I looked on the web for spirit animal and took the test to find out what my spirit animal is and I am not surprised at all that I am the owl.
I am very happy to be by myself, or with only my core group of supportive people, seeking a creative outlet. It is quite the coincidence that my mom gave me the nickname of Hootiebird when I was a little girl, and that is why I named my blog Hootiebirds art journal. Regardless, I have a love/hate relationship with owls.
Back in the early eighties, my dad worked at a mill and they lost business due to regulations for Spotted owls. More recently, I lost two chickens to an owl hunting in my neighborhood.
The love part comes from that fact that I think the owl is beautiful and majestic. Unafraid to be alone. I admire them, and wish that I could be as courageous in my own life.
