I've had a thing for owls for as long as I can remember. One of my very first memories is of a bulletin board in my playroom with a tiny little owl in the corner of it, and that little owl was always my favorite thing about it. I have two fairly large owl tattoos. Owls have been present, in one form or another, in several important moments in my life. If I bought into the idea of spirit animals? The owl is for me, all the way. I do try, however, to not purchase every little owl thing that I see, and that's become challenging in the last few years. Owls are everywhere! They are, I think, the woodland creature du jour. Every now and again, though, I see one that needs to come home with me, and while browsing at a Japanese dollar store downtown recently, I found the little duder pictured above. He's pretty great, right?
