DAY 20 – TRIUMPH AND CONTRAST
I was so triumphant when I found the Owl in the tree and so much more so when I was able to capture it with my Nikon D60. Can you see it? Who Who Whooo
Every year Owls nest in this same tree, raising one Owlet. They feed it, love it, teach it about owl life, flying and let it set out to make a life of its’ own.
I have a special affinity for owls. They are beautiful, silent and can see in the dark. Owl is one of my totems.
The Owl, connected to Athena, represents wisdom, intuition and being able to see beyond deception. Often seen as being associated with the underworld, a protector of the night and in some cultures accompanies the dead to the afterlife.
I also played Owl in a children’s theatre production of Winnie the Pooh. I don’t know if I was successful or not as I scared most of the kids.
