"The swan song is a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort, or performance given just before death or retirement. The phrase refers to an ancient belief that swans sing a beautiful song just before their death, having been silent during most of their lifetime."
I've long been fascinated with swans, and their representation in art, music, dance, mythology, and literature. In many ways, the concept of the "Swan Song", is a bit of a reminder for me of my own mortality, something which I've been more aware of than ever since the sudden loss of my Father in 2008. "Memento Mori" - Latin for, "Remember, you must die" begs the question of each and every one of us... what will you leave behind? How will you use your gifts? What beautiful song will you sing?
Swan Song Provisions is a collective site gathering together the fruits of my labors and passions, over the last several years. The items offered on this site may vary drastically, as I grow to discern exactly what direction I'm meant to go in!
Currently, I own and operate Corva Bella Farm, with my son Connor Michael. We raise rare Kunekune pigs and Salmon Faverolles chickens, and produce gourmet pork, sausage, and lard-based products such as soaps, salves and balms. I also make jams, jellies, spice mixes and baked goods.
Under the name of "Cygnea Cantio" (that's "Swan Song" in Latin), I handcraft one of a kind rosaries and custom devotional items. And I also have been handcrafting cosmetics and skincare items for the past 22 years under the brand Aromaleigh Cosmetics. This site may begin featuring some select Aromaleigh products in the future under the Swan Song brand.
