Barn Owl by ryark Barn Owl by ryark
I really love owls. I think it has a lot to do with the Jim Henson movie Labyrinth, where David Bowie is sometimes some sort of owl. The connection in my mind between owls and sexiness and power must have evolved from that movie.

Beautiful Picture. I adore Barn Owls although I've never seen a live one. Interestingly, that in folklore Barn owls are connected with magic and the realm of spirits. Maybe that's why they used it in Labyrinth.

OMG...thats so weird...I went searching for Barn Owls because of that movie!! I feel the same way about owls. The are potent in mythology and beauty....and so true that the are, in a way, quite sexy. :D

you're welcome

and thank you -- my avatar is an indication of my interests
the modified color wheel to show that I'm a visual artist
the 'Eye of Horus' because I'm a nut for anything ancient Egyptian:lol:

Rune would be a lovely name for a girl child

There's no X, that was an emoticon.....Uhm, but Egypwicc is the belief I created (mostly fer me) that's a mix of Egyptianist an Wicca.

Egyptianist: Belief in the Gods an Goddesses, an their power over the elements. The whole afterlife process is included.

Wicca: The respect of Mother Nature (the Goddess) an the energies of the universe. Being a Pisces, I'm very intuned with human energies.

My husband is a practicing Pagan and believes in the Goddess, so I do know what Wicca is :) I thought that might be what you were meaning but wanted to be sure.
