a symbol look like if you’d designed it yourself?
In the image above, you see the koru, an unfurling fern which is a metaphor for the process of personal growth and development. The koru is also seen as a symbol of hope and the potential for new beginnings, as well as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all living things.
One of the symbols I connect with the most. (I drew spirals longer before I knew what a koru was, as I was doodling while on a phone call as a kid.)
So, what symbol speaks to you?

a word to describe how i feel about _____ | Yuelian Hong | 01/09/2023
earlier today i started to write about how certain languages don’t make the same distinctions which i take for granted in english, and i’d planned to give as one example the fact that there is no distinction between "to like” and “to love” in taiwanese hokkien, i.e. that both ideas can only be expressed using the single word “love” (愛 /

The marshmallow experiment and me
Greatly appreciated the effort, thanks!
Glad to read you called the spiral a Koru! I like the pikorua (the twist pattern). For me it symbolises bonds and being stronger together.
