"When you see a turkey vulture in the sky, remind yourself to let go of the struggle" —G
Turkey Vultures are not scavengers; they are healers. Worthy of their name and true nature, Cathartes Aura, AKA "golden purifiers," cleanse carrion's death and disease on Mother Earth, so we may carry on, live long, and prosper. Their strong sense of family and community comes from bonding relationships with each other and the world. Pairs mate for life, raising and feeding their young together. These peaceful non-aggressive souls are aware of their environment, responsibilities, and limitations and use their intelligence and wisdom to survive. They understand that to see the big picture, they must let go of the struggle to take flight and soar.

Naturally, they belonged on a tote.
