Symbols are practically everywhere some old, some new, and some assigned to a giving meaning that we may not even know. I’ve always been fascinated with the them such as  ranging from persistently seeing a butterfly to a design I know nothing about.

Symbol – mark, sign. Or word that indicates, signifies or understood as representing an idea, object, or relationship. 

Symbols go beyond what is known or seen by creating linkages between otherwise or very different concepts and experiences.
