Congratulations to Lindsay and Jon. My perfect record of no rain came to an end with a stormy Whidbey Island wedding. Thanks for the adventurous spirit as we headed to down to the beach to get blown away in gale wind.

The Owl Who Came To Visit
About a week ago an Owl came to visit. She sat and sat out on a branch outside my home for hours, here and there she twisted her head all the way to the back like owls do, unbothered by pesky birds who were trying very hard to get her to leave. Owl just sat there and at times even falling asleep. I watched her from very close, through my lens, taking a dozen pictures, again, she was undisturbed.
Some of those who know me, know that Owl has been my love and companion for years and years, back in Italy when at the young age of 5, I’d stay up nights to wait for her to come to the fig tree next to my bedroom window. In Italy Owls are bad omens, but that reputation bothered me not, I still loved her and still wanted to see her, hoot at her and wait for her to answer. My mom nicknamed me Owl Eyes. which later became one of my tattoos. Later on, Native Americans I have known have told me that I have Owl medicine, many friends have brought me her feathers and my life is adorned with Owl figurines, cards and wine glasses. Owl is my forever friend.
But what does Owl symbolizes? If I look it up on line, I find that overall Owl is a symbol of being able to navigate any darkness in our life, a symbol of wisdom and magic. Intuition, ability to see what others do not see. Capacity to see beyond deceit and masks. The presence of the Owl announces change. The traditional meaning of the Owl spirit animal is the announcer of death, most likely symbolic like a life transition, change
What then, did she come to tell me a week ago? Maybe to sit and wait, to not be discouraged by pesky “birds”. To not trust and make sure I am safe and pay attention to what’s around me. By choosing my battles well and not waste energy on piddly things or on people who are not worthy. To relax and wait…Change will come, it always does. Owl that came to visit a week ago, made me happy.
I hope that Owl comes to visit you as well.
