Artist's Description

My heart is racing a million miles a minute. Forgot to take my heart meds today, and for good reason.
Something severely disappointing happened today, and I was faced with either letting it get me down or go for a walk and clear my mind. So as I left my place, I ran into my best friend. We chose to go to a place to feed and photograph our favourite squirrels. We encountered a very nice man, we asked what he was looking for and he said an owl! I nearly fell right over and felt my heart in my throat. words can NOT describe what happens to me when I encounter an owl. Some people want money, fame, a beautiful lover, not me, I would take an owl over that any day. So a bunch of us scattered out looking. Something deep within me told me I would be the first to spot him. I looked into the distance, and sure enough, I seen my very first wild and free great horned owl. I could barely breathe. There was not much sun and it was incredibly windy. I stood there for minutes and tried to stop my hands from shaking (due to lyme and excitement) and snapped what I could. As I watched this marvelous creature so many lessons were revealed to me. To focus on the good, that every day, every minute we have a choice. We have a choice whether or not to let things consume us.
For the minutes I had with this beautiful creature it occured to me fate interviened yet again and bestoyed this gift to me, as a sign of hope, to always keep going and trying, no matter how bleak things can get.
Interesting tidbit, I was talking to these nice birders, and this is the 2nd photographer I met in the Ottawa area besides myself who got bit by a tick! 2 out of the 3 of us have confirmed lyme disease.

Taken in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
