Myth is the public dream, and dream is the private myth. – Joseph Campbell

Who Said Owls Are Wise?
Who said owls are wise?
Is it that birds of size
Are better at thinking?
Maybe they are shrinking
violets. In day to day life,
shy and adverse to strife.
Their hoots make us trust
They know more than us.
The owl is a magnificent bird,
with a call like few I’ve heard.
It is a hoot – or a “who, who?”
Was he calling me or really you?
Mister Owl, my friend; I think you’d be wise
To make sure we look into those big eyes.
We know we must have two big ears as well,
‘Cause we’re shouldn’t miss the tale you’ll tell.
What can we learn from you if you’re smart?
What will you say that we can take to heart?
