I love owls. A bird that can turn its head almost all the way around. A bird that is silent as it flies. Nocturnal – which several people I know would agree I fall into that category as well.
Owls stand for different things. Wisdom. Death. Insight. In ancient Greece, an owl was associated with Athena and stood for wisdom. In many cultures around the world, it is associated with magic and helps guide clarity. In some cultures, it is the guardian between life and death – a caretaker of sorts to the underworld.
I read something that said if you are drawn to owls. you see though facades. You can see the truth. When I read it, I was surprised. I can often see behind what people are saying and into what they mean.
I want an owl tattoo on my shoulder. I just can’t find one I like. I have a few idea of how I want it to be – now to find a design I can live with. It’ll be soon.
