Owl started it all.
Owl showed up at work when I was in doubt and confusion to sort out my way. And has had a history of appearing when I have hit rock bottom, and when patience has ended.
Today, after a lot of tension and worry I came back to work after lunch to find an injured owl in surgery. He was found on the side of the road, probably eating roadkill skunk (as he was pretty stinky). The Great Horned Owl has no problem eating skunk as he has no sense of smell.
A part of his wing was broken with the bone protruding. Unfortunately, it was determined that the best option would be euthanasia.
This Owl was young and thin. Probably due to the injury, which was not a new injury, he was eating what he could find for survival. A literal translation would be sometimes you have to eat the undelectable because that’s what you have to do.
I will have to spend time thinking upon this.
