The wise, old owl. Not the young owl, for wisdom comes with age. The owl exemplifies wisdom; sitting and listening in the light and talking in the darkness. An owl just watches, listens, and learns in the light; the Light is the only provider of wisdom. After listening in the light, the owl speaks in the darkness, and what does an owl say? Who. In the same way, when we are surrounded by darkness, the wisdom that we have been granted stops us and reminds us, who. Who is this life for, who is worthy, and who is more than anything we can ever say or do. In the ways of the wise, old owl, let us proceed.
