Mr. Owl

I have a “thing” for owls. They’re solitary, nocturnal hunters; they’re associated with the Greek goddess Athena and therefor now symbolize wisdom. The mournful and/or screeching call of an owl is also associated with death & misfortune. At any rate, I like to keep them on my side, symbolically & otherwise.

At the 2007 North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s Day festival, there was a vendor selling lovely wood-carved things. I bought Mr. Owl.
