"Verus North"... True North

I found a delightful old children's compass at our local Cowtown flea market several weeks ago.  It immediately brought to mind the lyrics from Twila Paris' song: "True North."  The lyrics read, in part:

There’s a strong steady light 
that is guiding us home 
In the lingering night 
we were never alone...
We need an absolute compass
now more than ever before... 
True North 
And so, the journey begins as I start working on a new folk art doll... She will be holding that compass... a seeker of "Verus North!"
