a bunch of hoots

The previous owners of our first house,
had an owl collection
tucked away in the attic.

It was an interesting bunch of owls that we came across...
hand carved owls,
an owl candle, glass owls, white ceramic owls
with red eyes, all sorts of owl knick knacks.

I considered keeping the set,
but in its entirety it was about 20-25 pieces,
and to put it frank--
some of them scared me
and/or
were a far stretch
in resembling an owl.

However, I believe I ended up keeping 6-8 of them.
If I can locate them in my garage would you like to see
this fine collection?
I'll consider searching.

These owls here,
are my type of owls.

this owl is inspiration.
he welcomes life
in a soar with wide-open wings,
breathing and hooting
ditties of rhythm to what would otherwise be
redundant, dreary-old owl tales.
his sound enlivens the soul;
while
his presence radiates infectious warmth
during long fall nights.

this owl is wise,
cautious and methodical.
he embraces truth where others slander,
and feels the aching pains and triumphs of tomorrow.
he's a philosopher,
an author of his life;
inviting others to see for themselves.
"think," he encourages.
"think," and
"find your own truth."


he may be smaller than the others, but
 this owl is destined to lead.
he strives for the unthinkable,
believing in the
treasure that lie ahead.
Others heed his message;
he's of noble and true character.
Eventually, after many moons,
his wingspan will surpass his
companions,
and they'll look to him to do it all--

inspire.
lead.
and give
wisdom.

These treasures are for the wise.
You are wise.

They'll be in the shop at 9am tomorrow!
UPDATE: they are in the shop
and one of them is featured here!

Unfortunately, the big news will have to wait until tomorrow, too.

Thanks Kaneischa! My Etsy shop is lots of fun!

For the rest of you-Sounds like I'll be searching for those owls very soon. ;)

Glad you like the new book marks!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
