The Owl

The Owl

The owl came to visit again this evening. It’s been awhile. Stayed for about 5 minutes then off it went. Maybe I should give it a name since this has been ongoing.

The weird thing about this owl is that when I lived down the road about a quarter-mile, an owl sat on the roof peak above my bedroom. I was never able to see it. It came and went for years. I’ve been at my new place for four years and it’s been hanging out there.

Did you know the owl was a symbol for Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy, before the Greeks gave their pantheon human forms. According to myth, an owl sat on Athena’s blind side, so that she could see the whole truth (more about owl symbolism).

Update: The owl is officially named Wisdom.
