The origination of a half-decent superstition
October 29, 2008 | by Rachel
Since knocking on wood made the short list of popular superstitions I guess I don't know what it takes to create a really good one. But the other day while taking out the trash, or some other benign reason for stepping outside, I looked down and saw this little blue feather on my doorstep. I tried to take a picture of how perfectly it was left there, just like a small present, but I couldn't do it justice. There, right in the center of my perfectly plain cement steps sat this brilliant blue feather. It's like life was saying to me, "Have a nice day, here's a blue feather."
