Owls have a mixed press. To some they are portents of doom, of foreboding, of death. They utter a screech that haunts the night in warning. Here the sound is more a gentle and rhythmic , “mopoke, mopoke “. On the other hand the owl is regarded as a symbol of wisdom and inner knowing. It is the little bird who sat on on the Goddess Athena’s shoulder assisting her to make fair judgement as it could see through deception, to the core. That ability to gain insight into the subconscious, into the truth of the matter in itself can be very threatening as it unmasks .
All in all the owl has a fascination and can be a very endearing and interesting subject. Lately I came across several videos of owls dancing , they do it so well and with obvious pleasure.
Enough talking just wanted to share a few recent owl inspirations.
