I felt as if I had been asleep for most of my life.
It wasn’t until I became seriously ill, living in constant fear, and hitting rock bottom until I woke up.
What woke me up was seeing another Redbubbler’s photography of a snowy owl. I remember that day years ago when time stood still and I became mute as I was basking in the glory of this beautiful photography of this beautiful creature. With much determination and research, months later on my own I found the elusive rare wild snowy owl an hour from my home.
It was spiritual and life altering. I wept the happiest tears of magical disbelief upon seeing her for the very first time. I could not believe something this precious and this beautiful was right before my very eyes.
I felt as if I had been dreaming yet I was awake.
These feelings and those days spent witnessing such a wonderful gift will forever be the highlight of my life.
I carry those moments with me at all times, for they reside in my soul.
I have lived on my own with no compassion or stable family relationship for decades and in one instant this owl took that pain away and replaced that hole in my soul with warmth, brilliance, wisdom, love and compassion.
I felt as if I dreamt myself awake♥
