what was the wisest thing you have ever been told (by an owl or otherwise)?
Owls would rather be living cowards than dead heroes?
Rothfuss seems to think so! 😉
Thank you Perry! Glad you like it!
Great work 🙏
Thank you Subrata. I appreciate your kind comment and hope you are keeping well
I think snakes are also wise.
Interesting! I had not thought of snakes as wise before. Thank you for sharing!
The Great Horned Owl told me that he’s proud that he can crush the spine of a fox, and leave it alive in a tree to eat later. I asked if that was a wise decision and he said that morality is irrelevant to apex predators, but he’s proud to have generated a lot of mythological fun. He doesn’t mind posing for pictures and pots. He told me he’s the greatest bird ever and he’s willing to sign a waiver for a magazine cover in exchange for a fresh fox which he’s says are not so clever and can’t even reach Aesop’s grapes.
This was a lot of fun to read Doug. Thank you for sharing it! 🙏
