good omen or?

June 19, 2008

This morning I found a feather on the ground. Wing feather, large, soft, “striped”.

I believe it is an owl feather. I’ve never seen an owl feather of this ilk–so large and “striped” as this is. But I recognize the velvet quality of an owl feather. And, when I saw it on the ground, pretty much it told me it was from an owl.

Some people believe that owls portend death. Like the “death” card in tarot, I believe that death is symbolic of endings. So it seems only right that I found this feather outside the door of the office which will very soon be my former place of employment.

However, I am not so inclined to view owls as symbols of death, as much as they are so many other things.
