middle of the night

asking so many questions

speaking without words

a guardian in the night

sound of flapping wings – he’s gone



an artist’s interpretation of ‘hoo’

ps:  I was awaken by an owl last night.  He was on the roof – over my bedroom.  For at least an hour I listened to hoo-ing.  Then I heard the sound of flapping wings.  He was gone.

        I have walked through some dark, scary alleys … namely, the BC “fandom” boards on Pinterest. At first I was a bit worried about this semi-addiction … but now I accept it … the guy *seems* to be a genuinely nice person. With a very, very scary fan following though! o.O

        OMG – i may have to sign up for pinterest just to check this out……. if we both become ‘nutty’ fans – we can share a cell together:)

        We have a long way to go if we’re going to be as nutty as a lot if the ladies in fandom… Yowzers! You should see “Bland Sherlock Fantasies” too… That one is so stupid-funny it’s a hoot. I think *that* one is on Tumbr; found it via Pinterest tho.

    We have a bloody owl in the tree in our backyard. Whilst usually an animal lover I swear if I ever get my hands on this bird….
