Owls have long been the subject of myth and superstition. Are these mysterious, large-eyed, nocturnal creatures fearsome? Wise? Ghostly? I think probably all of the above. Owls are enigmatic. They are beautiful, mysterious, intriguing, fierce, spooky and thanks to Harry Potter Owls are more enchanting than ever before.
We have this short tale from Nia Maher who lives in Prescott, Arizona:
I have always been fascinated with owls. They seem so wise and scary at the same time. I once had one save my life and I can’t explain it.
I was driving home from a gig on a dark autumn night. We had just played at a local bar and I was excited. I wasn’t watching the road and had an accident. When I woke up my car was wrapped around a tree and I was pinned down. Scared, I looked for my cell phone, but it was nowhere to be found. I looked out the smashed window and there was an owl. He looked right at me or rather through me. I can’t explain it, I just felt like everything was going to be okay. I passed out. I woke up next in the hospital. I had some broken bones and a concussion, but would fully recover. I know this is not much of a story, and I don’t know why, but I thank that owl for being there. – Nia Maher
Well, I thank that owl as well. Owls are truly something odd and there is so much we can learn from them. Thank you for your story Nia.
